​What does a recruiter’s day-to-day consist of? - Handle Recruitment

Recruitment is an ever-changing field, influenced by market trends, technology advancements, and shifting job demands.

This dynamism means that no two days are the same and can keep the job interesting and challenging.

However, you’ll find that there are some day-to-day activities that come with the territory, including:

  • Candidate sourcing - using job sites, social media, LinkedIn and other platforms.

  • Candidate interview support – conducting candidate interviews, supporting them through the recruitment process and delivering feedback from the client.

  • Research – studying your chosen industries and becoming a subject matter expert in your field to help understand your candidate and clients' needs.

  • Networking – attending events and going for client catchups over coffee/dinner to expand your network and develop relationships.

  • Administration – managing your candidate pool through candidate management platforms, ensuring CVs are up to date on the system, managing candidate placements and reporting successes/challenges to your director.

  • Personal brand building – producing social media posts to build your profile, working alongside marketing on campaigns to win new business and sharing industry insight.
