The fast-paced nature of recruitment is one of the best aspects of the role as it ensures the days are quick and the work is varied. Constant communication with client, candidates and colleagues is also great if you are a social person. Also, whilst the role can be difficult at times, there are generally successes every day to motivate you which can range from finding someone their dream job to filling a difficult role with a new client.
The job can be stressful at times and if you don't plan properly your work will get on top of you. Also, with it being a sales job, rejection is a normal part of your day to day work. Whilst you become accustomed to handling rejection from candidates and clients, it can be disheartening in your first few months,

What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
Be sure to emphasise skills that are applicable to the job, particularly communication and sales as you are likely to be in a sales driven environment. Also, do your research on Reed as a company and the recruitment industry as it will show the Graduate Team at Reed you are serious about your application and not just applying as it is a Graduate scheme.
Do you have any interview tips?
There are a number of interview stages, two on the phone and one which is face to face. On the initial telephone interview, be clear and confident and make sure you prepare beforehand! The second telephone interview will likely be a test so ensure you completely understand the information and think about it analytically - don't be afraid to think outside the box! The final face to face interview will be with a senior member of staff in the business and this can seem quite daunting. However, don't be afraid of this stage as they are only trying to get an understanding of what you are like as a person and a candidate to see if you will do well in the business.
