What does a Graduate Recruitment Consultant do?
A recruitment consultant works with clients to help them find the best candidates for employment at their company. As a recruitment consultant you will search for potential employees, screen them and match them to available job positions. You will create a recruiting strategy and work with clients and candidates from the sourcing stage up until the ideal candidate is hired.
As a recruitment consultant you will be working closely with both clients and job applicants, so strong interpersonal and communication skills are a must. Experience in the recruiting or human resources field is a plus. A bachelor's degree in Human Resources, Marketing or a relative field is required. You must also be familiar with recruiting and sourcing techniques, including the use of software and social media.
