When a company wants to hire part-time or full-time workers, they might not have enough free time in order to find suitable candidates. If the best candidates are needed at short notice, it might be impossible for a company to locate the people that will help them. However, a Recruitment Consultant is able to help companies of any size to find suitable candidates that are exactly what they're looking for.
At no point does a company have to be involved in the recruitment process because a Recruitment Consultant can do it on their behalf. The main objective of a Recruitment Consultant is to screen registered candidates so that only suitable people work for a company. A Recruitment Consultant is very similar to a sales consultant because they should make the position which they are hiring for sound very appealing and be able to attract a greater number of applicants.
A Recruitment Consultant is responsible for headhunting employees and meeting targets which have been set. A Recruitment Consultant is also expected to filter CV's so that only suitable ones are forwarded to a company.
