What does it take to be a Recruiter?
To be a successful Recruiter and Connector, you need to be responsible and self motivated! Recruitment is a tough but rewarding job, so its important that you have the drive in you to push yourself.
We do not require any specific qualifications or experience; what we value the most is a strong moral compass and be determined to succeed without compromising on ethics! If you have experience in a target driven or outbound calling role, this will be an advantage.
The job is to source and speak to job seekers – on the phone and on video calls all day. So its important you are ready for this. It is not a job for a shy person.
What does the typical day of a Trainee Recruiter look like?
A Recruiter’s day is busy, always! A typical day (if there was such a thing) involves seeking potential candidates using a wide variety of sources and databases, building yourself a strong and wide network. You will be interviewing candidates, getting to know their skills, strengths and motivations, and matching to suitable careers with our clients.
We provide industry leading recruitment training, both initially and throughout your connections career! A recruitment career can change your life. No matter your life goals or motivations, there is a way to achieve them and our management team are here to ensure you can reach your potential.
