Why You Should Connect With a Recruiter (Before You Really Need One).
When it comes to your career, the best approach is always a proactive one. It’s important to be prepared, so when the time comes for a change, you can make your search for the perfect role as stress-free as possible. Connecting with a recruiter is the best way to take a hands-on approach & facilitate your next career move with as little hassle as possible, getting a foot in the door and giving the future you a head-start. You should think of this as an investment in your future, it’ll pay off in the long run.
You never know what the future will hold, whether your role, company, or motivations change, it’s good to keep your options open. Even if you have no immediate plans to leave, you’re almost certainly going to move on eventually, and it may be sooner than you’d imagined. The last thing you want to do is put yourself in a situation where you’re under pressure to find a role quickly – you could end up accepting the wrong role just because it’s the first one you’ve been offered. Building a relationship with a recruiter can help you bounce back quickly from unforeseen changes: redundancy, a negative environment, or the realisation that you’ve outgrown your current position.
If you’ve been approached by a recruiter about a role that you don’t feel is suitable, or you’re perfectly happy with your current job, it’s always worth ten minutes of your time to chat about what you do want. We’re always interested in learning about you, your motivations, and your long-term goals. This means that in future, recruiters know who you are and what you’re about, making your next career steps so much quicker and simpler. Recruiters have already established relationships & connections, we can do the hard work for you & market you to the right companies, for the right roles. Working with a recruiter that’s specific to your niche industry means we’ll have a clear understanding of your skills, qualifications, ambitions, and suitable vacancies to match.
