Jobs in Recruitment Edinburgh


What is recruitment?

Edinburgh is a highly diverse city with new job roles being created every day. Currently, the quantity of high-growth companies in Scotland is increasing faster than anywhere else in the United Kingdom. This is largely down to the low costs of setting up a business in Scotland. With all of these new job roles being created, recruitment consultants are in high demand in Edinburgh. To be a successful rec to rec recruitment consultant you need to have exceptional communication skills and be an excellent sales person. This is because it's essential to develop a bond with businesses and convince them that you and your recruitment consultancy is the consultancy to turn to when they are looking to fill a position at their company. To find a suitable candidate, for your client, may sometimes involve finding potential candidates who aren't actively looking for a new job. Likewise, you may sometimes be required to approach businesses, which aren't currently looking for employees, and convince them that you have a candidate who they can't afford to miss out on. It's essential that recruitment consultants have a solid understanding of both the companies and the industries that they are recruiting for. This is so that they can find a suitable candidate for the position. Being able to utilise online recruitment platforms and professional networks, such as LinkedIn, is now vital if you aspire to be a leading recruitment consultant.

Why a career in recruitment?

The recruitment sector offers competitive salaries, lots of training and various different career opportunities. For these reasons a career in recruitment has become a popular choice with people who are looking for a career change along with graduates looking for an exciting line of work. The commission that is on offer means that if you put the work and hours in you will be rewarded. Hard workers can also progress fairly quickly if they dedicate themselves to the role. A job in recruitment can provide the variety that some people thrive off. You get to work with different businesses, different industries and different people. However, you need to ensure you keep on top of the different sectors you recruit for so that you can react to the different market conditions. No two days are the same in rec to rec recruitment. One day you could be working at your desk, other meeting businesses and the next attending open days, to attract the best possible candidates for your clients. The feeling of satisfaction when you successfully place a candidate in their dream role is also something that is hard to match.
