5 reasons why grads should use a recruitment agency

You’re close to graduating, the question is, what next? It’s easy to think that because you have a degree you’ll automatically find work, unfortunately this isn’t the case. You aren’t only graduating with the rest of your University; you’re competing with previous Grads who chose a placement year; a gap year and Grads already in employment. Competition is fierce but the good news is we can help!

Below you’ll find 5 reasons why you should use a recruitment agency:
