A recruitment agency is a company or external firm that helps businesses find and recruit top employees. They typically do this by advertising job openings on behalf of their clients, screening candidates, shortlisting top talent, and conducting interviews. Some agencies also offer other services, such as background checks and salary negotiation assistance.Recruitment agencies are crucially helpful for companies that don't have the time or resources to create a faster and more efficient hiring process. However, choosing an agency that is a good fit for your business needs is important. When inviting agencies to support you in the hiring process, be sure to ask about their experience, success rates, and fees.
