How do you decide the recruitment agency that is right for you?

It is getting harder to find great talent in Oxfordshire. That’s not to suggest that there is a talent deficit across the region, far from it.

Rather, it’s having the wherewithal and access to the pool of talent that is available. Cue, recruitment agencies.

At the start of 2017, the media was awash with predictions that the economy would slow down and employer hiring would either plateau or drop off. This didn’t happen. In fact, demand increased month-on-month by such as extent that in January we reported a record number of new roles coming our way – a great start to what is our 20th year in business.

Indeed, having operated in Oxford for two decades, we have become an established and a respected name within the recruitment sector. The majority of these newly created positions came from current, previous or referred clients. They already knew of us or were recommended by someone who does. But what about those businesses who have never used the service of a recruitment agency before. With such a wide choice at their disposal, how do they determine which one will be right for them?

That’s the focus of the latest in a series of Employer-focused Guide: 6 Questions to Ask Your New Recruitment Agency.

In this free-to-download Guide, we will share with you the insights we have gained by working with many of the region’s largest, fastest-growing and most exciting Employers. We take you through the steps that will help you to decide the agency that will help you to full your recruitment requirements.

By the time you finish reading, you will have a greater understanding of what to look out for and, in doing so, you will pick a recruitment partner who will – should – become your staffing provider of choice not just for this role, but the one after that and more.
