I'm referring to recruitment consultants and estate agents of course, the people that are often referred to as a blight on society, jumped up money grabbing ****, well, you know the rest.
However, when it comes to the crunch and you need to move jobs or home, which will without doubt affect everybody at some stage of their lives...YOU WILL INTERACT WITH US.

Recruitment consultants occupy a special place in many people’s minds. They are often regarded with the same degree of contempt as estate agents, perceived as middle men who earn fees for being a broker. What people often forget is that, like estate agents, they are working for (and paid by) the vendor, or in this case the employer. If you have reservations about using an agent, you can look at other options first. Ask yourself if you need to move at all? Perhaps you can reshape your current role in a way that might tempt you to stay. If you are dead-set on moving, you still don’t have to use an agent. In fact many people go through their entire career this way. The real advantage of using a recruitment agent is that they can dramatically speed up the process of finding a new role.
