The difference between IT recruitment and IT secondment

When you, as a manager, are looking for a specialist for your department, you can find and deploy them in various ways. How you do this depends on your needs. IT recruitment and IT secondment can help you with this. In this blog, we explain what best suits your search.

What is IT recruitment?

With IT recruitment, you outsource the entire recruitment and selection process to an external agency. The agency will look for professionals who match your wishes and needs. For this, they select the most suitable professionals, and the client can then make a choice from this. When the client and the professional are both enthusiastic and agree to each other’s conditions, the professional will be employed by the client.

Why choose IT recruitment?

IT recruitment has many advantages for both clients and professionals. Finding new staff can be quite a search and can cost you as a client a lot of time, work, and money. Even for a professional, it can be quite a task to find the right employer.

Outsourcing the entire process can be a good solution to make this process easier. After all, a specialized agency has the knowledge, experience, and network to quickly find a suitable professional for a client. They know how to follow the right paths to achieve quick results. In a market where there is a lot of scarcity, such as the IT sector, this can save a lot of time and costs.

What is IT secondment?

With IT secondment, a client temporarily hires professionals from a secondment agency. The duration of the deployment depends on the duration of the project on which the specialist is working. During this period, the professional remains employed by the IT secondment agency.

Why choose IT secondment?

Secondment has many advantages. One of the most important is that you quickly acquire your specific knowledge by hiring professionals. These specialists are often available at short notice and can provide support and resolve outstanding issues. This way, your IT department will not come under pressure.
