In today’s age and time, company’s are looking for certain flexibility with a lover cost, this is where Recruitment agency comes in.


Hiring a specialised Recruitment agency will take the stress out of long hiring process such as resourcing, interviewing, background checks ect.


Here are five reasons you should hire a specialised Recruitment agency



No training and recruitment cost


With specialised Recruitment agency, you will not have to invest your valuable time and money in training new staff. Specialised recruitment agency will make sure that each candidate that comes to your site is vetted for their ability to fulfil your unique demands.


This is curtail in the logistics industry where downtime can result in huge losses for your business. At Flexsource we have a large pool of qualified candidates that can be placed when and where our clients require.



Scale quickly


The beauty of working with an established staffing firm who is specialised in your industry is that they can scale up and down as you need to. When those frantic moments hit and you need 30, 40, or 50, staff overnight, they’ll be there to help. The staff will come in, fulfil the production requirement, and slip out without you even knowing it.



All of this without training costs, any significant downtime, or the pain of trawling through resumes all night trying to find skilled workers to fill the void.



Given Flexsource longstanding reputation in the logistics industry, we have an active database unmatched in size and specialisation.



Manage Risk and avoid disaster


Imagine a scenario that you had just laid off 40 staff members at your main facility. The next day, a snowstorm rolls in and shuts down distribution for three business days.

How are you going to get back on track and ensure productivity is not impacted?


This was a real-life scenario for one of our light industrial clients, Keeling’s Market. Compounding the shutdown was an increase in demand!

In 8 hours of the shutdown, Flexsource was able to place 20 experienced staff in the distribution centre, followed by another 30. All within 3 business days!


This is just one example of how a specialist staffing agency can alleviate the inevitable stress and risk associated with production and distribution facilities.



Fill fluctuating staff demands


Market needs, seasonality and other external factors contribute to your requirement for staff. When you’re in the busiest period and need staff, you simply can not afford to go trough lengthy recruitment process.


Working with a specialised Recruitment agency such as Flexsource, help you better manage  this situation.  We slot straight into your current operations with the staff you need and make a clean exit when the high-demand periods are over. You’ll get qualified workers without the headache of hiring, training, or dealing with employment contracts.



They are reliable and stable



When you’re looking for a recruitment partner it makes sense to go for a well-established firm with security and a long-standing reputation. The last thing you want is to run into a disaster period when you need staff quickly, and your agency has gone out of business, or they’ve run out of staff to place!



Flexsource has 80 recruitment specialists and 300 clients nationwide. Not to mention that on any given day there is over 4,000 Flexsource staff placed in roles. We’re established, secure, and not going anywhere. So, you can be sure that your scaling employment needs will be met if and when you need them.
