Frequently Asked Questions For Job Seekers

What is a recruitment agency?

Recruitment agencies act as the middleman between a company and job seeker. 

Companies approach recruitment agencies with job vacancies and it’s the agency’s job to fill these jobs with suitable talent, through sourcing, screening and filtering through large volumes of applicants. It is also their duty to help candidates find appropriate work that fits their search criteria.

What is Temping and what is the process?

Sometimes candidates can find themselves between jobs, unsure what career direction they want to take or have just moved to the area and are looking to gain some experience.

 

Temping is a great opportunity to experience different types of companies and employers and to improve your skills in many diverse roles. Occasionally temping can lead to full-time employment with an employer.

 

What is the temping process:

 

  • You would need to be available at short notice
  • Attend a registration interview with Shortt Recruitment
  • Provide references
  • Bank account details
  • Provide evidence of permission to work in Ireland if necessary

 

Shortt Recruitment will call you in as more opportunities arise.

Do recruitment agencies check references?

Yes, all recruitment agencies collect references and check them on behalf of the company they are fulfilling the role for.

Do recruitment agencies charge candidates?

No, recruitment agencies typically do not charge candidates for matching them to a role. Many recruitment agencies also provide additional services that there may be suitable charges for.

What do recruitment agencies ask you?

Recruitment consultants will typically ask you a range of questions about your background, your ideal position, some interview questions, salary expectations and working availability.

Some examples of the questions they usually ask include:

What are your motivations behind applying for a particular job opportunity?

Your skills and experience that will need for the job

What are your reasons for leaving your current employer?

What kind of salary level are you currently on and what you’re looking for in the future?
