Hiring a new employee is a time consuming yet vitally important process. Here are some of the benefits of using Balfour Wilson Recruitment Specialists in the search for your new employee:

Time

In business, time is money and using Balfour Wilson Recruitment Specialists to source your ideal candidate will save you time as we we will take care of the initial steps of the hiring process for you. If you currently post a job using job boards, social media, radio and newspapers, there is a strong chance you will receive hundreds of CVs, the majority of which will not be qualified, or will simply not be right for the job. Finding the right applicants to interview will involve a considerable investment of your valuable time, which could be used more effectively in other aspects of your business.

Cost

It is often assumed that bringing recruitment in-house will result in a cost saving to your business.  However, when you take a closer look at the cost implications of finding the ideal candidate the costs start to add up.  Depending upon your preferred advertising method there will always be the initial outlay for the cost of the advert from £5 to £500 depending upon your chosen method.  Added to that, you need to think about the valuable staffing costs that need to be allocated to administer and facilitate the recruitment process from sifting through the endless CVs, initial conversations, the list goes on and these all take time and as previously stated, time is money.

Access to the BEST

In addition to sorting through submitted applications, Balfour Wilson Recruitment Specialists will also have access to the best talent available. This includes access to talent that is currently employed elsewhere. These qualified individuals can work discreetly with a recruitment agency when they are looking for a new challenge and opportunity. Balfour Wilson Recruitment Specialists also have our own database of qualified applicants looking for a new career challenge to pull from directly.  The next time you have an available position, you can fill it quickly and satisfactorily.
