Finding good quality staff with the right skill sets and experience levels is a crucial requirement when growing a business and meeting the demands of increasing workloads. Being more attractive to candidates above other organisations is a key part of achieving this requirement and this includes culture, working environment, career progression and training opportunities.

There is a mixed bag of recruitment agencies out there with the best ones providing a high quality service by putting forward appropriate candidates based on their clients brief rather than adopting a 'scatter gun' approach.

Recruitment is a time consuming and costly business with many potential failure points along the way. Being selective about the agencies you use and the way you select and interview candidates plays a key part in reducing the workload associated with recruitment.
