10 Jul Why and When Should Clients Engage with a Recruiting Firm?
Whether you are hiring for a mid-level executive for a pharmacology company or you are hiring talent at the senior-level in a biotech firm, it can be difficult to find the right fit for your company. You have to think about their skill set, their experience level, and their personality. You also have to think about how they will complement the other members on your team. Partnering with a recruiting firm is one of the best ways to find high-performing talent for your team. Below are several reasons why engaging with a recruiting can benefit your hiring practices.
Hiring Talent: Diversify Your Team
One reason to engage with a recruiting firm is if you want to diversify your talent. Rather than promoting from within, it is often in the company’s best interest to hire new talent to fill leadership roles. You might need a set of skills that no one on your team has. Maybe you are looking for someone who can approach the job with a fresh pair of eyes.
Find the Best Talent
Another reason to work with a recruiting firm is because you want the best talent working for you. Recruiters are experts in their niche. As experts in the talent market, they know all of the top players in the biotech and rare disease pharmacology fields, and they know how to appeal to these players. They have the experience and knowledge to easily identify the wrong fit. This means that they can filter the search pool efficiently and you do not have to waste time waiting to find the perfect candidate.
Hire Key Positions
Recruiting firms are especially useful when trying to hire for key positions. When hiring senior level executives, you want someone who can evaluate the talent pool and identify candidates who best fit with the company’s values and overall objectives. Key positions are often the most difficult ones to find talent for. There are often very few candidates that actually have the set of skills that are needed to perform the job well. The more specialized the position is, the harder it becomes. Job advertisements and referrals often are not sufficient strategies to hire for positions that require specialized knowledge. This is where a recruiting firm truly is valuable. They can research the market for talent and find candidates who would not turn up with traditional recruitment strategies. They also target candidates who already have jobs, which are usually the hardest candidates to appeal to.
Recruiting firms use strategies that many hiring managers are not able to or do not feel comfortable using. However, these strategies are often the most effective. Recruiting firms are fearless about cold calling, for example. Cold calling can lead to issues for corporations calling their own competition. But this issue is eliminated when done through a third party. A final reason to work with recruiting firm is that they maintain confidentiality and discretion throughout the entire recruitment process.
