8 reasons why you should work with a recruitment consultant on your job search

Written on March 22, 2021 by Jonathon Webley

Here at Agile Recruit, we don’t just fill vacancies. We understand the data sector and the specialisms within it, and we take the time to understand what our candidates want from their role. The sole objective of our recruitment consultants is to help you to take the next step in your career, to help you to reach your ambitions and goals.

With that in mind, here are eight great reasons why you should work with the Agile Recruit team on your next data and technology role:

#1 We can help you stand out from the crowd

As soon as you start working with a recruitment consultant you are automatically put into a select list of candidates. If you match the skills and qualifications of the job we are working on, then you will be moved to our next carefully curated list. This means that your chances of selection move from being 1 in 1000 to more like 1 in 10 (depending on the job role).

Our clients then receive this carefully curated list of hand-picked candidates (including you) which puts you in a much better position to promote yourselves to them and stand out from the rest.

#2 We have connections!

The clients we work with at Agile Recruit are all clients that we know personally and have built a relationship with over the years. It’s all about who you know, after all. Once we have looked through your CV and caught up with you about your career goals we can then go back to our client and sell you to them – if we think you will be the right fit for their business.

If you don’t get the first position you are interviewed for, don’t worry. We have lots of industry contacts and hiring managers within the data and technology sector and so we can keep in touch with you and let you know if anything else comes up that we think you will be suitable for.

#3 We want to get you hired

Our aim is to get you the perfect job and so we will do everything we can to try and make that happen, including telling you everything you need to know to help you make the right decision. We’ll talk to you about your career – including your short-term aims and long-term ambitions, and then sell you to our clients effectively in order to help you to achieve them.

#4 We don’t charge you for using our experience

Registering with us and picking the brains of our experienced recruitment consultants is free – as any placement fees are paid to us by the company that hires you. So, why not register with us and ask us for detailed CV analysis, strategic career guidance and help with navigating the interview process?

#5 We are specialists in the data and technology industry

Working with Agile Recruit gives you a link between you and future employers that you can influence by sharing with us all the skills you cannot just write down on paper. We are specialists in the data and technology industry and so are experts at connecting the dots between where you are now and where you want to be, making sure you are lined up for success.

#6 We can enhance your interview skills

We have inside knowledge of the data and technology sector and so can provide you with specific advice and tips that are not only tailored to how the industry works, but also to the company whose role you are applying for. This sort of knowledge is gold dust and can enhance your interview skills immensely.

#7 Access the jobs that no one else knows about first

We often get access to jobs that aren’t listed anywhere else on the internet, and so we can give you early access to jobs that you may meet just the requirements for – before anyone else even knows the position exists.

#8 Confidentiality is key

If you post your CV on every job board on the web, it is more than likely that your current employer will get wise to the fact that you are looking for a new role! However, using Agile Recruit to help you search for a new job means that your details will be kept confidential from your employer while we are hard at work scouring around for the best opportunities for you.

Surely we have convinced you now that working with Agile Recruit’s team of specialist recruitment consultants is the right thing to do. Get in touch with us now to find out more about how we can help you to find your next role.
