5 Reasons why a Career in Recruitment Might be for You

Have you ever considered a career in recruitment?

It’s true that people tend to roll their eyes when they think of recruitment, but have you ever considered why people choose it as a career? For many, it might not have been a deliberate choice to go into recruitment. But once there, they stay because - believe it or not - recruitment can be pretty fun and exciting! Making a difference in people’s lives and building relationships with colleagues and clients is just part of why for us, recruitment is so much more than just filling a vacancy.

Still not convinced? Here are five reasons why you should consider a career in recruitment!

Career progression

Most employers will promise career progression in their job ads. But when it comes to it, there are so many hoops to jump through that the reality is that it’s never going to happen! In recruitment, training and learning from colleagues coupled with your hard work means recognition and progression will be at your fingertips.  

At People Solutions, we encourage and support you to achieve your goals. And when you do, a defined progression path will be waiting for you. Just see for yourself!

Creating real connections

Since the pandemic, we all know how easy it is to lose our connections with others. The working day can be a solitary one without interaction with real people. Recruitment is all about people, so it goes with the territory that these vital interactions that make the day a bit easier are all part of the package.

That's why ‘Create Real Connections’ is one of our family values. At People Solutions, we live and breathe this every day and recognise that building strong relationships with your colleagues, clients, and candidates is what makes recruitment better for everyone.

Potential earnings and rewards

While pay and bonuses are generally top motivators in any occupation, an attractive salary alone won’t be enough for most to take the leap into a new career, recruitment or otherwise. After all, there's more to life than money, isn’t there?

With us, it doesn't stop at a competitive salary. We give our people the opportunity to celebrate their achievements and reap the rewards from their success - from extra time off on their birthday, to bonuses, to holiday vouchers.

Making a difference

Most people want that feeling of knowing they’ve made a positive, lasting impression on someone else's life. The buzz of helping someone find their dream role or aiding a client find the perfect hire for their team really does get you every time. The impact you can have is highly rewarding, and you get that opportunity to influence people's lives every day.

At People Solutions, we advise, challenge and inspire our people to support and guide clients and candidates to find their perfect match. Not only that, but we also give back and support our local communities and charities all year round too.

Being part of the family

Recruitment must be one of the most social careers you could choose. After all, it’s literally all about people. Being part of something bigger and working towards collective successes honestly does feel good.

We pride ourselves on making our people feel like part of the family. And to achieve it, we dedicate time and resources to fun activities that make work feel a little less like work. Family fun days, birthday lunches and social Fridays are just a few things our people enjoy throughout the year. And we are always coming up with new ideas to improve.

Are you convinced yet? We thought so!
