We all love the holiday season and of course, we all like receiving gifts on Christmas day. Most Christmas gifts are the expected, a pair of socks from your grandad or a new jumper from your mum. However, every now and again you get that perfect unexpected gift, the gift that you didn’t request and didn’t even know you wanted. The gift that is so thoughtful and personable to you, often gifted to you by your favourite Aunt or Uncle that makes Christmas truly memorable and magical. 

A good recruiter can be like that favourite aunt that gives you the perfect present. When that aunt, or uncle, finds that perfect present it doesn’t happen by accident. They find the perfect gift by genuinely listening to you and taking an interest in your likes and dislikes. They are invested in your best interests and want to work hard at picking the right gift for you instead of simply finding the best Black Friday deal or finding something that is a quick delivery on Amazon.  

When looking for a new role there are all sorts of recruiters out there “gifting” different roles, but how much do they know about you?  When working with a recruiter you want to be looking for that person who will take the time to understand your aspirations, listen, advise and consult. They can often provide you with the role that you didn’t realise you wanted, the perfect gift that you hadn’t asked for.

If you'd like a surprise this Christmas or are interested in exchanging your position after the break, we are always happy to help and look forward to giving you the perfect gift.
