To answer, 'What is a recruitment consultant?', in short, it is a recruitment specialist who matches candidates to jobs. Some recruitment consultants specialise in finding candidates for temporary roles, for example, covering for parental leave or covering when an employee is unwell. Others focus on helping candidates to find permanent jobs. Recruitment consultants are able to build strong relationships with their clients and the job seekers they work with. Recruitment consultants work closely with clients to understand their requirements and find candidates that match these needs.

These professionals take on a variety of different tasks, including drafting job advertisements, headhunting, screening and interviewing new candidates and finding suitable potential roles for them. Recruitment consultants also give advice to both employers and candidates about salary levels and career opportunities.

Some recruitment consultants might work in-house for a company, but the majority work for recruitment agencies. These are agencies set up specifically to support companies with the recruitment process. Recruitment agencies can be large national or international organisations with multiple branches or smaller local companies. Often a consultant or agency specialises in recruitment for a certain industry or type of work.

Large organisations like banks are more likely to have their own in-house recruitment consultants than smaller businesses. The environment is fast-paced, with continual deadlines and targets. Sometimes, this type of working environment is similar to a sales environment. Most recruitment consultants work normal office hours, but sometimes it might be necessary to work outside of these times if a deadline is approaching.

Recruitment consultants have a number of different responsibilities in their job. The role is diverse and can also be demanding. Most days involve doing a variety of different tasks and each day can be different from the next. Some common responsibilities of recruitment consultants include:

  • attracting new clients/businesses through sales, marketing and networking

  • visiting clients at their sites and gaining insight into their businesses and requirements

  • advertising job vacancies

  • headhunting, which involves identifying potentially suitable clients and approaching them to discuss job opportunities

  • matching existing candidates to suitable vacancies

  • reviewing job applications, coordinating tests and interviews and creating shortlists for clients

  • arranging reference and background checks

  • giving advice and support to employers and job seekers

  • meeting targets for placing candidates or generating leads
