Why Choose a career in Recruitment?

What is Recruitment?

The task of recruiting new staff is an important but time-consuming process.  Companies often prefer to hire a specialist agency to source suitable candidates. In a nutshell, the objective of a recruitment consultant is to build a relationship with clients.  From there we source job vacancies, and find appropriate candidates for each role.

The transition of human capital outstrips even the movement of money worldwide. No matter what a company does employees are fundamental to its success.  It is essential they hire the best talent to remain competitive.


Clients are willing to pay fees because talent is getting more difficult to find.  We are operating within a ‘candidate driven’ market. Positions are open longer and hiring managers are frustrated at the negative impact this has on their businesses. Companies invariably lack the time and recruitment knowledge to find the right candidates.  More crucially, the people they need are not necessarily looking for them. In recruitment the revenue is generated by placing talented individuals into fee paying clients.


The professional fees charged tend to range from 25% to 33% of the individuals first years remuneration package. Antal International operates in the middle to upper-middle income bands (in pounds sterling terms, the £35,000 to £120,000 salary).


Potential candidates do not always answer advertisements and are, in fact, performing on an extremely productive basis whilst not actively examining their options. By applying the Antal methodology, professional recruitment consultants can identify these candidates and introduce them to opportunities. Every company experiences a level of staff attrition. As an example, the average staff turnover in blue chip companies is around 19%. Typically, organisations will lose nearly a quarter of their employees each year.
