How to Collaborate with an Agency Recruiter

Whether you are a tech start-up, or an established business in your industry, finding the right employee is stressful and time-consuming. Successful companies hire an agency recruiting service to lead the search and choose the right talent. While your recruiter will be incredibly efficient in finding the right candidate, you can help streamline the process. Here are a few ways you can collaborate with an agency recruiter to find the perfect fit for your business.

Create a Profile of Your Perfect Candidate

Before you send your recruiter out on a search, it is essential that you sit down and have an in-depth discussion on what you are looking for. Spend some time brainstorming precisely what you need to fill the role. In a perfect world, what type of education, certifications, or experience would this person have? Would they be a team player? Are you looking for someone with a flair for management? Imagine what your ideal candidate looks like. Write down a list that is composed of the following categories:

  • Must have qualities
  • Preferred characteristics
  • Any deal breakers

Lay Out a Timeline for Your Agency Recruiter

Sometimes finding the right person can take some time, but sometimes you need a new hire in a hurry. Talk to your agency recruiter about when you would like to have the position filled. Depending on your timeline, it may change the strategy your agency recruiter employs to seek out qualified candidates. Generally speaking, entry-level candidates require a relatively quick search while seeking out upper management and corporate heads can take a bit longer. Set your expectations and communicate with your recruiter. They are there to make this search easy and painless for you.
