External recruitment is the process of recruiting suitable candidates who have the skills and experience who have not worked with the company previously. Most often, this includes advertisements in newspaper, magazines, online advertisements and most recently, recruitment firms. Executive recruiters may be more beneficial for your company as some can focus on a specific sector, especially if that sector is where you company sits. Using an executive recruiter can bring other benefits as well:

As most agencies work on commission, which means they will put anyone forward for an interview, using an executive recruiter will mean that you get the best talent available. They may have a pool of talented and experienced candidates that will suit the position you are advertising for. They will ensure that you are provided with the most efficient employee.
-They manage the applications

Hiring a recruitment agency will manage these applications and through an efficient screening process, only provide you with the candidates that they feel are suitable for the position. It will give you time to manage your business.
As the old saying goes “You get what you pay for” and hiring an executive recruitment agency will ensure that they seek out the best talent that guarantees will work out. An excellent candidate will pay for themselves and be worth the time and money spent on hiring a recruitment agency.
Using any external recruitment agency will bring in a fresh pair of eyes for your company. As they aim to find someone with excellent skills and experience, they may bring in new ideas and a fresh perspective that will enhance any project.
-Excellent marketing strategies
If you are using traditional means of advertising for a position, you may not be getting the attention that you want.

You will want someone who can work with others, with goal to exceed their own ambitions.
