6 reasons why you should use Cobalt Recruitment for your job search

The job market is highly competitive and people adopt multiple approaches when embarking on a career move. Take charge and work with us to ensure your career goals are managed with you as the number one priority.

1) Interview test run

Like many of our candidates you may have worked in your last role for a number of years so the prospect of selling yourself may not fill you with joy. Some people are more natural than others at highlighting their strengths. When registering with Cobalt Recruitment, we will interview you to discuss your past experience, professional qualifications, educational background; as well as seeking to understand your motivations and ambitions for your own career development. Going through this process with an industry specialist will help you prepare for interviews.

2) Extra advice to help you succeed

We can provide advice on CV writing and interview preparation. We can also assist you with the approach to resignation, as well as offering an insight into the culture, team structure and typical interview methods relevant to the organisation that you are targeting – giving you the best chance of success.

3) A strong first impression

We have in-depth knowledge of our clients’ needs and expectations meaning we can present your details appropriately; highlighting your strengths, whilst explaining any perceived shortcomings, as opposed to leaving this solely to CV interpretation.

4) Access to more roles

Many companies we work with choose not to advertise their roles. So when you are registering with Cobalt, you will access more roles available within the market, giving you greater choice.

5) Insight into the market and realistic salary expectations

We often see frustrated hiring managers who are debating over their decision to recruit due to a person’s unrealistic expectations surrounding their salary. On some occasions, employers may withdraw an offer of a role for this reason.  When working with Cobalt, you can discuss what is a realistic salary rise given your skills, experience and how competitive your market place is before you begin interviewing.

6) We will negotiate for you 

The above point works both ways. Due to our knowledge of the market and our experience of working with property, construction & financial services companies every day, we are in the best position to ensure you are given the right package.
