How can you become a Recruitment Consultant? Helping to match the ideal candidate with the perfect position is a role of great importance - even within the health industry. If the role of a liaison between employers and hopeful applicants is of interest to you, you may be wondering just how to go about making that career change.

As with most professional positions, employers recommend the successful completion of your GCSEs/S grades before you seek to pursue further certifications. General educational training can include courses in finance, business and/or marketing. Of course to enter any of these programs in the upper years, one will need to complete the GCSEs (A-C)/S grade levels 1-3 and perhaps two A levels or three H grades. Further information regarding base qualifications can be obtained through:

  • Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (for England, Northern Ireland and Wales)
  • Scottish Qualifications Authority

On the job training sessions often take place for new applicants. These training courses are sometimes offered through the REC and include a certificate or diploma in the practice of recruiting. These courses can be taken as distance education training and can be earned through fast-tracking or even studying part-time. In conjunction with Middlesex University, the REC also offers a Foundation Degree and a BA degree in the field of recruiting. The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) also offers a Level 3 training certificate which can be completed traditionally or via a continuing professional development (CPD) plan.

Once you have successfully trained and become certified for this position, you may find yourself earning anywhere between £11,000 and £18,000 per year (to start). A more experienced individual could earn up to £25,000 per year. Highly professional individuals with many years of experience can even earn up to £40,000 as an annual income. If this has sparked your interest and you think this may be the career choice for you, why not begin your training today!
