There is no prescribed education background for recruitment consultants. But recruitment consulting is a competitive career field, and many companies and agencies may prefer candidates with higher secondary education for the role of recruitment consultant. You can pursue any stream in higher secondary school to become a recruitment consultant. If you are interested in pursuing higher academic credentials with a career in recruitment consulting, it is beneficial for you to pursue an HR or business-related degree. For working with specialised recruitment agencies and firms, you may also consider pursuing a bachelor's degree in their focus domain.

With industry knowledge, work experience and higher academic credentials, you can pursue administrative positions in large agencies or companies that work in this domain. You also have the option of starting your own business venture in the field of recruitment consultancy. Popular undergraduate courses to pursue include BBA (Bachelor of Business Administration), BBA in Human Resources, BBA in Human Resource Management and BBA in Global Business.

The most prominent employers for recruitment consultants are employment and recruitment agencies. Some companies with larger scale of operations and a massive workforce may have in-house recruitment consultants working for them. This is common in specialised domains like banking and law. Recruitment agencies may also specialise in a particular professional domain. For example, you could choose to work as a recruitment consultant for an agency that specialises in outsourcing visual design or content writing work for several multinational companies.
