3 Things You Must Teach New Recruitment Consultants in Year One – Recruitment Consultant Training


As in any profession, teach somebody well in their first year and you will recoup your own recruitment costs for years to come.

There are many things that will form part of your recruitment consultant training including advanced selling skills, negotiation and listening skills to name just a few of the basic attributes. Here we want to share 3 key ideas that are vital for success in any industry that involves selling and especially recruitment.

1. Goal Setting

That is obvious I hear you say. Well maybe and maybe not. Few people actually understand goal setting, and how to set it up so it actually works.

Imagine the scenario Sam or Sally start with you and you give them their first billings target of £10k that month. I am just using this as an example. Now all well and good and yet leaving it at that will not get you the result you want.

The best way to make a goal happen is to break it down into smaller chunks that will relate to actions that need to be taken.
