3 Reasons Why Fast Recruitment Is Essential


Recruitment agencies understand how busy HR managers are. They want to help you by finding your perfect candidate. Speed of response is key in order to beat the competition and hire the top candidate they are offering you. We see this every day, especially in the Medical Sector, where HR & recruitment teams need to liaise with doctors and consultants for opinions on potential candidates. We all understand how busy they are. All of this means that acting fast and getting a swift response to a recruitment agency can be difficult.

Many people do not realise the heavy workload that the HR department carries. Hiring staff can be a tedious and lengthy process. Especially for a company that requires only the most qualified candidates for specific roles.

Here are 3 reasons from us on why a quick response is important;

  • The speed of response, from when a recruiter offers a candidate to the HR or hiring manager is so important. If you feel this could be the right candidate, you should respond to the recruiter as soon as you can, to set up an interview. This helps to eliminate the competition. One particular candidate could be sought after by a number of recruiters for numerous organisations. That’s why time is important, being a day late to respond could cost you the best person for the job.
  • Hot candidates could be dealing with many recruiters or organisations. Sending them an email or having a quick phone call to say that they have been shortlisted for the role could secure them before anyone else, rather than leaving it a few days to get back to them.  Your interest and commitment to them will lead to their commitment in your role over the competition.
  • It can improve your ratios for interview to hire. It can’t do any harm to have more than a few suitable candidates as the chances of you filling the role will increase. Limiting yourself due to time constraints or waiting to hear back from other team members or hiring managers can greatly affect the recruitment process.

If you want the perfect candidate, meet them halfway by getting back to your recruiter on time. Remember, your recruiter is an extension of your team.

Changing people’s lives —few things in life have a bigger impact on a person than landing/missing out on a great job. This will make any recruiter excited to join a person on this journey. Recruiters can certainly help improve a person’s chances of finding their hidden skills. Recruiters do this by answering questions and calming people down so that they feel comfortable and prepared during the rest of the recruiting process. Recruiters coach candidates and help them to better themselves, so that they will have a better chance of landing a job next time round.

Electrifying competition — if you are naturally competitive, recruiting is for you. As a recruiter you will realize that filling each job is a head-to-head competition. It’s energizing. Every day you compete against your competitors. Most recruiters also find that discovering their own hidden talent is also exhilarating. Successfully convincing top prospects who have multiple choices to pick your firm’s job is an award winning feeling.
