What is recruitment?Recruitment involves:
  • Liaising with clients about their open vacancies
  • Posting job adverts to attract candidates
  • Sourcing candidates using job boards like Indeed, Reed and Totaljobs
  • Speaking to candidates about their job requirements and the opportunities you have available
  • Putting candidates forward for interviews with clients and coaching them through the process
  • Feeding back to candidates following interviews
  • Processing offers
  • Making commission
How does commission work?Every time you make a placement, you'll earn a fee - this is usually based on a percentage of the salary your candidate will receive.For example: If you place someone in a role that pays £25,000, you'll make a fee of £5,000 (20%). The way commission works is that you'll then receive a percentage of the £5,000 you've earned for your business - so if you're working with an uncapped commission structure, you can realistically earn £45,000 in commission in your first year (and that's not including your basic salary!).
Sounds great, what's the catch?Recruitment is a tough job and it's not for everyone. Here are some of the key things you'll need if you want to do well in recruitment:
  • Confidence - recruitment is a people-driven business, so you'll need to enjoy and embrace speaking to people on a daily basis
  • Resilience - there will be days when nobody will answer the phone, candidates won't show up for interviews and you won't get the news you were hoping for after a candidate's interview - you'll need to be able to manage your expectations and bounce back quickly, in order to keep going and move onto the next!
  • Motivation - everyone wants to earn more money, but what will drive you to go the extra mile? Are you saving for a house, a car or thinking about getting an expensive pet? These are all great things to keep you motivated and keeping your eye on the potential commission you could be earning
If you're looking for your next challenge, and you know you're capable of more, apply today and we'll be in touch with you as soon as possible!
