- Has the agency been completely transparent about their costs? Do you know to the penny how much you will pay if you employ a candidate the agency has introduced? Watch for hidden fees especially with regard to company benefits such as company car etc.
- Are you confident that the recruitment consultant has a background in successfully solving recruitment problems within the sector your company operates, for example engineering, logistics, manufacturing and defence to name but a few?
