2018 Recruitment... Myth versus Reality

2018 could be the most productive year for recruitment yet, with more new agencies being established in January and February of this year than during the same period of 2017. Exciting news for clients and candidates as it could lead to more opportunities for both...

We at Riada know we put the needs of our customers at the forefront of all that we do, and I'm sure if you're reading this, you are aware of the value that you could benefit from having our industry knowledge, expertise and connections. However, some may still be hesitant to get in touch due to hearsay over time.

We have asked the Riada team what are the most common misconceptions they have heard surrounding recruitment, check them out below >

Myth 1 - Recruitment is simple...

The reality... In fact, it's quite the opposite.

Although the recruiting process looks like a relatively simple one, in actual fact good recruitment specialists will take the time to place the right candidates with the right employer and in the right job. To understand both a candidate and client perspective, recruiters need a lot of emotional intelligence as well as business intelligence to meet the needs of the two. Riada was established in 2000, and with a repeat business rate of 95% it is not hard to see how much hard work our specialists dedicate to the business... we are so passionate about what we do.

Myth 2 - All recruiters are exactly the same...

The reality... Riada has an unique outlook.

We at Riada pride ourselves on having our own individual ethos, passionate work force and personalised company vision. Whilst we can appreciate that some recruiters have a fast track approach and are more focused on their numbers, we like to form long lasting relationships, listening to you so we can understand your personal and business needs, searching for the best candidate to fit into the job role and your company culture whilst delivering and become your recruitment team.

Myth 3 - All you need is a good job description to find the right candidate...

The reality... If candidates are using multiple channels to find jobs then so should you.

A description cannot fully sell a job. However a good recruiter has an extensive knowledge and network of people and can help tap into top tier talent to consider a potential position. Relying solely on a job descriptions to bring in potential candidates means more often than not you will bypass the better options. Let our Riada do the hard work and get in touch today on the phone 028 7032 6600 or via email

Myth 4 - Always use the biggest recruitment agencies...

The reality... You'll be missing out.

If you avoid independent recruitment agencies you are missing out. Riada are small enough to care and big enough to deliver. Check out our testimonials on our website and read our candidate experiences of Riada and how we helped them achieve their recruitment and career goals.
