What are IT Recruitment Agencies?

IT recruitment agencies are third-party and external recruiters that find skilled and qualified candidates to fill vacant job positions in various IT organisations. Companies looking to fill vacancies use external IT recruitment agencies to source for; screen and even sometimes interview candidates who are hoping to fill open job positions. The IT recruitment agency will be experts in the IT sector with the experience and resources to reach a large number of potential IT job candidates. Also, job seekers looking for suitable job situations can also contact the IT recruitment agency in an effort to be considered for any such vacancies. 

How an IT Recruitment Agency Gets Paid

For job candidates using an IT recruitment agency as the middle-man, there is usually no cost incurred. However, companies using their services will, in most circumstances pay a fee. Fee structures could be based on a flat-rate or per successful candidate taken on.

IT Recruitment Agency Models

There are different IT recruitment agency models that are used when working with companies seeking candidates. These include purely external agencies; where the recruiters remain completely external to the company. In this model, the client or recruiting company will approach the IT recruitment agency with their requirements and suitable candidates would subsequently be presented to the client.

Sometimes, the IT recruiters would temporarily integrate themselves within the company looking to recruit so that they can advise and oversee effective sourcing procedures. These arrangements can occur as required. This approach would be preferable when the company looking for candidates are filling a large number of positions as costs and time saving would make a huge difference.
