Profile for Rob Scott, Managing Director of Aaron Wallis Sales Recruitment


With around 20,000 recruitment agencies in the UK to choose from it can be a daunting task to decide where to start selecting whom to use.   Here are our Top Ten Tips to select a recruitment agency. 



Aaron Wallis Sales Recruitment are a Leading UK Sales Recruiter


1) How important is it for you to find the right candidate for your role? So therefore, should you choose a generalist recruitment agency or a specific recruitment agency like Aaron Wallis, a sales specific recruitment agency? 

2) How Did You Discover Them?  When you're looking for the right recruiter obviously you're going to be searching around yourself, whether that's on Google, YouTube, Facebook, whatever. How you find them is very likely how the target candidate is going to find them. So if you think your target candidate is going to be using Google to search then you're probably going to find your ideal recruiter also high up in the Google search rankings. If you feel your target candidate is going to be using a generalist website search for the kind of role that you're looking to recruit for on the generalist website and see what agencies come up top of their list.

3) Where is the company located? If you're looking for an internal based person you might want to choose a recruiter that's in that local area.

4) What's the process that they follow? Most recruiters will detail the methodology that they work towards. Most of these are approved by the large recruitment regulatory bodies in the UK, APSCo, REC, and the IOR. Do they follow those processes? Do they have their badge for compliance? Do they have their badge for performing to best practises?

5) What are the Costs?  A good recruiter has the terms of business and costs available on their website. So have a look for comparison. It may not necessarily be the cheapest recruiter that's the right recruits for you. Have a look at what the service level is that's included within that fee and also look at the terms for things like payment terms and the rebate if the candidate doesn't work out.

6) How Flexible are They?  Also when researching you may have to work to certain diversity statistics. For instance, how flexible is the recruiter to change their process so it works with your own process in your business?

7) What's the Background of the Recruiter?  In terms of the recruiter that you'll be dealing with, have a look at About Us page or the Meet The Team type pages. Who's the recruiter that's going to be recruiting for you? What's their background? What's their qualifications? Do they have the niche skills required to source the right people for your business?

8) What's their Story?  Ultimately after you've done an initial web based research give them a call. Have a look at their Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter profiles. Are they talking about your industry, your business? After you've picked the phone up to them the 'proof is in the pudding'. Do you relate to them? Do they understand your business? Can they provide proven history of recruiting for companies like yours? And do they have access to the talent that you require?

9) Would You Benefit More From Internal or External Recruitment? Read our guide on making the decision between internal and external recruitment 

10) What's your gut feeling? When you visit their website, do they come across as friendly? Knowledgeable? If so, then they are the recruiter for you!

Now you've read our 10 ways to choose a recruitment company, here are 10 Reasons to Choose Aaron Wallis.
