Working in recruitment…What’s all the fuss about?

Some of the greatest recruiters ‘fell’ into recruitment while reaching for a different career goal.  Some took it up as a temporary gig only to end up going the distance, while others chose recruitment purely to fulfil their need to genuinely help people.  So, what is it about recruitment that attracts so many people from all walks of life?

Unlimited Earning Potential

Unsurprisingly one of the biggest pulls of the industry is the opportunity to earn uncapped commission alongside a competitive base salary. When it comes to earnings the only limit is your mind set so if you’re tenacious, have the skills to really connect with people, and are highly target driven you could reap significant rewards. With graduate and entry level jobs notorious for offering low starting salaries, recruitment’s impressive earning potential can be particularly attractive to those fresh out of university or seeking a career change. 

Great Development Opportunities

Training and development is the engine that powers the industry - from your very first day you will have the chance to work alongside experienced consultants and develop your skills. Promotion is based on performance, not length of service, so with the right attitude and a willingness to learn new skills you can progress your career at breakneck speed.

Freedom

Working in recruitment gives you complete autonomy over your own client base and candidate pools, encourages out the box thinking and is a great environment to build your management skills. A lot of people dream of being their own boss but the risk of starting a business is deemed too high; recruitment offers the best of both worlds and is a fantastic training ground to flex your entrepreneurial muscles.

The chance to make an impact

It’s widely believed that recruitment is solely sales orientated; however in reality there’s far more to it than that. Working in recruitment gives you the opportunity to change a person’s life by helping them secure a job they really want. It’s about forming great relationships so that you can help them navigate what can sometimes be a difficult journey. What’s more, the relationship between a consultant and their candidate doesn’t just dissipate once a job has been secured; consultants continue to reach out to find out how their candidates are settling in, and ensure they continue to feel confident in their career choices.
