What can I earn as a recruitment manager in London?

You may also be known as…

Manager – recruitment and operations, resourcing manager, HR adviser (resourcing), or staffing manager, although this list of titles is not exhaustive.

What you need to succeed…

Educated to degree level and/or with graduate membership of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), you need a minimum of three years’ experience at HR officer level.

Ideally, you will have experience of interviewing techniques and detailed knowledge of employment legislation. Larger organisations may also require experience of managing high-volume recruitment campaigns and of managing and developing a team.

What is involved…

You will primarily be responsible for the recruitment, selection and retention of staff, sometimes to a certain grade or within a specific function. This is likely to include all staff movements – for example, leavers, internal transfers, international relocations and maternity arrangements.

The person in this role is usually responsible for associated administrative procedures – monitoring, reviewing and amending processes and procedures in line with changes in company policy and employment law.

You will also manage relationships with external recruitment consultancies and advertising agencies, testing and occupational health organisations and relevant statutory bodies.

A further area of responsibility could be new employee induction.

Prospects are…

Demand for skilled, experienced recruitment professionals is pretty constant, although it does tend to be the larger organisations that have the need and resources to recruit for this role. Many smaller organisations will include recruitment within the role of a generalist HR officer or manager.
