Recruitment Agencies are increasingly popular. More and more companies are relying on the expertise of a recruitment agency for filling vacant positions and projects. But also more and more candidates are finding their way to these agencies!
In this article you will discover how a recruitment agency works, you will learn different types of recruitment and the benefits of recruitment agencies if you are looking for a new job.
Recruitment agencies look for suitable candidates for vacant positions with one or more companies. Based on a job description they search for suitable candidates through their website, network, job fairs, job sites and social media.
When a recruiter has found a potential candidate then he/she will screen the resume, motivation letter and other relevant information about the candidate. If there is a potential match between the candidate’s profile and the job description, the recruiter will plan an interview to discuss the skills and needs of the candidate.
If this interview is successful, the candidate can be invited to an interview with the client. Meanwhile the recruiter is carefully monitoring the application process. If the client considers the candidate appropriate for the vacant position, he or she may get the job.
There are different types of recruitment. Common types are recruitment and selection, project sourcing and interim recruitment. These types of recruitment differ considerably. Your personal desires and ambitions will determine the type that will be most suitable for you.

Project Sourcing has several names, among which outsourcing, co-sourcing, contracting, project work, secondment … to name a few. But what is project sourcing exactly?
Project Sourcing is a type of recruitment where a company is seeking candidates to work on temporary projects with different clients. You will be permanently employed by the project sourcing company.
Project Sourcing is particularly interesting for employers and/or freelance experts with specialized knowledge who want to gain a lot of experience in different projects. By joining a project sourcing company they will be able to work on temporary (usually medium and long term) projects for various clients.
Project Sourcing is interesting for companies because in this way they can temporarily ‘hire’ specialist knowledge whereas the responsibility for the specialists remains with the project sourcing company. Project sourcing thus offers optimum flexibility for companies that are quickly in need of specialized knowledge.
Interim work focuses on short term projects. Temping agencies are searching on behalf of other companies for employees who can quickly fill in short term projects. These can be work assignments to:
