There is no need to continue harping on the dire situation we all find ourselves in. After all, we are all dealing with tough times. People are losing their jobs and businesses are failing.
That being said, there are still companies out there that need to recruit talent. While it may be tempting to attempt to go at it alone when your budget is limited, it wouldn’t be wise to do so. Engaging with a specialist like ours can put you at a great advantage over the competition. While it may be tempting to “save money” by going at it alone, there are many reasons you shouldn’t act on it. If you are looking for the best marketing recruitment services then look no further than Stopgap.
There Are More Applicants Than Ever Before
For one, there are more applicants that you will need to sort through than ever before. After all, seemingly everyone is looking for a job at the same time. A single restaurant in Manchester just received a whopping 960 applications for a single role with over 50 people looking to fill each vacancy in various areas of the UK. There is data pointing that the number of applicants to roles sits as high as it’s ever been at 103-1 in a few areas.
It can be an incredulous task to attempt to sort through this unprecedented level of applications on your own. Not only do you need to sort through the most relevant candidates, but you need to respond to each one and interview them accordingly. A lot of smaller companies won’t have the experience to effectively review applications and resumes as they should.
Quality Over Quantity
While you may be getting unprecedented levels of applications, that doesn’t make it easier to find the right one. Finding the right candidate for your specialist roles in marketing can be both time-consuming and increasingly difficult. While you may assume that getting 50 applicants means you’ll find the right one, that’s not at all what it means. As professional recruiters, we know how many people apply for roles that they have no demonstrated ability to fill.
Experience With The Recruitment Process
If you are looking to recruit new prospects and you are going to be filling key roles in your company, you need to be able to effectively handle the capacity of applications and applicants you are going to receive. You will need to have a good plan of action that you will use to respond to the applicants and address them. You want everyone to have a good experience with the application process including those who don’t get the job. The best way to do this is by having a good and professional advertisement that attracts the right candidate. You want to be spending your advertising budget properly to ensure you are targeting the right candidate for the role. This means investing in the right job boards and demonstrating good and clear copywriting for the job advertisement.
