A recruitment agency helps job seekers find the kind of positions they are looking for that meet their education and skills, and they help businesses fill vacant positions, whether that is short-term or full-time. A recruitment agency will work on behalf of both doing all the hard work of screening and such to ensure both the employee and the employer are happy. All kinds of people might decide to use an agency of recruitment as a service, from the new and inexperienced to the more experienced, in all kinds of roles. Job seekers can have the best placements and job matches thanks to the expertise of the recruitment agency, and save a lot of time and money too.

Services and benefits for job seekers joining a recruitment agency
Sometimes when you are job hunting some ads are not as specific as you would like. You end up applying for jobs that are not what you expect or want, and possibly missing out on something that might have been great! It is physically tiring and costs money too with all the copies of CVs you send in, the walking and travelling to interviews all of which you can have in one place with a recruitment consultant at an agency. The good agencies have great clients and links to both international and local businesses and offer opportunities you might not have found yourself.
How does a job seeker join?
- A job seeker indicates their interest to the recruitment agency by uploading their CV - In today’s modern times the days where your only approach was to hit the high street and walk in with your CV are over. You can upload your CV to an agency online and likely fill in a profile and answer some questions. If any appropriate jobs become available you are then contacted by the agency as long as your qualifications and skills match.
- A job seeker might visit an agency to apply for specific jobs - If there is a specific job the agency has posted about or there is an urgent need for a job then you can visit in person or call directly. They offer recruitment as a service and will forward your CV if they think you are a good fit.
- Enjoy access to a large network of jobs - The wonderful thing about an agency is the network they are connected to. A lot of job seekers do not have that kind of professional networking opportunities. It means when there is a job open, the agency will hear of that before the public are made aware. You get ahead of all the other people wanting that job that have not joined a top agency.
- Enjoy feedback that makes you better at job seeking - A recruitment consultant can also offer you feedback to help you with future job hunting. How did you do in the interview, what else could you do to better prepare, are there skills you should work on while you are looking?
