Prefered Recruitment Supplier

Selecting ASC as your recruitment partner of choice

Working with a recruitment agency

There are a number of ways you can work with a recruitment agency including exclusively (sole supplier agreement), as part of a PSL (Preferred Supplier List) or a small number of agencies. However you wish to work with an agency, ASC can accommodate your choice.

Exclusive Recruitment Partner (Sole Supplier Agreement)

Working with just one agency can save you time and money in the long term because the agency is 100% committed to you as they are entirely responsible for your recruitment requirements.

For you this means:

  • No duplication of candidates
  • A better candidate experience (they are only approached by one agency not multiple for the same job)
  • No answering the same questions time and again
  • Not dealing with multiple agencies for the same role which can be time-consuming
  • More time to focus on other business needs

At ASC we prefer to work exclusively with our clients where possible. This is because we know we can offer a quality service through the ability to provide tailored solutions that fit your business needs.

We can assure if you work exclusively with us you will receive:

A dedicated Account Manager
Someone who knows your sector well and will focus on your roles only.

High-quality candidates
Your dedicated person will focus all their time on finding candidates for your roles. More time means they can be extra thorough to ensure they find the best person for the job.

More control
Your reputation and brand is important to you. Working with just ASC will ensure your message remains consistent when we are speaking to potential hires.

Working with multiple agencies as part of a PSL

Working with a number of different agencies can be beneficial if you are hiring for high-turnover positions as it can keep costs down. However ensuring these agencies are part of well-structured PSL that provides clear guidelines, service agreements and performance indicators ensures a more streamlined service and consistency of candidates.

ASC is happy to work with clients that offer a clear PSL agreement. We have demonstrated our ability to perform to the clients we currently work with and by being awarded REC Audited status.

Working with a small number of agencies

Choosing to work with a small number of agencies (2-3) can improve the quality of candidates you receive. It allows you to build more invested relationships. It may be that you choose to work with agencies that specialise in your sector or the skills you are looking for.

We have a number of long-standing clients who choose to work this way. Many of them work with us because we are specialists within their sectors and have been able to showcase our knowledge of the marketplace and take the time to find the right candidates for them.
