What is recruitment?
Recruitment is the process of finding and hiring qualified candidates, this can be from within or outside an organisation. The recruitment process analyses the recruitment of the job, screening and selecting candidates, attracting employees to that job and hiring the right candidate.
Recruiters and head-hunters are specialists that find appropriate employees for positions in different sectors. A corporate recruiter will approach a candidate within the company and will base the search on performance and recommendation. Most educational establishments offer job placement as part of their overall tuition agreement. The employment agencies usually bill for the cost of finding appropriate employees and sometimes job seekers are required to pay a portion of their salary back to the agency.
If the agency are recruiting you for a permanent position then the fee might not apply, government and social services are typically free of charge. Training and placements are offered by government agencies such as Department of Work and Pension as part of their get back to work scheme.
