What is a Recruitment Consultant?

A typical recruiting consultant assists employers select and recruit staff for their vacancies, and help individuals find and gain employment or even work experience. Recruiting consultants are in high demand these days as recruitment in general is an extremely competitive and growing market. Despite this, many get a bad reputation perhaps due to the persistent and persuasive nature required to be a consultant. Part of the job requires cold calling in order to get clients and candidates and it can be a useful technique. GRO.TEAM are different however, we are not just a recruitment agency. Our talent acquisition team source the best people and find most suitable candidate for the the company and focus on internal recruitment. Why? We believe that matching internal candidates with the roles that fit the personality and skills can be more beneficial as it is likely they will stay at the company for a while and increases the employee retention. It can also save time and money on training as the employee will be familiar with the organisation and culture and have some relevant experience. Internal hiring is also beneficial for business development for the same reasons.

Recruitment consultancy is also a great opportunity for career progression of the individual as well as the growth of the business. It isn’t an easy job though, candidates require a great deal of enthusiasm and dedication to their work as well as the necessary skills. Building relationships with clients, headhunting and screening and interviewing are just a short few of the many responsibilities of the job. Having a competitive yet amiable working environment though is part of what makes the job desirable as well.

Is being a Recruitment Consultant a good career?

In most sectors, a typical recruiter in the UK will normally earn 30-35% of what they bill annually. The percentage is made up of their basic salary, commission and any quarterly or annual bonuses/reconciliations

Enthusiastic candidates can see themselves earn a hefty commission but it also requires good sales skills and confidence. Career progression is definitely an advantage of the industry.

Have you heard of a job where you can get promoted three times in a year? Chances are you have not, yet it can happen in recruitment.

Clear targets make progression easily achievable if you are willing to knuckle down, and why not when you can add to your salary. Despite being a sales environment, the job entails helping candidates secure the job they have been hoping for, and that can be very rewarding too.

International travel and other incentives such as paid meals and trips are on the table for consultants that do exceptionally well too, as it can be part of job, but most are national based. Strictly speaking it is definitely a good career but it highly depends on the person and whether they are willing to put in the hours and the hard work.

Whether you need them temporarily or permanently we can find exactly what you’re looking for…quickly…with no fuss…wherever you need them…
