Considering a career in recruitment? Here’s what to expect!

At Nicholas Bernard, we hire both experienced and trainee recruitment consultants meaning we have viewpoints from across the board to share with you. So if you are considering a career in recruitment, here’s what to expect from this exciting, yet challenging industry.

  1. Learning, Development, and Progression

You may have heard of the term ‘360 Recruiter’… what this means is that you will literally learn every aspect of recruitment – negotiation, communication, marketing, relationship-building and so much more.

This means that you are non-stop learning and developing. Along with the professional training you’ll get from Nicholas Bernard, you’ll learn from your everyday tasks, including how you handle certain situations and become the best recruitment consultant you can be.

Furthermore, recruitment gives you the opportunity for progression (if you want it!). Some of our team members start as trainee consultants and go on to lead teams – the world can really be your oyster!

  1. Earning Potential

In recruitment, you earn as much as you put in. The more work and effort you put into your desk, the more candidates you secure roles for, the more money you will make – making your earning potential uncapped.

This in no way means you should work 24 hours a day, but it does mean that if you work hard, you won’t be leaving every month with the same paycheck – and with the right recruitment agency, mentors, and support, recruitment can be an amazing career path to earn a great salary. 

  1. No day is the same!

Recruitment is rarely as simple as finding a CV and securing an interview. It’s a challenge. Each day will be completely different – from sourcing candidates and client meetings to social media and industry networking.

Agency recruitment takes a lot of time and know-how but is also incredibly rewarding. You’ll be challenged daily, supporting your growth and learning. On top of that, at Nicholas Bernard, we have incentives and rewards including trips abroad, directors lunches and so much more to keep you on your toes. 

We hope this blog gives you a good insight into a career in recruitment, but if you are on the fence, feel free to reach out to our internal recruitment team at [email protected] and we’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have.
