Understanding Companies Hiring Needs

Before hiring a recruitment agency in Bulgaria, such as Top Skills, you should have a clear understanding of your hiring needs to know how to best use of our services.

  • If you hire infrequently having a dedicated recruiter on staff is frivolous and you need a recruitment agency
  • If you hire regularly – about once a month. You might have someone who does much of your recruiting, trained to screen and interview compliantly, but they may need help getting the right candidates, not applicants, in for interview.
  • If you hire frequently Top Skills can be your recruiting department taking the bulk of the work off your hands and free you up to hire for quality, rather than quantity.

Companies pay Top Skills Recruitment to fill jobs, not book interviews. You will get fewer candidates, but each will be qualified, have the appropriate soft skills and the relevant career outlook.

You may want to stop hiring new graduates and look at a more experienced worker (with a raised salary) to reduce the churn normally experienced when hiring graduate trainees.

If a critical team member is taking a family or medical leave, you may need hire a temp to fill their spot. Consider using this as an opportunity to screen someone for another vacancy you might have within the company. If the temp is a good worker and fits in well with your team, you might even want to cross-train them during their temp stint to see if they are a good fit for the vacancy.

If you have a position that takes longer than the trial period to train, then temporary to permanent might be a good fit for you. Sometimes, it can take months to see if a candidate is the right fit for some openings. When you do temp to perm, you will have a longer trial period and if they do not work out, you do not even have to fire them.
