Why to use a manpower supply agency

If you’re reading this, you’re most likely a decision-maker in the energy industry looking for different ways to recruit new talent for your company. At some point, the thought of using a manpower supply agency probably came across your mind and here you are, reading about what it’s like to outsource the services of a manpower recruitment company. But what does it mean? And how do you choose the right manpower supply agency? We’ll cover and answer all these questions in this article, and we’ll also provide you with some useful information to learn more about this topic.

What does using a manpower supply agency entail?

No matter the size of a company, it is often a struggle for companies and organisations to attract the right applicants who are both experienced and qualified for a certain position. Even companies like Google or Apple utilize the services of recruitment companies when it comes to very skills-specific positions that they are after. In order to access a large pool of suitable candidates, it could cost you tens of thousands dollars to pay for the recruitment software such as LinkedIn Recruiter. Then, add the training costs and the time it will take until you or your employees master the software to an acceptable level, and you’re looking at a very large figure that doesn’t make sense financially. That’s when manpower supply companies like MAC Projects come in. We not only look for qualified candidates that match the job requirements, but we also take care of all the technicalities and legalities that automatically come with the recruitment process such as candidate pre-qualifying, market mapping, visa checks, or payroll solutions, to name a few. If we wanted to be specific, the services would be as follows:



  • Site selection
  • Feasibility Studies
  • System Studies
  • Conceptual Designs
  • Cost Estimates
  • Permitting Support Design Criteria
  • Interconnection Services
  • Independent Engineering and due diligence

Now you can probably see how a company that gets overloaded with tasks on a random basis would benefit from outsourcing the whole hiring process to a company that’s professional and has years of experience doing this. It will save a lot of time and energy to them, especially if they have no one who deals with hiring and recruiting on their team.


How to choose the right manpower supply agency

It may be that you already know you will be using a manpower recruitment company to help you with finding the right candidates, but you don’t know HOW to choose the right company. After all, if they don’t understand what your company’s goals, missions and culture are, how will they make sure the collaboration is successful? That’s why now may be the right time to consider what your priorities and non-negotiables are, what you expect from the company, and what is not essential. Maybe you’d prefer to work with a company that has a vast experience in the sector in which you’re hiring? Or perhaps your preferences lay around the company’s reputation and client reviews? Whatever your requirements on the recruitment company are, make sure you understand why they are important and stick to them.

To learn more about the company, you can also consider to hop on a video call with them and ask them anything that is important to you.
