How do you find top facilities management talent?
A facilities management recruitment agency is acting as your representative. Therefore, you need to know how they engage with potential hires on your behalf. You need to ensure that expectations are mutual and that you agree on methods of engagement. Whether that’s advertising, via their database or on social media. In turn, you’ll know where candidates are coming from and whether you’re targeting the best people for the job.
Do you already have a pool of FM talent?
This kind of availability can be the perfect solution. After all, if your recruitment agency already has a list of highly experienced candidates available, you can green-light the recruitment process far faster. Having suitable candidates on tap is a sign that an agency is good at their job and can engage with the right kind of FM talent.
How do you work and what can I expect from your recruitment agency?
It’s essential that you work with an agency that is flexible enough to meet and exceed your needs. You need to know how they communicate and control the hiring process so it aligns with your expectations. This question helps you to identify an agency that works in the way that you do, so you’re perfectly aligned whether that means getting daily feedback or feedback only when the process is finished.
What are your terms?
Business terms and costs will affect your hiring ability so this can be a really critical question. You’ll need to start with your budget and your business needs and gauge whether a recruitment agency can meet your recruitment goals. Remember that fees and business agreements can change as can your circumstances so you can always re-evaluate your choice as your business continues to grow.
Why choosing the right recruitment agency is important

If you want to recruit new facilities management staff effectively and maintain a positive hiring image, it’s critical you get the decision right.
