Consultancy services are becoming increasingly popular among companies as well as candidates. At Hunter Consultancy, we not only help job seekers find jobs, but also help companies find the perfect person for the job they have a requirement for. Companies hire consultancy services like us so they do not have to go through hundreds of applications for a particular vacancy.
What is a Consultancy Service?
Nowadays, companies do not simply rely on newspaper or job portal advertisements to post a vacancy. They also hire third party to contact the job seekers and this third party is known as consultancy service or placement agency.
Hiring new employees is a time-consuming process, but it is extremely important. At Hunter Consultancy, we perform recruitment processes for organisations that don’t have enough time or expertise to recruit employees on their own. They look for suitable candidates for vacant positions with one or more companies.
A consultancy service doesn’t only help companies in recruiting employees but also helps candidates by offering them interview tips, communication tips, personality tips, CV writing tips, and tips to have an amazing LinkedIn profile. Generally, consultancy services act as middlemen that match a job vacancy with the right candidate.
Benefits of Hiring a Consultancy Service
There are a number of benefits which a consultancy service offers to companies as well as to the job seekers. Here we have mentioned some of the major benefits of hiring a consultancy service.
- Time-Saving: For companies, time is everything and using a consultancy service is a time saver. The hiring process is always time-consuming, especially the initial stages of sorting through applications. Availing consultancy services from Hunter will save time because we take complete control of every step involved in recruiting process. It is not easy for a company to select the best candidate out of hundred applicants for the job. Giving this task to someone who knows the recruitment market well, will help you save a lot of time.
- Access the Best: Consultancy services not only have the best jobs, but they also have access to the best candidates. This also includes access to the candidates that are currently employed elsewhere. Companies always benefit from a consultancy service because they always have some of the best talent already registered in their books and it means finding the perfect candidate sooner than later. Consultancy services have their own database of qualified applications that they can pull prospects out from.
- Knowledge of the Market: The best consultancy services always have their finger on the pulse of their specialist markets and can give the hiring team an insight into what is happening. They know about the talented candidates, where they are and how to reach out to them, salary rates, career expectations, available skills-sets and current hiring complexities.
The best consultancy services act as partners and collaborators and will be your eyes and ears in the market.
- Cost: It is a proven fact that bringing consultancy service in-house will result in saving cost to the business. The cost needs to be in proportion to advertising your vacancy, which can prove to be quite expensive if you’re posting single one-off jobs. At Hunter Consultancy we often have allocations on the top job boards, so you can ensure that your job posting is advertised in the right places.
Apart from the job posting costs, there is also administrative cost which should be taken into consideration of facilitating the process. Sifting through the CVs, initial conversations, etc. all these processes take a lot of time and for organisations time is money. We help you in negotiating the best salary, giving guidance and advice on what is fair and appropriate.
The best consultancy services always work with both the client and the candidate and try to help the candidate make a good impression on the potential employer.
