Why you need a recruiter right now

As we deal with Covid 19 we are aware that unfortunately, there are a large number of unemployed individuals. New circumstances however, provide new opportunities for employers.

Here at Alexander Hancock we are receiving up to 200 applications for every job we advertise, each from talented individuals who have been affected by this extraordinary climate. But there are still roles to be filled and companies looking to recruit and it is tempting to take on this task yourself, believing that this is the most cost efficient solution. However the reality for most employers is that there simply aren’t the resources nor time that can be diverted to the recruitment process, limiting their ability to take full advantage of the opportunities presented by this unusual job market.

In this precarious global environment, there has never been a more pressing time for companies to adapt, to find new and more innovative ways of working, and to look to the future of their firms. The UK is filled with talented, capable people with a variety of experiences that can contribute to your business.

As airline after airline went bankrupt, with thousands left out of work, the NHS employed these workers, recognising that their skills could be well utilised in the establishment of temporary hospitals across the country. It is this kind of innovate redirection of skills that recruiters are uniquely placed to tap into. With a holistic view of the job market, and over fifteen years’ experience, the consultants at Alexander Hancock are uniquely placed to identify the skills of a wide talent pool to fit your business.

Whilst many companies are reluctant to pay the fees associated with recruitment agencies, in reality, we are positioned to save you money both in the long and short terms. Recruitment processes are stressful and long in normal circumstances. Between the processing and verification of CVs, the organisation of interviews, the procurement of references, and the identification of genuinely qualified candidates, managers can find themselves diverting days to find the right candidate for just one role, often only to be met by further complications with their new employee.

In the current climate, the training and assimilation of new employees has also never been a more arduous task with the obvious obstacles of closed offices and buffering WiFi signals on Zoom calls. It has therefore never been more important to get it right first time. By taking full advantage of our services, we will save you the time and money it takes to train and retrain new recruits.

With our assistance, managers are left to get on with the jobs they are employed to do, leaving the rest to us. We are experts at identifying talent, skills, and suitability, processing hundreds of applicants to find the few that are well-matched to your needs. The value of our recruitment cannot be quantified with a single hire. It is our years of experience and our place within the industry that allows us to create the conditions for magic to strike.

We have a vast network of candidates, the experience of salary benchmarking, a deep understanding of companies, products, markets, and professions, and the stamina to doggedly pursue the right talent for you.

At times like these, we are the two caplets of paracetamol when you have the headache of recruiting; we immediately deal with all the pain, but you have to have us in your medicine cabinet in the first place! You can try and work through the pain, but soon realise that if you had taken those tablets in the first place, you could have saved yourself a lot of unnecessary angst!

Quite unlike paracetamol, we can guarantee our work and there is no limit to the number of times you can use us. In the event of any problems we can provide you with a full refund, with more excellent candidates ready to go with immediate effect.
