What Is A Recruitment Agency?

What Is A Recruitment Agency?

A recruitment agency, or employment agency, can help you to find a job; permanent or temporary, full-time or part-time.

The way they work is, employers looking for new staff will contact recruitment agencies when they are seeking candidates for a specific position.
