You may not have considered recruitment as a potential career, but it can really bring about some fantastic rewards, and great opportunities to progress.

If you’ve been thinking about what you want from your first job, or are considering a complete change of career, here’s why we believe recruitment is a great choice:

Develop great relationships: Whilst it can take a little time at first, by regularly speaking to clients and candidates of all levels and backgrounds you’ll soon build up strong relationships and feel the benefits as you become the first port of call when they need support.

Build your own business: Whether taking on existing clients or starting up new relationships, recruitment allows you to take ownership of your business and progress into new departments, organisations and territories as your relationships progress and your reputation grows. 

Get rewarded: Whilst it’s definitely not the only reason to work in recruitment, it’s one industry where your successes are visible, easily tracked, and have a direct impact on your pay. Quite simply, the better you are, the more you’ll be rewarded.

No two days the same: One day you may be in the office catching up with your candidates, the next you may be travelling to meet clients. Recruitment is anything but predictable!

Grow your knowledge: Thanks to regular conversations, meetings and client visits, you’ll quickly gain a great understanding of the industry you’re working in and what clients and candidates are looking for.

Progress your career: Whether you want to progress into a team leader or management role, or want to move into a senior sales role, there are fantastic opportunities to take your career to the next level.

Life-changing stories: It may seem a little over the top, but a new job really can be life-changing. To be able to give people the opportunity to be placed in their dream job or work all over the world is a real reward in itself - and something not many get to experience.
