5 Great Reasons to Work with a Recruitment Agency

Mar 3, 2023

Is looking for a new job stressing you out? Consider working with a staffing agency.

Recruiters are knowledgeable, resourceful and can connect you to several employers currently hiring in your area. And they can help alleviate some of that pressure you’re feeling.

Still not sold?

Here are 5 great reasons to consider partnering with a recruitment agency:

  1. Agencies are well-connected.

Many recruitment agencies work with companies across a vast range of industries, like manufacturing, administrative, and technical, just to name a few. They also have an “in” with companies that may not normally be easily accessible to job seekers. Some companies only partner with staffing agencies for hiring, so partnering with one may be your only option for getting in front of certain hiring managers.

  1. A recruitment agency can help you find the right fit.

When you work with an agency, you have more opportunities available to you than you would find on your own. You can work in a field that you’ve maybe had interest in but have never had an opportunity to try. This will allow you to see what types of roles or industries work best for you.

  1. Recruitment agencies are a valuable resource.

Recruiters often offer CV advice and can prepare you for interviews. Recruiters want you to be successful and will give you the information and tips you need to nail your interview. Some agencies also offer skills assessments. These tests measure your proficiency in a variety of areas – computer programs, typing, industrial skills – which can make you a more desirable candidate to hiring managers.

  1. Recruitment agencies can help you grow.

Agencies can not only keep you steadily employed, they can also help you gain valuable skills for you to use in the future. After all, every job you take on helps you build your CV. In addition, you also have the chance to grow your professional network. Wherever you end up working, you will make connections that you can later use as a reference or connection for future use. It’s a win-win situation.

  1. You have control when working with recruitment agencies.

You have the option to pick employment opportunities that align with what you’re looking for long term. And you can choose between temporary, temp-to-perm and permanent roles as well. If you don’t think a position is right for you, or if you think it won’t give you valuable skills for the future, say no. You’re not required to say yes to every offer – and that’s OK! Recruiters understand that candidates want to find the right fit.

Partnering with a staffing agency while seeking new job opportunities can really make a difference.
