What does a recruitment consultant do?
A recruitment consultant acts as an intermediary between an employer and a jobseeker. They will advertise jobs, sift through applications, interview and shortlist a selection of candidates for the employer. Once an employer has made an appointment, the recruitment consultant will finalise salary details, the benefits package and start dates on behalf of the jobseeker.
Animal Recruiter consultants also proactively source potential candidates and offer them career advice.
Will you charge me fees?
At Animal Recruiter we charge our employers a percentage of salary when we successfully place a new member of staff. We do not charge jobseekers for any of our services.
Should I apply for job direct or use a recruitment consultancy?
Many employers, especially if they need to fill a role quickly, will only advertise roles through a recruitment consultancy. A recruitment consultant will not only act as a middleman ‘selling’ you to the employer, but will also give you advice on crafting your CV and interview technique to fit each particular role. We would therefore advise only applying through a consultancy.
If you do apply directly for any roles, you should let your recruitment consultant know so that applications are not duplicated.
Why should I register with Animal Recruiter?
Animal Recruiter consultants are dedicated to the success of your career. We look beyond your next move and offer advice and guidance to help you build a successful future career. We are constantly working on a large selection of charity jobs, and pride ourselves on our efficient and expert representation, which gets candidates the best possible offer.
If I am interested in an advertised position, how do I apply?
Once you have created an account on this you will be able to apply for a role. You can also send your CV directly to us.
I have applied for a role, when will I hear back from you?
Once you apply, your CV will be reviewed by a consultant who will be in touch shortly if we are able to assist you in your job search. If you do not hear from us within 5 working days, then unfortunately we do not have any roles that meet your current skills and experience.
Can I apply if I live outside of the UK?
You can certainly apply for roles if you live outside of the UK and are willing to relocate, although you must provide valid Right to Work documents to be able to work within the UK. Please bear in mind that the majority of our roles are UK-based.
Can I send you my CV on spec?
Yes, please do so by emailing it to the relevant Consultant, but also include information about your availability, salary and role requirements.
I haven’t told my present employer that I’m looking for a job, will you be discreet?
Of course. Your details will be completely confidential and our consultants will be discreet when contacting you. We can also often arrange appointments outside of working hours.
