Personnel and recruitment agencies function as a human resources department for business clients from a variety of industries. Experienced consultants from personnel and recruitment agencies have expert industry knowledge and can assist clients in sourcing people with the specific skills and experience required for different roles.
Based on the exact requirements of clients, personnel and recruitment agencies advertise on the client’s behalf or choose from their existing database to shortlist suitable candidates for initial screening, special training and assessments, reference and background checks prior to referring them to clients. Most personnel and recruitment will charge a percentage of a candidate’s starting salary for passing that candidate on to the client. Clients usually do not have to pay a fee if they do not end up appointing any candidate or can obtain rebates for unsuitable candidates. Most personnel and recruitment agencies will take care of payroll and tax issues of temporary workers.
Personnel and recruitment agencies make it possible for businesses to select suitable staff from a larger pool of candidates while saving time and trouble of going through resumes; screening candidates and taking care of the administrative matters related to the recruitment process by themselves.
