A good recruiter will be an expert in your industry. This allows them to understand the right types of roles and career path for you - they can provide new perspectives on your career goals that you may not have even considered previously.

Most recruitment agencies will have built their business on the skills and experiences of their recruiters within your specialism. So the feedback and guidance of a skilled recruiter could be instrumental in your next career move.

Developing and updating a CV can be one of the toughest challenges that many job-seekers face. If you simply seek advice from online CV templates, you run the risk of not standing out from your competition.

An experienced recruiter understands exactly what an employer is looking for. They can help craft a tailored CV that resonates with prospective employers and helps you stand out from your competitors.

When it comes to successful interviews, preparation is key!

A recruiter will go through the job description with you and discuss competencies and experience. They can even provide mock interviews and practice questions if you're feeling particularly nervous.

This will help you feel calm and prepared for any questions you may face. And will also help you to consider questions you can ask the interviewer.

If you are successful in your interviews, a recruitment agency can also provide a SWOT analysis of multiple job offers to make sure you decide on the best opportunity for you.

Recruiters can provide salary benchmarking advice with realistic expectations for your new salary. And even after you have received a job offer - they can help you negotiate the salary and wider package.

An experienced recruitment consultant can professionally mentor you and help build a roadmap for your career. This can help you to stay in control and give you the confidence to have those difficult yet important conversations at work.
