Where do we start? The recruitment industry is a dynamic, fast changing market with annual revenues of over £30bn in the UK alone. With a diverse mix of business types from global multi-nationals to small, market specialist start-ups, the recruitment sector provides a rich range of career opportunities and can handsomely reward commitment and success.
1. Good recruiters can earn excellent money and have fantastic benefits. The very good ones earn excellent money and have fantastic benefits. The exceptional ones can earn 6 figures and often go on to create their own businesses and earn even more. It’s also an incredibly entrepreneurial sector, so you can either enjoy the benefits of working for a large corporate, or you can progress your career by joining the long list of founder-managed start-ups and grow your own future wealth and destiny.
2. The job satisfaction can be immense. Helping your candidates get great jobs and watching their careers blossom and, on the other side of the coin, seeing your clients recruit great candidates and watching their business prosper as a result – that’s what pays the bills and, gives a great buzz.
Just like any other sector, it’s important to get it right when deciding which recruitment consultancy to join. Who will invest to best develop your potential and who will be the ‘best fit’ for your personality and ideal specialism?
