Working closely with an experienced recruitment agency that will take the time to assess your skills, experience, characteristics, and unique requirements, can be hugely advantageous to job seekers because they have the following skills and insights:

Expert market knowledge

The recruitment market for your specialism is constantly changing and navigating it on your own, especially when you have been off the job market for a few years, can be challenging. A recruiter will be up to date with current market trends, industry knowledge and will work with you to establish what path to follow if you are unsure or looking for a new direction.

Deep networks

You will gain instant access to more job opportunities as recruiters have vast networks they can tap into to find you your perfect role. It's no secret that not all vacancies are advertised on job boards or LinkedIn, with some businesses relying strictly on third-party sourcing agencies to find candidates.

You will also be able to network on a larger scale, as once the recruiter has hold of your CV and they consider you a good fit for some of their clients, rest-assured you will get in front of the right people at the right time, enhancing your likelihood of securing a great role in no time.

Time saving

When entering the job market, many find the task of searching through job boards for suitable vacancies fairly time-consuming and at points, frustrating. When you partner with a recruiter, they will already know about most of the vacancies in your sector and will know exactly where to look based on your skills and experience.

This saves you a massive amount of time, allowing you to both focus on your current role and properly prepare and engage with the new opportunities you do want to pursue.
