  • ~ 2 ~GSR2R Phone: 020 3178 8118 |Web:http://gsr2r.com Email:hello@gsr2r.com Competition is tough out there for recruitment consultants. Let’s face it, your earnings depend not only on securing new vacancies to fill, but having a good range of suitable candidates for each role. Otherwise you won’t make placements that stay or smash your billings. It has never been easy to find that stellar candidate and it is getting harder. With many candidates choosing to find work themselves online with the temptation of an abundance of job sites and everyone’s favourite site; LinkedIn. Convincing candidates that they should choose a recruitment consultant can be a challenge in itself, so read on for five tips that will make sure that you are the recruitment consultant they choose. 1. Take a consultative approach Many candidates don’t know what to expect when visiting a recruitment agency for the first time and don’t have an understanding of recruiter roles. Often, they are asked to hand in their CV and advised they will be telephoned should any suitable vacancies arise. Investing time in the first meeting or phone call can reap dividends and reassure the candidate that you are genuinely interested in their career. Take a consultative approach by really listening to the candidate to establish what is important to them. Be bold and ask them what they are looking for in a recruitment consultant and tailor your conversation to meet their expectations or make alternative suggestions if they are off the mark.

The role you have has enabled you to get into a conversation with this candidate; what if they are, spot on for a different job you are placing? Suggest alternative positions they would be suitable for based on their prior work history and hard and soft skills. Having an established client base will help here; allowing you to cross reference and match their expertise with what you know your clients seek in a member of staff. 3. Know your clients Talk to your candidate about your current client base. Of course, you don’t want to divulge too much information – after all, you don’t want any of your rival recruitment consultants to snatch your potential placements from under your nose or breach any confidentiality, however, you can talk about your relationship and trust with them, successful recent placements and the specific sectors in which you operate. If you have any suitable open vacancies, talk to your candidate about them. If not, explain that you will call your existing clients to pitch them in speculatively. Even better if you can make some calls right there and then to show that you are proactive. 4. CV and interview preparation Reassure the candidate that you will be with them every step of the way and can help with rewording their current CV to meet the requirements of job descriptions and the client’s essential and desirable criterion. Reaffirm that you know exactly what your clients want and can therefore prepare them for interviews in line with the job role, company culture and mission.

Encourage the candidate to call or email you regularly if they have any further questions. This is a good time to set your expectations such as what you expect from them, potential time frames and next steps. Finally, ask for their business and confirm that you will start on their next career move right away. Till next time! Cheryl and the GSR2R Team
