Job hunting can be a frustrating experience, particularly when applications aren't producing responses and you seemingly aren't making any headway in your employment search.

Having a designated recruitment agent assigned to fight your corner can be a great form of support in your quest for employment, acting as a coach as well as a means to an end.

A personal contact capable of pointing you in the right direction and providing employer insight can be invaluable, particularly when it comes to tailoring applications.

Recruitment agencies can often be industry-specific, with jobs targeted at a specific job sector or specialism (such as science).

Approaching such an agency can be a smart move as those that work there will naturally come equipped with existing knowledge of the industry and therefore detailed knowledge of the roles.

This can translate into clarity of what is expected and informed insight into the company which, in turn, gives you the upper hand in the application process
