5 reasons candidates should always talk to recruiters


While it’s possible to land your next role by scouring job ads or applying directly to companies, you’re much more likely to find the right job faster when you use a recruiter. In this article, we’ll share five reasons why you should talk to recruiters and why your first call should always be to an experienced recruiter like 360 Search.


1 – Recruiters have the roles you want


The best companies already partner with recruiters for their hiring, so when there are available roles, their chosen agency probably has exclusivity to hire for them. You won’t be able to find out about those positions yourself. 360 Search are specialists in insurance and financial services. We build long-term relationships with our clients based on a track record of solid hires – and they trust us to find them the best talent when they need it. We also offer an introduction service, which more often than not, leads to hires that were not forecasted within the business.


2 – Recruiters have industry knowledge


Good recruiters know their industries inside-out. When you’re looking for a new role, they can help you with market knowledge, salary benchmarks and the challenges you might face. At 360 Search, most of our consultants have worked in the industry before and have deep technical knowledge of what success looks like. We’re in the best position to help you make the right choice.


3 – Recruiters give you the support you need


Landing a new role is hard, especially if you haven’t done it for a while. Your recruiter is there to guide you on your journey, including helping you prepare for interviews, delivering constructive feedback and sharing insights into what the company is looking for. They’ll also keep everything confidential, which can be extremely valuable if you’re currently employed elsewhere.


4 – Recruiters take care of everything


People say looking for a new role is like a full-time job on its own. There could be multiple rounds of interviews, each requiring much back-and-forth on the phone and email to arrange. Depending on how many positions you’re applying for, it could take up hours of your day. Instead, get your recruiter to do all the admin, so your head is clear to perform at your best in your interviews.


5 – Our success is your success


The best recruiters are in it for the long haul. We don’t just want to help you find your next role; we want to help you develop your entire career. At 360 Search, we always try to build long-term relationships, so we’re the first people you call when you’re planning your next move.
