Role of a Recruitment Consultant

Recruitment Consultants attract candidates and match them to contract or permanent roles for clients.

Consultants typically source candidates through headhunting, networking and advertising as well as professional and social networking sites. Once a suitable candidate is found, they pre-screen either over the phone or face to face on behalf of the client to determine if they match the client’s skill-set and technical or commercial requirements.

Once matched, consultants arrange candidate interviews with the client and manage the hiring process from start to finish. Throughout this process, consultants will qualify a candidate’s salary, role requirements and general expectations which is communicated to the client, ensuring both parties agree on the opportunity.

Normal activities include:

  • Headhunting – identifying and approaching suitable candidates who may already be in work
  • Reviewing and clarifying job specifications, competencies and skills required
  • Scheduling and coordinating interviews
  • Developing a good understanding of client companies, their industry, what they do and their working culture/environment
  • Negotiating pay and salary rates in addition to finalising arrangements between client and candidates
  • Providing regular updates and feedback to managers, candidates and clients
  • Generating new business using targeted sales strategies either on the phone, face to face or through marketing campaigns
  • Writing job adverts, registering new CV’s, preparing candidates for interview and offering CV advice
  • Building long-standing working relationships
