Recruitment Agency Software
Separating the good from the great
Recruitment is a tricky business. To begin with, there’s finding the balance between focusing on clients (the businesses who need personnel) and candidates (those seeking temporary or permanent work). Then there’s the need to marry up generalisation (the vast numbers of drivers, packers, data inputters and phone answerers that businesses need) and specialisation (from forensic scientists to second violinists, there are always shortages in skilled roles, and recruitment agencies ready to fill the gaps in the market).
Finally, there’s the requirement to find the right people against the desire to find them fast. It’s no good having the ideal applicant if another agency fills the vacancy before you identify, prepare and present your candidate. And it’s bad business to send a second-rate applicant because it suggests you couldn’t identify the necessary blend of skills and experience to meet the client’s needs.
And that’s where great recruitment agency software comes in.
Finding the best recruitment agency software for your business
One often neglected point is that the recruitment industry changes rapidly and that recruitment software must be adaptable to keep up with changing market trends. As geographical areas mature, their recruitment needs alter. As new industries develop, recruitment consultants need to be able to move fast, using recruiting software to support local growth. From the digital cluster in South Wales to Camden’s consulting hive, applicant tracking needs to do more than be a database, it needs to support recruitment agencies in moving fast to meet recruitment needs.
