Research carried out by the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC), which involved polling 1,024 UK adults, found that 72 per cent of respondents who have used the services of a recruitment agency think they project a professional image, with 51 per cent holding this view of recruiters in general.
Over three-quarters of jobseekers who have used a recruitment agency think recruiters play a vital role in helping people find jobs, while three in four respondents who have utilised the services of a recruitment agency in the past said they would use a recruiter again.
The research found that people from all walks of life have used the expert advice offered by recruiters when they need help looking for a new role, with people ranking recruitment consultants more highly than journalists, politicians and estate agents in terms of their professionalism.
Commenting on the findings, Roger Tweedy, REC director of research, said it is a "great foundation" for driving up standards and continuing to improve the reputation of recruitment in the UK.
"Recruitment is often undervalued as a profession but as this poll reveals, people are impressed with the quality of service and professionalism they received from recruiters when they turn to them for help with their job search," he added.
