The best graduate recruitment agencies in the UK use graduate-women.com to advertise some of the best graduate jobs in the UK.
|1st Place Graduate Recruitment|
Recruitment agencies will contact companies who are looking to employ graduates to see if they can assist in filling the vacancy. Some companies have a policy of not using recruitment agencies, but if there is no objection by the company the recruitment agency will begin searching for appropriate graduates to fill the role.
Its useful to understand the relationships between you (the graduate), the recruitment agent, and the company looking to employ a graduate. Most recruitment agencies charge a percentage of the starting salary for the person they placed into a role as their "finders fee". For example, if you were placed by a recruitment agency and your starting salary is £17,000, the fee paid to the recruitment agency is £2,250 if a 15% finders fee is agreed.
Once the wheels are in motion, the role of the recruitment consultant is similar to that a dating agency. They have to find a suitable partner for their client, make an introduction, and hope that each party likes the other!
In order to find a suitable candidate, the recruitment agent will have an in-house database of contacts who are potentially available. If you match their criteria this is why you may potentially get a call out of the blue. Recruitment agencies will also use other sources like graduate-women.com to advertise jobs and search our online CV database. This is why creating a CV is so important, you need to get your CV out to as big an audience as possible to stand the best chance.
Companies use Recruitment Agencies because:
In order to be considered with a recruitment agency you have to sign up with them or simply apply to one of the jobs they have listed on graduate-women.com. Over and above this there are some techniques you can use to make sure that you are at the forefront of their consideration. The recruitment agent is in a powerful position and will be influential in providing a short list of candidates for their client. to ensure you stand the best chance of appearing on this list consider the following:
Don't expect a personal response to each application you make to a recruitment agency. Quite simply there is not enough time to respond to all the applications. If your CV appears appropriate for the role you might get a call from the recruitment agent. If its not - you wont. Its harsh, but that the reality.
In reality your recruitment agent is not exclusively working on your behalf. There may possibly be hundreds of graduates using the same agent. Don't sit and wait for the recruitment agent to come to you. Make it easy as possible for them to contact / consider you when a suitable role appears.
Here are some tips to ensure the graduate recruitment agents you sign up with work for YOU.
