the importance of using a reputable recruitment agency
Iris Fischer, founder of FP Recruitment Agency & Executive Search has more than 15 years of experience in the Office & Commercial recruitment sector within Thailand. She is dedicated to placing the best candidates in many of the best companies and organizations in Thailand and has a growing reputation for a high level of service from both clients and job seekers. Here are the reasons she believes it is so important for companies looking for new recruits to ensure they go through a reputable recruitment company.
Safety in your search
Job scams are on the rise in Thailand, so ensure you are using an agency who is a member of an Industry Association which means an extra layer of checks and high levels of vigilance. This gives extra reassurance to companies, and also job seekers that they are dealing with a reputable company. Companies who are a member of an Industry Association will be working hard to protect their own reputations and will, therefore, have standards in place to prevent job scams and meet legislative standards. This means recruiters will take extra steps to ensure jobs, companies, and information is genuine and correct.
A process managed from start to finish
Requirements for a new position are sometimes required to be very specific and this means, as an employer, it’s invaluable to have a specialist on hand who understands and has access to a database of candidates in your niche area. Sourcing, profiling and screening candidates may not be within the skills of your in-house team. Good recruitment companies use traditional, people-focused recruitment strategy for candidate selection and campaign management, this also allows you to dedicate much less time and internal resources to recruitment and concentrate instead on driving their business forward.
Find the best
A reputable professional agency will be in a position to access a range of quality active and passive candidates, not to mention their wide network of contacts collected over their years in the business. They will also be optimizing their job adverts to rank highly in candidate’s job searches. Candidates that are actively looking for work are much more likely to register with a recruitment agency that has a high reputation through word of mouth. More importantly through their interview skills both over the phone and also face to face they are more likely to find you the right fit not just in skills but also in culture and values.
Setting salary expectations
A reputable recruitment agency will be able to give you accurate benchmarking of roles through their knowledge of the current marketplace and what salaries are in demand for each position not to mention what your competitors are paying. Using salary data and local market knowledge they should be able to advise you on what the correct salary is for each different role that you are recruiting for and offer advice and guidance on rare skill sets when needed.
