Recruitment agencies, also known as recruitment consultancies or employment agencies, work on businesses’ behalf to find the right candidates when they are seeking to fill a job within their company or increase headcount. Additionally, some agencies may be able to supply temporary or contract workers, who are employed and managed by the agency, but work onsite for a business.

Recruitment agencies act as intermediaries between employers and job seekers, sourcing talent, screening candidates, and matching them to appropriate roles based on the employers’ requirements.

Additionally, they work on behalf of candidates to find suitable positions in the right companies, offering guidance and support throughout the job search process. Recruitment agencies offer valuable expertise in navigating the hiring process, saving time and resources for both employers and candidates.
