Why use a recruitment agency?

You are the manager or owner of a dental practice and you come into work to find that dreaded letter/email. One of your best members of staff has just handed in their notice.

You could try and counter offer them to keep them there but the likelihood is if they have made the decision to leave in the first place, they will only do the same in 6 months.

It’s ok though right? They’ve given you a months notice, that’s ages! But is it? No it isn’t, the process to find the right member of staff can be a lengthy and time consuming process, which, let’s face facts, most busy practice managers and practice owners could really do without.

This is why it is so beneficial to use a recruitment consultant who specialises in the type of candidates you are looking for and here are some key reasons why.

Access to the best candidates

Recruitment agencies have the best access to job seekers on the market and people who are actively looking for a new position are more likely to register with a recruitment agency.
