Good recruitment agencies?

Discussion in 'Jobs (Discussion)' started by Line_Grunt, Oct 31, 2002.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Not sure if such a thing exists!  Any good recommendations....... :)

    Depends on what you want to do, many are focussed on specific industries.
  3. Thinking for myself in terms of marketing, project management type of thing.  

    However, the thread was for anybody in any career to post and give a helping hand to those seeking new employment.
  4. Try these L-G:

    lots of useful links including Companies Database, job search, newspaper links, mortgages, housing and more.

    The list is an all rank tri service business and job search directory, started by an ex gunner officer. Consists of a bound book or cd rom published 3 times a year, subscription based. Provides contact, marketing and other details of thousands of members, either in business, or seeking employemnt. Very useful for forming contacts.

    Also the Liquid List, which is an informal network, social and business, for service and former serving forces. Including those now in business of all ranks, they meet on the first Thursday of each month (Not Jan) in a non military environment. Again a fantastic chance to meet potential employers and build contacts etc.

    Aimed mainly at the ex officer, but has useful information for all ranks, CV Tips etc. Again very helpful links and contact numbers for recrutment agencies. Says ex officer, but these agencies will be happy to talk to anyone ex forces, due to the skills they aquired whilst in the forces.

    This one is just for the ex Officers, self explanatory, just look at the web site.

    All of these sites can offer assistance/advice to anyone considering leaving, if you are going to take that step then don't leave things to the last minute, use your time now and all resources available.

    Hope that helps.
  5. Right then.....

    from my extensive trawl through the press and the net i've concluded that there is a lot of crap out there masquerading as recruitment agencies.

    Therefore, the web is the answer:

    Each of the above have loads of jobs on them from many and varied agencies and companies - good hunting ;D

  8. 749

    749 Old-Salt

    in my experience they don't exist
  9. ;D Can recommend Berkeley Scott Group - www.bsg.plc but then I would as my fiancee works for them and she needs to keep her job long enough for me to have found another one!! :eek: Specialise in Hospitality, Marketing, etc.
  10. Agree with 749, they don't exist.  That is until you have relevant experience in an industry.
  11. A_L,

    It is like everything else in soldiering / life - proper prior planning and a damn good recce solves lots of problems.....

    Once you are an agency it all depends how you sell yourself, your skills and your knowledge - you said it in your other post on this part of the forum....


  12. LG, agreed, but I think there are better faster and more efficient ways to find your first job when leaving HMF.

    1.  Networking with friends
    3.  Recruiting fairs
