Having been in business for over 30 years, we speak to a lot of candidates. We are often asked why candidates should go through us instead of applying directly. It's a question we love because it gives us a chance to talk to candidates about all the amazing things that we can do for them.

Firstly, their CV. The CV is the first impression you make to a potential employer. Here at Vanrath Recruitment we are a team of experienced recruiters. We know how to make a CV look awesome and sell a candidate in the best possible light.

Very often an employer will only have time to speak to a candidate that looks perfect on paper. This can mean that if you don't have everything the employer is looking for, you could miss out. Unless you use a recruiter of course. We are trusted by the employer and they will listen to us about why we have put this candidate forward and why we think they will be ideal for the vacant role.

One of the biggest benefits from going through a recruiter instead of just applying directly is that you'll hear back. When employers advertise a job role, they may get hundreds of applicants for it. They don't have the time to contact everyone that applied, so often they don't. However, a recruiter will let you know if your CV has gone through to the next stage. They will also get feedback from the employer for you too.
