Recruitment is a profession which attracts a wide range of people, I’ve heard lots of reasons why people chose to join the industry, many say they ‘fell into recruitment’. Although that may be how some of us began our recruitment career, recruitment offers a varied nature of work, rewarding benefits and could be the career for you.
Here are six reasons why a recruitment career is the right choice for you:
1. Great development opportunities & career progression
Extensive training and opportunities to learn from colleagues at your desk help you grow and develop your skills, not just when you’re first starting out, but throughout your recruitment career. These skills matched with hard work and you’ll be on the path towards recognition and progression. If you are a dedicated person and have the right attitude, recruitment is a profession where you can progress quickly.
2. Freedom and support to grow
Running your own recruitment desk is like running your own business. When you’re ready, you will have the opportunity to run your own client and candidate base. You can make your own success, and at the same time share in the success of your recruitment agency as a whole. It’s a great balance of running your own desk, whilst having the support of the wider business.
