Recruiters, Don’t Be Afraid to Admit It: You Know More Than Your Clients

You work all day with multiple clients in the same space; you know the industry inside and out. You fill roles for people you respect and learn from — and they have a lot to learn from you in return.

What are we talking about here? Specifically, global hiring. 

It’s 2022, and the employment market is still adjusting to a pandemic that has changed working styles, candidate expectations, and remote offerings. 

You’ve seen the impact of the Great Resignation first-hand. You’ve been on the phone with candidates who want a better work-life balance. You know where the best talent lives (spoiler, it’s not just the people who live in a 45-minute radius of your client’s office). In other words: you’ve got your finger on the pulse. Surely your clients should benefit from that.

Recruiters are natural thought leaders, especially when it comes to hiring trends. While the phrase “thought leader” might make you roll your eyes and think of a guy in AirPods talking at you with his phone propped up on his car dashboard, the fact remains you have the unique knowledge your clients need.

Speaking from experience

Obviously, I have a vested interest in saying this to you. I head up Talent Partnerships for a B2B solutions company that advocates for global working. But before I did this, I was a recruiter just like you. And after years of Friday-night, deal-closing calls, tricky clients, demanding candidates, and rollercoaster-worthy highs, I realized I had the skills to begin strategizing with recruitment firms to help support their clients to navigate this new world of work.

At Omnipresent, we drink our own champagne. We’re a fully remote company that believes in giving people the freedom to choose where they want to live in the world and how they structure their day. 

There’s a simple reason for that: Omnipresent knows the world isn’t changing, it’s already changed — and we want to retain excellent staff. 

Your most knowledgeable product manager might be in Guatemala. Your best comms manager might be in South Africa. Your most talented designer might be moored on a boat off the North Sea in the Outer Hebrides — and you only become truly globally competitive when you’re able to fish from a pool of global candidates.

Convincing your clients

I know it’s a tough sell to get your clients to think outside of the box — believe me, I’ve done it. But Omnipresent takes the pain out of global hiring. 

We handle payroll, taxes, and visa legalities so your clients can hire wherever they need to. And if you partner with us, you open up multiple new markets to your clients without having to deal with any extra admin on your end. Simply tell your clients you have a trusted partner who can help them expand their business across the world, and we’ll do the rest.

How much quicker would you fill that tricky Head of Product role on your desk right now if your client could hire in 50 countries instead of just one?

Proactively offering this kind of flexibility and service makes you look good. It’s also about to become an essential tool. In fact, I’d say if you’re not pushing your clients to take the lead in global working, you aren’t doing your job right.
