Career Progression: going from good to great

More and more people are considering a career in recruitment, but what does this actually mean? What can you expect?  

Generally speaking, it is a sales job providing professional Human Resources services to both companies and job seekers. We match the most suitable candidates to opportunities available with our clients.

Being a Recruitment Consultant, you will be given autonomy and empowerment to look after your own client and candidate relationships. This is an entrepreneurial role, where successful consultants have high levels of resilience and self-motivation. 

Career opportunities and progression
Normally, new joiners to the industry will start their career in a Researcher or Associate Consultant role. The main responsibilities are sourcing, screening and identifying the right candidates for roles being worked on by their team.

Promotion from here will land you in a Recruitment Consultant position where the aim is to manage both the candidate side and client side of the recruitment process. The main difference is the task of business development - building positive relationships with clients and searching for leads to expand your business portfolio. 

The next step in the career pathway is Senior Recruitment Consultant, followed by Team Lead or Manager. Here the focus shifts more towards team building, training new joiners, and supporting people’s individual development. 

At Morgan McKinley, we also offer global opportunities to our people and support relocation decisions. As a business based across 10 countries, Recruitment Consultants at Morgan McKinley have the chance to relocate to other offices around the globe to gain international exposure.
