Recruitment is an industry that’s big on challenges, but big on rewards. It’s a continuously growing sector that offers major growth and earning potential to those who work at it. But pay and perks aside, recruitment supplies a big package of positives that enable fulfilling and sustainable careers.

So here are 6 reasons why you should choose a career in recruitment.

1. It doesn’t require qualifications or experience to get into.
On most occasions, all you’ll need to kick-start a career in recruitment is a positive attitude, tenacity and great people skills. Your agency will train you in all areas and work with you to build on any weaknesses, and in time, your confidence and skillset will flourish.  

At Berry Recruitment, we offer an extensive 13-week learning and development programme for new starters. This includes interactive group sessions and one-to-one mentoring with our fantastic and fun in-house Training Manager.

2. You’ll learn a breadth of valuable skills.
Sales and negotiating, marketing and advertising, copywriting, relationship building, leadership and organisation, time management... A career in recruitment will leave you loaded with a lot of desirable soft and hard skills.

The claim that “no two days are the same” may be a bit of a cliché in the world of work, but in recruitment, it certainly holds its weight!

3. It’s not a typical glued-to-your-desk job.
While recruitment is an office-based role, you’ll get to spend lots of your time on site visits dropping off gifts and incentives, meeting with clients and interviewing or catching up with your candidates. Sometimes, your work will take you to all kinds of places.

4. You’ll never be bored.
It’s true that recruitment is fast-paced and challenging, but you won’t find yourself stuck in a rut or twiddling your thumbs at your desk each day. You’ll always have something to work towards and new accounts to work on. You’ll be working with a great mixture of people who share the same goal and your managers will always try to create a lively and fun yet focused environment that you can thrive in.

5. The personal rewards.
As a recruiter, you are doing a vital role. The services you provide to your candidates can be life-changing, and you’ll find that a lot of them will be exceptionally grateful for how you’ve helped them. Working in recruitment is more than just screening CVs and booking candidates into interviews. It involves support, training, character building and nurturing, and it’s gratifying when it pays off.

One of the things I love about working in recruitment is that you contribute to a business’ growth by building their recruitment strategy and finding them the best talent on the market!”

6. The pay & perks.
As well as the commission schemes allowing for substantial, uncapped earnings, working in recruitment will come with a bucket load of benefits. Like competitions to win holidays, days out, cash bonuses, prizes, overnight trips, office treats, discount schemes and then some.
