At Hudson, we have completely transformed our business to create a talent solutions provider capable of competing effectively in the new world of work. We’re no ordinary recruitment business. We’ve integrated our market-leading talent management expertise with our recruitment business to create a truly compelling and competitive proposition that clients and prospects love. We’re innovative. Our PULSE MINDSET™ tool is unique. Not just in recruitment. Not just in the UK. Worldwide. We’re thought leaders. Our ground-breaking New World of Work initiative is challenging organisations to think differently about talent acquisition, assessment, development and retention. Our customers – both clients and candidates – love us. Our approval rating is 77. That’s higher than Apple (72), Amazon (69) and Netflix (68).
There are few roles that are more rewarding and fulfilling than assisting someone in finding their dream opportunity. Jobs pay rents and mortgages, pay for kid’s school books, holidays and events, and help support us in reaching our career ambitions. And given how long we spend at work, it's even more crucial that we get it right. That's why the role of a recruitment & talent consultant is so much more important than many realise. What stands a great recruiter out in the market is their genuine and authentic desire to find the right role for their candidates. They seek first to listen and understand individual motivators and career aspirations. They build long lasting relationships. They understand that a candidate today can easily become a client tomorrow.
A good recruiter also knows how to build long lasting relationships with their client base and works with determination to constantly expand their client relationships so that they may uncover more opportunities for the candidates they are representing. Many refer to this as the 'sales' element of recruitment consulting. But what exactly do we mean when we say selling? Many people feel that selling implies pressuring, misleading or manipulating. That's not selling. That's just bad form. Selling is the process of explaining the logic and benefits of an idea, a decision or a process. And what makes people good at selling, in reality, is actually their belief in what they are communicating, and the ability to articulate that belief in a confident and articulate communication style. So, selling really is about being a good communicator. And believing in what you do. At Hudson we equip you with the tools, training and knowledge to ensure you feel confident in your market proposition and can believe in the service you provide to clients and candidates.
We are particularly interested in hearing from people with recruitment experience in HR. Perhaps you're tired of working in a business that treats its staff like children. Or perhaps you'd like to work for an organisation that gives you more tools to differentiate yourself in the market. Or maybe you're frustrated that your leaders don't understand that the world of recruitment is changing - and that consultants of the future need to be talent advisors not just transactional cv shifters.
The personal traits of someone who is suited to recruitment and talent consulting within our organisation are:
Genuine - are you able to build relationships and genuinely care about the outcomes for all parties involved.
Trustworthy - do you say what you mean and do you do what you say?
Communication - do you enjoy communicating and articulating a proposition to people, are you able to influence senior stakeholders?
Determination & persistent - do you fight to reach your goals and bounce back from adversity? Knowledgeable - do you enjoy expanding your knowledge, are you curious, do you want to be the expert in your field?
Self-disciplined - are you able to manage your time effectively and to self-motivate?
If this sounds of interest we'd love to make your acquaintance. We are a flexible working employer and open to conversations around flexible working.
