What's recruitment consulting all about?

Are you considering a recruitment career as a specialist consultant?

Recruitment careers are all about having a passion for people, excellent communication skills and a great work ethic.

To be a successful recruitment consultant you need to have the ability to understand the needs and wants of your customer’s business, coupled with an in depth knowledge of their culture and workplace environment - and then be able to match these fundamental requirements to the skills, experience and personalities of prospective candidates. 

People who excel in recruitment jobs tend to have a combination of recruitment, account development and account management skills.

Typical daily duties as a recruitment consultant are:

  • Proactively engaging your client base with recommendations on top talent
  • Sourcing candidates through business contacts, direct recruiting, existing databases and advertising
  • Prospecting for new client business and building strong focussed networks.
  • Developing plans to accomplish weekly, monthly and quarterly business growth goals with your team.
