Recruitment agencies can be divided into two main types, depending on who their main customers – the job seekers or employers. In the first case they are generally referred to as employment agencies, while the second – by the recruitment agencies.

Scheme of work recruiters

The scheme of work of employment agencies, in principle, quite simple. For a fee, the applicant provides information on the few vacancies that might be suitable. In principle, this part of the Agency's employment ends, therefore, the ratio of applicants to this business, usually very restrained. Data on vacancies of the Agency obtained either from public sources or directly from the personnel departments of organizations and enterprises.
There are also the Agency of so-called mixed type. They receive income from both people seeking employment and employers.

More professional acting Agency for recruitment of staff, whose work is paid by the employer, not the applicant. The tasks of such an Agency is to search for candidates, whose experience, knowledge, skills and other characteristics to the greatest extent meet the requirements of the employer who offered the job. In addition, personnel staffing Agency conduct an initial interview, check out a summary, arrange psychological and professional tests. Since the income of such agencies depends on the future wages of the candidate (the cost of services varies from one monthly wage to half the annual income of the future employee), they are interested in the best possible conditions for the applicant. Of course, this is true in the case when the applicant meets all the requirements of the employer.
The services of recruitment agencies are like small businesses that do not have their HR services and large corporations, including foreign.

Additional services

In addition to the services by direct recruitment or job search, many recruitment agencies provide various additional services such as training and motivational training, validation and evaluation of personnel and personnel work, organisation of events designed to increase internal loyalty and efficiency of teamwork, psychological testing and more. Finally, the recruitment Agency can provide one-off or permanent services of outsourcing, for example, keep records. For job seekers offers advice on behaviour in the interview, the correct execution summary, various trainings.
