Why Recruitment and What Makes the Ideal Trainee Recruitment Consultant?
Last year the Recruitment Market was worth £222 Billion and is growing year on year. The recruitment industry is renowned for offering high earning potential and fast track career progression and as a result a career in recruitment is an attractive proposition for many highly success driven, ambitious people.
The achievement within the recruitment industry is clearly defined and not subjective, allowing people to progress through the ranks of seniority as quickly as they deserve to. We place a great deal of importance on promotion from within and look to reward employees with promotion early in accordance to success as opposed to seniority.
The role itself is incredibly challenging and the trainee will be expected to develop highly profitable working relationships with candidates and clients often at a high level of seniority and constantly meet sales targets. In order to excel within this environment, you must be a competitive, money motivated, persuasive, resilient and success driven individual with an engaging personality and a professional outlook towards their career.
We are not looking for trainees from specific backgrounds, it more about your attitude and personality.
