A recruitment consultant is a pivotal role within the recruitment sector. A Recruitment Consultant Apprenticeship would appeal to those individuals who possess an entrepreneurial outlook. It provides the opportunity for reward and high earning potential. Many opportunities arise in the recruitment sector for personal and professional development, such as team leader and or managerial roles.
The aim of the apprenticeship is for the learners to acquire the knowledge, skills and behaviours to identify, qualify and secure client recruitment opportunities in line with corporate and personal goals. The apprentice may also be responsible for developing and managing client/candidate relationships to ensure high levels of customer satisfaction and quality standards, as well as meeting all procedures and carrying out relevant processes to ensure industry codes of ethics and relevant legislation are adhered to.
A recruitment consultant may focus on the supply of flexible workers, permanent placements, or a combination of both. This is an office based role, and could take place in a variety of sectors but within the recruitment sector.
