Why it’s important to work with a good recruiter

< Back to blog

At Devonshire, we’re the people behind great people!

We take pride in recruitment and our consultants are experts in their field. Having worked within their sectors for over 10 years (some 20!) we know how important it is for our candidates to work with a trusted and good recruiter.

A good recruiter acts as the bridge between job seekers and employers and have access to exclusive job postings that can help job seekers land their dream job. They can also provide advice to help job seekers stand out from the competition. Recruiters also have access to resources allowing them to provide guidance in the job search process- from CV writing to Portfolio advice, interview preparation, and negotiation techniques.

We asked our team why they think it’s good for anyone looking for a role to work with a recruiter – check out their reasons below…

Offering tailored job matching

We offer a personalised approach to our candidates’ search which increases the likelihood of finding a job that is a good fit, leading to greater job satisfaction and success. We take the time to understand your skills, qualifications, and career aspirations and then use this information to match you with job openings that align with your profile.

Access to a broader range of opportunities

Our consultants have established relationships with their clients and often receive job openings directly from them that may not be advertised publicly, so you may miss out on your dream job if we’re not helping you with your search.

Expertise in the industry and job market

Our consultants specialise in specific job industries and sectors and possess in-depth knowledge of the market trends, skills in demands and hiring practices. We can provide valuable insights and guidance to help you navigate the job market effectively.

Save you time and effort

Job searching can be a time-consuming and overwhelming process when you are looking for a new role, but as recruiters – it’s what we do daily, so you can delegate a portion of your job-searching to us! We can review suitable jobs, submit your CV and schedule interviews & negotiate salaries, allowing you to focus on other aspects of your job search.

Support and Guidance

We will help you throughout the job search process, from offering advice on improving your CV, showcasing your Portfolio, researching clients, and negotiating job offers.

Interview Preparation and Support

We don’t just find you a job and send you on your way to the interview – at Devonshire, we will provide interview coaching and support to help you perform your best during interviews. We know our clients inside out so can give you insights into the company culture, interview format, and the expectations of the hiring managers, which will hopefully enhance your chances of success against anyone else!

Negotiation Assistance

If offered a role with a salary that you were not expecting (it does happen!), we are experts in handling negotiations to help you secure the best possible offer – we can provide guidance and support in negotiating salary, benefits, and other terms in the contract of employment.

Networking Opportunities

Our consultants have extensive networks and connections within the industries we work in. Even if our client does not have an open role for your skillset, we will help facilitate these connections offering potential career growth opportunities.

Confidentiality and Privacy

If you are currently employed and seeking new opportunities discreetly, we can provide an additional layer of confidentiality and can represent you to potential employers without disclosing your identity until you are ready to proceed.
