Martin Crines at Jenson Fisher was the perfect recruitment partner for us when we recruited our new Head of Finance. He quickly got to the heart of what we needed in the role - both in terms of skills and experience and personality and attitude. He worked hard to understand our needs, our direction of travel and what I needed from the working dynamic. As a result he assembled a terrific shortlist and quite rightly predicted the person that we ultimately appointed. That appointment has been very positive with follow up support offered by Martin to both me and the newly appointed employee. I'd happily work with him again.

Nothing will communicate your value and potential to recruiters and employers more than your LinkedIn profile. In recent times, it has become a sort of CV. Knowing how important LinkedIn has become, it is important to update your data on the platform. This means you must be aware of what you need to add and what is not necessary.
It has probably been a while since you last updated the information on your profile or you don’t even have a profile in the first place. If you do not have a profile then it is a good time to create a profile. You need this digital profile to announce to interested parties of the things you can do. It is a platform that can allow you to show everyone your skills, training, and what you can bring to the table if you are hired. It is a chance for you to set yourself apart from others.
There are ten steps that you must follow to make the best of your LinkedIn profile. You must communicate to potential employers and recruiters that you are skilled in your career and that you are keen on details. It will also help if you portray yourself as a professional. You must show seriousness.
The first thing about your profile must be that it is thorough and complete. A professional profile must not look shabby as it passes a message that you can easily be distracted or that you see things through. You must have a complete profile that details your training and previous work experience. LinkedIn can help you to know how strong your profile is and can suggest how to make it better.
You should avoid terrible headlines. Your headline on LinkedIn is where you show off your talents and potentials. It should differentiate you from other profiles. It is also an opportunity to define your vision and the type of opportunities that you want on LinkedIn.
If you are looking to be hired through LinkedIn then you must provide a means to contact you easily. There should be a clear and easy means of contact on your profile. You must provide an email or phone number that will be used to reach you. This not only betters your chances but it also makes you appear serious and professional.
Blow your trumpet a little. Share your accomplishments on your profile generously. You need to do this because recruiters want to know that you have achieved things in the past. These can include your qualifications, awards, completed projects, and the professional events that you have attended.
Your picture might just be the most eye-catching thing about your profile. Potential employers and recruiters can judge your personality from your picture.
You can use short videos, photos, and even PowerPoint that showcases your expertise and skills. This also indicates that you are in tune with the time and you are tech-savvy which is good for you.
Always share content on your profile. This helps you to show the recruiter or employer that you know what you are doing. It is a good way to let them know that you are a round peg in a round hole.
What good things do your colleagues and clients have to say about you? Well, you should include their praise and endorsements on your profile. Reviews and endorsements communicate that there is something valuable about you.
If you have put your profile in place then it is time for you to come up with a schedule that helps you keep your profile updated. Share articles and content, share your new experiences, and even add your new qualifications always.
The steps above are the easiest way to have a powerful LinkedIn profile that will attract recruiters and potential employers.
