Why use recruiters?

    Recruitment agencies have a bad reputation. There are common misconceptions about how recruitment agencies work, such as it isn’t a personal service and candidates feel they are just a number to meet a placement quota. Or that the recruiter doesn’t really know about the job role they are trying to fill, so can you really trust them to find the right job for you?

    So, here are some reasons why it is beneficial to use recruitment agencies, specifically our team here at Edgar Cowen.

    Firstly, it doesn’t cost you a penny. Many recruitment agencies charge candidates a sign-up fee to use their services, but here at Edgar Cowen we will handle your job search from start to finish for free. We are happy to work around you – we understand how important discretion is when job hunting so we will communicate with you around your schedule and we are happy communicate you via email or telephone depending on your preference. We can also remove a lot of the time-consuming process in searching for a new role by finding the right job for you and arranging the interviews to fit around your current work life.

    We are a specialist recruitment firm, working with companies in the Property, Construction and Technology sectors. We know the companies we are sending to you having built up strong relationships with them over the years and as we only deal within these sectors, we are trained to know which company would be the best fit for you. It is important for us to match the candidate and company perfectly so both parties are happy with our service.

    Edgar Cowen consultants can assist you with creating the perfect CV to ensure your strongest skills are highlighted and to make you stand out against the competition. We can also provide specific and personalised interview coaching for the roles you will be interviewing for. An advantage of being a specialised recruitment agency is that we know the companies we are sending you to, and we know the kind of candidates they are looking for meaning we can make you feel confident and prepared beforehand. Our consultants will be on hand leading up the interview and on the day itself to offer advice and support should you require it.

    For many job seekers, one of the leading factors is the salary. But many people can feel uncomfortable asking for the real amount that they desire, but a recruitment consultant can negotiate on your behalf and try to deliver a mutually agreeable remuneration package.

    If you are still unsure about using Edgar Cowen to help you in job search, why not reach out to us directly by phone or email. We can answer any questions you many have about the process and settle any doubts you may have.
