5 key reasons you should work with Huxley

When it comes to your career, it’s essential you find a consultant that you can truly trust to find the right role for you. We recently spoke with our consultants to find out what they believe are the biggest benefits of working with a recruitment agency. Here are the top 5 reasons as to why choosing Huxley can put you a step ahead of the competition.

  1. You matter to us

Building trusting relationships is at the heart of everything we do; it means people truly value our judgement. If we put you forward for an interview, our client is more likely to consider you for a role than if you applied independently.

Thanks to our consultative service, we’re able to identify key attributes of both parties that will create beneficial partnerships. We can offer additional information about the company and advise you as to whether it’s the best fit for you. Our in-depth understanding of how each client functions means you’ll get honest information about the environment you’ll be working in. So you can be confident you’ll be matched with the company that’s right for you.

  1. You can trust our reputation

Reputation is key; we’re recognised as founding members of APSCo and have over 20 years’ specialist recruitment experience. If you want to find the best roles, you need to choose a recruitment company that’s respected within their industry.

Lorraine Johnson, Principal Recruitment Consultant, highlights the benefit of working with a reputable agency, “We use our influence and brand reputation to help you get a job. Our reputation means clients trust us to pick the best candidates for their needs, greatly improving your chances of getting a job.”

  1. We’ll develop a partnership

Our consultative service means we work closely with both candidates and clients to create life changing partnerships. We’re not just interested in identifying our client’s key requirements and your key skills; we understand a successful relationship goes beyond this. Lorraine says, “We work to find the company that will be the best cultural fit for you, something you wouldn’t get from applying for a role you’ve find online, without our industry knowledge.”

Contacting people on our shortlist, we let them know about the company. We speak directly with the people on our database to get an idea of what you’re looking for and match you accordingly to the right role.

  1. You’ll work with a specialist

One of the most important factors when choosing a recruitment agency is making sure you pick one that understands your market. Working with a specialist staffing agency gives you an advantage you don’t get from working with other recruiters. With Huxley, you’ll be assigned a dedicated consultant with niche STEM knowledge and experience of the sector you work in. Their expert insight means they’ll be able to talk to you about critical projects within the industry and advise you accordingly.

Alex Henes, Senior Recruitment Consultant, explains, “Our job is recruitment, and we’re specialists within our market. That means we can give you a full market overview as to the kinds of companies that are looking and what skills they’re seeking. We’ll have a full understanding of our client; their values, the company, and team culture. These are things you wouldn’t have access to on a job board and from only being able to look at a job spec.”

  1. You’ll have access to exclusive jobs

As industry specialists, our consultants have access to positions that may be otherwise inaccessible. We work many roles on an exclusive basis so the only way you’ll hear about them is from our consultants or on our website. And our outstanding client relationships offer the potential for opportunities to be created due to our consultative service.

According to Alex, “A recruiter can partner with you and try to open doors for you at companies that may not even be currently looking to hire. For example, the recruiter you’re working with can use the relationships they’ve developed with various hiring managers to see what they think about your profile. This can mean that you’re going forward for a role with no competition because the company wasn’t even looking to hire.”

If you’re looking for your next role, take a look at the opportunities we have available at Huxley, or get in touch with our team and allow us to find the perfect role for you.
