Whether we like to admit it or not, one of the longest relationships most of us will have in our lives is with our career. While some people may see work as a means to an end, it is commonly assumed that if you love what you do you will never work a day in your life.
Recruitment is never boring
A career in recruitment is varied and busy; you will spend your time building relationships with a huge array of people. You will constantly be learning and developing; it is rare that two days or situations are ever the same, meaning that even the most experienced consultants will continue to develop their skillsets. The main traits required to be successful in recruitment are communication and resilience, as well as a true passion for the sector.
Working in recruitment gives you the opportunity to progress at a fast pace, with many companies offering structured routes of progression. There are different routes of progression available, depending on what career goals you have, click here to find out more.
Working in recruitment allows you to receive remuneration rewards on top of your basic salary. You are in control of your earnings with commission and bonuses paid based on your performance. There are also various other rewards to be enjoyed in a career in recruitment too. Many companies hold competitions and incentives with winners enjoying days out and holidays.
Make a difference
While we have already discussed the perks of working in recruitment and the rewards you can expect as a successful recruiter, one of the most rewarding aspects of the job is the fact that you are a pivotal element in making a difference. Whether it is advancing someone’s career by introducing them to their perfect role within a company or supporting a client to achieve their wider goals, you are a part of something bigger.
