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.
