The recruitment industry is constantly expanding
With the uncertainty created by the COVID-19 pandemic still lingering, people are keen to find jobs that have some level of security. According to a recent study, between 2008 and 2018, the recruitment industry grew on average 27% per year. Why is this? Well, the recruitment industry is constantly expanding and adapting and can continue to grow throughout periods of economic uncertainty.
Let's look at the past year for example. Lots of people (sadly) lost their jobs due to COVID-19. While that is, of course, devastating for these individuals, it does mean that the recruitment industry has become more important than ever. As a recruiter, you'll be helping people from all kinds of situations, whether they've recently made redundant or are simply looking for a career change, you become an important part of their job hunting journey.

Recruiters are important & valuable!
People don't realise how valuable recruiters are until they're looking for their dream job. A lot of the time, people looking for jobs (or companies looking to hire) are incredibly busy, meaning the recruitment process is rushed, put-off, or even given up on all together! Having a recruiter who can help you find your dream job (or the perfect candidate) can save a lot of time and money. After all, hiring someone who's a bad fit for a job can cause so many problems later down the line.
For that reason, recruitment has become a very important and well-respected industry to work in. A lot of big companies wouldn't have the talented workforce they have today if it wasn't for highly skilled and dedicated recruiters doing a lot of the leg work for them.
