Why work with recruiters?

5 pros of working with recruiters to find you your next career!

Specialised Recruitment

The insight and knowledge that can be provided by specialist recruitment agencies can be second to none. If you’re looking into going into a specific industry or you’re a professional looking to switch jobs, getting in touch with a recruitment provider should be the first step you consider! 

Recruiters are experts in understanding work environments, workplace culture, and management styles, this can help you out in your job search, especially if you are new to an industry. A qualified recruitment agency can talk you through the ins and outs of a company’s culture, and what the management team is like, and give you valuable tips to prepare for the interview stage.

If you’re looking to find a job, it’s easy to assume that you can do it yourself. You may think that having a recruitment agency on your side can only be beneficial if the agency has a particular niche or an area of expertise in mind. But there are many reasons to work with a specialist recruiter, even if you have no idea what you want to do next. Visionary Recruitment has put together 5 key reasons why working with a recruiter should be your go-to move when seeking new career opportunities. 

1. It saves you massive amounts of time!

Ever spent hours and hours on job search websites looking for that dream role but nothing is catching your eye? Ever applied to hundreds of jobs but only heard back from a handful? Well, here at Visionary we understand how that can make you feel! Working with recruiters can save you your precious time and get you a result fast!

Recruiters typically will already have access to a large database of companies who are seeking candidates with your skill set and we’ll be able to match you with suitable employers quickly. As recruiters, we can also review your CV and give you guidance on cover letters for the role. In some instances, we can do this step entirely on your behalf!

No more time wasted hunched over your laptop in the late hours of the night applying to anything that vaguely matches what you’re looking for!

2. Your CV, your choice!

Working with recruiters like us gives you the full disclosure of who to go to, at the salary you request which is based on what’s in line with the current market and the location of the role.

Working with a recruiter such as Visionary Recruitment can help you determine things like if your current salary is in line with the market rate and similar to other companies in the industry or if you’re being underpaid. A dedicated recruiter can have conversations around salaries, bonuses, benefits, and company culture on your behalf. Because of our knowledge of our niches, we’ll know if what you’re being offered pay-wise fits in line with the sector.

3. More networking and interview opportunities!

Recruiters have a wealth of knowledge on what companies are looking for and where. We can use our connections to get you in front of the right people, which is why we here at Visionary suggest using a recruiter when first starting out.

Using a recruiter will give you more networking and interview opportunities, you are also saved on the recruiter’s database so that we can refer you to other companies and clients when they have an opening. This also links back to saving you time!

A great way to start is by reaching out to recruiters that specialise in your field, for example, we specialise in recruitment for the UK’s creative, digital, and marketing industries! By choosing a specialist recruiter, your skills can be connected with someone interested in hiring someone just like you!

4. Recruiters hold your hand through the entire process!

A recruiter will guide you throughout the entire process and hold your hand along the way by doing the heavy lifting. We’ll help you decide what jobs fit your skills and interests, figure out whether or not they’re worth applying for and even write your CV or cover letter if necessary!

Recruiters have your interests at heart, we WANT to see you placed in the perfect job! 

5. We understand the market!

The obvious benefit of using a recruiter is that we know the industry inside and out. We’re constantly in touch with hiring managers and know what they’re looking for and how much they’re willing to pay. We also have access to data on the current job market (like who’s resigning and why, and job trends) that can help you make better decisions about where you want to work.

Recruiters also attend industry events like conferences and award ceremonies, where we meet potential candidates face-to-face so we can get an idea of what skills are needed for certain jobs.
