What are the benefits of being in recruitment?

If you spend your time hunting down challenges, seeking fresh opportunities and jumping at chances to interact with an array of people, then a career at Total Assist could suit you down to a tee, as we are always on the lookout for punchy and energetic new recruitment consultants to join our vibrant team. There are many reasons why being a recruitment consultant is an immensely satisfying career option, but here are some top reasons you will definitely want to consider…

1) It’s lucrative

Commission, bonuses…it’s really up to you how much you want to earn. At Total Assist, recruitment consultants can have the opportunity to earn up to £100k per year if they put the hours in, so if shirking hard work isn’t your scene, then you can make some serious money in a very short space of time. It usually takes about four weeks for you to start seeing commission once you begin to build your portfolio of candidates, and from there the sky’s the limit on what you could be earning.

2) Incredibly social environment

You’ll meet tons of people, and your colleagues will be like-minded, ambitious individuals like you, so you should get on like a house on fire. Recruitment is also very team based so they’ll be lots of liaising as well. Total Assist’s office has an incredible talkative buzz, with calls from different teams flying out across the desks as we work together to gain our goals.

3) Positive promotion route and training

Recruitment is great for working your way from the bottom up, learning and developing your skills as you progress in your career. At Total Assist, we recruit pools of graduate talent to train and fast track to team leader status and positions of responsibility. All of the managers and directors here started as trainees and through hard work, have achieved their dream jobs. We run extensive Academy training programmes so that new starters can learn from and be mentored by our experienced consultants on the floor. This would include the all important skill set of matching suitable candidates to clients. With a respected reputation in our field, we know exactly what our clients are looking for, so we can pass on high calibre candidates that won’t disappoint.

4) Niche knowledge and skills

Not only will you learn transferrable skills such as multitasking, communication and organisation, but you will also acquire some really in-depth niche knowledge that will correlate directly to the sector that you are working in. You will soon pick up the complexities, problems and dynamics of your field and this makes you very well placed to judge trends in the market sector – something your candidates will be more than curious to know about. Once you have the know-how, people will come to you for insider advice, ensuring you are more likely to nab more work.

5) Fast paced and exciting atmosphere

Twiddling thumbs and sharpening pencils repeatedly have no place within the recruitment industry, especially at Total Assist, as speed is always of the essence. Hollering out between departments, constant phone calls and networking, chasing up the best opportunities – there is simply no time to be idle so you won’t have a dull moment. Your working day will pass in a blur, packed to the rafters with a multitude of tasks to keep you engaged and enjoying your job.

6) Perks

As if the potential to nab a chunky commission and bonus isn’t enough, there is also the opportunity to grab yourself some other company provided for perks, that could include health insurance, pension contributions, overseas trips, daily sales incentives and awards, etc, although this will vary on a person to person basis. There may also be team rewards such as nights out at top bars and restaurants to reward you for all of your hard work.
