Is your hiring process long-winded and costly? Have you struggled for months to find the right candidate for your opportunity, only to have them leave because they decided that the role or business wasn’t for them?
These challenges are minimised when you work with a Finance and Accountancy recruiter. The consensus is that working with recruiters comes at a high cost and it would be more efficient to hire directly through advertising on popular job boards. However, the right person rarely applies directly for a role. We’ve had many clients reach out to us after they have advertised directly for several months and had no luck. We’ve also had clients reach out after having recruited someone directly only to have them leave not too long into the role.
The Finance and Accountancy market is still candidate-led, and the right talent is becoming harder to find. This is when working with a specialist Finance and Accountancy recruiter will save you time, allowing you to focus on day-to-day activity and save you money in the long run.
How does working with a finance and accountancy recruiter like Venture save you time and money?
Existing Talent Pool: Specialist Finance and Accountancy recruiters, like Venture, have been building their network for years. We have access to qualified candidates, as well as candidates who aren’t actively applying to roles so won’t be accessible through job boards. We know exactly who to call so you’ll save time by receiving tailored CVs a lot quicker than waiting for applications to come through.
Tapping into the Passive Market: Not only do our recruitment consultants utilise job boards and existing networks to source the best talent for your team, but we’ll also search LinkedIn to find passive candidates who wait for the right opportunity to come to them. According to Randstad, ‘70% of the workforce is made up of passive candidates.’ By working with a Finance and Accountancy recruiter, you’re free to focus on core business activity whilst we do the searching.
Streamlined Process: Our consultants will oversee all the administrative tasks of the process. We’ll write and post tailored job ads, review CVs, book interviews, and ensure all candidates are compliant. As a Recruitment Consultancy that takes pride in the finer details, we will also conduct detailed initial interviews. We’ll discuss the candidate’s skills and experience, as well as your business, to ensure they are the right fit for your team and the opportunity. This will ensure you can focus on your own role and not waste time interviewing candidates who aren’t right.
Reduced Chance of Bad Hires: We will schedule a meeting with every client we partner with to discuss the ideal candidate they’re looking for. We'll give you an up-to-date analysis of the market and how it compares to the role on offer. This means you’ll know exactly what your job needs to look like to attract the best talent for your team and avoid engaging with candidates who aren’t suitable.
Reduced Training Costs: Our recruitment consultants will find you the best-suited talent for your team who will have a sound knowledge of the skills and experience you need (outlined in your initial meeting.) Therefore, they’ll require less training, saving you time and money.
It’s no secret that working with a Finance and Accountancy recruiter will cost you money. However, their market insight and access to top-notch talent that won’t be applying to your job ads is unrivaled. By working with a recruiter, you’re able to save time by allowing them to find the right candidates whilst you continue to focus on your role rather than sifting through hundreds of irrelevant job applications.
At Venture, we take pride in being an understanding business. We understand that time and money are valuable. We get to know our clients and candidate needs on a deeper level so that we only introduce the right talent to the right business.
