3 Reasons Why Banks and Financial Institutions Should Use Recruiters


Okay, let’s just get this out of the way first. If you’re a hiring manager, a human resources director, or even a talent acquisition superstar, you cringe at the thought of asking a recruiter to help you find top talent for your organization. You’re probably thinking “that’s my job! I don’t need some outside recruiter who doesn’t even work for our institution coming in and making me feel like I don’t know how to find the right people for my department!”

Well, I have good news for you, that’s not what I do. That’s not even the reason recruiters exist. I wanted to share with you three reasons why it’s helpful to YOU to use someone like me.

Reason 1: YOU’RE BUSY!

You and I both know your world doesn’t revolve around sifting through hundreds of resumes. No matter what title you hold, you weren’t hired solely to find and place talent in your organization. Nope, that’s what I do. So, while you’re going through your day putting out fires and making things happen to excel your own career, leave it to me to weed out the people that simply do NOT check off the boxes of who you’re looking for to add to your team.

Why would you waste the perfectly good productive hours of your day reading about a background of someone who is only qualified for underwater basket weaving when you’re looking for a 20+ year banking executive? I know you’ve seen those people apply for that exact job… I don’t get it either but leave it to me to save you the time and agony of having to deal with that headache.

Reason 2: I talk to people in your market daily

As someone who recruits for only banks and financial institutions, I have the advantage of diving deep into the candidate pool daily. Why is that? I talk to many qualified candidates every day who are both actively and passively looking to make a move. I know, you can do the same thing, right? What’s so special about me? Well, let me tell you. Part of the advantage that I have is that I get to talk to people in your competition that are producing and helping their current organization have a fantastic year! We both know that even if you’re having a good year financially, that doesn’t outweigh a great work-life balance and an organization that makes you feel like more than just a number. Those people want to move, and it could be to the spot that helps you bring on your top producer.

Reason 3: Stuff still gets done your way

We have a process here, sure, but part of my process is making sure that I support your process. You have an established timeline of who, what, when, where, and how. I get that and I’m not here to try to fix something that isn’t even broken in the first place. Ain’t nobody got time for that. I’m not here to tell you how to do your job or to make you feel inadequate. I’m simply here to link arms with you and help add value to your organization.

I just read that 80% of turn-over is reported to be from impulsive hiring decisions. I’m here to help your turn-over stay low and to ensure that your people aren’t getting burned out by filling in for open positions. Let me, an Executive Recruiter, help take a little bit of stress off your plate. It’s a win-win for you because I take my job seriously. I am not in the business of sticking a round peg in a square hole. I’m on your side and I am eager to partner with you today!
