Using Recruitment Agencies

How to Use a Recruitment Agency Effectively

At Intec our Consultants manage permanent, contract and temporary recruitment and we would like to offer our expert advice on the benefits and best practise when using a recruitment agency.

Tips when using a Recruitment Agency

To get the best from a recruitment agency you should:

  • Have a conversation with someone - don't wait for people to contact you, contact us and get all the information you need

  • Provide your consultant with a good quality CV

  • Provide your consultant with your full contact details including email address and mobile number

  • Keep in touch with us and regularly update your details such as contact details, availability, role criteria

  • Make yourself stand out and be enthusiastic

  • Remain professional and polite and treat an agency as if they were the employer

  • Be pro-active with job applications - apply online but follow up shortly afterwards with a phone call to re-iterate your keenness and get further information about your application

Permanent Recruitment

We have a number of permanent vacancies registered with our organisation at any given time. These are vacancies that are normally difficult for companies to recruit for so they ask our experienced team for our assistance.

We will allocate a consultant to work on your behalf. They will provide you with advice and honest analysis of your career options, giving clear and precise advice on how we can help.

Communication is critical throughout the process. Important criteria, such as offers of employment, benefit packages, travelling times and relocation packages need to be addressed quickly and thoroughly with the minimum of disruption. We will do our best to make sure everything runs smoothly by ensuring everyone is kept informed every step of the way.

Our success comes from matching the right candidate with the right company and role.

Contract / Temporary Recruitment​

Companies often use recruitment agencies for hiring contractors or temporary staff for specific projects as it can help to reduce their costs and risks. At Intec we deal with contract positions all the time, providing expert advice to our clients and candidates.

Our service for contractors, interim and temporary workers is very much based upon developing long-term relationships and our consultants play a vital role in this process. We aim to provide the best service by ensuring that you have a regular, reliable point of contact. Knowing your abilities and requirements enables us to make sure that our relationship with you is as positive and productive as possible.

We work with both PAYE and Limited Company contractors and we acknowledge that our contract recruitment service is measured by our ability to fill a vacancy quickly and with the right candidate. We therefore take time to ensure that you are happy with the information passed on to you and that the jobs offered meet with your personal expectations. We strongly believe in the importance of building good working relationships and developing trust. If you want help or advice on market trends or pay rates, or anything else that's important to you, all you have to do is ask.
