Start-ups and mid-size recruitment agency owners are finding it more challenging to fill specialist and hard to fill roles, because of the time it takes to resources high quality short lists and get them to the client quickly, before a competitor does.
Hard to fill roles are called ‘Hard to fill’ for a reason. It’s because they take a lot more time and effort to search and discover the right candidates, which increases your time and costs to work these roles. In many cases recruiters fail to dedicate the time required to fill these roles and revenues are lost.
Can you remember the last time you registered a role which took you a long to sift and sort from potential candidates, speaking to a high volume of candidates just to arrive at a short list, and then be too late to fill the role?
