Top 5 reasons to Hire a Contract Recruiter

  • Manage Increased Recruitment Activity – Organizations often find their recruitment team stretched thin and could use additional support.  A Contract Recruiter assists the recruitment function, for a desired amount of time, reducing the pressure on your team.
  • Mitigate risk – Contractors are payrolled and processed through Granite Consulting. They are hired for a specific term with specific goals.  These terms and goals can change based on organizational needs.
  • “Try before you buy” – We’ve spoken to a few organizations that will hire a contractor for 6 months. If they “fit,” they are often converted to permanent employees.
  • Headcount Conflicts – Organizations are often restricted from adding another resource until there are headcount and budget approvals.  Hiring a contractor resource while you wait can provide the support you need now.
  • Reduce Agency Fees – This is more prevalent in the small to mid-size organizations that may be considering going to an “agency” (=placement fees) to hire 2 or more roles.  Hiring a contract recruiter to fill those roles can save you up to 60% in any associated agency fees.
