Why should you consider a career in recruitment? The graduate edition

Red vacant recruitment chair

As a recent or upcoming graduate, you probably haven’t thought about the possibility of a career in recruitment, maybe because you don’t know much about it, or perhaps you are put off by the traditional horror stories surrounding recruitment. Well, sit back and let us tell you the facts. It’s a sector that is growing at an incomprehensible rate, worth over £32.2 billion in an industry that employs well over 100,000 people. With the industry so competitive, at Applause IT, we’re always on the lookout for fresh talent to join our thriving team, employing a handful of graduates every quarter.

Okay, so you might be wondering what’s in it for you. At Applause IT, we run our very own in-house bespoke graduate training programme to ensure that you get to be the best that you can within your role, professionally and personally. We pack you with specialist IT recruitment training right from day one in a three-month training programme to ensure you’ve got all the tools you need, including a structured career progression plan. The differences you can make are uncapped and totally up to you to do so. From managing your own desk and planning your own time, autonomy is critical to you flying up the ranks. Whilst team-playing is a big part of recruitment, nobody can pick the phone up and make the call for you. If you’re a self-starter, who is motivated and hungry for success then you sound like a perfect match.

We know only too well that changing jobs or beginning your career is a stressful and somewhat scary experience. With that in mind, we developed an incredible support process which involves our in-house training manager. Yasmin is on hand at any time to ensure that the transition between jobs or from university to your career is a smooth one, eliminating any queries or concerns with top notch advice. 

A career in recruitment can be a rewarding one, but as with every type of career, you do reap what you sow.  When deciding what company to join, your decision should be well researched ensuring that the company fits with you; we want you to like us just as much as we want to like you! Why not take a look at what we stand for? If that resonates with you, then we’d love for you to consider us. We promote a work-life balance to ensure that whilst you work hard, you can also play hard too. We believe downtime is vitally important to the development and progression of our employees. Connect this with our other incredible benefits package such as a competitive basic salary with uncapped earning potential, a fun working environment (with football, pool, table tennis & unlimited coffee), regular incentives & parties, perk box perks, 23 days holiday + statutory and so much more, we think you’ve got a pretty great place to work.
