4 Ways Agency Recruitment Boosts Your Bottom Line

Now, more than ever, Sussex-based businesses are being asked to reign in costs across all departments – recruitment included. While it can certainly be restrictive as an HR Manager to feel curtailed in pursuit of talent sourcing, it can help to know which aspects of your recruitment pipeline are costing you money, versus those which are saving you money.
Here at Classic Consulting, we work as business partners to HR Teams, Senior Leadership and Hiring Managers alike. Our clients have varying requirements, budgets and timeframes in which to work, and we’re proud to offer fully bespoke consultancy to each and every business.

The pride we take in our client relationships means we’re well-versed in providing recruitment solutions that ‘speak the language of business’: we hold ourselves accountable to a fast and accurate service to secure that all-important return on your investment.
Here are four ways working with Classic Consulting can boost your bottom line:
  • Detailed market knowledge & candidate reach: The Sussex jobs market is poised for massive growth, yet the Employment and Skills Plan 2016 to 2020 identifies that up to 25% of companies are experiencing skills shortages. Our strategy is based around talent pipelines and identifying both active and passive candidates with the skills the region requires the most. As such, many of our candiates are off the radar of in-house recruiting teams, meaning that once we beign working with you, we can source candidates faster, and with greater accuracy than you could manage alone, saving you valuable time and money.
  • 'Candidates' versus 'Applicants': Our intrinsic value lies in making the client’s job easier. We take time to understand your exact needs and requirements, so that we may source the perfect candidates for your role. Our ability to identify talent with just the right combination of experience, soft-skills, cultural fit and attitude has led us to an amazing interview-to-placement ratio of 2:1.
  • Detailed Management Reporting: We provide you with reports breaking down your recruitment campaign into figures such as time-to-hire, cost-per-hire, interview-to-placement ratios, etc. It's as important to us as it is to you that we are able to prove our worth, and this attention to detail saves you time as well as money.
  • Guaranteed Fee Refund: If the worst should happen and a candidate placement doesn't work out, you are guaranteed a refund within 13 weeks of their start date. Unlike in-house recruitment where the HR costs of a bad hire cannot be recovered, agency recruitment provides that added assurance and keeps your budgets balanced.
