All you need to know about Job Recruiters
Recruitment agencies are a conventional way for businesses to outsource the process of searching for temporary employees, or filtering of applicants for a full-time position down to a more manageable size. 

Whether you require a new staff member or a job, it could feel as though you speak to only one person in that company and they will handle the complete process of matching the vacancy with workers.  In reality, recruitment is more about teamwork, both within the recruiting agency and with clients with vacant openings and prospective candidates looking for openings. 

Here we explore at how a standard recruitment agency actually works and how a opening is filled-up by a prospective recruiter.

Professional HR Practices of Recruitment Agencies:

London based PA Recruitment agency – Candcsearch told us that in general, a recruiting agency that is bigger than just a few people would split-off their team into two different roles.  The 'Consultants' would speak to the recruiting agency clients and gather their needs.  The 'Resourcers' would then source the appropriate candidates for their openings the consultant and client have pre-defined.

This division of roles enables each of the members of staff to concentrate on their various jobs a recruiting agency should be good at.  The consultant could build-up a cordial relationship with their client and grows with them to understand their business needs, the issues they face, and their working environment they require part-time contractors and full time employees to fit within.

A “resource” has to be very good at communicating with prospective candidates searching for an opening, assessing which team they will work well with, how reliable are they, what skills they possess and how someone's skills could change over a period of time.  As they make progress through their professional life, a candidate's skills and experience would change and their expectations and needs might change as well.

A young candidate might be relatively inexperienced, but be willing to commute very long distances for a role which would accept them or stay in a cheap accommodation near her workplace for a part-time contractual employment. 

Conversely, the same person a few years later might have lot more experience, but a family as well and would not be volunteering to spend time away from their home.  However, their expertise might mean a client would accept them telecommuting if the right balance between that and a physical presence in office is negotiated and balanced.

Within several recruiting agencies, career progression also involves launching as a resourcer and growing-on to becoming a HR Consultant after few years of experience and on the job training, but this is not always the case, few people progress as very successful, sought after HR Resourcers for the rest of their career.

An Opening Springs Action on the Recruiting Agencies Veins:

When a client of the recruiting agency has an opening, be it short-term or full-time they would discuss their needs with a HR Consultant from the recruiting agency.  The Consultant and HR Resourcer then evaluate this within the recruiting agency and would check-out their internal database of registered job seeking candidates to check if it contains someone suitable for the opening and refer them.
