Recruitment Consultants are all the same ... Or are they??

04/03/19

They say they will call back but they never do; They are sales orientated recruiters who lack expertise in my industry.

 

Sounds familiar? Well, these are the most frequent complaints candidates declared about their recruitment consultants. It;`s frustrating because these recruiters give the industry a bad reputation. At Markkazi, we care about the people we work with and serve, we realise to be successful our recruiters must build meaningful, professional relationships with our candidates that are based on transparency and trust. We work closely with our candidates taking the time to understand their requirements and ambitions then we support them through their job search journey by seeking suitable job opportunities that meet their expectations. A good recruitment consultant should be searching for jobs that satisfy most, if not all of their candidate & requirements, for example The appropriate salary and benefits, which a recruiter needs to verify with recent market trends and salary surveys in order to avoid making a low-ball offer and disappointing the candidate. Career progression opportunities, so candidates can unleash their potential and fulfill their ambitions. Work-life balance and a convenient location, as these elements are relatively connected, a far work location will deprive the individual of having a balanced social life, which will ultimately affect their work. The right organisational culture who doesn`t want a friendly and professional workplace environment, somewhere where you can feel a sense of ownership and cohesiveness. Pitfalls to avoid: The Web seems to be full of recruiting scams targeted at jobseekers. Recruitment agencies often use social media to lure unwitting jobseekers. Some recruiters tend to post fake job adverts just so they can add a few more CVs to their database. Some recruitment agencies have a convoluted registration process layered with lengthy application forms and a plethora of required documentation, at the end of which, you never even get to hear from them again. At Markkazi, we promise never to advertise vacancies that don't exist. In cases where our client has assigned us to find suitable candidates for a job vacancy they have, we will advertise the job opening on our website and other forms of media under our own branding. In cases where we are not contracted by an employer, but we believe the job opportunity could benefit a large number of our jobseekers, we will share the vacancy using the employers direct contact information so anyone who is interested can apply directly for the job. It's not all about the pounds and pence here at Markkazi, we strive to create sustainable value for our people and communities.
