Want to increase the success rate of your recruitment placements? Find out what you need to tell your candidates about your clients.

As any good recruitment company knows, you need to get the balance right. Not only do you need to make sure that you are looking for the best candidates for any vacancy that you are tasked with filling, but you also need to make sure that you help candidates find the company that is going to be the perfect fit for them.

Your candidates are going to have questions about your clients, so it is important to answer these to the best of your ability and give them the details they really want to know.

With that being said, let’s take a look at what your candidates should know about your clients according to experts New Millenia.

What is on the table?

There is only one place to begin, and this is by explaining the offer that is on the table. Make sure the client has all of the information they need about the terms and conditions of the contract.

They should be aware of what days and hours they will need to work, how much money they will receive, whether there are any stipulations, and what extra benefits are included.

Whether or not flexible working is supported 

Flexible working has become incredibly important to a lot of people in the current day and age. Whether clients have children or other commitments, it can certainly be beneficial for them to be able to adjust their hours or work from home whenever possible.

More and more companies are supporting flexible working in light of the pandemic, and this is something they will continue in the future as well. Therefore, candidates are going to want to know if the business in question falls into this category or whether they have a stringent approach in terms of work hours and work environment. 

What the client is not looking for

It is just as important to know what the client is not looking for as it is to know what the client is looking for. This can really help candidates to get a better understanding as to whether they are going to be the right fit. After all, no one wants to waste anyone’s time.

You want to make sure that the person you hire for the job ticks all of the boxes. This is why we recommend that you explain both what the client expects from a person in the said role and also what they do not want from this individual.

Details about the working culture

Last but not least, it is also important to give the candidate some information about the working culture at the business in question. After all, you want to make sure that the client and the candidate have a long working relationship.

It is about ensuring that the candidate is the right fit for the team, as well as having all of the qualifications and skills that are needed. This is why it is important to spend some time discussing the working culture at the business in question so that the candidate can determine whether or not this will be right for them. 

So there you have it: some of the main things that candidates want to know about your client. It is important to remember that you are not only working for the business that is hiring but you are also working for the candidate, so you need to make sure that both are satisfied when it comes to assisting them with your expert help.
