Many forms of hiring are delivered by generalist recruiters, and although they often do a good job they usually don’t have a background in HR.

You have an urgent position to fill in the HR department. Where do you look for suitable candidates? It could be a long term role or just a maternity cover position, but it needs filling fast. Many companies feel forced to go down the recruitment agency route, despite the high fees. What if there was another option, which was cheaper and more effective?

Many forms of hiring are delivered by generalist recruiters, and although they often do a good job they usually don’t have a background in HR. This means they don’t have the necessary knowledge or know which skills to look for when hiring a HR professional.

That’s why it makes total sense to use HR people to hire your HR people. A HR Consulting company such as Hunter Adams is perfectly positioned for scouring the industry’s talent pool and finding the ideal candidate for a permanent, fixed term or interim contract.

Sector Expertise

Here at Hunter Adams we are used to hiring HR professionals – we’ve recruited over 100 HR staff for ourselves. We have a unique, market leading HR competence model and we understand the levels of capability within the HR sector. We know all about finding the right fit for a business, with experience across 30 industries.

Another advantage of choosing a HR company to fill your HR position is the wealth of contacts this provides. General recruitment companies specialise in a range of sectors whereas we focus solely on HR. Usually the candidates we put forward we have worked with already, or know people who have recommended them – which is a real advantage.

As HR experts, we are confident we can find the right candidate first time, without flooding you with long lists of profiles.

Cost Effective Option

Getting help recruiting staff can be quite expensive, with added fees here there and everywhere. At Hunter Adams we do things differently because we’re commercially focused. We have a network of hundreds of HR professionals ready to go across the UK – and it won’t break the bank to access our talent pool. The bottom line is, we are more experienced so can fill your position faster – which makes it less expensive for you in the long run. We offer a huge range of benefits but won’t charge you any excess fees.
