As a graduate or trainee in recruitment, you'll be learning how to be the intermediary between organisations wishing to recruit (the client) and people seeking a career move or temporary assignment (the candidate).
It's primarily a sales role, and offers great rewards for those that get impressive results.
Your role will include things like:
Amending applicant's CVs
Taking incoming calls and questions
Maintaining the company database
Organising consultant's schedules.
By shadowing more experienced staff, you'll learn on the job and pick up valuable knowledge to help you on your career path.
You could work within an employment agency, where you could specialise in recruiting for a particular industry - say, IT or engineering. Or, you could work in-house within the human resources department of a company, and recruit for internal positions.
You could be dealing with permanent, contract and temporary placements, and finding suitable candidates at a range of different levels.
Your hours will likely run Monday to Friday, 9am - 5pm. Although the role is mainly desk-based, you'll get to meet clients and candidates both on and off site.
