Business use specialist recruiters for secretarial staff

Press Release Author: Jason Edworthy

Industry: Human Resources

Press Release Summary: Life is hard for businesses looking to recruit new
secretarial staff or PA's at present. There is a worldwide skills shortage and
online job advertisements are at a record high. In response, the recruitment
business is booming as employers look for external assistance to ease their plight.

Press Release Body: A local recruitment firm can offer you great benefits if you are
looking to hire staff for short periods of time and also wish to use the recruitment
company's services as an outsourced employer.
The recruitment firm will charge you an hourly or daily rate for your secretary or
PA and also act as the worker's employer and will be responsible for insurances,
salary, national insurance and all employee benefits. Although this is generally
more expensive than if you act as the employer yourself, there is just a single
invoice to be paid rather than the workload associated with an additional employee.
Also the recruitment firm takes all the risk and you can ask for replacement staff
at any time if the employee is not working out like you hoped or if you no longer
require their services.
This can be particularly useful if you require particular skills for only a short
period of time, for example you need secretarial staff to help you out at a busy
time or a personal assistant to fill in whilst your regular employee is on leave.
Using a contractor through a recruitment firm can also often be cheaper than using a
professional services firm.
A recruitment firm can also provide you with benefits if they are expert in a
particular industry or employee market. They may have specialized knowledge of where
to find and how to attract employees of particular skills types. If you are unable
to attract the employees you want yourself, you may require the services of a
recruitment agency that has good industry contacts and can headhunt the appropriate
staff you require.
