Most of us have considered changing career or looking for a new job from time to time and more often than not, we don’t do anything about it. If you are ready for a new opportunity, then it is worthwhile taking the time to plan your next move with care: Why use an agency? An agency will have live vacancies and opportunities that hopefully will be of interest to you. Some clients do not advertise in the local press and use an agency to manage their recruitment process therefore sometimes it is your only avenue into a company. An agency will work with you to find you the position most suited to your skill set and can advise you on different paths to take should you wish to transfer your skills to another area of employment? Why use Tailored Recruitment?

We will interview you face to face prior to you attending any interview so that you have a full understanding of the position and what is expected of you. We will give you interview advice and advice on your CV to ensure it portrays all for your strengths.

We will actively market you out to companies who we know deal with your skill set and sell you in as a prospective employee.

Does it cost anything to join your agency?

No, nothing. We do not charge you for joining the agency of for finding you a position. We do however make a charge for any additional services such as writing your CV for you. (Please see our CV writing service).

Do I need a CV?

Yes, a CV is essentially a selling tool. It outlines your skills and experience so that a potential employer can see at a glance if you have the relevant skills and experience for a particular role. It is your chance to present yourself in the best possible way and is your way of ensuring you are selected for interview.

Writing your CV is one of the most important things you will do to increase your prospects of getting the job you want.

Most jobs advertised on the internet or in the local paper will ask for a CV so it is best to have one prepared in advance so you are ready to act at short notice. Most of our clients will also request a CV so it is something we will always ask for on registration.
