How are procurement consultancy services different from traditional employment agencies?
Procurement consultancy services are experts at sourcing, screening, and placing talent with organizations. Unlike an employment service, they only work with people who are currently employed and looking to find new opportunities. This way, you know that the candidates they present are interested in talking to you because they want a new challenge or better benefits package.
I’ve also discovered that, unlike traditional job agencies, procurement consultancy services specialize in specific job categories so they can quickly identify candidates who have the skills you need. Plus, if you’re looking for passive candidates to join your company instead of actively recruiting them, a recruiter will be able to help find those people on behalf of your company.
If you do hire someone through a recruitment agency, it’s important to ensure that there’s room in the budget to train and mentor this person so they feel successful during their first few months on the job. The best procurement consultancy services are more likely to find you a better candidate than traditional employment agencies.
