A Recruitment Consultant is an expert in sourcing and placing candidates in new job opportunities.

No two days are the same in the life of a Recruitment Consultant; their job is very fast-paced, with a lot of moving parts. A Recruitment Consultant will spend a lot of their time finding candidates through job boards, on social networking sites such as LinkedIn, and through their network. They will also speak to their client base; employers who are looking for specific skills to fill urgent vacancies, to discuss the requirements for their roles, and to ensure they find the best possible candidates for the position.
