How recruitment is similar to a sales role:
  • Recruitment is a fast-paced sales role, where no two days will be the same - the exciting thing being that you'll work with people rather than products meaning that every day will offer new challenges.
  • The key role of a recruiter is to supply client companies with specialist candidates.
  • It's a consultative sales role where you'll work with HR departments at client organizations to advise them on what's happening in the market at the moment.
  • As a recruiter, you'll build a network of specialist professionals that you'll reach out to with relevant career opportunities.
  • As a recruiter, you'll act as an ambassador for your client and a trusted advisor to both your candidate and client.
  • As a recruiter, you'll manage the recruitment experience for both your candidate and client and mediate the offer process.

  • Experience in sales is a bonus although not a requirement.
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills.
  • An ability to work well in a team.
  • Ability to hit constant targets and deadlines.
