Why should you use a specialist affordable housing recruitment consultancy?
When you are recruiting, your top priority is to employ the perfect candidate, fast. Anything else is a waste of time, money and resources. That’s why, when you work in the affordable housing sector it’s important to use a specialist recruitment agency.
Here’s the benefits a professional and experienced affordable housing recruitment consultancy can bring to your next recruitment process:
Knowledge of your sector
When you are growing your team, get ahead of the game by appointing a recruitment consultancy that knows your sector inside out. They should have a proven track record of working with organisations like yours and be able to anticipate the challenges you face.
This will save a lot of time in devising a strategy for securing your perfect candidate and will help get them in post quick.
A thorough process
To get the best value from a recruitment strategy it needs to be thorough and tailored to your business needs. A specialist recruitment consultancy will offer a bespoke search; headhunting the very best candidates who may not even be looking for a new job; and attracting ideal job seekers through targeted advertising.
The search will be based on research to identify people who are a strong match for your business, with the skills and experience you need.
A great recruitment consultancy will then conduct its own interviews with a shortlist of candidates to ensure only the very best are sent to you for consideration.

They already know your ideal candidate
A specialist affordable housing recruitment agency will already have an extensive network of people looking to develop their careers within your industry. Your perfect candidate may already be on their database.
This rich knowledge and talent network will put you in pole position for securing your new team member.
Experienced temporary staff
If you are looking for someone to help deliver a specific project, fill a gap or establish a new area of your business, a specialist recruitment agency will be able to offer you experienced interim consultants for short term contracts.
These are people they already know and trust, so you can be assured they have the ability to hit the ground running.
