A recruitment agency is a business that is hired by companies and organisations to find suitable employees.

Employers outsource recruitment because it takes a lot of resources and not everyone has the expertise to find and recruit the best talent themselves.

By paying recruitment specialists, employers save time and money because their existing employees can focus on their core jobs, rather than spending time recruiting.

Additionally, specialist agencies are experts in their industries and have access to a pool of talented candidates. Therefore, by using an agency, a company can increase their chances of finding the best talent to fill their vacancies.

When an employer commissions a recruitment agency to fill a vacancy, the recruitment agency will advertise that role on their own website and any job board of their choosing. Employers may also commission more than one agency to fill the same role.

Be aware that recruitment agencies will withhold employer names to prevent candidates applying directly to the employer. This is because the recruitment agency only receives their fee if one of the candidates they found ends up getting hired. Not knowing the employer name can be frustrating for candidates, but it's accepted practice in the UK employment industry.

Employees who work for recruitment agencies are called recruitment consultants. Their job is to build relationships with employers so they will be commissioned to fill their vacancies, and also connect with job seekers, so they have a pool of talent from which to find suitable candidates. This is how they make their money.

It's important to remember that recruitment consultants only get paid when they fill vacancies. So, they'll only engage with you if they can see that you're highly employable with lots of great skills or excellent potential.

Recruitment consultants are not career coaches, so you shouldn't expect them to do all the hard work. They are experienced professionals who can advise on things like optimising your CV, however they are not there to make major changes or help you plot your career path.

ou'll make a good impression if you write your best possible CV before registering with a recruitment agency. Being as clear as possible about what jobs you want will help the agency know which jobs to put you forward for.

Do your research before choosing an agency to register with. Like with all things in life, there are some great recruitment agencies and some that don't perform as well. Most agencies recruit just in their local area, but there are a small number of national recruitment agencies recruiting across the whole of the UK.
