The sales job market is dynamic and continues to evolve every day, which is why the knowledge and insight of a recruiter can be especially useful during a job search. In the instance you are a specialist operating in a very niche industry, know people working in each organisation, understand their culture, management styles and working environments, then a DIY job search may serve you well. However, in the more likely case you are not, seeking the help of a specialist recruiter will be highly beneficial. Whether you are looking for that next step in your career, changing industry sectors or just seeking a change of scenery, a good recruiter will be able to explain the ins and outs of a benefits package, provide an insight into the company culture, what the line manager is like to work for and how to best prepare for an interview.
A not so obvious example of when a recruiter can really add value to your search would be while you are exploring your options internally. If you are up for a promotion, and you have hit all objectives defined in your PDP, this is a great time to get in touch with a recruiter to assess your options. Is your salary in line with the market rate and are the responsibilities similar to those of other companies? How does your employer's dynamic working policy compare to other organisations in the sector?
Conversations around salary benchmarking, bonuses, benefits and culture, regardless of whether or not you are looking to make an external move are very much welcomed. In fact some of the best relationships I have with my candidates have been built on an initial conversation where the expectations were set from the start - those professionals looking to move up or into new roles within their current organisation, but are also interested in assessing external options to keep their finger on the pulse and compare current opportunities.
Another example would be a recent graduate with great academics and multiple grad schemes offering fantastic career development opportunities. Speaking to a recruiter operating in a field where you want to work will give you an insight into the culture of the organisations, how many people leave after completing grad schemes and which organisations have the highest retention rates. While a recruiter might not be able to place you in a scheme, a good recruiter would encourage you to reach out as it builds relationships for the future.
