The Beautiful Benefits of Working With One Recruitment Specialist
You have two options when it comes to choosing a recruiter:
- Work with a large and conventional recruitment agency where the business’ success is determined by targets met.
- Work with the same recruitment consultant throughout the entire hiring process and gain a trusted advisor who knows your business, culture and job requirements inside out.
This article is for those who choose the second option.

Bigger Isn’t Always Better
‘It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog.’ Mark Twain
Large recruitment agencies are all about achieving results fast. Sometimes quality can suffer in pursuit of hitting targets.
They don’t always think about the consequences of trying to place square pegs in round holes. This can result in an unpleasant experience for the client:
- You’re passed from pillar to post, dealing with different people and levels of expertise, during every recruitment stage
- You’re constantly having to remind them who you are and your unique business requirements, as they’re dealing with many client projects
- Problems take longer to fix because decision makers need to be consulted and it’s unclear who’s responsible for what
When you endure these inconveniences, it is frustrating and can make you feel undervalued as a client.
I totally understand why you’d feel like that!
So let’s talk about the alternative.
A Personal Touch
“Personal relationships are the fertile soil from which all advancement, all success, all achievement in real life grows.” Ben Stein
One recruitment consultant for the whole show. How does that sound? Someone who works with you on a one-to-one basis, who takes the time to understand your business, its culture and all your unique hiring needs.
When you call, you always speak to the same person who’s 100% up to speed on your assignment. You never have to deal with another recruiter, repeat yourself or be put on hold while someone looks you up.
All of this builds a bond cemented by trust and outstanding service. Rather than feeling like your recruiter is more interested in bonuses than you, you gain a business ally whose success is your success and will give everything to deliver what is promised.
For me, understanding your business “holistically” is essential and something I really enjoy.
To meet your technical recruitment needs, I must know:
- how your business operates
- your team culture
- your business values
- your business structure …
… and of course YOU, as my client! Warning: I like to probe.
What are your individual goals for the business? How do you like to work and communicate? What are your expectations for the new person? How do you “chill”?
Working relationships mean more to me than doing a job to pay the bills.
I want to make a real difference to you. That means digging deeper to deliver a personalised recruitment experience and always being available when you need me.
A Consistent Connection
Hand over all the responsibility of recruiting to one tenacious specialist.
Having said that, the one thing I won’t do is decide who to offer the job to! I will seamlessly facilitate everything up to this point.
I will take complete ownership for your job vacancy and will always be on top of your assignment, resulting in no delays and ensuring a consistent life-cycle.
When you can relax during the hiring process, you can focus on other things pertinent to your business’ success. You relinquish all recruitment responsibilities without concern so you can do what you do best.
The Right Choice For You
Who you decide to work with to fill your recruitment gap is a big decision. Because the future of your business is in the hands of the staff you employ.
A savvy recruiter and successful business owner is highly motivated, specialist, tenacious and considerate when it comes to understanding your goals and delivering your requirements.
It’s the nature of the beast. Ultimately, it’s my lifeblood to help you grow successfully.
