Many professionals looking for a new job will not want to approach companies directly for fear of losing confidentiality and exposing themselves as someone who is not dedicated to their current employer. By using a third party your anonymity is preserved until the time is right to reveal your identity. It is also a practical step if you are in a senior position as executive jobs are not always made public and it can be difficult to hear about them if you are not working with a recruiter. Recruiters have contacts in industries and at companies that you might not even be aware of. They can help market your CV to the right people and provide you with additional exposure to potential employers.

Recruiters spend a large part of their day speaking with decision makers in the market. A good recruiter is someone who is able to not only assess your key competencies and skills, but find an organisation where you will also fit in culturally. This is something that you would not necessarily know without "insider contacts", as interviews can often create a false environment which is not indicative of the day to day working environment of the organisation.

A recruitment consultant acts as an objective third party between you and your prospective employer, and eliminates any awkwardness you may feel about discussing salaries, benefits and career progression with a stranger.

Many organisations are not openly recruiting at present - if an organisation has undergone a redundancy programme where they have had to let a number of their staff go, it is often inappropriate to then be advertising for new positions. Recruitment consultants are often given the 'heads-up' by their clients who will tell them that even though they are not officially recruiting, they would like to see strong CVs for a particular business area.
