Why use an agency for your next job?
28th Nov, 2017
How do you know it's time for a change?
We all recognise those nagging signs when a job has lost its appeal. Getting out of bed becomes that much harder, you resent the daily commute, motivation and productivity fall to an all-time low, and you clock-watch from start to finish.
But the best way to work out if it's time for a change is to simply ask yourself: am I happy?
Sure, we all get the odd day where we'd rather be home watching Netflix and eating pizza, but if more often than not you're truly unhappy in your working environment, then it's definitely time to shake things up in the career department!
How can a recruitment agency find you a job?
Recruiters are there to understand your career to date and any future professional goals. They'll find out all about you as a person, your likes and dislikes, what you want from a new role, and how you feel about certain locations.
Depending on your skills and what you're looking for, a recruiter might come back to you with potential roles on the same day! There's no pressure - you are free to accept or reject suggestions as you see fit; it's completely in your hands.
Recruitment agencies, like Your World Professional, will always have strong relationships with some of the best businesses and organisations in the country, which means they can offer you a wide range of professional job opportunities in multiple locations throughout the United Kingdom.
Does using a recruitment agency cost money?
As a professional seeking a new job, you won't have to pay a recruiter for their services. You may find that some standard fees accrue for documentation or training courses, but if you ever have any doubts about what you're being charged for, you can always ask your consultant to talk you through it.
What are the benefits of using a recruitment agency to find a job?
There are so many! For no direct charge to you, you're saving yourself hours of wasted time trawling through job sites and applying for jobs that aren't even right for you. Far from being a numbers game, recruitment is more of a matchmaking process. Your consultant will find you potential roles based on your skills and requirements - and while they're busy doing the hard part, you can go shopping, bake cakes, ride your mountain bike...the world is your oyster!
What's all this about referral bonuses?
Lots of agencies, like Your World Pro, will offer a special bonus for referring your friends and colleagues. It's very simple really; with their permission, send your friends' details onto your consultant and if they are successfully placed into a new role with that agency, you'll receive a thank you bonus. The more people you refer, the more money you can make!
What if you don't want to commit to a full-time job?
An eight-hour day, five days a week certainly isn't for everyone, and thankfully there are plenty of options available to you.
Due to travel in a year and want to work before you go? Perhaps you have kids and can't work every day of the week? Part-time or fixed term contract jobs would be perfect for you.
Worried that you'll get bored of working the same job every day? Locum/temporary work is fantastic for people who want maximum flexibility and diversity in their career. Pick and choose when and where you work, and fit your career around your personal life - it's that simple!
