What will make you successful?
There are no hard and fast rules as to who will be successful in recruitment, since the range of businesses within the group covers a number of disciplines and levels of recruitment. Opportunities generally exist for ambitious individuals with either (although not exclusively):
- A proven track record within one of our specialist professional disciplines
(i.e. Accounting & Finance or Banking & Financial Services)
- General business, commerce or sales experience
- Previous recruitment experience
The structure of each business depends on each sector or location you work in. However, teamwork is always the common denominator. Whether working in a specific sector or on a geographical basis, the individual needs of clients and candidates are serviced by a dedicated team, which frequently comprises of consultants specialising in either temporary or permanent recruitment or at different levels.
Here are some key attributes we look for:
Your attitude will make or break you. If you are positive, motivated, persistent and well organised you will succeed. It may take you a while but if you have these tools and you are an excellent listener, we will make every resource available, to help you fulfill your potential.
Commitment is the key to your success in our business. We are definitely not a 9 to 5 organisation! You must be prepared to put in the hours consistently and make productive and creative use of your time. In return, we can promise you a rewarding, "work hard, play hard environment".
Your level of activity
Particularly in the early stages of your career at Michael Page International, your day is spent making telephone call after telephone call to reach prospective candidates and clients. This high level of activity has a direct correlation to your future success.
We rely on teamwork and so it is important that you thrive on working within a team towards a common goal, that you trust your team-mates and they can trust you.
Recruitment requires sound judgment and keen insight into human nature. You rely on your judgment when you make hundreds of decisions every week on business opportunities and situations. Other people rely on your judgment when you are recommending they meet a candidate or a client. Sound judgment will come from listening and learning, as well as experience and plain common sense.
