What is the job of an Executive Recruitment Consultant with Monroe?
The job of an Executive Recruitment Consultant is fast paced, demanding and diverse. It is also very challenging and exciting, and no two days are ever the same. The role involves attracting business from client companies by using sales, business development and marketing techniques. This includes building relationships with clients by going out and meeting them, keeping in touch over the telephone and via writing. It involves getting to know the client companies, what they do, how they operate and the general culture or atmosphere of the workplace. An important attribute for a recruitment consultant is the confidence to contact prospective clients and win their business. Recruitment Consultants are also required to attract candidates by drafting advertising copy, using a wide range of media and direct search methodologies. It also involves screening candidates, interviewing them and selecting suitable candidates to put forward to client companies. Recruitment Consultants are also involved in negotiating pay and salary rates and finalizing arrangements between clients and candidates. The sense of satisfaction you receive from placing the right candidate in the right job is why we do what we do.
What opportunities are there for career progression?
A recruitment consultant will generally enter the industry as a Trainee, working with a relatively small team. From here a person can progress to a Senior Consultant and then to management or a Principle Consultant. Each level has clearly outlined goals that will trigger promotion when achieved. By working at Monroe Consulting Group, you will have access to career progression at a local level as well as internationally. Being part of an international staffing company, you will also have access to gain short term experience of overseas markets.
What rewards could a recruitment consultant expect?
Salaries form the backbone of your rewards, and handsome commissions are the topping that makes the job very attractive to sales professionals. Commissions are based on performance and there is no ceiling.
