Expertise is also important — while working with an agency, the risk of insufficient qualifications of recruiters is reduced, since any IT recruitment agency that cares about reputation carefully selects employees, trains and develops them. High expertise should not be underestimated — it helps to fill even complex job openings in a short time and find candidates for specific requests. One of the most frequent reasons for contacting a technical recruitment agency is the need to find developers of a narrow profile and with a non-standard stack, therefore, the recruiter's expertise and ability to work with complex positions are of great importance for a quick and effective filling of the job opening.
The last point in order, but not in value, is guarantees. In the case of cooperation with freelancers, there may be difficulties with guarantees, while a tech recruitment agency, as a rule, provides a candidate replacement guarantee. The period may vary slightly — for example, our IT recruitment agency guarantees replacement of a candidate within 60 days after they start working.
