By sharing this series, we hope everyone benefits for expectations help drive recruiter engagement and collaboration with their client human resources and hiring managers.

Today’s blog is about recruiter service level criteria.

Hiring managers and human resources professionals should know recruitment service levels vary. They should know and champion this balance within their employer. This is part 1 of a multi-part blog series.

Part 1: Position Criteria

Service levels vary based on client requirements across the process of needs-discovery, source, screen, qualify, submit, feedback and refine, candidate preparation and follow-up process. Senior managers also know that fees vary relative to service level.

Hiring managers and especially human resources managers are keenly aware that depth and scope of each of these steps can, and should vary. It can vary for the wrong reason based on recruiter skill level. Human resources professionals know position level criteria should vary based on three key factors:

  1. Position type. Is the position an individual contributor, or a supervisor, manager or executive?
  2. Performance level. Is the position responsible and accountable for a team or a P&L for a line of business?
  3. Salary grade. Is the position compensated relative to the local market for similar positions at similar companies?

Most organizations have clearly defined these factors and trained management on how they create exceptional, balanced organizations.

Your recruiter should be aligned with this organizational balance.

Be proactive and work with your recruiter. The best relationships between recruiters and their client partners are built on a foundation of collaboration. Investment of each other’s time as partners ensures exceptional outcomes.
