Recruiting for your own recruitment agency

When recruiting staff for other companies, make sure you don’t forget yourselves! To grow your recruitment or staffing agency, you will need to recruit the right team members to fill vacancies. Getting your employer branding right is key.

This article aims to provide you with actionable tips on recruiting staff for your agency.

Tip #1: Strengthen your employer branding

A company’s reputation matters more than ever. Job seekers want to know about an organisation’s company culture before they even apply for a position. 86% of employees would not apply to or continue to work for a company with a poor reputation among former employees or the general public. 

Your employer brand is your reputation and your employees’ perception of you as an employer. To retract and retain top talent, you must have a positive reputation. 

How can you strengthen your employer brand?

  • Conduct an employer brand audit
  • Create a robust onboarding process
  • Tell your company story through content

 

Tip #2: Use your website to attract staff

Your website is essentially your online business card. It provides information to your clients about what you do, who you serve, and how you can help them.

But it can also be a place to recruit new talent to your agency.

By having a web page dedicated to promoting roles at your agency for those interested in recruitment, you can transform your clients browsing your site into your new employees!
