When you’re looking for employment, one of the best things to do is to find a recruiter. Recruiters will help you to find the most appropriate jobs for your skills and experience. They will find current vacancies that match your skillset and arrange interviews. First, however, you need to find a recruiter that’s a good match for you.

How to find a recruiter

Finding a recruiter to match your skills is an important part of improving your career. Firstly, you could carry out some internet research to see what recruiters are out there. This can be done based on your geographical location and on the types of work you want to do. Google searches such as ‘recruiters south east England’ or ‘recruiters construction’ are a good starting place.

Once you’ve started your research, you may find that you need to further narrow down your search. If you’re searching for south east England and the scope is too wide, perhaps try using your town or county in your searches. The same applies to your specialist industry. If recruiters construction is too broad, perhaps try using the specific jobs within construction that you’re searching for such as groundwork, civil engineering, bricklaying etc.

You can learn a lot about the employment possibilities through online searches. During your research, you will probably also discover that it’s a good idea to work with a recruiter that specializes in your industry.

Benefits of working with a specialist recruiter

Working with a specialist recruiter is an excellent way to find the best vacancies within your specific area. Specialist recruiters have years of experience and will have contracts across your chosen sector. This will enable them to provide you with the best chance of securing your next role.

Specialist recruiters will also place more of an emphasis on their clients. This means that you will receive a bespoke service to match your requirements. Expert industry recruiters often act as the connection between large scale project managers and company owners and skilled workers. Once you’ve signed up with a specialist recruiter, it’s likely that you’ll get repeat contracts from them, and your CV will be provided for other suitable vacancies.
