A recruitment agency, otherwise known as an employment agency, is an organisation that works to bridge the gap between the employer and employee. They are tasked by employers to find candidates for job openings, who best suit their requirements. Consultants, who work for recruitment agencies, look after the job-seeking process from start to finish. This includes sourcing new opportunities, finding and reaching out to suitable candidates, lending their advice on CVs, and assisting with interview preparation, feedback and aftercare calls.

When scrolling through job sites, sometimes it can be hard to pick out which role best suits you. Maybe there are too many to choose from, or perhaps there are none at all that piques your interest.

Recruitment agencies have access to a huge range of job opportunities that sometimes may not be publicly available to you.

After registering with an employment agency, you will receive initial contact from a consultant. Their job is to find out what kind of role you are looking for as well as understand your experience, skill set and areas of expertise.

Following this, your consultant will unlock and present you with a range of opportunities that best match your requirements. By providing you with relevant jobs, you can wave goodbye to the endless scrolling on job sites, saving you time and resources.
