Recruitment Consultants source candidates and match them to jobs that their clients are trying to fill.
The job relies heavily on sales and account management - consultants need to win new business from potential clients and provide those clients with a high level of service by sourcing the best possible candidates for their roles.
The role also requires involvement at all levels of the recruitment process, including writing the job specifications, advertising the jobs, interviewing candidates and providing the client with a shortlist of candidates for each job. It's essential that consultants gain a thorough understanding of their clients' businesses so that they fully understand the type of candidate that is required for each job.
There are no formal qualification requirements to become a recruitment consultant though some employers will require you to be degree educated. Experience in a similar job is usually the main requirement. It is possible to gain individual membership of the REC and this will stand out on your CV.
