You’ve probably heard that we’re in a candidate short market at the moment, and at first blush, you could be forgiven for thinking that you should just sit on your laurels and wait for your dream job. So, why use a recruiter?

It is certainly a great time to consider what you want out of your next role but, regardless of the market, landing your dream job is more a case of ‘seize the day’ than ‘good things come to those who wait’. With the number of advertised jobs, it’s easy to become overwhelmed by the options, and the research process can represent an opportunity cost.

So why use a recruiter?

A specialised professional recruiter exists to solve this issue by acting as a filter, putting only relevant jobs in front of you.

A professional recruiter will invest time in you up front, understanding not just what your career aspirations are but why you do what you do.

A specialised recruiter knows their industry, the businesses that make it up, and their leadership and culture.

A switched-on recruiter has their ear to the ground and knows what’s in the works, not just what’s advertised.

An effective recruiter negotiates, so you receive offers worth your while.

By using a recruiter you can:

  • Avoid wasting your time wading through vague and fluffy job ads. Instead, get an informed picture of relevant roles while remaining anonymous.
  • Understand the organisation you are stepping into, their culture, where you would fit, and what development opportunities they offer.
  • Know what’s on the table, but also what’s cooking…
  • Interview for roles that fit your aspirations and meet your needs.
  • Gain interview preparation skills

Choose your recruiter well, and you can spend your weekends doing what you love rather than wearing out your index finger scrolling Job-Boards. At Tyler Wren, each of our Recruitment Partners, in our respective specialities, aims to be the very best at what we do.
