Recruitment consultancy firms are becoming increasingly popular, with more companies now relying on their expertise for filling vacant positions and projects. With that said, there are still also many businesses that aren’t sure about what the benefits of engaging a recruitment consultant. In this post, we talk about 4 benefits of seeking help for recruitment needs from recruitment consultancy firms.
Recruitment consultants have a much wider pool of candidates – one that even a big business can value as they can reach suitable candidates through their own website, networks, job fairs, job sites and social media. At Curran and Daly we have great knowledge of the Philippine labour market. We understand the available talent, where they are and how to reach out to them.

When a recruiter finds a potential candidate, they will be the ones to screen resumes, letters and other relevant info about a candidate – saving you time when you go through process of hiring. If there’s a potential match between the candidate’s profile and the job description, then the recruitment consultant will plan the interview to discuss the skills and needs of the candidate. This means you will only see suitable candidates – job seekers who have been pre-selected to match all the criteria that a company is looking for and who are worthy of consideration and an interview.
Think of recruitment consultants as your collaborators, those with inside eyes and ears in the market. You are also given access to key strategic skills, you are given the opportunity to get qualified, experienced help in your recruitment for any given period of time at short notice. Lending to you flexible solutions which can be super helpful when you are recruiting for a short term project or a longer term engagement and initiative.
Cost and Time Efficient
How much is your time worth? There are time constraints when it comes to performing a thorough search, time you could better utilize concentrating on your core business. It’s often easier for managers to interview from an agency shortlist. According to a Robert Half survey, managers spend almost one day per week overseeing poorly performing employees. Also think about the time it takes to find and train a replacement for a bad hire – you’re looking at a considerable loss of time and money.
