1.4 Using recruitment agencies

Recruitment agencies can help you to find work but, as with an employer, you have to show the agent what skills you have and where you are able to work.

You can find recruitment agencies relevant to your sector by searching online. Many recruitment agencies also have a presence on LinkedIn; by using the company directory section you can browse these by industry and then browse by staffing/recruiting.

In the next section, you will look again at how to ensure your CV is doing the job you want it to do, and tailoring your CV to a specific job that you want.
