Three ways to spot a good recruitment partner

Looking for a recruitment partner for your business? Unsure where to start? It’s an important decision that can affect the future of your company, so we’ve pulled together three things to look for in a recruiter that will get you off to a good start.

Experience in your industry

The first consideration you should make when searching for a recruiter is their experience. Recruiters that have experience within your industry are likely already in touch with candidates that are suitable to your vacancy. This reduces the time you spend on interviews with candidates that are not a good fit for the role.

At E1EW, our staff are given all the tools required to ensure they are highly skilled, confident and masters in their field. Our combined experience includes the following sectors;

  • Technical & Operations
  • Transport & Logistics
  • Engineering
  • IT & Telecoms
  • Graduates
  • Industrial & Manufacturing
  • Construction
  • Office Support
  • Defence
  • Energy
  • Sales & Marketing
  • Recruitment
  • Quality
  • Supply Chain
  • Highways Electrical and Infrastructure

Existing and past clients

A good recruiter will also have examples of past satisfied customers. If you are lucky, one or more of these will be in a similar industry to your business. This is a good way to gauge whether the recruiter has existing knowledge of recruiting in your sector.

At E1EW, we would be happy to share details of our existing and past recruiting experience in your sector. Contact us here.

A good screening process

The best kind of recruitment partner is one that spends a considerable amount of time pre-screening candidates before sending their CV to you. This reduces the time you have to spend on interviewing candidates that are not passionate about the role. It also means the recruiter can identify personality traits of candidates that would be a good match for the team before you even interview them.

Utilising the skills and experiences of our expert recruiters, E1EW is focused on continuous improvement and development, instilling confidence in our clients, candidates, learners and graduates alike.
