It’s fair to say that Recruitment has a bit of a reputation for being overly competitive, involving long hours and a lot of graft. However, in reality, it’s an industry that’s geared around rewarding people for their hard work.
Commission schemes, bonuses, incentive holidays - all of these are up for grabs if you are willing to go that extra mile, which is not something that can be said about a lot of other sectors.
It’s also true that many Recruitment agencies actually take pride in the supportive and relaxed environments they’ve cultivated, challenging traditional assumptions that it’s a dog-eat-dog world. If you’re a people person who enjoys a challenge, then Recruitment is definitely worth considering.
