5 Reasons Why You Should Use a Recruiter

Here at Journey Recruitment,  we work hard to give our candidates the best possible ‘agency’ experience.  We have recently won an award from the Thames Valley Chamber of Commerce for our Excellence in Customer Service and we believe that a great recruiter is vital when you are looking for a new job.  In a market where candidates are often encouraged to apply directly for roles, here are 5 reasons why you should use a recruiter and to help you secure your dream role!


5 Reasons Why You Should Use a Recruiter

     1. Bringing the roles to you.

We take the stress out of searching for new positions. Once we have spoken to you and truly understand the kind of role you are looking for, we can send you any relevant roles that may suit your skills and experience straight to your inbox. We also advertise all of our roles on our website so do keep an eye out for opportunities and get in touch with us when you see one that matches your skillset.


     2. CV drafting.

We help you tailor your CV to bring out your strengths and highlight the skills required for the position that you are applying for.  Due to our longstanding relationships with a vast number of our clients, we know exactly what they are looking for and what they will want to see on your CV when it hits their desks.  This ensures that you are presented in the best possible light and increases your chances of securing that interview! We also are great at spotting any spelling errors or typos, so can help you fix these so that a small mistake doesn’t hinder your chances of success!


   3. Interview preparation.

We are here to help support you before and after your interview.  We will explain what format the interview will take and tell you about who you are meeting as well as brief you on possible questions that are usually asked by that specific client.  You will feel prepared and understand the culture of the organisation before you meet with them.  Why not head over to our Tik Tok page for some hints and tips for standing out at interview and answering some of those trickier questions!


  4. Salary negotiation and offer management

We will advise you what the role is likely to pay and if offered a position we would negotiate/manage your offer on your behalf to ensure that you secure the best salary. This can be daunting and uncomfortable to do directly but we are experts in securing you the best possible overall package.


  5. Diary management.

Arranging interviews can be tricky, especially when you are currently working or have multiple applications.  At Journey Recruitment we can take all the stress out of the process and make sure we know what your availability is in good time to secure your interviews and help you manage the process effectively and efficiently.


We look forward to working with you so why not head over to our careers page now and start looking for that dream role.  We are ready to help you with every step of your Journey!
