What to look for when partnering with a recruiter?

When partnering with a Recruiter, what are the key things you should be looking for to make sure you can make the most out of the relationship and the outcomes?

  1. A consultant should know your business inside and out. Have they taken the time to get to know you, your team and your business? How can they represent your business if they don't know anything about it?
  2. Are they just advertising your role on job boards, or are they using their own database, searching job boards, headhunting via LinkedIn? How do they source?
  3. Do they provide regular updates and analytics? This could include lists of who they have contacted and where they are up to with each candidate.
  4. Is your relationship a "partnership" or a means to an end? There should be transparency from both sides, a relationship built on trust and honesty.
  5. Are they a true specialist in recruting for your industry and role type? You wouldn't hire a carpenter to fit your boiler...
  6. Are they telling you what you want to hear? If they aren't challenging you, they won't challenge your candidates.
