Are you ready to take your recruiting game to the next level? Let’s talk about the secret sauce behind successful collaborations with agency recruiters: the recruiter brief. 

Here's a few pointers on getting the best from our teams.

Know Your Needs: 

Before you even think about drafting a recruiter brief, get crystal clear on what you need. Define the role, responsibilities, and must-have skills. The more specific you are, the better your recruiter can find the perfect match. 

(We also have our own needs - Sam Needs that is. ????)

Company Culture Chronicles: 

Don’t forget to sprinkle some company culture magic into your brief. Give your recruiter insight into what makes your workplace tick. Are you a laid-back startup or a corporate powerhouse? Share the vibe, and watch as candidates who vibe with your culture flock in.

Qualifications Quest:

Be ruthless in listing essential qualifications and skills. What are the non-negotiables? Whether it’s a degree, certification, or specific expertise, make sure your recruiter knows exactly what to look for.

Responsibility Rundown:

Paint a vivid picture of the role’s day-to-day responsibilities. Don’t leave anything to the imagination. From crunching numbers to leading brainstorm sessions, spell it out like you’re narrating a blockbuster movie.

Perk Parade: 

Everybody loves a good perk! Highlight your company’s benefits and perks to sweeten the deal. Whether it’s flexible hours, remote work options, or free snacks, let candidates know what’s in it for them.

Timeline Talk: 

Time is of the essence, so set clear expectations about the hiring timeline. Let your recruiter know if you need someone ASAP or if you have a more leisurely pace. Transparency is key to avoiding miscommunication meltdowns.

Tailor-Made Treats: 

Here’s where the real magic happens. Tailor each brief to fit the unique needs of the role and your company. One size definitely does not fit all in the world of recruiting. Personalize, personalize, personalize!

Inject Some Personality: 

Last but not least, don’t be afraid to inject a bit of your personality into the brief. Add a dash of humor or a quirky anecdote to make it stand out. After all, nobody wants to read a snooze-fest of bullet points.

So, there you have it! Follow these steps, and you’ll be well on your way to writing recruiter briefs that pack a punch. Get ready to see your hiring process level up like never before.
