How do recruitment agencies work?

By Anush Pervez

Finding a job isn’t always an easy process.


So you’re looking for a job, that may be a part-time role, full-time, permanent or temporary or anything else in between. Sometimes no matter how hard you try; you can’t find a role that is well suited to you. This is where recruitment agencies come into play. A recruitment agency will act as the middleman between a company that is hiring and someone like yourself, who is looking for a job. The job of recruitment agencies is to find someone who is most suitable for the vacancy.

Recruitment agency process.


When companies are looking to employ new staff members, they may not have the time or resources to hire directly. When this is the case, they will turn to a recruitment agency with a job description and will ask the agency to find ideal candidates for them.


Upon receiving the job description, recruitment agencies will then sift through their candidate pool and put forward candidates who seem to be an ideal fit for the role.

When agencies receive the green light from the company, they can then begin to initiate the interview process.


How to get involved.


Recruitment agencies are skilled at what they do. They know exactly what the employer and future employee wants. Here at the Recruitment Crowd, we even go as far as helping you prepare for your interview! With this in mind, it’s a given that you’d want to get involved.


Upon contacting recruitment agencies, they will arrange either a phone call or face-to face interview with you, going into detail about your career goals, salary expectations and your qualifications. They’ll also ask for in depth detail surrounding your CV, so make sure that all information provided is accurate.


What happens next?


Once your CV is on the system, recruitment agencies will contact you if they find a suitable role and will ask your permission before putting your CV forward. Make sure you get in touch with the recruitment agencies every few weeks to ensure you stay on their radar and to keep up to date on any current vacancies.


What happens when you secure a job?

Once you’ve secured a job (well done you), the role of the recruitment agency doesn’t stop there. They’ll handle all of the paperwork and other formalities. They can even negotiate your salary for you. What a dream!
