How did you get into recruitment?
I learnt a lot about myself throughout my studies in Human Resources and that’s where I discovered my passion for wanting to help people. Initially I was a candidate with Gaulter Russell Numero and then I was presented with the Para Consultant opportunity and thought it would be a really good fit for where I want to go in my career.
Give me a rundown of the average day in the life of a Para Consultant.
There’s really no average day, it’s always changing, which I really like. I support the Gaulter Russell team of consultants and I have a wide range of responsibilities that keep me busy, including phone screening candidates to find out what types of roles they are interested in before sending their CV’s around the team, keeping our CRM database up-to-date and liaising with candidates and clients. I also assist with booking internal and external interviews, keeping our website up to date and providing administrative support, which can include putting together reports and assisting with candidate reference checks.
What do you love most about your role and the recruitment industry?
I love talking to people and that I have a wide range of different tasks I get to do each day, I’m learning a lot from everyone around me. Being new in the recruitment industry and in a position of support to the wider team has really opened my eyes to what recruitment is all about.
What is the best piece of advice you have ever been given?
If you fall, don’t be afraid to get back up! Life is about trial and error, it’s not always going to be perfect the first time round, but if you don’t give it another go you’ll never know what could’ve been.
What advice would you give to a job seeker?
Set your eyes on the prize and be confident! Being clear in the types of roles you want makes it easier for us to help you.
