Working with a creative recruitment agency, as a candidate
Creative recruitment agency

Have you ever wondered how a creative recruitment agency works?


As a recruitment agency in the creative sectors, we’ve worked with many candidates and clients throughout the decades.


And while all candidate interactions are different, the recruitment process is almost always the same. So, today we’ll explain how recruitment consultants work and what you need to know to build a good working relationship with them.


What do creative recruitment consultants do?


Recruitment consultants match candidates to job roles, and they also develop new business opportunities, so there’s a variety of job roles available to you. But they also:


  • Build long-term working relationships with clients and candidates.
  • Manage the recruitment cycle from initial interest to interview, offer, and beyond.
  • Prepare candidates for interviews, negotiate salary and benefits.
  • Arrange references and background checks.
  • Keep up to date with recruitment trends.


What are some things you should know?


A recruitment consultant will only send you for interview consideration if they think you’d be a good fit. And acting as a mock interviewer to give you feedback. So why should you consider working with a recruitment consultant?


Well, the benefits of signing up to a recruitment agency include specialist advice for your sector, expert interview preparation, access to roles that you might not get an interview for independently.


As well as advance information about roles that might be coming up at a company, someone to advocate for you as a candidate and negotiate salary and benefits packages.


Plus, the opportunity to apply for multiple positions or contracts, and feedback from the interview that you might not otherwise receive.


There are loads of other benefits of working with a recruitment agency. So, if you are interested in finding out, check out the full blog post here.


And of course, if you are interested in working with us, we’re more than happy to have an initial conversation with you.

Moxie and Mettle is a UK-based recruitment company; our clients are based in the UK too. Although many clients offer remote working as an option, there is still a need to regularly visit company offices and clients in the UK. Therefore, applications from overseas are unlikely to be successful, unless applicants already have plans to be in the UK several times a month/year to facilitate meetings with both the teams and clients.
