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.
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.
