If you’re keen to get a seasonal job via a recruitment agency in Ulverston, you need a strategy. Our guide will help you to secure that perfect seasonal role.
Firstly, identify suitable recruiters by using online searches, the phone directory, contacts and even a walk up and down the high street. Most local jobs will be handled by a similarly local recruitment agency in Ulverston, but others may be centralised elsewhere, so be thorough in your search.
Next, send an application to the recruiter in advance using their online facility if appropriate. Always follow it up with a phone call and try to go in to see the recruiter in person if possible. The best jobs will often go to the candidates that the recruiter has met and feels confident about.
Remember that recruiters represent their clients and will be assessing you when you contact them or go in for a visit. To be on the safe side, it is worth treating a meeting with a recruiter in the same way that you would treat an interview. You need to show off your skills, presentation and attributes to their best advantage. Also make sure you are personable and presentable.
Be prepared to talk through your CV, particularly areas specifically relevant to seasonal jobs, such as those associated with bar staff, silver-service waiting, chambermaid roles, customer service jobs, kitchen staff or administration. A recruitment agency in Ulverston specialising in these areas may wish to test some of these skills with practical assessments.
Be tenacious in your search and show that you are flexible and on the ball. Sign up to email job alerts and follow social media accounts for the latest job releases. Be ready to attend interviews at short notice.
Remember that you will be paid by the recruiter if you take on temporary assignments with them, so ensure you have the necessary paperwork to hand. This includes your P45 (if applicable), passport or other form of identification, bank details, National Insurance (NI) number and any other documents specified. You must also be ready to demonstrate your right to work in the UK if applicable.
