Job hunting can be a slog. A stressful, frustrating, worrisome slog that can make you feel like you are getting nowhere and everywhere, all at the same time. For every job that's on a jobs board, there are at least a hundred people vying for that role with impressive CVs and exquisitely written cover letters to get the employers attention. Job hunting can feel exhausting, so rather than choose to put the work in and depress yourself getting nowhere, why not consider using a recruitment agency to give you a hand?

Recruitment agencies are always on the lookout for strong, determined candidates that are skilled and ready to take on a new challenge. Recruitment agencies are in the ear of employers, which means that you are far more likely to get a 'yes' to your job application when you go through an agency, than if you did it all by yourself. That's not to say that you're rubbish at job hunting, but if an employer has put their trust in a recruitment agency to find them the right candidate, you can bet that the agency will vet their candidates carefully before putting any forward.

This is a massive advantage for you as a job seeker, because you will know that your recruitment agent is going to talk you up. It's all going to be about you, your skills, what you can offer to the employer and it's usually all done over the phone, so they're going to hear the enthusiasm that's all for you.

Asking the right questions will help to ensure a technical and cultural fit. A high percentage of employers value candidates who will complement the existing workforce over the best technical skillset. Similarly, candidates are more committed and motivated when they identify with their company. For example, at Proclinical, our consultants ask candidates questions about their ideal company culture, pay and benefits, preferred location and willingness to relocate to ensure that the company will meet their personal needs. Not knowing these important details from the outset can cause difficulties and delays further down the recruitment process.

The process of gathering information is also very useful for when recruiters are trying to manage expectations. This involves things like giving clients a realistic time to hire, briefing candidates on what to expect from the recruitment/interview process and handling notice periods.
