What is Outsourcing Recruitment?
Outsourcing recruitment (or RPO) involves moving some or all of your recruitment process to an external partner. Emerald Starfish offers these services to the SME market, we are your own recruitment department. If you have between 5 - 200 members of staff but no internal recruitment function we can provide this for you when you need it. This means that you have the expertise of an experienced recruiter without having to pay agency fees. By outsourcing your recruitment you save the time that recruitment can take up as well as saving money - you pay a fixed fee per project.
What are the Benefits of Outsourcing?
There are many benefits of outsourcing recruitment. These include:
Reducing the costs of your recruitment. Costs are fixed at the start and therefore save you hefty agency fees. Our costs start at less than £2,500 and typically save you over half your current recruitment costs.
Offering you flexibility. You can pick us up and use us when you need us, rather than having an extra head in the business.
Reduced time-to-hire. Poorly managed recruitment projects can mean that the time it takes to hire can be long, candidates have a poor experience and you may lose them in a lengthy process by them taking other roles. Outsourced recruitment reduces the time-to-hire by properly managing the processes.
Better candidate quality. An RPO provider can spend longer with candidates and create better assessment processes to get better quality candidates infront of the hiring managers. We ensure that company and culture fit which is so important with smaller organisation is also met.
Should you outsource your recruitment activities?
If you feel that standard recruitment agencies are not giving you the best service, and that your recruitment is costing a lot of money with not much value added then it is worth looking at outsourcing your recruitment processes. It will mean that your time is spent only with good candidates and that your recruitment costs will decrease but the value you get from your recruitment provider will increase. Why not find out more?
