Using Recruitment Agencies
Applying for Jobs through a Recruitment Agency
When applying for a position through a recruitment agent please be mindful that when a direct employer chooses to use their services they will have been given a very specific brief. Chances are they are going to be looking for someone who has done exactly what the job description is asking for. You need to demonstrate that you can do the job that you are applying for. But be careful… don't try to make the role fit if it doesn't - this happens a lot. This is why writing a good CV and tailoring your CV to the role advertised is important.
It is also fustrating when you do not hear back when you have applied for positions, we completely understand that but unfortunately with hundreds of applicants per day it is impossible for recruiters to contact everyone with a response.
A good recruitment consultant will have extensive knowledge of the sector they recruit in. We have an extensive network of contacts throughout the Health & Social Care Sector and we have been around for the last twelve years. If you need any advice we are always hear to help.
