Comparison sites for agencies imminent

Comparison sites for recruitment agencies are on their way, recruiters have heard.

Don Leslie, co-director at BLT Recruitment, told Recruiter’s 4th Annual Forum in London last week that the recruitment industry was set to follow the example of the travel and leisure industry where comparison sites such as Trip Advisor were widely used by customers and potential customers.

Comparison websites such as Contractor Supermarket are already used by contractors to compare umbrella companies. Brands are being defined by the voices of  strangers,” said Leslie.

And this would soon be the case for recruitment agencies, he predicted. “A bought ledger clerk will be able to see what other people are saying about your agency. It’s going to be happening in recruitment and very shortly.”

Recruiters urged to ‘earn their fee’

Recruiters must do more to earn their fee, says BT’s head of recruitment, Martin Thomas.

Thomas told Recruiter: “Agencies that do more to screen and assess out the average candidates add the most value – giving us fewer but better candidates. This means understanding niche areas of the market and building up a pipeline of candidates for when we need them, not using the ‘vanilla’ recruitment channels – we can access them ourselves in-house. Go for the harder candidate to really earn your fee.”
