By Andy Taylor

So, you’ve read about why you should you use recruitment agencies Leeds and now it’s time to approach one. Read our 3 top tips on how to do so.

Research before getting in touch


There are so many different recruitment agencies out there, so it’s important that you don’t just click the first one that pops up on your search engine. It is also important for you to do your research and choose a recruitment agency that either specialises in the industry you are looking for a job in, or even better, a multi-vertical recruitment agency. To put it simpler, multi-vertical recruitment agencies are those that don't specialise in one industry but specialise in many industries.


Lucky for you, The Recruitment Crowd is a multi-vertical recruitment agency and we specialise in many different industries across the perm and temp recruitment sectors. Industries include but are not limited to; FMCG, Accountancy & Finance, Business Support, Marketing, Transport & Logistics and Warehouse Jobs.


On top of this, we are based in Leeds but we recruit all across the UK!


It’s important to make use of this as experts in your industry are able to provide you with advice on the types of roles available, broaden your knowledge in the field and let you know which stage of your career you’re at depending on your experience and education.


Amongst our fantastic team of consultants who are based in Leeds, there will be at least one who specialises in your field!


This takes us to tip number two, be honest about your experience!


When you’re looking for a job, it may be tempting to throw in a few white lies regarding your experience and education. However, doing so will only make it harder to find a job that you are actually suited to. It’s always best to be honest and realistic with recruitment agencies in order to get the most out of them!


Be open minded with job roles


If your recruitment consultant approaches you about a job role, try to remain as open minded as possible. When a consultant sends you a job opportunity, it’s highly likely that they think that you’re a good fit for the role.


It’s definitely worth going for the interview. Firstly because it’s always important to gain interview experience whenever possible and secondly because going for the interview can change your initial thoughts – whatever they were!
