When we are seeking a particular service, we look for a specialist. For eye surgery, we would find a doctor who is an optical expert, rather than a general practitioner. For a patent issue, we would find a lawyer who specialises in intellectual property, rather than general legal counsel. Why should recruitment be any different?
If you’re looking to hire a Nurse Manager, would you go to a recruitment firm that handles roles across all disciplines and industries including healthcare? Or would you go to a recruitment firm that specialises purely in placing healthcare professionals?
Here are 5 reasons to work with a niche recruitment firm:
- We are consultative
Because we understand the industry and live and breathe it, we have deep knowledge about it. This means we’re able to provide insights into current trends and offer advice to both our clients and candidates to help find the best fit for their needs.
- We build relationships with the right people
We know “who’s who” in the market and have long-term relationships with high-quality clients and candidates, always keeping abreast with their business and career plans. This means we can direct our clients to the best candidates, and our candidates to the best employers.
- We focus on depth rather than breadth
When we partner with our clients we believe in fully understanding their business and culture. There is no need to waste time explaining to us what the roles mean and what candidates would have the right skills as we already have a strong understanding of the industry requirements- we just make sure the fit is right.
- We ask the right questions
We can properly interview candidates and dig deeper into their previous roles and experience. This helps us shortlist candidates who are really right for the job, so our clients find the right person quickly.
- We understand chemistry
Even if a candidate looks right on paper, if their personality and chemistry clashes with the company’s culture, it won’t ever be a good fit. As niche recruiters with long-standing relationships with our clients, we understand the cultures and introduce the right personalities as well as skill sets.
