When your job openings rise steeply, you might think to add another recruiter in your team.

And, you don’t need to spend on recruitment equipment or technology which is highly required for hiring process. They have their own tools and often have access to enterprise-level recruitment solutions, tools and technology, which your company may not have. Subsequently, you pay a transparent and manageable fee to your contract recruiter, and that’s it.
2. Seamless integration
Needless to say, when you hire an internal recruiter, they will take at least a month to understand your work culture and process. And if you hire a fresher, you can’t expect any real contributions from them for three months. After all, that’s called, onboarding.
When you hire a contract recruiter, you don’t have to face that lag. Because, contract recruiters often are experienced professionals, who can start the work the day you send them your requirements. They will plug into your applicant tracking system (ATS) and get cracking. They’re an extension of your in-house recruitment team without the hassle.
