The person(s) who recruits for your organization will vary depending on factors such as your company size and available resources. For example, a small business might delegate recruiting and hiring to the employee who will manage the new hire - also known as the hiring manager. If a company has an in-house human resources (HR) department or HR manager, these professionals will screen the candidates and then consult with the hiring manager before making any final selections.

Companies with internal recruiters or partnerships with recruitment agencies are in the best position, as they can entrust recruiting responsibilities to these experts. A recruiter may consult with an HR manager or hiring manager during the recruiting process, but they do the bulk of the work, such as posting the job, sourcing and screening candidates, negotiating salaries, and placing employees.
