Recruitment Consultant - Sales Experience Required

Posted 29 January by SW6 Associates Ltd Featured

Have you earned your stripes in a sales role? Are you consistently billing high figures but not seeing good commission? Have you hit a ceiling in your current sales role?

If so, we want to hear from you!

67% of our 2016 placements to date have been people moving into recruitment from sales roles.

Why people make the move from sales into recruitment consultancy?

  • Uncapped commission structures - there is no limit to the money you can earn. The more you bill, the more you take home. And with percentages up to 35% of billings, there’s great money to be made
  • People focus - you are selling, working with, and meeting people (not products or services) on a daily basis
  • Transferable skill set - you have learnt to deal with rejection, cold calling, repetition, negotiations and much more. With these deemed the hard aspects of recruitment, you’ll be hitting the ground running!
  • Career progression - a clear progressive pathway from Trainee to Director/Partner appeals to ambitious individuals
  • Global outreach - with recruitment booming all over the world, you have the opportunity to move internationally at every stage of your career

Why will you make a good recruitment consultant? Recruitment is first and foremost, a sales role, so all the attributes that make you a good sales person will make you a brilliant (and wealthy!) recruiter;

  • Communication skills - you’re used to talking, negotiating and persuading both over the phone and in person
  • Strong work ethic - you’re not afraid of long hours, or tough days if there’s money to be made
  • Money motivation - we’re all in it for the uncapped commission and hefty pay checks!
  • Personality - confident, sociable, hard-working and up for a laugh. You’ll fit right in

So, if you have excelled in a sales role, and are now looking for your next challenge, why not get in touch? We’re always looking to speak to ambitious, hardworking, successful sales people to make the move into recruitment consultancy!
