The UK recruitment industry turns over around £25 billion per year and is a fast paced and exciting industry to work within. It offers many different challenges and can often be very financially rewarding, dependent on the individual success you may have.
The single biggest beauty of this industry is that you have control of your own earnings. Generous commission structures mean reward for your hard work and the resultant placements you make. With Appoint Group, you have the best of both worlds. We offer competitive underlying basic salaries, with the facility to earn uncapped commission and bonuses on top.
In a nutshell, recruitment consultants aim to win business from clients and then match applicants with these clients' vacancies. Upon successful placement, the client would then be charged for your services. The sense of satisfaction from placing a candidate in a role can be significant.
In order to be successful in this sector you must have ambition and confidence combined with tenacity and excellent communication and interpersonal skills. You will be working to pre-set targets, both financial and effort based and you must be driven to achieve these consistently, ideally aiming to exceed them. You must be able to handle the pressure that comes with a target orientated and sales driven role such as this.
This is not a job where you can wait for the business to come in to you. Instead you have to actively go and find the business, find the candidates and make things happen for yourself. The right attitude is paramount to success and without it you will not succeed.
