We all know searching for a new job is task nobody enjoys doing, but, given the bustling market at the moment, every tax professional should be considering their options for whether it’s time they made a move. It’s a candidate’s market after all. We’ve experienced a real influx of vacancies recently across a number of sectors, but a reduction in available applicants across all levels. This is particularly true from manager level upwards.

So how do candidates make the most of this opportunity?

We all know that the basic purpose of a recruitment agency is to help job seekers find new roles, while also helping companies find the perfect person for their open positions. However, few people realise all the other benefits! 

Partnering with specialist recruiters like Taylor Hawkes can bring a lot of advantages, so here’s just some of what you can expect if you use expert advice and services from a recruitment company:

Job hunting is time consuming. Searching for new opportunities, uploading CVs, writing covering letters, arranging interviews and chasing companies can take hours. By using a recruiter, they handle all of this for you.

Wider variety
Not all positions are posted on jobs boards and some companies solely rely on recruitment agencies. So, by using a recruiter they can explore a wider network of clients and opportunities for you – which could include one you never knew was a possibility.

This is one of the most significant advantages of using an agency. Often there is already a level of trust built between the two parties about the standard of candidates that are provided. This means if the recruiter is happy to share your CV with the client, it will be looked at in detail - giving you a better chance of getting an interview.

You’ll be allocated a recruiter who should know everything about the job market you’re interested in and will be able to provide appropriate tips and some specific insight into opportunities and company styles that would suit you and your next move.

Not receiving feedback with unsuccessful applications is probably one of the most frustrating parts of job hunting, as it can be hard to know what to learn or change for next time. Specialist recruiters will be able to offer constructive criticism, both themselves and received from the client, to help you understand why you weren’t successful. This enables you to strengthen your interview skills in time for your next attempt.

Job hunting can be frustrating, especially if you’re trying to find the time and energy to search for a new role while you’re still working in your current one. Getting the help of a specialist recruitment expert can solve this problem, especially if you work with one who knows your industry and can recommend companies with a culture and progression opportunities that match your own career plans.
