Being a Recruiter

Recruitment is not an easy job. Statistically, 80% of people who enter the recruitment industry fail in the first 2 years. It’s tough being a recruiter. But for those individuals that thrive in a fast-paced environment then working in a recruitment agency could be the best job for you. Get to know more about our team at Brite Recruitment.

There are not a lot of successful recruiters out there. Being an average, mediocre recruiter is not enough to survive in the recruitment industry. The job is hard, with many disappointments. But you have to overcome these challenges to become a great recruiter. For those few individuals who enjoy the pressures involved with recruiting, working in a recruitment agency is the coolest job in the world. But why?

Recruiting is a Win-Win-Win
Unlike most commercial transactions, recruiting is not a win or lose scenario. For example, when selling a car, one person aims for the highest price, while the other bargains for the lowest price. One person will feel as if they ‘won’ the bid. In recruitment this is not the case. In a recruiter’s scenario everybody wins. Happy client, happy candidate, happy recruiter. There is something intensely rewarding about doing a job where everyone is happy with the outcome.

Make Good Things Happen
Another great part about being a recruiter means you can create great outcomes.

  • Scenario 1 - The candidate may be reluctant to go on an interview. Through your influencing skills they go along, do fantastically well, love the job, and get hired!
  • Scenario 2 - The client won’t see your top talent because of something they spotted in the CV. You persist, explaining the person is better than the paper. The client relents and your talent gets the job and even gets promoted!

It Matters
Everyone needs a job and every business needs employees. Therefore, being a recruiter matters. Recruitment agencies do not have the best reputation and often it can be deserved. But we are here to help people find jobs. That’s a good thing! It’s something a recruiter can be proud of. It makes an impact. We change people’s lives. We solve companies staffing issues. We help people further their career ambitions. It’s fantastic!

It’s Measurable
Not everyone likes to have targets to meet and statistics to follow. But some people enjoy the fact that recruitment is so measurable. If you have the right temperament, you will thrive in this competitive environment. Recruiters love the fact that you can measure yourself against your competitors and colleagues, and revel in the transparency of fee-tables and pay-by-results.

Own Your Market
If you have longevity, maintain integrity, deliver service and outcomes then you can elevate yourself to a true trusted advisor. All your work becomes exclusive and all your candidates come via referrals and commendations The clients treat you with respect and seek your advice.

When it all boils down, what all of us want from a great job is just two things: fun and money. If you’re a great recruiter, you’ll get lots of both. The fun of winning, the fun of finding people jobs, the fun of working in a job that counts.

She also ran the London Marathon on the behalf of The Miscarriage Association in 2012.
