Established relationships with clients

Majority of recruiters have spent time building relationships with the individuals who are going to recruit you. They have a much better chance of getting hold of them and getting their attention. Recruiters know and understand how the firm works, how Hiring Managers like to be contacted, and have a deeper understanding of what they're looking for.

They already have a database of clients, which, as a candidate, you may not have access to.

We've done the networking and you can take advantage of this.

They put you forward

It's so important for you to meet the recruiter you're working with, ideally, face to face. By doing this they are able to speak to clients about you with confidence as well as providing an opportunity to understand exactly what you're looking for in your next role.

It also allows the recruiter to know how you would come across in an interview scenario, and whether you would need more guidance, which they can help with. The better they know you, the better they can portray your skills to the client. If you think about it, it's free support as you don't pay their fees.

You will not get lost in an inbox

How often do you receive a response when you apply directly? It is likely the Recruiting Manager or HR get their inboxes flooded with applicants so it is quite likely that you will get lost in all those emails.

If you're good for the role and the recruiter knows it, they will make sure that they get through to the client for you. We do the chasing for you, which you may not necessarily be able to do as an applicant.
