The role of the consultant
Quality recruitment is not about ticking boxes, it is about solving problems. Like an occupational matchmaker, we find the right people for the right job. And because every job and workplace is different, one size does not fit all. Our recruitment methodology is tailored to the specific needs of our clients. We take this into consideration to provide highly specialized recruitment solutions based on industry experience, cultural fit and skillset. That is where you come in.
Recruitment myth: I won’t be using my education / degree
Reality: Your degree adds value for being a great consultant. Our consultants are industry experts – you need to have a specific knowledge of markets, key industry, legislation and regulations, challenges and risks.
Recruitment myth: Consultants are only out for the money, it is a world of sharks.
Reality: Money is a by-product of success. For consultants, success means building strong relationships to find the right person for the right job. You work closely with your team to help each other thrive.
Recruitment myth: It is not very interesting work.
Reality: Being a consultant is not another desk job. Enjoy the diversity of getting out, meeting clients and candidates, and attending events. You will be making a difference in peoples lives.
Recruitment myth: There is not much scope for development.
Reality: We support growth. If you are a strong performer, there are good promotion prospects and clear pathways to the top.
