In-House recruitment Vs Recruitment agency?

The need to recruit the best candidates for your business is essential for success, but should this task of sourcing, interviewing and training be entrusted to an in-house team or outsourced to a recruitment agency that does it day-in-day-out?

Both can be advantageous however it’s worth taking the time to look at what outside expertise could bring to your recruitment process, for example business critical roles need to be treated differently to that of graduate or junior positions.

Why choose Rapid Recruit?


With over 30 years’ experience in recruitment we know how crucial having skilled, reliable workers is to the success of your business. We work with you to understand your business needs and seasonal trends through management of new starter feedback and exit interview reviews – we will become an extension of your team.


Our recruitment consultants are individually trained and experienced in the specific sectors and geographies they are recruiting for. Alongside this our stringent recruitment procedure ensure all candidates are pre-screened, skills tested, and reference checked. Our structured interview process allows us to fully assess candidates and match them with a position in your business. We aim to put the right candidate, in the right job, first time!


One main reason why in-house recruitment is often favoured is that it allows you to avoid the cost associated with an outsourced agency. Although these savings may be appealing at the time, realising a few months into a recruit that it might not be the right one and that they need replacing, can in the long term be costlier and also affect the productivity of a business.

Although recruitment agencies can’t offer a 100% guarantee for their hires, we can bring a level of expertise and a pool of talented candidates to a search that an in-house team simply does not have access too. Being able to induct and train workers in branch allows us to pool workers in advance, enabling us to assist with short notice requirements. So, the costs may balance themselves out in the long run. It’s also worth remembering that you only pay your recruitment agency as and when you need them, and you may not actually need them all the time.

At Rapid Recruit, we know that finding the right people is key to keeping your business moving. From the moment, you contact us we work to understand your recruitment needs, and deliver trained, compliant, quality staff.
