Difference Between Traditional and Niche Recruitment Agency

Recruitment refers to a term where the end result is the employment of a qualified or skilled person suitable for a particular job. The recruitment process involves various extensive selection procedures. These procedures are often very tedious and vigorous. If you want to recruit staff for your business, you will obviously want to recruit the most skillful and talented employees willing to work in the pay package that your company offers. Employment agencies have become very prominent due to the growing demand of the recruiters who don’t want to invest time and effort in doing the legwork to find suitable candidates and would rather let these agencies handle the job. When it comes to the jobseekers, many fail to get the desired job because they are unaware of the opportunities or often don’t know where to apply. This is where a reputed employment agency with a list of client companies and their job vacancies can help.

Primarily, there are two types of recruiting agencies: Niche recruitment agency and traditional recruitment agency. Since people often get confused among these two, let’s take a look at each of them:

A niche recruitment agency selects highly talented candidates from very few domains. The domain from which the candidates are selected might be Information Technology or Engineering, which could be anywhere from Computer Science, and Electronics, to Mechanical or Civil. A niche recruitment agency provides the industry with highly skilled and talented candidates from a particular geographical area who have sound knowledge in their field.

A traditional recruitment agency is an employment agency that has a brick-and-mortar office. It is like a walk-in drive. The candidate visits any local branch of the agency to submit his/her resume. The recruitment agency then shortlists appropriate resumes. Whenever a vacancy crops up at any company, the agency forwards the resumes of the selected candidates.

For the jobseekers, it is important to rely on a good and renowned employment agency to make sure that they get a call from top notch companies. From the point of view of companies, joining hands with an adept recruitment Sydney agency can help them get desired candidates with the requisite skill sets quickly.

While a niche recruitment agency can help cover one or more market sectors and find candidates with specific skill sets in a particular niche, a traditional recruitment agency is ideal when companies need a wider talent pool from diverse backgrounds to suit multiple job positions.
