Your New Career

What does the role of a Recruiter actually involve?

As a recruiter, no two days are the same. You will be involved at each stage of the recruitment process; from gaining the interest of a candidate and establishing a client requirement, to managing the interview process and supporting your candidates through the resignation and job offer process. You might be out visiting clients and building relationships in the morning, and then on the phone speaking to potential candidates in the afternoon. 

IDEX Consulting specialise in 3 key sectors within the UK: General Insurance, Financial Services and Legal.

Each region of the UK is covered by a team of specialist consultants, and you will be aiming to join one of those specialist teams once you have completed our training and passed your probation period. 

As a Recruitment Consultant you will represent the IDEX brand within your chosen market. By becoming part of IDEX, you are committing to providing an exceptional service; meaning you will be professional, well presented and conscientious in your work at all times. 

Regular activities will include:

  • Making a high volume of phone calls to both candidates and clients, and engaging them in discussion about their recruitment requirements
  • Searching online job boards and databases for specific individuals or skillsets
  • Calling candidates you have researched / headhunted to sell them on a specific job opportunity
  • Conducting a detailed candidate interview to establish suitability
  • Recording a detailed job specification from a client, in person or via telephone
