What do recruiters actually do?
A Recruitment Consultant’s role is extremely varied. They work as marketeers, advertisers, networkers, problem solvers, interviewers and negotiators, all in a single day!
As a Recruitment Consultant, your main role is to find the perfect match between candidate and employer. Candidates can be found in many different locations, and there is no knowing where the perfect candidate may be hiding. It’s up to you to engage them and gain their trust, to allow you to place them in the perfect role.
A candidate may be looking for a role closer to home or an increase in pay; you need to earn their trust and respect for them to tell you this information. This will allow you to place them in the right role. Once you have identified a potential match, a Recruitment Consultant will advise both the candidates and employers on salary, training, benefits and other practicalities.
“The STR Group offers a superb platform to grow both personally and professionally against clearly defined milestones to become either a top biller or transcend into management. Recruitment in general is fast paced, challenging and offers accelerated earning potential well ahead of other careers for those willing to excel.”
