The Benefits of Outsourcing Recruitment to a Specialist Agency

The benefits of outsourcing recruitment to a specialist agency

Outsourcing recruitment to specialist agencies is fast becoming the most popular way to source top-quality talent for companies across the globe.

Research suggests that the ‘Global Recruitment Process Outsourcing market is expected to reach $19.69 billion by 2028.’ This increase is driven by the number of companies striving to gain a competitive edge by streamlining the recruitment process, improving candidate quality and reducing recruitment overheads.

But how can a specialist recruitment agency help you achieve this? And what can you expect from the outsourcing process?


Recruitment Outsourcing Process Explained

Here at Mackinnon & Partners, we provide a solution which encompasses the meticulous Sourcing, Screening and Selection of candidates across a range of industries, including Renewable Energy, Oil and Gas and Construction.


Specialist agencies like Mackinnon & Partners undertake in-depth market research analysis, create talent maps, and keep a close eye on competitors to source the very best talent for your business. Not only will this ensure a skills match, but also alignment with company culture and values.


The screening process involves the in-extensive reviewing of resumes and application materials to assess skill matches, as well as orchestrating pre-assessments that will allow us to curate a list of top candidates.


Once screened, we’ll work with you to create a shortlist of top candidates. We’ll then coordinate interviews and support you with the interview process, verify references and background checks and undertake negotiations with the chosen candidate to present an offer that appeases both parties.


The Benefits of Outsourcing Recruitment

As well as having sourcing, screening and selection processes taken care of, outsourcing recruitment to specialist agencies also gives you access to a range of benefits, some of which include:


Improved Candidate Quality

Outsourcing the recruitment process means handing it over to specialists who have expert knowledge of your industry and the kind of candidate you require. Having the time and resources to invest in meticulous sourcing and screening processes means candidates are often of a higher quality, matching your requirements and your company culture and values.



One of the biggest benefits outsourcing your recruitment process offers is efficiency. Specialist agencies can commit ample time to sourcing the perfect candidate – something you may not be able to do while simultaneously running your business. Time-to-fill is dramatically reduced when you outsource, with many positions filled within days, rather than the weeks or months this process can take in-house.



Outsourcing to specialist agencies reduces recruitment overhead costs, like advertising and administration. Costs are also reduced by the time-efficient manner of recruitment outsourcing and lower candidate risk, making the process more cost-effective overall.
