If you are a business owner and looking to employer extra staff, then you may consider using a recruitment agency.
There are a few different types of recruitment agencies, some specialise in finding people permanent job roles whereas others specialise in finding temporary work on a regular basis. You may also find a recruitment agency that offers both.
As an employer you may chose a recruitment company based on the fees they charge, or you may go off recommendations or review.
If you are an individual looking to use a recruitment company to find you work, you may decide which recruitment agency to use depending on what type of work you are looking for. If you are in desperate need of a job and do not mind what you are doing as long as you have an income the temporary work may be the answer as they can find you work quickly, but it is also worthwhile registering with ones that search for more permanent positions in the meantime.
The way recruitment agencies make their money can vary, often agencies that are recruiting staff on a permanent basis charge the employer their fees whereas most temporary work agencies take a percentage of employee’s salary to cover the costs.
