5 Questions to Ask Before Hiring a Recruiter


Your hiring process should be as unique as your company. Before hiring a partner to lead your search and placement process, ask these five qualifying questions:

1. How Does Your Recruitment Process Work?

There’s no "one size fits all" search and placement solution. An attentive recruiter will work closely with you to develop a comprehensive, personalized approach to finding the right fit, before sourcing, screening and connecting you with superior candidates.

 2. How Long Should the Recruitment Process Take?

The best recruiters are data-driven and should have a record of their average time-to-hire, completion rates, and new hire turnover rates. Most finance and accounting roles take approximately 45 days to fill. However, working with an experienced recruiter will accelerate the process, so that you can find the right fit, fast.

3. What Percentage of Your Placements Stay Long-Term?

In a world where job-hopping has become the new normal, how can you ensure that your new hire is in it for the long haul? Finding a recruiter with a low new hire turnover rate (80% or higher) suggests that they are skilled in creating win-win opportunities for employers and employees.

4. How Do You Vet Candidates?

Finding the right fit for your financial roles involves more than sourcing candidates with promising resumes. It’s also essential to consider personality types, working styles, leadership qualities, cultural fit, the candidate’s long-term goals, and more. The best recruiters take the time to develop personal relationships with qualified candidates who will benefit your company most.

5. How Will You Make Our Company Stand Out?

Copy-paste job descriptions aren’t going to cut it. According to Allegis Group, “72 percent of hiring managers say they provide clear job descriptions, while only 36 percent of candidates say the same.” To get the right talent excited about your company, you’ll need a recruiter who can paint a picture of what the role entails, what success will look like, and how the candidate will contribute to solving existing business problems.

Is your business struggling to find the right candidate to join your accounting and finance team? Don’t take a shot in the dark. Who you hire is who you choose to drive your company forward.
