Why using a recruitment agency is key to finding the perfect role for you

Taking the next step in your career couldn’t be easier when applying for a role through BRS Jobs, although we do understand there can often be doubts or concerns around using an agency and whether going direct could be a better option for you.

Take a look at our top benefits to applying for a job through a recruitment agency:


1. You (the candidate) are getting help for free!

Our team of expert recruitment consultants are here to help you find the perfect role, not to take a cut of your salary to form their commission. Using a recruitment agency is a complimentary service for candidates looking to build on their career, there’s no hidden costs, we can assure you of that! 

We work on behalf of a number of clients who utilise our service and expertise to put forward the very best candidates for a number of skilled roles, which they pay us to do. 

This effectively means, your future employer is paying to find quality and skilled candidates, and you’re getting a personalised jobseekers service for absolutely nothing!


2. We have the inside scoop on upcoming jobs you may be interested in!

Whether you’re on the lookout for a temporary or permanent role, our clients often give us the heads up before posting external job adverts (and some won’t look direct at all!). 

When we register our candidates’ CV’s, our team of dedicated recruitment consultants will proactively contact you if the right role comes up, regardless of whether we’ve spoken to you recently or not. We recommend you’re open and honest with us about what you’re looking for from your next roles as it’ll enable our team to place you with the right client, at exactly the right time in your career.  

If we haven’t got the perfect role for you currently, we always recommend keeping in regular contact with us, updating your availability status and building a good relationship with one of our consultants, so that we can pitch your cracking personality and skillset to the recruiter as soon as a potential role becomes available.


3. If you succeed, we do too!

A recruitment agency relies heavily on its candidates and job seekers as without you, we won’t have any clients! Our team will always bend over backwards to try and get our desired candidates to succeed. 

Your personality can often promote you better than your CV can, which is why we encourage strong, reliable and trustworthy relationships with our team of consultants so that we can get to know you and shout from the rooftops how fantastic you are.


4. We’re the experts, trust us! 

We’re the experts in our field, and we know our clients’ needs and wants inside out, which is what sets us apart from other recruitment agencies. We understand the skills required to fulfil a role within both the construction and engineering sectors, and we pledge to place you in not only a suitable role for your experience, but with the right employer.



5. We’ll save you heaps of time!

Let’s face it, looking for a job, let alone the perfect job, is pretty time consuming. You’ve probably spent hours upon hours scrolling through different jobs’ boards and tinkering with your CV to meet the skills required for each position. It’s true when they say looking for a job is a full time job in itself!

When you work with BRS Jobs, send us your CV and we’ll get to know you, your skills, and your personality which will enable us to take the hassle of endless rejection emails away from you. 

Essentially, you just need to sit back, relax and look forward to your next interview; it’s as simple as that!

Now that you’ve read the benefits of working with a recruitment agency, send your CV to us at info@brsjobs.co.uk and we’ll find the perfect role for you.
