5 Reasons to be a Facilities Management Recruiter

There are so many reasons to be a facilities management recruiter! It’s a fantastic career choice. One that will give you huge levels of job satisfaction, with rewards to match. Unless you’ve already worked in recruitment, you may not be aware of the many perks of the job. So, we’ve asked our team to share their top 5 reasons to work as a facilities management recruiter.

We’re always on the look out for great people who are keen to start, or progress their career in Facilities management recruitment. If you are interested in a career with us, send your CV and we will get in touch.

A facilities management recruiter has a high earnings potential

We are living in a cost-of-living crisis, and every penny counts. If you choose to work in recruitment, you can expect to be able to boost your basic salary considerably. There are strong financial incentives for performance. Therefore, the better recruiter you are, the more you are financially rewarded. However, be mindful that recruitment is a job with targets. So, if you are motivated by achieving, or even smashing targets, recruitment is a great career choice.

Opportunities for progression

Recruitment is one of the few jobs where progression is more likely to be linked to achievement. There are many opportunities for great consultants to become managers, or to side-step into another department. Progression isn’t linked to years of service. It’s down to your commitment to the role and your achievements along the way.

Ongoing training as a facilities management recruiter

We know that our service levels depend on our teams. Therefore, we invest heavily into training our colleagues. We are able to support with apprenticeships or NVQ qualifications to help make sure that you have the skills you need to progress your career in recruitment. We also hold regular training sessions in-house to give everyone the best chance of success in their role.

Looking for variety?

It’s true what they say about recruitment – no two days are ever the same! If you like variation in your work, then you’ll love recruitment. Whilst the role is targeted, it comes with a high degree of autonomy. As a recruiter, you have to wear many hats. Salesperson, marketer, negotiator, project manager, and more. In facilities management recruitment there’s also a wide range of roles that we work on. You’ll develop your knowledge in all the key areas of facilities management and gain a strong network as a result.

Highly levels of job satisfaction and security

There’s currently a candidate shortage in the UK. And this is when working with a specialist facilities management recruiter is vital for many companies. It’s a booming industry and it’s showing no signs of slowing down. If you choose to work in recruitment, and you enjoy the first few months, you are choosing a career for life. Whilst it has its challenges – like most jobs – the level of job satisfaction is high. It’s such a great feeling when you’ve helped someone find a job, ensured a client has a full headcount, or smashed your target. There’s nothing quite like it.
