Recruitment is a great career option for any ambitious working professional. As we recover from the pandemic, getting people back to work is an extremely important and noble cause to undertake. If you enjoy meeting and helping others, it could be the perfect career for you. Here are just 5 more reasons why you may choose a career in recruitment.

1. Recruiters can build their own client network

One of the best things about working in recruitment is the huge variety of interesting and talented people you get to meet and work with. Once you have completed your recruiter training, you have the freedom to headhunt and manage your own candidates.

The role comes with a lot of independence, but you’ll always have the support of the wider recruitment agency to fall back on.

2. Opportunities for career progression within recruitment

There are plenty of opportunities within recruitment to grow and develop your career. As a results-based business, your efforts will be recognised. It may not take long for your talents to be acknowledged and for you to be progressed.

With the right mindset and skillset, you can make a real positive impact on the agency.

3. Recruitment has high earning potential

The average recruitment agent earns between £25,000-£35,000 per annum. However, as your career progresses, that salary has the potential to grow much further.

Furthermore, most recruiters are entitled to commission on any roles that they fill. Commission rates tend to be between 15-20% of a candidate’s first-year salary. For positions that are more difficult to fill, however, this percentage can rise to 30%.

4. A competitive, varied environment

The world of recruitment is always changing. New types of roles are coming in all the time, helping you to gain an insight into a wide range of industries. At PPR, we recruit for the constructionairportrailtelecoms, and electrical sectors.

It’s rare that any two days will be the same in a recruitment role, as you constantly forge new working relationships with a diverse range of businesses and candidates.

5. Recruiters make a positive impact on real people’s lives

If you do your job well, you will be playing a pivotal role in helping talented people to find a job. You can help people to secure the salaries they deserve, or help a young person to get their first step on the ladder. Whoever your candidate is, finding them the right role will make an active, positive difference in their life that could set them on the right path for years to come.
