How To Identify a Good Recruitment Consultancy To Work With

Don’t know where to start or who to register with? Don’t worry– we have put together a few helpful tips to help get you started;

1. Do Your Research

Might sound simple, but it is important you research different recruitment agencies to identify which one will be best to help support you in your job search. Recruitment agencies often specialise in the types of roles they recruit and industries they work in, so it is imperative you are working with one that can speak to you about jobs you are actually interested in exploring!

Don’t be afraid to register with a couple of agencies too – every agency will be working with diverse clients so it is a nice way to be introduced to different companies or organisations.

2. Find A Recruitment Consultant You Connect With

Finding a new job can be a full-time job in itself and at times a little overwhelming – so it is key to partner with a recruitment agency or consultant you connect with. A good consultant will want to understand your key motivators and what drives you professionally and personally – to help determine your long-term career goals.

Most importantly, a good recruitment consultant will listen. There is nothing worse than spending an hour with someone, for them to call you about a role that is irrelevant to what you had spoken about!

3. Ask Your Friends

Reach out to your friends who have done the move like you, now you’re back in New Zealand ask what recruitment agencies they have had most success with or connected with. If they can share some positive and or negative experiences – this will help you in finding the best one for you.

Chances are – someone will know someone who can steer you in the right direction, welcome back to New Zealand!
