International Recruiters’ Day got me thinking about why I love recruitment.
A lot has changed in recruitment in the decades since I joined the sector.
For starters, recruitment was the fastest growing industry in the UK in 2008. While that might no longer be the case, what hasn’t changed is the value recruiters add to people’s lives and the global economy.
With International Recruiters’ Day on my mind, I asked some of my connections exactly that, and here’s what they had to say.
Big shout out to all recruiters everywhere. You do an amazing job and I’m proud to support recruitment businesses and recruiters develop and grow.
What recruiters say on International Recruiters’ Day
I love recruitment because I can make a difference every day to my clients, candidates and colleagues, just by my daily activities.
What I love most about recruitment is being able to build up real solid and trusting relationships with your candidates whereby they look forward to hearing your voice each time you call. It feels like you’re building more of a friendship than a business relationship.
Supporting candidates through the process to help them secure a life changing opportunity
The opportunity to represent and champion underrepresented groups is a privilege.
I love connecting and engaging with people to help them find their dream job.
I like recruitment because supporting people in one of the most stressful times of our lives gives me satisfaction that I can make the process less so.
Assisting people getting their dream job gives me a massive sense of achievement and pride, the next exciting chapter in their story.
I love the meritocratic and inclusive nature of our work. Anyone can do well in recruitment if they are driven and interested and I believe as an industry, we’ve got really good at supporting people through personalised development.
Recruitment has given me so many opportunities to fast-track my career and earning potential, meeting amazing people!
Are you centre stage in your recruitment career?
Recruiters, it’s okay to ask what’s in it for me. In fact, it’s encouraged. Because being centre stage in your recruitment career means asking tough questions before you make a career move.
