Recruiting new team members can be a costly, time-consuming and frustrating exercise for organisations; one that uses up resources but rarely guarantees success. We all appreciate the value of top tier talent – individuals that can drive the business forward towards common goals and boost the bottom line – but finding the right person that also buys into your culture can prove extremely difficult, even for the best HR departments.
In many cases, employers could benefit from external help from a recruitment agency who are able to track down and attract talent as well as negotiating terms, freeing up a lot of time and making the whole process simpler and streamlined.
Now, we can’t talk for all employment agencies, but here are some of the benefits of using International Marine Recruitment.
1. Identify and attract talent
There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to recruitment; it takes time, resources and the knowledge to try out different strategies. Through this omni-strategy approach, we’re able to increase your ability to find and attract higher quality candidates – and more of them.
When using IMR, you have instant access to our extensive database of screened, vetted and referenced candidates that are actively seeking work.
2. Full background checks
Which leads nicely to our second benefit; as a recruitment company, we complete full vetting and background checks on all of our prospective recruits to give our clients peace of mind when choosing IMR for their talent management challenges.
This may seem like common sense (that’s because it is!), but you’d be surprised at how many agencies skip these vital checks in the name of saving time and making money.
3. Focused of serving the client
Most of the work of our team actually happens before any potential compensation has changed hands. If our clients do not hire candidates, then we cannot charge a fee for the work we have done.
Therefore, our focus is on the clients, ensuring our team understand the importance of listening to their needs. The better we listen and understand, the quicker and more likely we are to find a perfect match.
4. Knowledge of the market
IMR is headed by a team of professionals who have worked in and around the marine industry for decades. Each member started by working on yachts and boats themselves, whether that be painting, polishing or GRP repairing. This extensive experience means that, even at the highest level, we know exactly what we’re looking for when it comes to recruitment for our clients.
It’s this experience that has also allowed us to quickly and efficiently build our network which enables us the capacity to take on bigger projects.
5. Extended Reach
Not all the best candidates are actively looking for a new job. Recruitment firms call those candidates ‘passive talent’, and they take a little longer to find.
There is a strong possibility our recruiters know who those people are, how to reach them, and more importantly, know how to incentivise them to make a move – another benefit to working with an agency.
