In the face of current uncertain global and economic trading conditions, the recruitment industry continues to expand in line with worldwide predictions. Low unemployment and an increase in the retiring workforce together with the impact of the gig-economy and desire for flexible working patterns is keeping the recruitment sector relatively buoyant. Nonetheless, with the complex trading environment and cost of living crisis, the need for recruitment businesses to make their operations more efficient has become mission critical. 

How can a recruitment agency achieve this? 

Before we answer that question, it’s important to understand what’s in the in tray of every recruitment business, every single day. This is not an exhaustive list – it’s only a start; managing candidate interest, building an employer brand, providing an outstanding service to clients, handling pay and bill requirements, providing pre-employment background checks on candidates, loading new jobs into your CRM, keeping your website up to date - the list goes on.  
The days of managing all this by hand are long gone. Using technology is the key to unlocking greater efficiencies.  
With the rise of back office and front office recruitment software, agencies – like yours - can now streamline operations and focus on what really matters; finding the best candidates for your clients. Speed is of the essence and if you’re second, you are nowhere.   
By embracing tech, you can reduce the amount of time spent on administrative tasks, such as data entry, scheduling, and record keeping. This not only saves time, but can also improve accuracy, by minimising the risk of errors and oversights.  Less mundane and labour-intensive tasks enable your consultants to build important relationships thereby helping you secure more opportunities. These are exciting times for you but must be maximised.  

At Access Recruitment, we’ve looked at this and it’s no understatement to say technology is not a nice to have, it’s your universe.
