Recruitment Agencies and consultants can bring a high level of expertise to the task of finding the best person for a vacancy. These organizations can assist in attracting candidates, either by using their existing databases of personnel or by advertising under their banner in areas for which they specialize.
Recruiting areas can be relieved of undertaking a considerable amount of administrative/organizational work, as the recruitment company will provide resources to concentrate on the recruitment task.
The responsibility for making the final selection recommendation will always be with a selection committee and the decision to appoint will also remain with the University delegated authority.
On the other hand, charges will vary considerably depending on the agency chosen and the level of support required.
Agencies will probably seek to charge a certain percentage of the remuneration package (including base salary and all other benefits and allowances including bonuses, motor vehicles etc). These fees are usually exclusive of advertising and travel expenses. Charges for executive searches may be higher.

A little white lie never hurt anyone, right? Wrong. When it comes to recruitment, being honest and telling the truth is vital from all parties. We've seen what happens when candidates add qualifications to their CV that they don't actually have. We've been asked to go against our values and compromise on employment laws. Being honest and having integrity matters throughout the whole recruitment process. Our principles We pride ourselves in building a great relationship with all of our clients and candidates. Where possible, we like to visit a client at their premises to get a real feel for the company to help us match the right candidates. We also like to meet candidates (a coffee shop is our favourite location!) to get to know the real person and find out what they're looking for in their career. We're pretty good at asking all of the right questions, but equally, we rely on the person on the other side of the table to give us honest answers. Honesty and clients For clients, it's important that we really understand what type of person you're looking for and what skills and qualifications you expect your new employee to have.
