Rob's Top 5 Tips - Recruitment Agencies
Agencies can be a very important part of your job search, providing more eyes and ears to find work for you. Here are some things to bear in mind:
- Shop around
Agencies specialise in different types of jobs. Use websites like agencycentral.co.uk, yell.com and even Google to find ones that cover your line of work and location.
- Make it personal
Find a local branch and a build a connection with them. Call directly or visit in person.
- Keep in touch
Phone your consultant regularly – at least once a week – to keep your name on their radar.
- Be clear what you want
Full-time, part-time, long-term, short-term, permanent or casual – agencies can cover all of these, so let them know exactly what you are looking for.
- Be flexible
A short-term or casual assignment could lead to a long-term job. Universal Credit is designed to make it easier to take shorter jobs these days, without having to sign off.
