Paul comes top in UK recruitment qualification

Paul Dinsdale of recruitment specialists, Manpower UK Ltd has hit the right notes by becoming top student in the Recruitment and Employment Confederations Certificate in Recruitment Practice.

Paul, who lives in Birmingham, started his recruitment career as a resourcer and then progressed to consultant before joining Manpower in July 2006 when he says his career really took off. The former music graduate was recently promoted to Contract Manager for one of Manpowers Strategic Clients.

Paul said: I wanted to study the Certificate in Recruitment Practice because although I had the work experience in recruitment, I wanted to have the recognised industry qualification to back that up. I also felt that it would help me to deliver the best possible service to my clients and my candidates.

He said the easiest part of the Certificate was the fact the course was very comprehensive and easy to follow. He was also able to apply what he was learning to his role on a daily basis and so could instantly see the benefit of the course.

Paul said the toughest part of studying while working full-time was staying disciplined as he wanted to complete his study while remaining 100 per cent focused on his day job. He said: I quickly realised the benefits of doing the course, it was easy to stay motivated, Paul said.

He paid tribute to Manpower with whom he said he had been given fantastic opportunities to develop his skills and experience. He is now committed to working in the companys Strategic Client business which he finds personally challenging as he can make a difference to both his Manpower and his client.

Judith Armatage, the RECs Director of Professional Development, said: Our congratulations go to Paul on his wonderful achievement in becoming top student. His is a perfect example of the importance of continuing to develop professionally and how the elements contained in the course corresponded perfectly with his day to day workplace experiences.

Becoming a qualified recruiter does make a significant difference in the current market as not only does it give recruiters more confidence and recognition, it also demonstrates their professionalism and commitment to both clients and candidates.
