Six reasons why you should consider a career in recruitment

If you are thinking of changing your career, then recruitment is definitely worth considering. It is a career that many overlook, but it is exciting, challenging and interesting, as well as personally and financially rewarding. 

It is a major industry sector
The recruitment industry has an annual UK turnover of over £20 billion and employs almost 100,000 people, therefore contributes significantly to the UK economy. However, its real value is actually much more... 

Help shape the economy of the UK
A recruitment agency helps shape the future of the whole economy by providing a range of professional services to people and companies across many job functions and industry sectors.

Your aim as a recruitment consultant is to successfully guide individuals through their career and assist companies to add real value to their business. In summary, your placements help to deliver a successful UK economy by enabling other sectors to generate income, through the right people being placed in the right roles to allow companies to benefit.

Become a unique talent scout in a diverse and challenging environment 
The job is arguably one of the most diverse within the business world. It is fast paced, exciting, competitive, challenging and very rewarding. Your role is that of a talent scout, trying to identify and uncover qualities and potential in people to flourish in the right environment.

Help enhance peoples’ lives and companies to grow 
A recruitment consultant comes with a high degree of responsibility as you directly influence futures - you have the opportunity to change lives for the better. We all like to help others; it brings a great sense of satisfaction to guide an individual in their career path, or a company to that next level – placing the right person in the right job is a job well done. 

Develop your interpersonal and professional skills 
You are the vital link between the candidate and the client; you will need to have (and learn to enhance) a wide range of skills to succeed.  Most important is the ability to build professional relationships with your clients. 

You need to be comfortable operating under pressure and should be ambitious and confident. It is also vital that you can multi-task and be able to apply a high level of integrity to your decision-making.

Personally and financially rewarding with superb career development opportunities 
Recruitment consultants can be very well rewarded – and if you are good at your job - the performance related bonuses or commission levels are very attractive. 

There is also excellent career progression in recruitment - if you’re new to the industry you would normally start as trainee consultant, progressing to a senior consultant and then depending on the company size, a branch manager or regional manager.

So for your next job, why not consider a career in helping other people find rewarding jobs and companies to flourish with ideal employees.  Interested? Why not work for Pinnacle Consulting...

Four facts about Pinnacle Consulting

We are a specialist sales and marketing recruitment agency operating exclusively in the UK construction products and building materials industry. This means our knowledge and advice is based on a true understanding of our customers’ needs.

Our Consultants manage projects from cradle to grave 
You would manage relationships with a broad range of clients from multi-national distributors and manufacturers of building products to small independent ones.

You would be responsible for the whole recruitment process - this includes sourcing and qualifying new sales and marketing vacancies, sourcing interviewing and screening candidates and then matching candidates to vacancies.

We consider integrity as being vital to our philosophy
Our mission is to build long-term relationships for long-term gain. It is not just about filling a vacancy for us and getting a placement - that would be the easy fix and not fair on either the candidate or the client. 

This is where our philosophy of integrity and professionalism plays a vital role and makes us different from many others. We do this by really getting to know our clients and candidates, so we intuitively know what they need, resulting in confidential advice that is invaluable and hard to find elsewhere.

We encourage the development of our own talent too
Although previous recruitment experience is beneficial – it is not essential. It is just as important to have a naturally positive outlook combined with a professional and well-organised work ethic. 

Our current team are from a combination of internal telephone based sales and customer service type backgrounds. Most importantly they share a common grounding within challenging and targeted environments where there is the need to deliver.
