Work For Us
Lots of things lead people to wanting to explore recruitment as a viable career option, but one thing is for sure: you have to be good with people. And at Authentic that means genuinely good with people, wanting the best for them, being an advocate and trusted advisor.
We’ll be honest, on a bad day working as a Recruitment Consultant is an emotional roller-coaster of let downs and frustration. On a good day you’ve helped an employer build their A-Team and you’ve found someone the perfect job. It’s the excited calls from employers and the grateful texts over Christmas from candidates that makes this job worthwhile.
Of course there is also fantastic earning potential for committed and diligent recruitment consultants, but if you’re just in it for the money you won’t last long at Authentic.
