Why less is more when it comes to recruitment… on using a headhunter

Updated: Aug 17, 2020

“If we use 4 headhunters, we are 4 times more likely to get the best candidates”

On the face of it this is logical, right? It is simple maths, 1+1+1+1 = 4. However, when it comes to partnering with headhunters this could not be further from the truth. The fewer you use the more you get.

Securing best-in-class talent for your team is time intensive. It requires a headhunter to spend as much resource as they can on identifying, engaging, interviewing, and managing the whole process of the very best people in the market.

To get the best in class talent you deserve means the headhunter must do all of the above to the best of their abilities. This takes skill but importantly time. And just like our clients, headhunters are a business who cannot dedicate that resource if they are less sure of a positive result.

In reality “if you use 4 headhunters, you are 4 times less likely to get the best candidates” Do not only settle for 25%, contact hello@weareresst.com to find out how we deliver 100% time and time again.
