Recruitment continues to grow as the industry hits £35 billion

by Fanatic Design

The recruitment industry is worth approx. £35.1 billion per year to the UK economy and is a market which is continuing to grow. It requires a great deal of hard work and dedication so isn’t for the faint hearted. There are several factors that make recruitment an attractive prospect and sees sales professionals migrating from other industries to join the recruitment market.

Many of the Heat consultants have transferred their sales and client relationship skills from a variety of different roles and industries, including property, automotive, banking and telemarketing.

Whilst successful in their respective fields there are several standout reasons they decided to make the jump and join Heat.

Career progression is something that many people desire but can often become diluted along the way in some organisations. Our career progression is structured and transparent, consultants are aware from day one of what they need to do to take the next step in their career and given the training and support they need to make it happen.

From our Training Academy, through to our Fast Track and Future Leaders training schemes; we teach the true art of recruitment; strengthen relationship building, sales, negotiation and data research skills to build a solid foundation for a long and prosperous career.

Autonomy is something we all expect as adults but sadly many professionals don’t experience it. Organisations want the best employees who will deliver fantastic results but often lose those individuals because they micromanage them and restrict their growth.

We believe in providing our staff the professional freedom to essentially run their own business within a business. Our consultants love this way of working and this is what ultimately allows them to take advantage of our knowledge of the recruitment industry to flourish and take control of their own progression.

Sales roles are heavily targeted but even with expectations high, the commission and recognition structures can fall flat in some industries and this can be demotivating. We keep basic salaries at a good market rate whilst rewarding with an excellent uncapped commission structure that begins from day 1 in the role.

In addition to the monetary potential, there are prizes, bonuses and treats given throughout the year that adds to the buzz and great team atmosphere that we enjoy. Our team is a perfect mix of healthy competition and strong team collaboration, something which is rare to find in the sales environment.

At Heat we have an exciting year of growth ahead so if you are considering your future, talk to us about making the jump into recruitment.
