The number of recruitment agencies in Ireland has increased over the past number of years.
More and more companies are relying on the expertise of a recruitment agency to source hard to find talent as recruiting in-house often doesn’t make for a wise investment of resources. Knowing when and how to use them effectively can not only reduce the stress of recruiting, it can help you guarantee a long-term hire.
Like all industries there are the reputable/good agencies, and then, of course, the not so good agencies. Many people fail to realise that not using a reputable agency such as CareerWise Recruitment may result in you not being well represented. By engaging with a recruitment agency that understands your industry and they will offer industry-specific knowledge of market trends, salary levels and the skills required to be successful in your industry.
The agency/candidate relationship works both ways, most job seekers have their preferred recruiter or recruitment agency that they rely on to keep them up to date with the latest vacancies and industry news. On the opposite side recruitment agencies have their preferred candidates whom they build a lasting relationship with and rely on for referrals and insider industry news.
