Full-time recruiter or Agency-what to prefer?
Many companies sooner or later face the problem associated with the selection of qualified personnel. This is especially true in the it sector, where the demand for experienced employees significantly exceeds the supply. In such a situation, there is a natural question whether to look for a full-time recruiter to solve such problems or to give preference to outsourcing and entrust the work to a specialized recruitment Agency.
It should be understood that in both cases the selection of it personnel can be equally effective and depends solely on the formulation of a specific task.
In some cases this is true, because the man who works long in a particular team, is well aware of the specifics, the needs of the company while engaged in a search with all the nuances that are simply inaccessible from the outside.
However, it recruitment can be unsuccessful if the person holding the position does not have sufficient qualifications. In this case, the following risks are possible:
too long time to search for a new employee;
loss of company image;
significant expenses for maintaining the position of recruiter;
risk of selection of unskilled employees.
If a person is really in his place, then all these disadvantages are simply absent and the company can be sure that its staff is filled with the best specialists in their field. It is important to understand that the profitability of a full-time recruiter is possible only when the company regularly needs replenishment by specialized specialists and there is no significant “turnover” of personnel.
What is attractive about outsourcing
Quite often, the search for a developer of python with a high level of qualification takes a huge amount of time, and the project at this time fully “burns”. In such cases, it is better to contact a recruitment Agency, because there will always be able to find the ideal candidate in a fairly short time.
In this case, the one-time cost of recruitment services may be slightly higher than in the previous case, but the result may be much better. It is also important to understand that not every Agency, even with all its resources, will be able to find a really narrow specialist-in this case, it is necessary to connect all possible search methods and this will increase the chance to find the optimal candidate.
