A day in the life of a Recruitment Consultant
A day in the life of a Recruitment Consultant .......... Charlie Hazel
Today we are speaking to Charlie Hazel to get an insight into the role of a Consultant here at LBU, Charlie specialises in Trades & Labourer blue collar Recruitment.
Describe your time so far at LBU Solutions:
I have enjoyed my time so far at LBU Solutions, we work closely as a team and support each other when needed to get the job done.
What do you do on a normal day?
Firstly go over the plan of action for that day which is normally done the evening before. My morning will usually be spent calling round all my new starters to see how it is going onsite and covering any
outstanding vacancies, in the afternoon I will speak to my clients to see what labour support they require for the upcoming week and do any business development calls I have booked in, then at the end of the day write the plan
of action for the following day ……….. And repeat!
What do you enjoy most about working at LBU?
What I enjoy the most about LBU is that everyone here is working as one team and that creates a good working ethic and better results moving forward, we are at work more than we are at home so it’s
important to enjoy working with our peers.
What challenges do you face on a daily basis?
Do I have a Latte or Mocha!
What do you think are the most important skills needed to do your job?
A lot of focus and dedication is needed to keep track of your work flow but once you get those things right you are half way to becoming an established Recruitment Consultant. The aim is to be better than
your last month and keep improving by bringing on new business and new candidates.
What do you enjoy most about working in recruitment?
Dealing with the general public on a day to day basis makes the day varied. I like how fast paced it can be especially on the temporary side. I also enjoy bringing in revenue for LBU and myself (money isn’t
a dirty word). To know I am doing a good job and earning Bonus’s is very rewarding and the possibilities are endless.
What advice would you give to people looking to get into recruitment?
Never give up, be persistent and have an enthusiastic mind-set with the ability to learn from others because you are never the finished article. Knowledge is power!
