Are There Benefits Of Using A Recruitment Agency To Find Jobs?

Posted: 20th May 2021

Are you wondering if a recruitment agency could help you find a job? Recruitment Agencies aim to bring the best talent and the best jobs together. Recruitment Specialist Emma Shahnavaz explains why working with an agency could benefit you…

So, you’re thinking of making your next career move but you don’t know where to start. Speaking with a specialised Recruitment Consultant can help take the pain out of the dreaded job hunt. Here, I take a look at just a few of the many benefits of using recruitment support in your search.

They’re free to job seekers

Recruitment Consultants are tasked with attracting top talent to their client’s businesses. They will go above and beyond to ensure they are able to match the right candidate to their client needs. In doing so, the Consultant provides a free service to the job seeker to best represent you to their client. This can be in the form of free CV writing, advice on the market, selling you into the client, advocating on your behalf – even negotiating you a higher salary!

It is in the Consultant’s best interest to make sure you are as prepared as possible for upcoming interviews with their clients. Therefore, they will dedicate time to run through interview preparations and help you to put your best foot forward.

Our clients are your future employer!

Recruiters are able to open up a large network of clients who are looking to secure fresh talent for their business. They are able to determine the right culture fit for the candidate and provide the candidate with a solid understanding of the business and what is needed to succeed there.

Some vacancies are listed exclusively with Agencies

Dependent on the relationship between the client and the Recruitment Consultant, some vacancies will only appear with the Recruitment Agency by way of exclusive or retained business. This means that the employer may not necessarily list the vacancy on their own website. Instead, they opt to let the Recruiter handle the entire process. Therefore, liaising with a Recruitment Consultant will give you exclusive access to jobs that may not have even hit the market yet.

Specialist Advice tailored to your industry

Recruitment Consultants are specialists within their fields and therefore can offer you expert industry advice on current trends within the market and within your specific sector. They will have forged strong relationships with employers within your field and will be able to sell you into their clients and arrange confidential discussions to explore your options.

So, whether you’re considering a move or are just looking to explore what’s out there, partnering with a reputable and trusted Recruitment Consultant can make the process seem less daunting and can provide you with valuable input.
