What does a recruitment company do?

If you are look for work then you may wonder what a recruitment company does and if you should be going to see one. There are several different types of recruitment companies, some of which specialise in certain industries such as teaching or IT. Some only offer temporary vacancies others also source suitable candidates for permanent positions. You may also find a recruitment agency that offers both.

You can decide which recruitment agency to use depending on what type of work you are looking for. If you are in desperate need of a job and do not mind what you are doing as long as you have an income the temporary work may be the answer but it is also worthwhile registering with ones that search for more permanent positions in the meantime. With this type of work you may be expected to go to a different place of work every day – basically going where the work is. Some people love the change whereas others hate it.  

Recruitment agencies fees also vary. Often with permanent positions, it’s the employer that is charged not the successful candidate. With temporary work, agencies tend to take a percentage of your salary to cover the costs.
