FAQs

Why should companies work with recruitment agencies?

Working with a recruitment agency helps employers save the time, money and resources that are needed to source, interview, reference check and shortlist a pool of candidates. Recruitment agencies allocate their resources to find the best candidate for the company, from a wide range of sources and a passive candidate market. Recruitment agencies serve as the middle man between candidates and clients, to ensure both parties are satisfied. SMS Professional has invested strongly in premium back-end searches to access candidates that are not actively on the market which helps to source fine talent.  

What is the CV selection process?

The CV selection is one of the 12 steps of the recruitment process that involves shortlisting candidates from 12 sources and communicating progress with client. It involves having a comprehensive understanding of client’s requirements and using it to filter out candidates.
