The Benefits of Using a Recruiter
8 November 2017
Perhaps this is your very first job search, or maybe you have been plugging away at it for months on end. Whatever your current position, if you are looking for work in the Manufacturing and Engineering sectors across Scotland, there’s a lot to be said for using a recruiter to help you with your search.
Here at HRC, our team of experienced and approachable recruiters have been in the industry for over forty years combined. We have great relationships with some of the biggest names in the market and are able to help thoroughly prepare you in terms of CV writing and job interview preparation.
Whether you are looking for full-time, part-time, contract or day rate work, we have a wealth of positions across the central belt and beyond. We are here to help create a perfect match between you and your potential employer. We don’t just put our candidates into any role for the sake of filling a vacancy.
Here are just some of the benefits of working with a recruiter to help amplify your job search:
Productive job search
You know the saying “two heads are better than one”? Well, the same applies to your job search. Recruiters, naturally, have an extensive network of contacts that usually make them the first to know about upcoming vacancies. Whilst you continue to search for your next (or first) job, they can help broaden your horizons.
Know what employers want
A good recruiter will always prepare you in great detail for an interview. They will know what an employer or hiring manager is looking for in a candidate and will help you create solid answers to any tricky questions that might get thrown your way. Their relationship with the employer will ensure you get the best information possible to help you ace your interview.
Find a culture fit
When you apply for a job, you don’t always know what you’re getting. Companies are always going to sell you on the positive. But what happens if you’re a bit shy and the workplace is always chatty and noisy? Wouldn’t you like to know the beforehand? A recruiter will get to know you and only ever place you in a working environment where you will be comfortable and able to flourish.
Negotiate a better deal
You might not feel like you are in a position to ask for a better salary or flexible working hours, but a recruiter will always try and get you the best deal possible. Make them aware of any requirements you would like to be included in your next position, and they will always try to ensure that these will be part of the contract. Recruiters are great at selling their candidates as “added value” to a business.
Helpful follow up
Once you are placed, we don’t just disappear. We want to know how you are settling in and if there is anything else we can help you with. We’ll also keep you in mind for any other positions that become available in the future that we think will enhance your career even further.
