IT Staffing Service: Why Needed If You Have In-House HR?
IT staffing is a highly desired service in the market: an increasing number of companies need IT professionals. It is challenging to recruit tech specialists because demand significantly exceeds supply in the information technology field.
The complexities of hiring tech specialists aren't only related to staff shortages. Technology companies are launching a large number of new projects that require entire teams of tech professionals in a short time. Rare tech specialists aren't on a job search, so recruiters need to be experts in headhunting.
To increase the efficiency of business processes and quickly recruit tech specialists, companies turn to specialized agencies, for which high-quality and quick selection of tech personnel is a key service.
What does the service of IT staffing include?
The service includes not only the selection of developers. IT staffing is also a search for professionals and related specialists: Support, Marketing, Gamedev and more.
IT recruiters specialize in the selection of specialists of all "levels": from recruiting Mid-level developers to selection of Senior specialists, as well as specialists knowing rare programming languages.
IT staffing stages
IT personnel selection includes five main stages:
Job opening discussion
This is a conversation with a client, during which recruiters discuss the requirements for a job opening, draw up a candidate's profile, work out a selection strategy and set deadlines for the task.
Candidate sourcing and recruiting
Includes active search, interviewing and evaluating candidates. The number of specialists falling into the recruiting funnel depends on the specifics and complexity of the job opening.
The stage includes referral of candidates to the customer, interview coordination with the client, support of the candidate at all stages of selection process.
Making an offer to candidates and subsequent acceptance of the offer or adjusting the search based on the feedback received.
The remuneration for the candidate is most often made by the date of the candidate's employment. Most agencies provide a 100% guarantee of a single-time candidate replacement within the probation period.
