There are many benefits of using a recruitment agency and it genuinely is the most effective way of finding your next role, but we have listed the key benefits below:

 

A Recruitment Consultant is in the know

Any good Recruitment Consultant will know more than you expect them to know about the industry. They talk construction all day long with candidates and managers and have a very good idea of what makes a great job. This knowledge of the industry offers you an advantage, as they know precisely what roles and companies would suit you based on your experience, knowledge and more importantly what you have discussed with them regarding your requirements.

 

This knowledge means that they won’t just show available job opportunities, they will offer job opportunities that will genuinely suit you, your needs and your requirements. This results in a far easier, more enjoyable job search and means you get the right result.

Opportunities that aren't advertised

Another great benefit is that due to the relationships built over many years with hiring managers and people within companies that are in the position to make hiring decisions, we can approach companies that you want to work for even if there isn’t a job advertised. This is will give you a huge benefit over candidates who are only using job boards, as these jobs being presented to you aren’t being advertised, therefor aren’t being applied for.

 

This is happening more frequently now due to the growing skills gap within the industry, meaning less competition for you, which can only be a good thing, right?

Save time

Searching and applying for jobs is a real drain on your time. Having to sift through lots of job adverts and working out which ones you like the look of. If you worked with a recruitment agency then you wouldn’t need to, as we would proactively search and have conversations on your behalf. No need to re-write your CV for every application and following up to make sire they received it, making it quicker and far less frustrating for you.

Better insight into the business

Any good Recruitment Consultant will know a lot about most companies within the construction industry. Instead of second guessing what a job advert means when it says ‘great career progression opportunities’ or ‘great development opportunities’ the Recruitment Consultant will be able to give you more valuable insight into the business.

 

This won’t just be about the job and what you’ll be doing, it will also include the company culture, personalities within the business, who you’ll be reporting in to and projects in the pipeline. This insight is valuable and will help you decide if you actually want to be put forward for the role or not, again saving you time and stress.
