Being unemployed is a scary and often disheartening experience, especially if you are well-skilled in what you do. For those in the construction industry there never seems to be “job security” as these projects can take just a few weeks and then it’s time to look for another one.
So what can you do to take control of your career and ensure you are employed always? One plan is to join with one of the many construction employment agencies out there that will work on your behalf finding you a job.
Get the Inside Scoop
Part of finding a job knows where when to look. For instance, did you know at any given time there are up to 360 excavator operator vacancies in the local area? The average person isn’t going to know this information, nor will they know who is actually hiring for these positions. And it’s not just excavator jobs, finding general groundwork jobs can be just as daunting and tiring.
This is where these construction employment agencies really shine. There are experienced companies out there that give you the benefit of the connections they have in the industry that help workers out. Think of it as networking if you will. A recruitment agency is basically a giant networking pool that gives you access to all the latest job opportunities.
It doesn’t matter if you are looking for temporary work or permanent work these agencies have access to the information.
Protecting You and the Employer
As a skilled professional, you can join with an agency any time you like. Besides helping you to find a job quickly and easily, there are also other benefits. When working through an agency you are guaranteed fair pay. You won't have to worry about being undercut, as the agency won't send you into this type of situation.
As well as that, they only deal with professional construction companies, so you know you will be dealing with a reputable employer. The particular recruitment agency isn’t just vetting you they are also vetting the company. They set up these “perfect matches” taking all the worries and stress off the two parties involved.
If you are looking for training opportunities, these recruitment agencies can be an excellent source of information. There are some companies who offer a variety of weekend and weekday courses so you can further your skills and your job opportunities.
