Top Tips for Candidates working with Recruitment Agencies

When choosing a recruitment agency to find you either temporary or permanent employment there are a number of things to consider. Will the agency work hard to find a position that suits your skills and listen to your requirements and not bog you down with offers that aren’t relevant to you? But also are they trustworthy, will they keep your personal details safe and are they offering you jobs that are actually available?

It's not uncommon for people to create a persona rather than being truthful about who they really are when online and that includes scammers. So be very careful when communicating with people you've only met online. Most job sites try to screen those that sign up with them but it's never going to be 100%.

The candidates who have forwarded their CVs are then approached by the bogus advertiser who explains to them that they have a very good background which is most suitable for the advertised role.

Safer Jobs

Creating an internet safe CV

Always ensure you know who will be processing the information contained in your C.V. Your C.V. contains a great deal of personal information about you. In the hands of the fraudster this can lead to identity theft.
