The job of recruitment and employment agencies in Myanmar is to work on behalf of companies to attract and screen prospective employees for a position, and then offer their client shortlisted candidates. Recruitment and employment agencies work in various capacities across all industries. Whether it be unskilled labourers or a CEO for a multinational they are searching for, it is the job of the recruitment agency to follow the brief and source the best candidates possible.

On a day to day basis, an employee in a recruitment agency could be working with a number of different clients.

If the client accepts the candidate, then a fee will be paid to the recruitment or employment agency, normally after a requisite trial period is completed.

But worth it when you find the right candidate for the right job.
