As a recruitment consultant, you’re the vital link between clients and candidates. The role is demanding, diverse and involves:

  • using sales, business development, marketing techniques and networking to attract business from client companies.
  • visiting clients to build and develop positive relationships with them.
  • developing a good understanding of client companies, their industry, what they do, their work culture and environment.
  • using social media to advertise positions, attract candidates and build relationships.
  • headhunting – identifying and approaching suitable candidates who may already be in work.
  • using candidate databases to match the right person to the client’s vacancy.
  • receiving and reviewing applications, managing interviews and tests, and creating a shortlist of candidates for the client
  • requesting references and checking the suitability of applicants before submitting their details to the client
  • briefing the candidate about the responsibilities, salary, and benefits of the job in question
  • preparing CVs and correspondence to forward to clients regarding suitable applicants.
  • organising interviews for candidates as requested by the client.
  • informing candidates about the results of their interviews
  • negotiating pay and salary rates and finalising arrangements between client and candidates
  • offering advice to both clients and candidates on pay rates, training, and career progression.
  • working towards and exceeding targets that may relate to the number of candidates placed, a value to be billed to clients or business leads generated.
  • Reviewing recruitment policies to ensure effectiveness of selection techniques and recruitment programmes.

What to expect

The role can be challenging, but also exciting as the profession is fast-paced, target driven and demanding.
