Sometimes spikes in hiring require additional recruiting support ASAP, but there isn’t time or justification to hire a full-time recruiter to your team. That’s when engaging a contract recruiter makes the most sense. Then the trick is finding the right recruiter, with the right experience, who is available immediately, for the right amount of time. No easy task, unless that task happens to be what you do day in and day out.
Often companies turn to their existing staffing vendors to find contract recruiters, but this can be a mistake. You probably wouldn’t hire an accountant through an IT staffing firm, so why would you use that same firm to find a recruiter? Since it’s not core to their business, they may be tempted to treat your need as a one-off: A quick job board search, an email asking “are you available, will you take this rate?” and a submittal. Not exactly a formula for YOUR success.
