Graduate Scheme - What does a Recruitment Consultant do?

You will essentially be a global head-hunter, finding talent and people and the best companies to place them in across the globe.

With your Clients you will be:

- Cold calling

- Finding out hiring needs

- Arranging meetings

- Developing relationships

- Negotiating terms

You will then headhunt and find the Candidates to fill these roles by…

- Sourcing Candidates through job advertisements, LinkedIn, networking events, etc.

- Interviewing and screening Candidates

- Matching Candidates with what they are looking for to what your Clients are looking for

- Ensuring Candidates are well prepared for their interviews

Throughout, you will manage the process between both parties. When you successfully place Candidates into your Client’s businesses you will be rewarded in commission.
