Real talk, recruitment is a fast-paced industry that keeps even the most seasoned of professionals on their toes. However, the perks of recruitment are many, ranging from excellent earning potential to multiple avenues for career progression.
As an award-winning agency, our relationship with recruitment remains stronger than ever - spanning over 30 years to be exact! In an industry known for low job satisfaction rates, nearly 30% of our exceptional employees have been with us for over 5 years!
We highlight all the reasons why we love recruitment, and why you should consider launching or developing your career at Search.
6 Best Perks of Recruitment
1. Work with people from all walks of life
As a Consultant at Search, you won't be chained to your desk all day, but will instead have the opportunity to meet a wide range of interesting individuals from a range of diverse cultures and backgrounds.
An important part of the role is meeting with clients to discuss the requirements they have, as well as attending events and networking to secure new business. You would also be meeting with candidates to determine their suitability for a role. You could be recruiting for a range of positions from entry level to industry leaders, which also opens you up to meeting a wide variety of people.
2. Show me the money
As a sales-orientated industry, the financial rewards are fantastic! As a result of meeting targets you will more than likely earn fantastic bonuses on top of an already great salary. In fact, here at Search, commission is uncapped, and we give our Recruitment Consultants the opportunity to earn commission on every placement you make.
3. The role of trusted advisor
As a Recruitment Consultant, you must be on hand to help candidates grow and develop as professionals in their field of expertise. This involves offering advice on anything from interview preparation to courses they can take to develop their skills. Furthermore, clients will also seek your advice in terms of growing their workforces with the right people. Recruitment Consultants must facilitate this by recommending the best way to brand themselves as an employer and attract the right talent. They are also regularly asked to advise on average salaries for the specific roles they recruit for.
4. Rewards for hard work
There's a lot of hard work that goes into recruitment, but the rewards are totally worth it! For instance, as a Recruitment Consultant at Search you can not only expect to receive significant financial rewards, but also a wealth of company incentives - from annual award ceremonies to quarterly high flyer events. You will also experience the joy of knowing you played an active role in helping change someone’s life for the better.
5. The sky is the limit as far as your career is concerned
Provided you put the hard work and dedication into your role, and have the results to show for it, the sky is the limit when it comes to developing your career in the industry. Not to toot our own horn, but here at Search we actually recognise potential to succeed in the industry, and as such pride ourselves in the first class training we give to all our Recruitment Consultants across the business.
Case in point, a number of our senior management team started out as Consultants and have worked their way up through the ranks. If you have a strong work ethic and the desire to succeed, then we will support you in climbing the career ladder.
6. Work hard, play hard
Real talk, a job in recruitment involves hard work determination and passion. However, with numerous networking opportunities, awards, client and candidate events, along with a strong bond with your team and peers, you will undoubtedly play just as hard as you work. Here at Search, we certainly live by the 'Work Hard, Play Hard' mantra.
