Frequently Asked Questions

How do recruiters find candidates?

We use a variety of methods to source candidates for our open positions. To start, we tap into our candidate network based on who we think could be a good fit. We then use AI matching technology, as well as traditional headhunting and word-of-mouth referrals, advertising & marketing, professional networks & social media. However, we find that the most important thing is to get on the phone and have real conversations with people. This allows us to get a better sense of who they are and what they're looking for in their next role. By using a combination of these methods, we're able to find the best candidates for our open positions.

Do I have to pay recruitment agency?

Staffing agencies provide a free service for job seekers. Employers pay us to help them locate and hire the right candidate. For temporary staffing you will usually be paid an hourly wage by the recruitment business while you will usually be directly on an employer's payroll for permanent positions and long-term contracts.

Why should I choose to work with Wesrec?

Job searching can be a stressful process, but it doesn't have to be. We appreciate that it is a big life decision, and we are here to help you navigate it. At Wesrec, we work hard to make sure that our candidates are matched with the right jobs. We genuinely care about helping people we work with build a successful future and we do what we can to make sure that the process is smooth and stress-free for you.

Should I choose to work with Accounting Recruiting Agencies or an Executive Search Services Firm?

Well, Wesrec happens to be a recruitment business that specializes in both executive search, and accounting and finance staffing solutions. Talent sourcing for specialized positions can be difficult, and we have a successful track record of providing talent acquisition services to fill CEO, CFO, Vice President, and other senior-level executive positions with highly qualified candidates. In addition, we also have a wide talent network for payroll, accounting and finance jobs and candidates as we hire in these functions on a daily basis. We provide innovative talent acquisition and staffing solutions and pride ourselves in being customer service specialists as well as providing excellent recruitment services. As a service-based organization, perfecting the "Wesrec experience" is critical to our business plan and we are always looking for new ways to improve our services.

What are the benefits to using a staffing firm vs managing the entire recruitment process in-house?

It's not always one or the other - we can effectively work alongside your human resources department. Many job seekers work with a recruitment consultant to help them find their dream job. Similarly, our active customers also include businesses that want to build out their dream team. There are plenty of benefits to using external recruiting services rather than hiring in-house. First, recruitment agencies have a wide network of job seekers and understand candidate suitability and talent sourcing, which means that you can meet with a range of qualified candidates. Second, a recruitment consultant is with you to help at every step of the way providing live updates and timely advice which can make the recruitment process much smoother for both the business and the job seeker. Finally, by using external recruiting services, business managers can free up their time for other critical tasks. In short, there are many advantages to using a recruitment agency when hiring new employees.
