A recruitment consultant is an intermediary between an organisation wishing to recruit (the client) and the individual seeking a career move or temporary assignment (the candidate).
It is primarily a sales role, with high rewards for excellent results.
Consultancies or agencies come in all shapes and sizes, from small local businesses to national and international enterprises.
Many consultancies are industry-specific or are subdivided into industry-specific sections, so the consultant will be recruiting similar posts for different clients. For example, one consultant might only take on clients in the finance sector.
Lowestoft (/ˈloʊ(ɪ)stɒft, ˈloʊstəf/) is an English North Sea coast town and civil parish in the county of Suffolk. On the edge of The Broads, it is the most easterly UK settlement, 110 miles (177 km) north-east of London, 38 miles (61 km) north-east of Ipswich and 22 miles (35 km) south-east of Norwich. As the main town in the district of East Suffolk, it had an estimated 73,775 inhabitants in 2018. A port town, it developed out of the fishing industry and as a seaside resort with wide, sandy beaches. As its fisheries declined, oil and gas exploitation in the southern North Sea in the 1960s added to its development, alongside nearby Great Yarmouth. These roles have declined, but it is developing as a regional centre of the renewable energy industry.
