5 great reasons to register with On Target Recruitment

By: Steve Oldroyd

It’s a tough world out there!

And it can be even tougher to get the job you really want – the one with the company you’ve always aspired to, or the one that will allow you to fully utilise all your skills and give you the responsibility you crave. It’s not that you haven’t got what it takes to succeed in the role, but getting that first interview can be a challenge – unless you have a good recruitment consultancy working on your behalf.

So why choose On Target?

1. We’re specialists in your sector

Any agency worth its salt will have an in-depth understanding and knowledge of its clients and market sectors. At On Target we specialise in sales, technical and commercial jobs, recruiting across Engineering, Construction, Medical and Business Solutions – no more, no less. We’ve been building up our teams and contacts network around this offer since 1994, and it means absolute focus and expertise as a result.

2. Our unique database

Our bespoke database covers the whole of the UK and it is integral to our work in matching ideal candidates with job vacancies. You don’t even have to be actively looking for a new position – we will still contact you if an opportunity comes along that could be perfect for you.

3. Strong client relationships and industry knowledge

We know our market sectors well – the well established companies, exciting new businesses that are rising, and the key people within them. We have developed an excellent reputation amongst employers (some of our candidates subsequently become clients) and they rely on On Target to find high calibre candidates that are a perfect fit for their company. Our ability to do this is based on deep understanding of our clients’ businesses and developing strong relationships – for many, this level of trust and knowledge means On Target becomes their first port of call and we often know of vacancies before they are on the open market. And our insight into a particular business can give you that all-important edge over other candidates to ensure you stand out from the crowd in interview.

4. Our consultants are proactive

We pride ourselves on reducing the typical length of the recruitment process – a real and commercial advantage for our clients, but good for our candidates too. It means that your CV won’t be languishing at the bottom of a growing pile, you won’t be left waiting to know how you got on at your latest interview and, if there’s an offer on the table, you can be confident that we’re doing everything we can to secure it for you.

We know a strong candidate when we see one. Even if there are no current vacancies to suit your criteria when you register with us, we can open the right doors for you because of our strong network of industry contacts. And we’ll champion you at every step. We believe strongly in getting to know the candidates we work with, so with On Target you can be confident that we will ‘sell’ your capabilities, we’ll discuss your strengths with a prospective employer before you’ve even met them – in essence, we will do everything we can to create ideal opportunities for you to shine.

5. And it’s free!

You can pay CV writers to transform how yours is presented, you can find coaches who will help you perform better at interview, you can pay a fee to join networking groups. But at On Target these things will cost you absolutely nothing. Struggling to express yourself well in your CV? We’ll help you. Get nervous in an interview situation? We’ll prepare you. Keen to work for a specific company? We’ll know who to talk to. And the market information we can share with you is priceless. At On Target, it’s not just about matching candidates to likely jobs, it’s about helping you fulfill your professional potential.

Why not call one of our consultants on 020 8397 4114 for an informal chat or email your CV to info@otrsales.co.uk. It could be the start of something exciting!
