If you’ve just started your journey in the world of recruitment, you’re in the right place. Undoubtedly, you’ve probably got many questions about recruitment, and you may even be apprehensive because there’s a lot to learn. However, I was in your shoes once, as were the recruiters on each episode I’ve listed below.

My main motivation for starting the podcast was to provide valuable resources for recruiters, so they could grow and develop their careers without limits. 

So, without further ado – here are the top 5 episodes to listen to if you’re starting out in recruitment!

This is the perfect episode for new recruiters who are struggling to make their first deal. Although the feeling of placing a candidate or winning a new client is great, it can often take a little longer for some recruiters. 

James and I unpack this in detail in this episode, as well as covering how he progressed from billing £0 in his first 12 months, through to achieving “Top Biller” status in his agency as well as leading a team.

I loved recording this episode with Melissa! Not only does she have 8+ years of recruitment experience, but she talks about her journey as a graduate through to a manager. 

You’ll get some excellent advice on client relationship building in this episode as well as building a winning mindset.

This was a poignant episode, as Amy delves into day plans, the power of organisation and maximising your desk. She also started recruitment as a graduate and progressed to Director status within 6 years, and her story is incredibly inspiring – especially if you’re a female in recruitment!

This episode with Susan is a deep-dive into “landing and expanding” clients, which may sound like something you’d aspire to start doing once you’re well-versed in recruitment, however, it’s never too early to start working smart with the clients you do have. 

We often get caught up in the buzz of new business that we forget the importance of nurturing the clients that you already have.

Not only was Connor Hey a trainee priest (you heard it here first), but he’s also had to navigate building his desk during the Covid-19 pandemic. For many recruiters, this will be your current reality. 

Connor articulates his journey in recruitment with complete clarity, and an episode I’d highly recommend for anyone who has just started out in recruitment.
