Good recruitment consultants don't just email off your resume to prospective employers. They have worked on building relationships with hiring managers, who in turn trust their opinion. A recruitment consultant will 'sell' you into a company, so that a manager can't wait to read your resume when it does eventually arrive in their inbox. A recommendation from a consultant will put your resume on the top of the pile, while a typical emailed application might just disappear among the masses.

Recruitment consultants are in the business of knowing. They recognise specifics about upcoming opportunities. For example; they may have just interviewed a CEO who has resigned, which will shift the focus of the entire company. A consultant is always networking, and as such they learn about upcoming projects. They recognise seasonal shifts and prepare for them well in advance. And what about all of those urgent roles that aren't advertised? You can bet a recruitment consultant is sourcing for these openings long before the company even knows they have a vacancy.
