Recent research indicates that in-house legal recruiters also depend on exterior legal recruitment agencies and it remains a fact that both the legal companies and lawyers need these agencies. Most firms see these agencies as advisers, but they do much more than just advise companies and lawyers.
Recruiters have their fingers on the pulse of the Canadian job market and give your hiring team insight into what is happening in the business and how to be a major player in it. They are aware of the available talent at any given moment as well as the best firms and are always ready to capitalize on that information for their clients. They are also aware of the salary rates, the current hiring complexities, and the available skill sets in their pool of law talent at any given moment. Recruiting agencies also provide an extended reach, beyond what an individual applicant or company operating on their own, are capable of. Agencies have wide networks- each candidate, collaborator or client has the potential to influence their networks in order to assist in connecting the companies with the suitable applicant. An experienced legal recruitment agency like The Heller Group can help prepare you for your job search. That’s an invaluable service that will take you far in your career.
Using legal recruitment agencies help the recruiting company attract the right candidates but not be overwhelmed with applications. A lot of job applicants may not be the best matches for the advertised roles hence a lot of time is used in matching, assessing, communicating and filtering them out. Using legal recruitment services avoids that hassle. Sometimes, companies may not be in a position to run a meticulous skill matching process. Using an agency ensures that only qualified candidates are presented to the recruiting company. It ensures that the job seekers are pre-selected to suit the entire criterion of the job opening.
Recruiting agencies also help give potential candidates an insight in to the business. These agencies often spend a lot of time getting to know the managers and the profiles of the best companies in the business. This is a reach that any single candidate or firm cannot hope to have on their own. Recruitment agencies give both individuals and companies with an unbeatable advantage in this respect.
There is often only a limited time available for doing a thorough search of both applicants and companies. Using a recruitment agency will save a lot of time and resources, either for the personal applicant or for an entire company.
