Ever thought about a career in recruitment?

If you haven't that's no surprise. Most people who get into recruitment only find out about it through chance or word of mouth. However once in the industry it is a rollercoaster ride of hard work, hitting targets with plenty of rewards along the way and the opportunity to make plenty of money and could be your ideal career.

What is recruitment and what makes somebody a success?

Recruitment is nothing but a direct sales role where you are in effect running your own mini business. You will have responsibility in bringing your own clients on board, maintaining relationships with existing clients and servicing your clients needs when they require additional staff. Your day may include a combination of pro-active sales calls made to both candidate's and clients, lead generation, headhunting or networking for new candidates, arranging interviews, negotiations, delivering and closing offers and much more.

Career opportunities

It is an extremely fast moving and competitive environment and to be a success in the industry you must demonstrate intelligence, a competitive nature, money motivations, determination, resilience and great communication skills.

How much money can you make in recruitment?

That all depends on you and how much work you put in. If you hit your targets in your first year you can expect to see 35k to 50k, 2nd year 70k to 100k and the sky is the limit in the 3rd year. There are also incentive schemes on offer which vary depending on the organisation typically these may include company lunches, holidays abroad and a company car. On top of this recruitment is excellent for career progression with promotions coming in line with you hitting targets.

A typical career path in recruitment consists of trainee recruitment consultant, recruitment consultant, senior consultant, principal consultant, team leader, manager and finally director.
