In 2013 there were 23,352 recruitment companies registered in the United Kingdom alone! How do you get that personal chat over coffee?
Many agencies are small and specialist, so it pays to research carefully to ensure you get the best. It is important to remember that the business model of most agencies means they don’t work for you as the candidate: they actually work for the company which is hiring. However agencies are only as good as the candidates they deal with so if they keep a database of candidates they need to know about you and have you on their database. It is worth being proactive to stand out.
