Have you recently been thinking about pursuing a career within Recruitment? The start of the process can be so mind boggling when you know nothing about the industry. What makes a recruitment company good? Do they offer training? What will be expected from me? What is the team like?
Too many adverts do not answer these questions and just list the same "job responsibilities" but don't actually give you a real insight into not only what you will be doing but the company and whether this is the right choice for you. Hopefully this advert will give you a better idea of the role of a Recruitment Consultant.
