1. Good recruitment consultants are professionals who recruit for a living. This has a great advantage to the candidate; they can totally support you with the full-cycle of the recruitment process.
  2. You won’t have to continually search for jobs; the recruitment consultant will contact you when the appropriate job come in. Approximately 80% of available jobs are never advertised; you access to more job opportunities.
  3. When sending your curriculum vitae directly to a company it can sometimes go into a black hole and could get overlooked. The recruitment consultant will have a good relationship with their clients, so they can pick up the phone directly to the decision maker, to discuss why you would be perfect for the role.
  4. The recruitment consultant can save you time by doing all the hard work for you, which goes with finding a new role; anything from sending your curriculum vitae, booking interviews and carrying out the final salary negotiations.
  5. When you attend an interview directly you will not be able to ask questions regarding the interview; i.e. what to wear and what sort of interview questions you may be asked. The recruitment consultant will have all the answers before your interview, so that you will have the upper hand to a direct candidate.
  6. If at final interview stage the role is between two candidates, one direct and one though the recruitment consultant, you will have the advantage; the recruiter will have the opportunity to discuss your skills and personality qualities in more detail, whilst the direct candidate will not.
  7. Using a recruitment consultant is free to the candidate.
