5 Questions To Ask Your Recruitment Agency (and some answers)

1.

Are you legal? Yes. At GEKO Consulting we are fully licensed by the Belgian authorities. It is a legal requirement. You can’t open a restaurant without a health and safety certificate, and you can’t open a recruitment agency without getting your paperwork in order.

2.

Are you insured? Yes we are– massively in fact: up to 2.5m EUR per claim. Imagine your consultant spills a coffee on your server, causing hundreds of thousands of lost revenue and extra work. The odd agency might try to save money by not having appropriate cover on their insurance policy. We don’t, and our insurance claim will be covered because we operate legally (see point 1.)

3.

Are you financially healthy? Yes. We invested 110.000 Euros of paid-up capital into securing GEKO’s financial health. Do you really want to work with anybody who won’t put their money where they mouth is? Ask your agency how much paid-up capital they have in their company.

4.

Do you have a local presence? Yes. Working over the telephone isn’t enough. We’re here, onsite, and speak all the languages you need covering. Tell your UK-based agency you need an urgent meeting and see what their reaction is.

5.

Do you screen your candidates? Yes. Thoroughly, with technical skills testing for every technical consultant we send to you. You get a copy of the test results as soon as they’re available.

Skills Testing 2010 The following hard-skills tests are available through GEKO Consulting for all consultants proposed for contract assignments. The tests will take place once preliminary screening has been undertaken, and only successful applicants will then be submitted to our clients. This systematic and qualitative approach to candidate screening ensures that only suitably qualified consultants will work on your projects, and saves you the time and money involved in performing your own technical testing.
