Rumour has it....

As a recruitment agency, we often hear first-hand the misconceptions that people have about agencies, what we do, and how we operate. Today we wanted to clarify some of the most common rumours about recruitment agencies that are simply NOT true!


We take a percentage of your salary

Unfortunately, this is a very common rumour believed by people who have never had to deal with an agency before, and this is where the ‘apply directly’ outlook is encouraged, as people believe that we will take a percentage of their salary. An agencies fees are charged to the client, not the candidate. So not a penny of your wage will be taken, we promise!


It costs money to join an agency

It costs absolutely nothing to pop into an agency and register yourself for work. The only requirement we have is that you bring valid ID, proof of address, proof of national insurance and your bank details so that we are able to pay your wages. Other than that, you do not need to do anything to register with an agency!


You can only be registered at one agency

No agency will ever tell you that you cannot register with another one. Of course, we would all prefer you to only be registered with us as it gives us the opportunity to secure work for you, but you can be registered with as many agencies as you like so long as you keep them informed and updated with your work circumstances.


We only have low paid and low skilled jobs available

This is a personal favourite of mine having worked on the highest variation of roles in my recruitment career. We work on several industries and levels of jobs, including high-skilled, director-level positions. It all depends what our clients are looking for at that time.


Recruiters only care about money

We build relationships and connections with both our clients and our candidates, so we want to ensure that we are placing people in the right job for them, regardless of our commission. So, rest assured we will not just place you in a position so that we can get paid! We care much more than that!
