Why choose a career in Recruitment?

Choose a career in Recruitment!

Does a fast-paced job with unlimited earning potential sound attractive to you? Recruitment consultancy is a direct sales role: you sell clients to candidates, and vice versa. It’s the pinnacle of the sales market and no two days are the same. You will effectively be running your own 'business within a business’ from your desk. To put things into perspective, an outstanding recruiter can make £100K in their first year.

What kind of money can you expect to earn as a Recruitment Consultant?

£23,000 Basic Starting Salary + UNCAPPED COMMISSION

1st year OTE £35,000 - 2nd year OTE £60,000 - 3rd year OTE £100,000+

Your first year is all about learning, by the end of your first 12 months you will have realistically earnt between £35k - £40k. Your second year is where you will really start to reap the financial rewards as you will be an expert in your field; most recruiters in their second year earn between £55k - £65k.
