  1. Agencies have jobs you won't find elsewhere

    Many companies choose recruitment agencies as their only method of sourcing new employees. This is because they would rather pay recruitment agencies to do the hard part of sifting through hundreds of CVs to put together a shortlist of candidates for them, as opposed to doing it themselves.

    Therefore, you're likely to hear about vacancies from recruiters that you haven't seen advertised elsewhere, despite watching every job site like a hawk.

  2. You'll get expert guidance from a professional

    When contacting an agency, you'll be allocated a recruiter who should know everything there is to know about the job market you're interested in.

    They'll be able to give you loads of information. This includes where the best jobs are that fit your profile, what particular employers are looking for, and even whether your experience and qualifications are up to scratch. If not, get working on developing your CV.

  3. Most recruiters only get paid when you get the job

    This means they'll do their very best to make sure you at least get an interview.

    In order to increase your chances of success, they'll often offer to improve your CV and coach you for interviews.

    They're just as keen for you to get the job as you are. Having that extra support is a great bonus in a competitive job market.
