Finance recruiters are the best at what they do – helping employers find and hire qualified talent. Here’s how they can help you.
When Benjamin Franklin said, “Time is money,” he could very well have been talking about hiring. While we’ve said it many times before, it bears repeating: the hiring process can be an arduous one, filled with potential pitfalls and blind corners. To prepare correctly, you need to take a lot of time out of your already busy schedule.
But you don’t have to wing it alone. With their established networks and proven methodologies, finance recruiters can help streamline your hiring process and help you get a candidate that makes sense for your organization.
Finance recruiters offer a disciplined approach and methodology that will increase your chances of making a successful hire. Most organizations – especially growing organizations – don’t have a standardized hiring process or methodology; they simply haven’t had the time to craft a measured approach.
In contrast, tenured finance recruiters who specialize in this area have a proven, time-tested approach to hiring, resulting in a more efficiency driven process.
It’s the job of a finance recruiter to meet qualified candidates all day, every day. As a result, over time they’ve developed a strong sense of what constitutes quality in a potential hire. By leveraging the existing network of a finance recruiter, you can access a much larger pool of qualified talent (including the all-important hidden market of passive jobseekers) than you’d be able to access on your own.

So now, instead of having just one candidate to potentially fill the role, you’ll have four to choose from. This larger selection will help you find the candidate who possesses the qualities necessary for success in the role – including qualities you might not have previously identified. For example, maybe one of your candidates brings something to the table that you hadn’t considered, but that your experienced finance recruiter, thanks to their years of experience, understands as being of value. As such, you’ll end up with a quality candidate you might not have otherwise considered.
Offer and close
Finance recruiters aren’t paid just to find talent – they’re paid to engage, assess, and deliver it. Because they participate in so many recruiting sessions, finance recruiters historically deliver better results with the offer and close process. They understand both how people make decisions and what a reasonable offer relative to market expectations looks like. They will know what kind of offer could prove to be a deal breaker for your candidate of choice – invaluable knowledge when you’re trying to secure a potential hire.
Finance recruiters can offer you access to a pool of pre-qualified talent, an established, disciplined approach to hiring, and a proven track record of success. By using a finance recruiter, you’re bound to improve your chances of a successful hire.
