Staffing firms are being hired to fill excess jobs that HR teams can’t fill internally either due to overall challenging conditions or lack of internal recruiting time and resources, especially for these jobs with niche skillsets.

WANTED Technologies (TSX-V: WAN), a leading provider of real-time market intelligence and analytics for staffing and workforce strategies, released the results of a study on staffing firm hiring. Their research shows that nursing and IT jobs are those most likely to require the support of third-party recruiting agencies to be filled. By analyzing jobs posted online specifically by staffing firms and the increase or decrease in market demand, WANTED is able to determine the occupations that employers are most likely to bring on an external staffing specialist to fill. This research can be used by both corporate recruiters and staffing firms to create actionable talent sourcing strategies.

“Due to hiring growth and more competition to find and attract the best talent, companies in certain industries are facing increasingly difficult recruiting conditions,” said Meredith Amdur, President and CEO of WANTED Technologies. “Staffing firms are being hired to fill excess jobs that HR teams can’t fill internally either due to overall challenging conditions or lack of internal recruiting time and resources, especially for these jobs with niche skillsets,” commented Amdur.

All of the jobs identified as high volume for staffing agencies experienced general year-over-year growth in employment. The top occupations that employers are likely to hire a staffing firm are registered nurses, application software developers, and web developers. Staffing agencies recruited for 25% more registered nurses in 2014 than in prior years. The growth in healthcare can be attributed to healthcare legislature in the US and increased availability of medical care. IT positions accounted for 70% of occupations on this list. IT hiring will continue to grow as companies realize the potential that software has to increase productivity and customer sales.

Based on this data, recruiters will likely find it beneficial to go straight to a staffing firm when these types of positions open. Employers may be able to reduce the time-to-fill and cost-per-hire by enlisting a third party agency that specializes in these areas and has the industry-specific resources to connect with qualified candidates.

The full set of data on hiring demand and talent supply is available through WANTED’s industry-leading platform, WANTED Analytics. Users at staffing firms subscribe to Analytics to find potential clients, provide data to shape recruiting strategies, and advise their clients on how to fill job openings faster.
