Although the headhunter service has long been effective and popular in other countries, it has yet to reach its full potential in Vietnam. The reason for this is that when it comes to deciding whether or not to engage headhunter services, many managers are still unsure if they will be as productive as they think. Although headhunters may not have the same understanding of your business as in-house personnel, their industry experience can help you save time and gain expertise in the procedure for hiring.

1. What is headhunter service?

Companies that provide recruitment outsourcing services are known as headhunter companies. Businesses (service buyers) will be required to pay a fee to hire businesses that provide headhunter services (headhunter sellers) for the process of seeking and recruiting individuals.

Many other characteristics can be used to categorize these businesses, including the recruitment industry, the number of positions, and so on. This not only strengthens the headhunter service providers’ position but also as a reference point for enterprises during the supplier selection process.

2. Things to keep in mind when choosing a headhunter company

The first stage in a successful headhunter service recruitment process is to select a high-quality partner. When looking for and selecting a suitable headhunter firm, there are four things to keep in mind:


  • The headhunter firm must have a thorough understanding of the position you’re looking to fill. 
  • Recruiting process
  • Time to find the right employees
  • The fee for the service

RECO has also published a separate essay about the considerations when hiring a headhunter company, so you may go over the first step in further detail.

3. Tips when working with a headhunter company to maximize efficiency

Both you and the headhunter companies have the same goal: finding the best candidate for the job. Here are some pointers to help you get started with headhunter firms.


Prepare the portraits of candidates that the company requires

When using a headhunter service, this is crucial. They do not know the scenario inside your organization simply because they are an outside element. As a result, you’ll need a list of open positions, as well as the required abilities and remuneration for each one. The specialists at the partner companies may advise you on what skills are appropriate for the current HR market conditions, as well as what you expect from the candidate’s performance.


Make a summary

To recruit candidates, a recruiting service provider will need a substantial quantity of information about issues surrounding the position, such as corporate structure or company culture. Prepare a summary like the one above to help recruiters understand exactly how they need to discover applicants.

You should choose a company that provides headhunter services that are specialized in your business field and have a long-term cooperation orientation to maximize the success of your collaboration. The more information a headhunter company has about your company, the more likely they are to discover the ideal applicant.

Typically, if you need to fill an IT staffing position, you should use a headhunter firm that specializes in IT staffing. This allows your organization to save time explaining staff requirements and abilities while also benefiting from the industry knowledge of the partner company. Some headhunter firms also offer in-depth consulting services to businesses in the manufacturing and service industries that are digitizing and expanding their IT departments. As a result, your company can better plan how to allocate resources.

Communication that is specific and open

It’s not only about helping a headhunter understand the requirements for the position you’re hiring for when you speak with them. Hiring professionals are familiar with your brand and goals, and they can even recommend qualified applicants who can help your company even if you aren’t actively looking for work.

In a continually understaffed market, keeping in touch with your recruitment partner and opening for exceptional applicants will pay off well. Instead of waiting for employees to face a people shortage, find a candidate as soon as he or she is ready.
