The benefits of using a specialised recruitment agency when applying for jobs

Finding the right job can be arduous for any one, and even more so when you work in a specialised industry or sector.

If you are searching for a job in the science and clinical industry, working with a specialised recruitment agency such as CK Group could be the solution to your job-hunting challenges. Here are some of the main benefits of using a specialised recruitment agency when applying for a new job.

 

Access to jobs and companies that are not always advertised

Surprisingly, only 30% of all new jobs are advertised.

However, recruiters working on behalf of multiple businesses at once are the first to know who will be hiring, even if the position isn’t advertised yet. Working with a recruitment agency can provide you with that insider information, giving you a head start.

By using CK Group as your recruitment specialist you will have access to a large array of job opportunities in the scientific, clinical and technical industries, from the top life science companies to the latest start-ups.

 

Recruiters can assist and advise you on your resume and application

Did you know that 59% of applications will be rejected based on poor grammar or spelling errors, and a further 50% of candidates will be rejected if their resume is full of clichés? If you want to get noticed it is highly important to get your resume spot on.

Recruitment agencies are experts at helping candidates with resumes and application forms. They understand exactly what hiring managers are looking for, and how to make you stand out from the crowd. They will provide you with constructive feedback, giving you the best possible chance of success.

 

Recruiters can help with your interview preparation

In a recent survey, 33% of hiring managers said they know whether they would hire someone in the first 90 seconds and 47% stated that they wouldn’t offer the job to a candidate if they had little knowledge of the company. It goes without saying that interview preparation is essential for successfully securing a role.

Recruitment agencies give you a great advantage in preparing for your interview.  Not only will they have more knowledge of the hiring companies’ cultures and job specifications than available to you online, they can also give you more of an understanding of what the companies expect when it comes to your application, interview and the hiring process.

 

A recruiter can save you time and energy

Searching and applying for jobs is a very time consuming and tedious process, especially if you are working full-time. With there being hundreds of jobs listed online, it can be a struggle knowing where to start. In a competitive job market, you may find yourself applying to jobs for a while before the right one comes around. According to the Department of Labour, the average job search takes an astonishing 10 months.

By having a large network of staffing consultants with hundreds of job openings on file, recruitment agencies can save you a huge amount of time; you will have only the most suitable jobs selected for your skill set, with interviews, inductions, reference checks and all other additional time-consuming tasks being arranged by the agency.
