6 reasons for using HtE Recruitment

  • You will be allocated a dedicated point of contact, we split the roles internally so we can specialise in positions however each client will be allocated a main point of contact
  • Here for the long run. We are not here just for this year, we have been here since 2007 and are committed to the sectors we work in
  • We have a above average retention rate internally. Some Recruitment Agencies do have high tern over rates and clients have to deal with different people all the time. Our core team have been with the company for 16 years, 8 years and 6 years.
  • Our Core team are on a profit bonus system as well as all the normal Recruitment bonuses, this might seem strange to add this as one of the six areas however we see it as, if our team feel ownership they will deliver a better service.
  • We invest in our platforms. Over the years we have invested heavily in creating a database of over 35,000 CV’s
  • A UK based SME: We are a owner managed company. The owner is onsite nearly every day and is hands on in the running of the business. This means we can adapt and give fast answers.

Why use a Recruitment Agency?

There are many reasons clients have for using a Recruitment Agency like HtE Recruitment. Here are a few reasons clients choose to use a Agency either instead of doing recruitment inhouse or to help increase capacity with the recruitment team:
  • An agency has a database of candidates ready to be contacted, for HtE this is around 35,000
  • A Recruitment Agency does recruitment all year round, we understand the various issues and know how to deal with them
  • A Recruitment Agency can sell your company and make candidates interested in the role
  • Due to volume, an Agency often will be able to use more tools
  • You can focus on running your company, an Agency will deal with the candidate journey so you can focus on the other tasks
  • You could do recruitment yourself however there is so much candidate management that is always needed. Our team spend hours every week to manage candidates through the candidate journey from pre matching to job offer stage
  • Our team as well as the finders service can also support you with retention plans & other HR functions like reference checks etc etc
