Senior Consultant, Internal Recruitment at Hays
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

If you have a friend to get referred through then definitely go that way or through a consultant. If not then apply direct but be prepared for a telephone interview quickly.

Interview Advice:

Lots of stages so be prepared to commit to the process, the internal team are really informative and really quick moving, always be on top of your game and ready to answer any questions they throw at you. The assessment centre is quite fast paced and very reactive so just go with it and if something goes wrong don't let it affect the rest of the tasks. Director interviews always seem the most daunting but now I work for them it's silly to think why I was nervous, they are all sociable people so just be yourself and keep the conversation flowing.

Application Advice:

Ensure that you have an up to date CV, your reasons for leaving your previous employer are on there with the correct dates. Make sure that the CV outlines everything you have done - don't miss anything off. Also be sure that it looks good and is readable to the employers.

Interview Advice:

Be yourself! The interview process is tough - there are 4 stages to get through but each motivated me to want to work for Hays even more.

You need to demonstrate your potential to work in Hays not necessarily where you have previous recruitment experience. They also want to see your personality shine through as well as your commerciality.

Show interest, be yourself, personality is key here along with the passion of wanting to work here and gain business.

What are the main skills a recruitment consultant would need? How can you demonstrate you have these skills? Why recruitment? Why Hays? What do you think the typical day looks like? etc.

Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Take the time to think hard about whether or not you want to pursue a career within recruitment because if you are not 100% dedicated to the job you will not succeed.

Interview Advice:

Firstly, when asked a question take a moment to think about your answer and make sure that your answers are clear and directly linked to the question. Secondly, when asked about your experience and level of skill, don't try to lie. Just be honest about what you are good at and what you are not so good at. The third piece of advice I can give, is make sure you let your personality show. Not one person comes from the same background when joining Hays ! It's your personality and ambition that will determine whether you are offered the job or not.

You wont have any figures to discuss if this is your first job in recruitment so draw upon times in your life where you have saved/ made money, gone above and beyond and worked well with people. Being a recruitment consultant is a lot about your personality and flare for sales.

Recruitment Consultant, Architecture & Design at Hays
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

You must be really hard working, as the first 12 months are difficult. There is a lot to learn and a lot of relationships to build, so you have to accept that all your hard work will eventually pay off.
Also I think it's important to be target motivated, as there are KPI's and financial figures that need to be hit at all times. I think if you are a target driven person this will only motivate you more.

Interview Advice:

There is a 3 stage process for interviews.
The first is a telephone conversation with someone from the internal recruitment team. If you are successful and pass this stage you will be invited to attend an Assessment Centre.
This will test your skills such as presentation, your phone manner and your ability to deal with a difficult scenario. They want to see that you are a confident people person. This will last approximately a couple of hours.
You will then be invited to attend final stage interview if you successfully pass the assessment centre.
This final interview will be with your regional Director and also your prospective manager. If you are unsure what specialism you would like to recruit for, it is not uncommon for more than 1 potential manager to meet with you around this time.

Senior Consultant, Manchester, Secondary at Hays

Application Advice:

The job requires 100% of your time and attention and is more of a vocation than a career, but with that comes reward. To do it you need to be driven, focussed and be willing to go the extra mile to promote a high performance culture within.

You must know your market/specialism better than all of your competitors, of which there are a lot.

Interview Advice:

Revise the basic concepts of recruitment using Google. Understand that recruitment is more than matching a job to a person and reaping the rewards, it's the everything in between that matters just as much i.e. compliance, marketing and building relationships.

Understand however, that the priority is fees.

Be open and honest about why you want to work in recruitment specifically - prior to applying myself (I worked in employment screening for PwC beforehand) I set up multiple meetings with heads of other recruitment companies to discuss their business and the challenges they felt were facing the industry. Get the details of a normal weekly workload, know what you're getting into, and be prepared to serve your time struggling to make the big bucks - too many people come in expecting this straight away.

Application Advice:

Recruitment is a sales environment so if you come from a sales background, then you will do well in this type of role but your candidate is your product, therefore if you have good people management skills this is the job for you. I would suggest to have pictures or colour onto your CV to take make yourself stand out or represent yourself as a lot of people apply for jobs within recruitment. Do research before on successful recruitment consultants and find out tips on what it is that makes them successful.

Interview Advice:

Be prepared for questions around recruitment (why you want to work in recruitment or what you know about recruitment). I don't believe it is critical but if you have an idea of what sector you are interested in within recruitment and provide some market knowledge around that sector. Before the interview, I would prepare a list of strongest and weakest skills, so the strongest skills make you stand out and your weaknesses aren't big enough for it to affect you from doing well in recruitment.

I would advise candidates that if you are going to apply for a role in recruitment, you need to have a strong head for this! Recruitment is all about sales, being target driven, business development, and bringing out the best in yourself and Hays as a company! It is a competitive role, but that buzz and rush of adrenaline you get when you hit your target or grow your fees is one of the best feelings you will ever get, so being highly motivated is key! You learn so much about yourself when you take up this role, identifying what your strengths and weaknesses are. Everybody at Hays is so friendly and welcoming, and it feels like we are one big family! It honestly is one of the best companies to be a part of!

Interview Advice:

The key to interviewing is just be yourself! Your interviewers have shortlisted you for a reason - that in itself is an achievement. You may get asked questions where you have to relate personal experiences back to the questions, so try to be as specific as possible. Also, doing small things like smiling, nodding your head, making eye contact, or asking further questions will look like you are engaged with your interviewer and interested in what he/she is saying.

Research the office you are applying to work in, find out what specialisms they offer and research them. Look at job types in the industry, pay types, companies who would require those services and the potential competitors. - This will really help during the interview.

Then thoroughly research Hays and what we do. It would reflect badly with any company if when you got to interview you did not know anything about them or what they do.

Have a look on www.hays.co.uk, there is lots of information about being a recruitment consultant and you can practice matching candidates to roles which will help when you get to the interview role plays.

Interview Advice:

ROLE PLAYS! Hays loves a good role play, so be prepared to be a recruitment consultant.

Hays only wants to hire the best so the interview process has several stages, in my experience stages 2,3 and 4 all involved role plays. Be confident and don't be afraid to ask questions when given the opportunity, if you don't ask you don't know, and if you don't know.....

Enjoy it, the interview process the whole way through is fun, you meet new people and learn lots about yourself and the company whether or not you are successful.

I would advise applicants to research the recruitment industry well prior to attending interviews, as it is quite a niche industry where everything isn't as easy as it seems.

Senior Recruitment Consultant, Manchester at Hays
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

The main piece of advice I would give to candidates who are applying for roles within Hays is to be Inquisitive throughout the interview process.

What I mean by this is to ask relevant questions, essentially be nosey to find out more information.

This is a skill that all the best recruitment consultants have, and from now being a part of the Hays team, I know this is also a skill that is particularly looked for within the interview process.

However, make sure they are relevant questions and business related, as asking stupid questions for the sake of it will not have the desired effect.

Interview Advice:

Dress to impress.

Managers and directors are always involved in the interview process with Hays and they want to find someone who they could take out on a meeting with a client that afternoon and not be shown up.

Remember, first impressions count.

Be yourself and prepare. Always come in knowing what recruitment is, this can be difficult but you can do the online test and ask questions.

Ask questions and interact with the other candidates in the assessment centre also be confident no matter how nervous try to relax they want you to succeed.

The final interview is meant to be tough if you leave thinking you've got the job chances are you have not. Keep a level head and think about your responses.

Application Advice:

Make sure you are as focused and dedicated to pursuing a career within recruitment before applying rather than using it as a stepping stone to another path. Without this determination to suceed it can be very difficult to motivate you through the difficulties you may face in your first few months.

Interview Advice:

You need to quick thinking in your interview, and ensure you try and have an answer for every scenario. For example, disgruntled clients - and how you can turn every obstacle into an opportunity for yourself. This is something which will be tested in the interview process.

Application Advice:

Look beyond what the job entails on face value. When I interviewed for the role I was very naive to what I thought recruitment was and didn't appreciate the successful career you can make out of it. When applying make sure you are resilient because too many graduates give up too easily in Sales.

Interview Advice:

Back up every answer with an example.
Keep good eye contact especially when applying for a sales role as relationship building is key to success.
Remember as much as the company is interviewing you, you are also trying to find out what makes this company better than their competitors so ask questions to the interviewer as well. e.g. What makes this company a better workplace compared to other recruitment agencies?

Application Advice:

Successful applicants will always be those who can demonstrate some commercial nouse. We're sales people and the ability to demonstrate a strong commercial awareness and a passion for your own career is key.
Sports and activities are always a big selling point in your CV - ultimately this is an industry that is filled with competitive people and it takes a competitive spirit to succeed, coupled with a strong team ethic.

Interview Advice:

Be confident, be prepared and be well presented.
People underestimate the value in smiling and good body language but these are key to your success in an interview for a recruitment position. Smiling implies confidence, success and automatically puts your interviewer at ease. Remember, first impressions take 8 seconds to make and a life time to change so make yours count.
If you want to be successful in an interview you should be prepared to demonstrate a keen understanding of Hays' core values and a drive to succeed.
Candidates who do well in our assessment centres show the ability to think quickly under pressure, strong sales skills but most importantly are well liked by their interviewers.
Being smartly dressed almost goes without saying for any interview but really do think about how you are presented. As a recruiter you need to be better dressed than your best dressed clients and candidates. If a candidate arrives to interview for me dressed casually or in scruffy clothing they have nearly lost the battle from the onset. Simple business attire is sufficient and there is plenty of advice out there on the web, so don't get caught out on a controllable part of your interview.

Application Advice:

Do not take this role lightly - this role has a lot of expectations and it is a massive learning experience. The application process is intensive but if you are passionate about the role then perservere. Coming out of University it is a bit of an undertaking for a first job but if you are willing to throw yourself into the role and push yourself out of your comfort zone, you will reap the rewards. At every opportunity ask as many questions about the company, role and the office you will potentially work at (all offices across the UK vary significantly in size which makes such a difference to the working environment).

Interview Advice:

Read up as much as you can about Hays - facts, figures and working ethos.
Try and get to grips with the world of recruitment and what working in it involves.
Think about how your previous experiences will help you to work with people, get to the bottom of information and get people to buy into you as a professional.
