5 Reasons You Need a Staffing Agency

As a leading hospitality staffing agency, Platinum understands that recruiting the right people to suit your business doesn’t always happen overnight. Neither is it straightforward.

If you’re looking for efficient, reliable staff, we bring good news. They exist, right here, at Platinum. We’ve put together a list of reasons why using a staffing agency is beneficial for your business.

A Staffing Agency with Experienced Candidates

At Platinum, we have an extensive database of potential candidates. This gives us quick access to pre-screened candidates with years of experience in their field. In turn, you can find candidates who are the right fit for your business fast.

We’re able to uncover hard-to-find talent that you may not have considered before and even have a dedicated in-house marketing team for candidate attraction. This means, not only do each of our recruiters have access to a wide variety of candidates online, but it also allows our recruiters to focus solely on our client’s individual needs.

Staffing Agency Pricing

Unlike most traditional agencies, we factor in the cost of national insurance and pension contribution, holiday and sick pay, and other costs that you would incur when hiring an employee, ensuring that our model is as cost-effective for your operations as possible.

Our rate card allows our clients to work flexibly throughout the year, some requesting staff members months in advance, and others needing relief assistance the same day.

Trial Before You Buy

Looking for a permanent placement but can’t find the right fit? A candidate may look good on paper but might prove to be ill-suited for the job when they start.

By trialling a potential hire first, you can avoid making a bad hiring decision and ensure you find the right person for the job. Over 50% of the placements we made in 2022 were temp to perm placements!

Flexible Staffing at its Best

It’s murky, unknown times for hospitality right now. We know that traditional holidays and seasons bring more clientele, but what do you do in the down times? Hiring the team members you need when you need them, is the perfect solution for the current climate.

We take care of recruitment, payroll, pensions and holiday pay so that you can relax and focus on other tasks. And, did we mention, we’re open on the weekends for any last-minute cover you need?
