Recruitment as a Career Path

A career in recruitment offers a fast paced, results orientated, people focused role, where essentially, the success you achieve is determined by you. When starting out in recruitment it’s crucial to choose the right consultancy – it’s very important to work in a high achieving team that shares your values and provides the very best experience for clients and candidates. Success for us means really getting to know our clients and candidates in detail, putting their interests first and delivering success for them.

If you have done any research about entering the recruitment market, it will be clear to you that recruitment consultants come from every educational and career background. In most cases they didn’t initially set out to become a recruiter and entered the recruitment industry after having been on a different career path which didn’t fulfil them.

This job is not for everyone, however it could be the perfect role for you if you are a determined individual with a positive and competitive outlook; success can happen very quickly and there is always something new to learn.

The recruitment industry has evolved significantly over the last 10 years, and at Hunter Savage we believe very strongly that the future of our industry is in delivering niche services that add value to our clients. As technology develops, clients will do more for themselves, and to remain competitive we must always aspire to deepen our knowledge of our networks in our niche sectors to develop relationships and reach candidates that are unique to us.

When we are recruiting, we always look for candidates with an excellent interpersonal skillset, intelligence, personal credibility, work ethic, and an inner drive/need to be successful.
