Why use a niche recruiter to find specialist talent?

When it comes to optimising your chances of meeting your business goals, it all begins with having the right people by your side. With the best teams in place, your organisation can pull together efficiently, with everybody understanding just what needs to be done in order to achieve your shared objectives. And, of course, getting the talent you need into your business starts with the recruitment process. This is a notoriously tricky challenge, and it makes sense to partner with a niche recruitment specialist if you want to be confident of getting it right every time.

At Cento we source the highly-skilled, high-level talent that is often hard to find for our clients in a variety of niche sectors, including fire and security, building management systems, energy, lighting and refrigeration, HVAC and ICT.

Allow our dedicated team of sector experts do the resourcing for you.

Engagement with a focused talent pool 

Candidates with the right executive skill sets for your business are hard to find with the broad-stroke procedures of a standard recruitment agency. Niche recruiters have access to a uniquely curated pool of candidates consisting of people who understand your industry. Cento provide intelligent resource solutions for a variety of specific sectors, and we are the natural choice for the most qualified applicants.

Contacts in the right places

Our routine engagement with the sector means that we have access to and attend the best industry events, user groups and forums bringing us into close contact with the very people your business is looking to hire.

This also means your recruitment process will be faster and more efficient. If it costs a little more for a bespoke service, your investment will be more than repaid by the effectiveness of the outcome.

A further advantage of working with a niche recruiter such as Cento is the regular access to sector networks outside the realm of recruitment. We keep our partners up to date with industry developments, new practices, valuable contacts and the latest professional insights, knowledge of which can benefit your company. This is a prime example of how Cento provide more than just recruitment! 

Knowing the market

While more generalist recruiters will know a great deal about conditions and trends in the job market, their knowledge will inevitably be broader than it is deep. Our specialisms in our niche sectors mean we develop a more profound and detailed understanding of the industries in which your business operates.

Our databases of both active and passive high-level candidates are constantly being refined to reflect the best of the available talent. This gives virtually immediate access to the best individuals for a particular role.

As niche recruiters, we’ve invested a great deal of time to establish our position as industry experts, attracting talented candidates on the basis of our reputation. We immerse ourselves in our target markets, building relationships and forming networks with potential candidates long before they are looking for a new challenge. Both clients and candidates are happy to rely on the our judgment in matching the person to the job.

 A Proactive approach

There are many effective ways of filling vacancies which don't need to involve advertising, either by employers or by candidates using job boards. Reputation and repeat business are key to the success of niche recruiters. Many of Cento's candidates never post their CVs because they are confident in our ability to further their careers with the right jobs at the best companies.
