    Default Recruitment agencies

    Has anyone used a recruitment agency to get a job before moving to NZ? What do they do exactly and how do they improve your chances of getting a job?

    Yea we used one for a medical job and have nothing but praise. They have arranged one set of references and these full references are supplied with the application. They arranged interviews and support for each and mock interviews etc.

    Plenty of support throughout and after any offers with negotiations in relocation etc. All at no cost to us but the employer of a single fee. I understand this isn't always the case.

    They are on the ground, fit your CV to a job. They aren't going to put their name and reputation on the line. It's a small place and a persons word carries a lot.

    I understand it will depend on the career and specialism. And the reputation of the agency.

    Curious to know too. What part of the medical field are you in? I am in medical imaging and am thinking about moving with my family there. Any information that you could pass along would be appreciated. Good luck. Bryce

    Thanks for your reply! It's great to hear you had a good experience with them. Which agency did you use? Did you have to pay them?
