We know that IT, digital, cyber security and data professionals are motivated and ambitious – but even considering changing jobs can be complicated.

Perhaps you want to develop your career further, specialise more acutely in a particular sector, expand your skillset – or maybe your current role isn’t giving you what you need in seniority, salary, flexibility or culture. 

So you’re thinking about moving and you’re probably being approached by recruitment agencies. Why use them when you can explore options yourself? Here are the seven biggest benefits of using a recruitment agency.  

We find you the best opportunities 

It’s our job to help IT talent find jobs across different industries. As a recruitment consultancy, it’s what we do.  

The beauty of recruitment agencies is that we often have insight into jobs that aren’t yet advertised. We work with a range of exciting businesses – from start-up to established – who come to us first before making their vacancy public. 

We always listen to what you’re looking for and only put you forward for roles that match your priorities. And we don’t just wait for jobs to come in. If we think you’re a great addition to a business, we can reach out to them before there’s even a job opening.  

The most important thing we do for IT professionals is helping plot your career path and getting you where you want to be.  

Expert support and guidance 

One of the greatest benefits of using a recruitment agency is that we can give you a range of support and guidance anywhere along your journey – from when you consider leaving your current role, all the way through to onboarding with your new employer and beyond.  

We can support you as much or as little as you need. We can help you: 

  • Update your CV to give you the best change for interviews 
  • Stand out in interviews – including suggesting questions they might have 
  • Receive feedback from the interview  
  • Negotiate better salaries (and do this on your behalf) 
  • Answer any questions you might not want to ask the business – such as salaries, flexibility, hybrid working, benefits and length of time before promotions 
  • Hand in your notice with your current employer 
  • Navigate your new offer and talk you through the culture of the business 

Save your time and effort 

We all know how demanding and time-consuming it can be when looking for a new job, whether that’s updating your CV, searching for new opportunities or interviewing.  

We can take away some of this time pressure and energy by managing all these stages for you, so you can focus on your current role and other parts of the process. And best of all – it’s free. 

Connect with your industry 

Recruitment agencies are useful gateways to connecting with your industry. 

We have extensive networks across digital, data, cyber security and infrastructure and we know many of the hiring managers on a personal level.  

This means you can tap into our network, connect with your peers, meet new people and even get in front of different employers.  

Market insights and information 

We talk to people like you every day, as well as businesses of all shapes and sizes. This gives us valuable insight into your market – including trends, in-demand skills and emerging technologies.  

Our knowledge of the market helps you find your dream role by tailoring your job search and making sure we position you with your competitive edge.  

Confidentiality  

Confidentiality is the most important thing to us. We will never publicise that you’re having conversations with us and will ensure your current employer isn’t aware of your job searches.
