I heard recruitment can be repetitive, what’s my day going to be like as a Trainee Recruitment Consultant?

When recruiters are disorganised or going through the motions, the tasks may seem repetitive. Successful recruiters are on the phone speaking to a lot of people – and no two people are the same.  As a Trainee Recruitment Consultant, you will be:

  • Sourcing and Screening: Identifying top talent in Healthcare through various methods and sourcing channels.
  • Relationship Building: Cultivating strong relationships with clients and candidates, becoming their trusted advisor and agreeing regular and consistent communication.
  • End-to-End Recruitment: Managing the entire recruitment process, from initial screening to job offer and negotiations.
  • Networking: Engaging with passive and active talent by multiple communication methods: client meetings, conferences, emails, and phone calls to generate new business streams.

A lot of recruitment companies look for Graduates – what do I actually need to be successful?

As part of our Equity, Diversity and Inclusion focus, we do not only look to hire graduates. Here’s what an individual needs to be successful:

  • Ambition: The want to succeed and the will to make it happen.
  • Work-Life Fit Perspective: Enhance productivity and fulfil your personal goals through ambition, partnership, and work ethic (three of the Hunter Gatherer Values).
  • Resilience: A mindset that is focused on results and progression – even on the tough days!
  • Strong Communication Skills: Strong interpersonal skills to build relationships at all levels.
  • Proactive Attitude: Self-motivated and ready to take initiative.
  • Coachability: Growth mindset with an ability to adapt and develop as a professional.
