Using Recruitment Agencies

Rewind to a year ago and I knew nothing about recruitment agencies and neither did my friends. We were all talking about moving to London and looking for jobs and we thought the way we would do this would be by looking online and networking. We didn’t realise that there were people who would help us find our dream jobs. A couple of months into our year of studying on a secretarial course, some recruitment agencies came in and started talking to us about our options following our graduation. Two of these talks in and I was still none the wiser. Why would people help find us jobs and if they would, how much would it cost us? At the end of one of these talks, someone plucked up the courage to ask how much the service of using recruitment agencies cost, and they told us “nothing”. That couldn’t be right could it? Fast forward a year and I have been working at a recruitment agency for a few months now, and I couldn’t recommend signing up with an agency any more.

#JGStories - Indy Bamber

This week, we spoke to our new Resourcer and Office Coordinator, Indy Bamber. Indy joined the team permanently at the beginning of March having worked at a school for over a year. This week we asked Indy some questions about herself and the decisions that she has made to end up where she is today, working t Joyce Guiness. She tells us why she didn't go to university as well as her decision to stay in London, having spent a lot of time here when she was growing up. We hope you enjoy getting to know Indy as much as we have! If you are a client of candidate and would like the chance to feature as one of our #JGStories, don't hesitate to get in touch! Why did you decide not to go to University? The main reason I decided not to go to university was because I didn’t have one subject that I was set on studying. I am an outgoing and sociable individual and so thought that I would go down a more practical route and put my skills into place. That was when I came to the decision to enrol at Quest Professional. Quest is a secretarial course which provides young individuals with the key skills to get into the workplace. I decided to do the 9 month course which provided me both with business skills..

Finding jobs through social…

Over 90% of companies use social media when hiring especially via a recruitment agency platform; It’s an efficient quick and environmentally friendly marketing method for finding candidates. Sites like LinkedIn are top of the list for social media job search(es) with over 400 million followers - this has ramped up the need to be social media savvy and participate as a business to keep up with the everchanging hiring, recruiting and employment trends. A large percentage of companies will use platform(s) such as Facebook to screen candidates so it is imperative that your online presence and profile have to be clear of any posts, photos or comments that would jeopardise your chances of getting your foot in the door with recruiters and companies in general. Instagram feeds, stories and blogs are also a quickfire way to get the job details out there to candidates; posting pictures and information that is pleasing to the candidate’s’ feed and links that take them straight to the employment agency - it takes the work out of pounding the pavements and saves time and energy for - both recruiters, candidates and clients. It’s also a good way of connecting on a human level (believe it or not!) to the recruiter’s - office, team by sharing more than just the new job that comes in - photos of the team on days out, sharing ideas of..
