In today’s disruptive and overly competitive business environment, many businesses have had to draw a red line between what constitutes core business functions and what can be outsourced. This is especially the case in the telecom industry, where there are plenty of labor-intensive tasks.
Unfortunately, the coronavirus pandemic has presented significant challenges to telecommunications services providers, with most requiring their workforce to work remotely or even laying them off altogether. These bottlenecks mean that the industry has had to deal with the stinging challenge of skills shortage across the different sectors of the telecom industry.
The biggest question then becomes; How do you find a reliable telecommunications engineer recruitment agency? Or still, where do you find the right recruitment agencies for the telecom industry? In this article, we’re going to try and comprehensively answer these two questions.
How Do Recruiting Companies for Telecom Work?
Put simply, telecom recruitment agencies work for both employers and employees. The employers come to these agencies with vacant job positions they need to fill, after which they use their huge networks and a candidates database a repository to find the perfect shortlist. Along with that, they also pre-screen the candidates and forward them for interviews with the employer.
If the agency’s candidate successfully passes the interview, the client pays a predetermined fee, which is mainly a percentage of the candidate’s salary.
How to Find a Reliable Telecom Recruitment Agency
If you conduct a casual online search, you’ll find hundreds (and possibly thousands) of offshore telecom IT staffing agencies promising the best staffing services. However, finding the right telecom recruitment agency is a big challenge, especially if it’s your first time.
Below, we have compiled a few nuggets that signal whether an agency is reliable or not:
There are countless offshore recruitment agencies out there. If you’re looking for a reliable one, however, you must be able to identify the kind of recruitment agency that you’re looking for. Typically, there are two types of agencies; general recruitment agencies and specialized recruitment agencies.
Either way, a reliable and reputable online recruitment agency should have a good reputation for past and current clients. The last thing you want to pay a company only to realize their recruitment process is flawed. Or still, disappear with your money altogether.
Another important factor to consider when looking for telecom recruiters or a recruitment agency is their past working experience. Ideally, you should hire a company that successfully staffed some companies within the telecom industry. After all, how will you be able to prove their effectiveness in helping companies with their staffing needs?
A reliable telecom recruitment agency should be able to match the client’s needs with the potential candidate’s skill set. Before hiring any telecom headhunters, ensure that they understand your business processes, values, and company culture. And while at it, they should be competent enough to show whether or not they can find a hire that can match your job requirements.
Another important thing you need to do is to compare and contrast different recruitment agencies before making the final decision. Ask business owners within your industry that have worked with the recruitment agency regarding their past performance or even ask the agency itself for references. Once you’re fully satisfied with their performance, you can go ahead and hire them.
With so many online scams out there, it is absolutely important to check whether the recruitment agency you’re about to partner with is registered with appropriate agencies. Any reputable firm will be registered with some government or professional body, and ascertaining this is one way of checking whether the agency is reliable or not.
Where to Find Reliable Telecom Recruitment Consultants
There are many IT outsourcing hubs around the world where you can hire telecom headhunters. But depending on your budget and hiring needs, some countries present better opportunities than others.
One of the most popular telecom outsourcing destinations in the world is Ukraine. Along with having one of the most educated populations in Eastern Europe, Ukraine is centrally located, making it convenient to work with clients in different time zones.
Along with that, the average salaries of telecom professionals in the country are comparatively lower compared to those of other European countries, which is an added bonus if you’re working on a tight budget.
Unfortunately, the abundance of tech and telecom skills in Ukraine also makes the outsourcing environment overly competitive, with many telecom agencies setting up bases in the country. In hindsight, this makes it extremely challenging for companies to find the right telecom headhunting agencies.
