Are you wasting time by doing any of these hiring activities you could outsource?

As a small business owner – there are only so many tasks you can juggle at once. 

Recruiting can be a huge task, especially if you are hiring for the first time, taking on a large number of employees or feel you’re not confident in the process of recruiting new people.

So when you’re starting to think about outsourcing some key activities that are taking up a lot of your time, certain recruitment tasks might be the best option for you. 

Here are five hiring activities that you can outsource to a recruitment agency that would save you a lot of time…

Write your job ads

Writing a job ad can be lengthy work – especially if you aren’t used to it. Our team of experts have written millions of job ads so know exactly what to include and what will stand out against other competitors. 

All you have to do is give us a rough idea of what you’re looking for and we’ll make it our priority to write the ad in a way that will attract your next star employee!

Posting on job board sites

When a company has a job ad ready to be listed, they will usually post it on every job board site they can think of to get the highest chance of the right person applying. But the reality is that doing that takes lots of time, energy and resources which could be focused on more important tasks and it doesn’t always get the best results.

We will go the extra mile to make sure your job ad is seen by the right people by using our network on LinkedIn, our website and using the correct job board sites.

Sifting through CVs

After you’ve written your job ad and posted it on the site, the hard bit isn’t done yet. You might get candidates applying who are not qualified or just do not suit the role. Since we have access to a fantastic network of candidates, you are more likely to get the right people applying. 

We can also sort through applications and pick out deserving candidates to save you wasting time on CVs that just aren’t worth it.

Conducting initial interviews

Let’s be honest – interviews take time to arrange and conduct and they can be nerve-wracking – even for the interviewer. This becomes even harder if you’re working around a busy schedule with minimal free time. 

If you choose to outsource initial interviews to a recruitment agency, it can save you a lot of time as you won’t have to arrange or conduct the interview, but you will still be able to review their answers and how it went in your own time after the meeting. This is a great option if you plan to have multiple interviews in the recruitment process, as you will only have to meet with your final candidates to make a well-informed decision. 

Gathering references

Especially if you have a lot of candidates, gathering references can be a lengthy process as people might not always answer the first time you contact them. It can be a huge waste of your valuable time to chase people for references that you need quickly in order to continue the recruitment process. 

So why would you waste your time doing it when you could outsource it to a recruitment agency? 


The best part about hiring a recruitment agency to outsource these activities to is you have a better chance of finding quality employees that will stay with your company for a longer time.

We can help you hire people who will be a good fit for your company and take tasks like this off of your hands. We will work with you closely to identify the types of people you need in your team and use our head-hunting skills to seek them out. Get in touch today.
