When your in-house HR team is great at recruiting but require a little external help, on-demand recruiting is your best bet. It’s a smart way to ramp up your HR resources without spending a lot of money.

RODs quicken the process of finding the right fit for a job

It boosts your probabilities of recruiting the right person or candidate. On-demand recruiting provides highly specialised and precision-targeted recruiting support to hiring teams. Wanted Analytics says the number of online job listings for recruiters rose by over 4% in August 2019 from the same 1 month period a year before. Today if you have a look at the HR segment, the on-demand recruiting positions are now second only to jobs for HR managers.

Job board Indeed.com, said it had over 58,000 human resources jobs online in August 2019. Indeed.com launched a report in which it clearly shows a constant reduction in the number of HR jobs. This is in contrast to a histrionic rise in on-demand recruiter jobs since the start of 2019.

Over 190K user clicks were recorded with regards to the specific title of “HR Assistant” in the month of August. “HR Generalist” position got more than 149K clicks, “HR Manager” around 130K clicks and “Recruiter” clicks stood at around 120K clicks.

RODs are flexible

On-demand recruiting services are increasingly popular option for companies who want to move away from contract recruiters in favour of a more strategic partner. It does make absolute sense. On-demand recruits can scale up or down as per the company needs and requirements. They can also work directly for the hiring manager over a specific duration of the recruitment process.

You should join hands with a Recruiter on Demand as a part of your Talent Acquisition Strategy when either:

  • You want recruiters who will do all-inclusive hiring for you at a fraction of the cost. Think of the various resources you will need to have an in-house recruitment team – recruiters, space in the office, administrative support, candidate tracking board, subscription to job boards and other overheads. A Recruiter on Demand firm is equipped with all of this and is ready to get started.
  • You want to hire for only specific projects. They may be contractual, meaning existing for a certain period of time.
  • Your organisation is shifting operations from one city to another city and you need around 40 people to be hired quickly. Instead of jotting down the costs for a list of resources, just let a Recruiter on Demand hop in and get the work done.
  • Your firm is bouncing back from a difficult period or gaining its balance after a lay off. In these times, it may not be feasible to have a full-fledged HR team at your disposal but you need to hire a lot of people. You don’t need to spend money on a bunch of contract recruiters. An ROD will get the job done.
