Everything you need to know about recruiting outsourcing

If you’re looking for talent, it’s normal to want a winning profile that makes a difference. Finding this type of profile is complicated, since you are usually working in other companies, the few that are free stay little time looking for employment and applying to offers. So how will you find this talent?

A very good option is to outsource your selection processes, in today’s post we explain the most important points you should know to outsource recruitment successfully.

When do you want to outsource?

It is essential to identify in time the symptoms that indicate that the time has come to outsource your selection processes.

The most relevant symptoms are the difficulty of filling vacancies quickly, that is, not filling in time one or several positions and, above all, the growing difficulty of finding qualified candidates for highly specialized and/or demanded positions (very frequent in IT profiles).

How to find the ideal candidate?

The main advantage of having specialized Headhunters is that you will have access to passive candidates (not actively looking for work) and active candidates. Thanks to the specialization of Recruiters you will have access to profiles of higher quality and that fit perfectly with the values and culture of your company. Even if it doesn’t seem like it, it makes perfect sense. If you think about it, when you post a job offer and there are candidates who apply, these same candidates know each other well and evaluate whether they fit the offer. Instead, when a Recruiter is looking for candidates, he first reads the job description and then thinks among his acquaintances who fits the position. In other words, it goes the other way than the candidate. First he understands the position and then he thinks who fits.

  • Salary negotiation: once the candidate has been chosen, you must negotiate with him the economic conditions of his contract. At this stage it is very useful to have the advice of your Headhunter.
