Not dipped your toe in the temp world yet? Scaling starts here…
After years spent successfully providing permanent staffing solutions, you’ve developed a system that works. So, why change it? The truth is, there are tons of opportunities to grow your agency by offering temporary staffing solutions – both in the UK and internationally.
Firstly, many of the clients that you’ve already crafted a great working relationship with may develop a sudden need for temporary staffing. In this scenario, finding an agency who understands the unique needs of your business isn’t always easy, meaning you already have a competitive edge.
However, if temporary staffing solutions aren’t among your offering, this may result in your clients seeking recruitment services elsewhere. Not only does this cause you to lose out on business, it also runs the risk of your existing clients finding a new agency with the ability to fulfil all of their needs under one roof.
With this in mind, it might be time to redefine your approach – and supplying temporary staff isn’t half as hard as you may have initially thought. Let’s take a look at how to start scaling your agency like never before…
Temp staffing transforms your bottom line
There’s a wealth of opportunities for your recruitment agency to diversify and achieve sustained growth in the contracting world. Often, the way to attract a client you want to supply permanent candidates to is to support them when they need interim assistance. By providing both, you’ve more chance of becoming an exclusive supplier of staff to that client.
That’s not all. Moving into the temp space provides an agency with a steady income which they can continue to grow. It also allows you to cement yourself as a key industry player, setting you apart from the competition, and increasing your potential to scale in the future.
In contrast, when you rule out partnering with companies on a temporary basis, you run the risk of doing months of work, only for a candidate to decline the job offer or leave the company quickly. Plus, there’s always a chance that a competitor will be so successful at providing interim roles, that a client will use them for permanent hiring too. So, offering both doesn’t just maximise income, it also protects an agency from losing existing clients.
One of the biggest roadblocks for perm agencies looking to break into contracting is often lack of funding – with many under the impression that it’s a risky business, and that they’ll need savings to pull it off. Another barrier is the prospect of time-consuming processes like contracts, payroll, and understanding employment law. This is where Easypay can help.
