Why Use Professional Recruiters? banner thinbanner

Applying for a job on your own can be a stressful and time consuming process.  By working with professional recruiters, you will see immediate benefits.

1.  Time 

You save yourself the time and considerable effort from having to search endless resources for job vacancies, preparing individual cover letters or forms.  Your time is precious, and you can rely  instead on recruitment experts to find and alert you to the right job opportunities. 

2. Confidentiality

You can be assured that discussing your future with a recruitment consultant at Star Anise will be done so with the utmost confidence and care.  We value your privacy and and we make it absolutely clear that none of your details are sent to any client without first consulting you on the position. 

3.  The whole picture

Many jobs come to the attention of quality recruiters before they are published.   And with all the jobs that are advertised, it is very easy to overlook some which are suitable for you. By using a specialist recruiter you could be briefed on suitable roles that you may not be aware of, or which may not necessarily be advertised.  

4.  Market knowledge 

As professionals who 'live and breathe' the recruitment process daily, we have an in-depth knowledge of the latest market trends and market rates, the composition and structure of a hiring team and their aims for the future. Being advised by a consultant will enable you to make an informed decision that's right for you.  

5.  A third eye

From a third person's perspective, we are able to give objective advice on your CV/resume and give sound, constructive advice on how to 'sell' your strengths to its maximum potential.  

6.  People Intelligence

Reviewing corporate literature will only get you so far.  If you are invited to an interview through us, we will guide you through the process and brief you on your interviewer(s), the employing organisation, and their expectations.  

7.  Feedback

Often, you might be hesitant in requesting feedback on your interview, for fear that this might affect your chances of progressing to the next stage of interview.   As we work closely with candidates and employers, gaining feedback is a part of our service to you.  We will speak to the employer after the interview and advise you of their feedback in a professional and timely manner.

8.  Negotiations

Once you have successfully gone through the interviewing process, we will advise and support you through the offer stage and salary negotiations, thereby avoiding you the embarrassment of appearing to “barter” for every cent.  

9.  Recruiting with a human touch

We build long term relationships with our clients and candidates based on mutual trust and respect.  You're not just another statistic.  We work with you to achieve your long term goals and give you guidance along the way. 

10. A Free Service For Candidates

Our service to assist candidates in their job hunt is free. All we ask of you is your complete openness and transparency in your work history, disclosure of your true authentic self and your genuine career goals, and prompt communication.  By working closely together in this manner, we are already closer to reaching your expectations.
