Recruitment offers a wide range of opportunities for those who are looking for a challenging career. It has become one of the fastest growing sectors within business in the UK, with people now considered highly valued assets within any successful business. This means clients seeking excellent candidates are willing to pay premium prices to ensure they have the best possible staff within their organisation.
The benefits of a recruitment career
A career in recruitment is fast paced, dynamic and challenging. A large number of people look at a career in recruitment because of the high earning potential, and there is no denying that recruitment can be incredibly rewarding in terms of earnings. Many recruitment positions have a basic salary and a generous commission structure that is often uncapped.
Recruitment also offers prospects for quick progression; depending on what divisions you work in. However, it isn’t for everyone. If you aren’t self-motivated, target driven and passionate about people, then it probably isn’t for you. Working as a Recruitment Consultant means you need to be hard working, dedicated to getting results and able to multi-task and sell on every level of business. If this sounds like you, then maybe you should be choosing recruitment as your career.
Another attractive element of recruitment is that you are in control of your career development and can directly influence your success by working hard and achieving your targets. Your candidates and clients will become like your own business. So, as you gain experience in the industry and build up your own database through resourcing and networking, you will in effect be your own boss.
