Job Description for Recruitment Consultant

Recruitment consultants work with companies to attract talented workers to fill open employment positions. They collaborate with management to analyze where new employees are needed and work to develop a recruitment strategy. After this, they create search and sourcing strategies to find their pool of potential candidates. The recruitment consultant narrows the pool by prescreening the candidates and then recommends qualified candidates to the company's hiring team. Recruitment consultants keep open communication lines with management during this process in order to ensure that the company's personnel needs are met. Some recruitment consultants may hold dedicated positions in a company's human resources department, while others may be hired by several different companies for temporary positions. Some recruitment positions also work at colleges, handling the recruitment of potential new students.
