Legal job searching

Why do you want to go into recruitment?

  1. High remuneration

There are strong financial incentives for performance, meaning talented recruiters can be very well remunerated. The more successful you are in delivering the recruitment solutions clients need – and hitting your targets – the better you’ll be rewarded.

  1. Progression opportunities

Top performers can advance quickly into more senior leadership roles. This is an industry in which professionals are judged on performance – not by time served or waiting for the next rung in the ladder coming available

  1. A whole new challenge

Not everyone can thrive as a recruitment consultant. You need to be an independent-minded self-starter, have a high level of confidence and developed communication and influencing skills. It also pays to be driven, creative, flexible and resilient. The job can be challenging, but there can be immense job satisfaction – in addition to the extrinsic rewards – when you successfully find someone a new career opportunity or help a company in its growth agenda.

Recruitment consultants have a multi-faceted role. They work as marketers, networkers, problem solvers, interviewers and negotiators as they strive to find the perfect match between job seeker and employer. There’s no telling where the perfect candidate may be hiding – it’s the recruiter’s job to find them, get them engaged, and assess their suitability for the role.

What is your best achievement to date?

 Creating my own company during university is definitely on my list. Within my role, I achieve the innovation that is necessary to be relevant in tomorrow’s marketplace by devising strategic marketing and sales plans to improve client’s revenues, market share, and profitability. Helping a local business scale up and compete with national giants is a great feeling. HOWEVER, I believe my biggest achievement is yet to come. I am always looking to achieve more tomorrow than I did today and constantly striving to improve myself all the time.
