If we are promised a period of exclusivity from our clients it means we are able to ensure your vacancy is given priority over other roles we are working on. We can do this as we know we have the opportunity to approach candidates with something unique, which our competitors don’t yet know about.
Typically a client might afford us a week or two exclusivity - which means we are under time pressure to deliver before it goes out to our competition. This is a benefit to the client as they’ll ideally see good CVs coming across relatively quickly without being tied to using us only for the duration of the assignment. Another benefit is that you avoid duplication where the same CVs may be sent by multiple agencies and, of course, you only have one agency to communicate with, leaving you to get on with all the other things you need to do.
