4 things you must know before starting your recruitment career

Working in recruitment can be incredibly rewarding However, recruitment isn’t without its challenges and to reap its rewards you need to know and be excited about what lies ahead.

Make sure you’re comfortable with the sector

Existing knowledge of your market can help you quickly find your feet at Retinue after all partners will rely on your understanding of their field to secure results.

However, as long as you have a desire to make a difference and a willingness to understand our world, you can still excel with us and build your knowledge as you go.

You need a take charge attitude

At Retinue we give you the freedom to grow, and ultimately how far you go is in your hands. You'll operate independently, and once we’ve shown you the ropes you’ll take charge of building and nurturing your own network.

To excel, you need to use your initiative and be willing to change lane should a problem arise. A take charge attitude will not only fuel more positive results for your clients and candidates, but will fast track your progression too as promotion here is purely performance based.

Be ready to listen

Be open to organising face to face meetings where possible, ask clear questions, and really listen to the answers. Remember to take notes during your conversations too – recounting specific details during future conversations (even those seemingly unrelated to recruitment) will help you build better relationships and make better matches.
