recruitment process made easy with randstad

As a recruitment specialist, it’s our job to select only the best candidates for your business. We’ve come up with an effective yet easy-to-implement recruitment process that works for all types of companies. Read on below to discover our unique recruitment process and find out why Randstad, an external recruitment specialist, is the best option to find new talents.

why work with a recruitment specialist?

Under normal circumstances, it can take weeks or even months for the average person to find work in India—or any part of the world, for that matter. In the midst of the COVID-19 crisis, however, it can seem almost impossible.

There’s never been a better time to get an expert in your corner. Partnering with a specialist recruitment agency strengthens the chances of a candidate landing his or her dream role and offers companies more opportunities to find the best talent.

Here’s why you should use a recruitment specialist as a company or a job seeker:

specialist recruitment consultants know your industry like the back of their hand

A recruitment specialist's role is to understand industry lingos, how a particular job works, and where specific skills would be most suited in potential employment. Since recruitment specialists are so well versed in all of the technical and personal requirements of industry-specific roles, they will be able to give an accurate assessment of a candidate’s experience and skills and provide advice on how to remedy any knowledge gaps.

specialist recruitment agencies actively cultivate strong (and often exclusive) relationships with industry-leading businesses

For you as a job seeker, this means that your specialist recruitment consultant will know of jobs that may not have been advertised and will be able to ‘float’ your resume to key organizations you want to work with. As a result, you may be offered a role that actually didn’t exist.

specialist recruitment agencies reduce the number of times referees are contacted

Partnering with a recruitment specialist means that instead of the individual companies all contacting referees (which can become time-consuming), a specialist recruiter will simply call just once and provide the same referral details to employers.

recruitment specialists can offer you salary advice based on benchmarking within the industry

A specialist recruitment consultant will have in-depth knowledge of the type of salary candidates can expect from new roles. They can also give advice on what you need to secure the right wage, the best contract, and the appropriate work arrangements through negotiations.

recruitment specialists are in constant contact with employers within an industry

An excellent specialist recruitment consultant is proactive and will regularly find out well in advance about available roles before they are advertised on traditional job boards. This means that job seekers will get first dibs on opening jobs, and companies will get to interview the fresh candidates looking for the position they’re advertising.

In the end, there are only benefits to having an expert on your side in the job hunt and recruitment process — especially now as the working world is still reeling from the impact of COVID-19.

why choose randstad as your recruitment specialist?

Every candidate is pre-screened by Randstad CPE using a systematic and unique process. On top of that, we also open our recruitment process to all sorts of candidates and businesses to promote a diverse community. Here’s how we do it:

conducting a unique recruitment process

  1. A structured interview with a sector-specialist consultant who will assess the overall quality of the candidate, their employment history, and personal/career motivations.
  2. A Randstad CPE formatted CV is written for each candidate to enable easy comparison during the client review process. References are provided by previous line managers at this stage.
  3. A briefing process to ensure a detailed understanding of the role, the company, career progression, professional development, and any other information that will ensure a perfect match between what the candidate wants and what you can offer.

Essentially it is our job to ensure that once a candidate walks through your door for their first interview, you’re able to explore specific areas of interest rather than start at the very beginning of the selection process. At the end of each recruitment process, we always aim to provide you with 2 to 3 quality CVs for each position.

offering a variety of additional recruitment solutions

Aside from the actual recruitment process, we also offer a range of additional recruitment solutions, such as:

  • Retained Assignments - typically suited to more senior or hard to fill roles
  • Project staffing - for major projects requiring high volumes of site-based personnel
  • Advertising packages - frequently used as a supporting method in a campaign.

promoting a diverse hiring process

We make sure that our recruitment process can go beyond borders. We also encourage employees and companies to make their hiring process more accessible to everyone. Here are some examples of how we promote diversity:

Onboarding process for freelancers

Screening for freelance positions is similar to that of permanent, except interviews are generally conducted by phone due to the fast turnaround. References are especially important in this process given the task-orientated nature of contract requirements.

On average, we can have up to two thousand freelance candidates (from labourers to site managers) on-site at any one time. We have a resource database of over 200,000 pre-vetted and approved potential candidates.

disability-friendly recruitment process

Over the last few months, there has been a lot of talk about diversity and inclusion, especially in the world of work. With much of the focus on race and gender issues, the personal, professional, and economic situations of people living with disabilities are sometimes overlooked.

As such, we encourage companies to be more inclusive in hiring candidates—whether it’s an in-house recruitment process or with the help of Randstad. Companies can offer a more inclusive hiring process by:

  • having an accessible career site
  • updating the existing hiring requirements
  • eliminating personality and IQ tests
  • offering phone and video interview options
  • practicing understanding
