Finding a job can be tedious, frustrating, and downright difficult. No matter what stage you’re at in your life and career, a helping hand never goes a miss. Therefore, many people consider enlisting the help of a recruitment agency such as Stafffinders when looking for a new job. Not only can we provide the support and advice you might need, we can enable you with access to jobs you likely wouldn’t be able to find on your own. Not convinced…? Let’s cover the basics:
What is a recruitment agency?
First things first… what are recruitment agencies and what is their purpose? Recruitment agencies are companies that ultimately act as the ‘middle man’ between jobseekers and employers. In short, recruitment agencies will track down talent and source the ideal candidates on behalf of another company.
How does using a recruitment agency benefit the jobseeker?
Some jobseekers might be reluctant to put the future of their career in the hands of someone else. However, enlisting the help of a recruitment agency like us could be beneficial to not only your job search, but to you as a whole! A problem shared is a problem halved after all, so entrusting one of our expert recruiters to help you really could take some of the pressure off as you navigate your way to your next role.
Do I have to pay to use a recruitment agency?
Absolutely not! Recruitment agencies receive their fee from the company they are employing on the behalf of. An individual jobseeker should never be charged for using the services of a recruiter, so Stafffinders would never charge you, as a candidate, for registering with us.
What if I see a role myself that I want to apply for?
If you come across a role that your recruiter has not yet found for you, there is nothing stopping you from applying. You aren’t tied to our services; however, you shouldn’t cast them aside completely. It is important to remember that we will have access to roles that will not be publicly advertised as our recruiters have a wide range of contacts.
What else can a recruiter do for me?
As well as helping you find your dream role, recruiters can provide you with career advice ranging from how to format your CV to how to dress for an interview. We have insider knowledge about the companies we recruit for, meaning it’s likely you’ll get some hints and tips before an interview.
A recruiter really can take some of the pressure off when you’re looking for a job, and with no payment required – what have you got to lose? It could even lead to you finding your dream job.
