Hiring Managers often rely on their existing staffing and consulting partner to hire Project Managers for additional bandwidth. Some of those partners tend to be mainstream commercialized IT staffing firms. Although traditional staffing firms are able to fill generic Project Management roles, they struggle to find top talent for complex projects such as ERP implementations, cloud infrastructure or cloud engineering. This is where working with a specialized Project Management recruitment agency such as Progile Tech Inc, make sense.
A boutique or specialized staffing agency carefully curates the applicants according to the clients’ specific project requirements. It has specific strategies and processes to ensure high-quality staff admissions that meet the employer’s requirements. Generally, a boutique staffing agency is assumed to be small in size and that it takes on smaller assignments. This is not the case, a boutique agency is an agency that simply provides a more customized service than a commercialized agency.
Large commercial agencies have huge databases of candidates and have more experience in the recruiting business. These agencies have the capacity to provide temporary and permanent staff. Usually, large agencies are assumed to be the better choice for this reason. This may not hold true is specialized searches. With the recent emergence of newer and more specialized skill-sets, it is becoming increasingly difficult to fill all positions. This is one of the key reasons boutique staffing agencies are gaining popularity.
A boutique staffing agency conveys its true value by applying customized search methodologies to the recruitment process which ensures the high-quality of the staff recruited. Their objective is to find the most suitable candidate, no matter how specialized or niche.
In conclusion, working with specialized agencies for specialized roles tends to cut down hiring time, reduces management oversight and adds bench-strength to your team.
