Executive Recruitment Consultant for one of the biggest Recruitment Agencies in England
Pros: Brilliant team, close to home, monetarily rewarded for hard work and promoted in the first year to an Executive Consultant
Cons: No managerial advancement opportunities
This is where I gained 4 years of hands on full lifecycle Recruitment experience. I was a Temps Consultant for 3years and a Perms Consultant for the last year a Reed. I was responsible for doing 10 businesses development calls to clients a day, going on 3 Client visits a week, finding jobs by speccing in suitable candidates, advertising jobs, sourcing and interviewing candidates, filling jobs over the phone and in person whilst on client visits, doing candidate update calls to generate jobs etc. I loved this job because I had a fabulous team, and was always one of the top performers at Reed. I made loads of money, but there was just no career advancement opportunities. That's why I eventually had enough and decided to see what else there was out there for me. The manager was fun to work with and I loved the team, so it was a difficult move after being there 4 years- but I wanted career advancement opportunities.
