Recruitment Consultant

Job description

“When I grow up, I want to be a recruiter”, said no one ever.

Let’s be honest, when we were younger, we wanted to be an astronaut, a footballer, a popstar, a prime minister… okay maybe not the last one, but no one ever grows up with the burning desire to enter the recruitment world. With this said, those who enter it and do well, can do incredibly well.

Coming out of University, it’s not uncommon to be unsure on your career path. Believe me, we’ve all been there! Our advice would be to make a checklist of what motivates you and what you want to get from a career, rather than making a list of potential jobs… If your checklist matches the below, then maybe recruitment is for you:

  • Money motivated (Work in a role where I can dictate my own earnings. If I work harder, I will earn more)
  • Fast progression (I’d like the opportunity to perform and progress into management and above in a short amount of time)
  • Competitive environment (I’d like to work with likeminded, motivated and ambitious people, within a competitive environment so we can get the best out of each other)
  • Work with People (I’d like to be in contact and working with ‘people’ every day to build relationships. I’m also a social butterfly and would love to have fun with my colleagues)
  • Fast paced, with highs and lows (I’d like every day to be different, with amazing highs and challenging lows where I have to show resilience to keep on going
  • Challenge (I want genuine challenge. I’d like to work in a role where I challenge my abilities and my character, with the aim of overcoming them to be successful)

A career in recruitment can be an extremely rewarding one, but that doesn’t come before hard work.
“The only place success comes before work is in the dictionary” Vince Lombardi

There are countless industry sectors and levels of recruitment at your fingertips.
