Are you getting the best value for money service from your recruitment partner?
Are their terms and conditions fair and reasonable and do they reflect what both parties are going to commit to in the process?
For permanent positions, are you getting candidates of 2nd interview calibre? Do you know their current salary, reasons for leaving their current employer, motivations for joining you, likelihood of a counter offer and where they are in the recruitment process? (other interviews elsewhere etc) If not you might be wasting your valuable time.
What happens if someone leaves shortly after starting? What refund are you due? Do you really want a replacement free of charge? Is the recruiter contacting your staff about leaving at the same time as trying to fill vacancies with you? Are they giving you access to salary surveys/information about difficult to fill roles, trends in your sector?
On a temporary basis, do you know how temporary workers are procured? What references do the agency have? Do they have a working knowledge of the temporary worker over a reasonable period of time? Can they tell you their weaknesses as well as their positives? All temporary workers shouldn’t be the same rate. Can they identify the best temporary workers and present them to you when you need them? Are hourly rates increasing? If so, why? What happens if you want to take someone on permanently?
