Benefits of working with a recruitment agency when searching for a law job

If you’re on the hunt for your next career move, have you considered working with a recruitment agency? We understand that if you haven't ever used one before to apply for a job, it could be unfamiliar. However, we think recruitment agencies are a great way to bag yourself a law job you love.


Here are just a few reasons to consider applying for a role via an agency:


They take care of the hard work

We know the process of searching for a job can be daunting, but recruitment agencies live for it! They will be the ones to send your CV to targeted clients, will organise the interviews and they will give you updates and feedback, taking all of the hard work out of it for you! This will give you more time to research the company, perfect your interview questions and gain your confidence before taking the next steps.


They’re the experts 

They are experts in interviewing, CV writing and skills assessments, amongst many other things they’ll be able to give guidance on! Even if you don’t get the role you applied for, they’ll be able to guide you through what to work on for next time. 


They know the market

They know and understand the job market better than anyone else - it is their business after all! This gives you an advantage, as they'll be able to guide you towards companies that they think you would be well suited for. 


They can help you shine! 

They know exactly what their client is after in a candidate, so they’ll be able to relay this back to you! Recruitment agencies can help you shine in the eyes of the employers by giving advice, tips and strenghts to focus on that could win them over. After all, it’s their job to help find the right role for you and ensure that you’re happy.


Next time you're searching for a job, try not to be so quick to discard the recruitment agencies' jobs, as they'll probably have quite a few different clients that could be big names in our industry.
