A life in recruitment – changing lives not jobs

Working in recruitment isn’t about placing people in jobs, it is all about changing people’s lives and that of their families for the better.

A survey carried out by the Recruitment & Employment Confederation (REC) asked people to list their most important life decisions, 77% of respondents put finding the right job at the top, ahead of getting married, deciding where to live and starting a family. 

Help individuals and industry to succeed

We create opportunities that help people to achieve their ambitions and to be happy and fulfilled in their daily lives. Furthermore, recruitment is about helping organisations to find the talented people that need to compete, expand and meet their potential in the marketplace. Yes, it is a huge responsibility and a lot of hard work, but we think it is one of the most rewarding and satisfying careers you can choose.

Of course we can only speak for our organisation, but with ARM a career in recruitment offers fantastic prospects, clear career progression, attractive bonuses and incentives. What is more, you get to work alongside talented people that care just as much as you do about helping people to succeed and making a difference. Don’t just take our word for it.

Ben Wiggins swapped the 4:30am alarm that came with his seven-year career in grocery retail, to become one of our automotive recruitment specialists.  “The office is quite different from my previous role - it is warm for a start!  It is a great environment, there are a variety of characters around the office and everyone is friendly and always willing to help - regardless of what the situation or task is.” 

A career that makes you feel alive everyday

Today, Ben specialises in placing engineers in roles involving powertrain development, which is a rapidly growing area that responds to the environmental need for greener and cleaner fuels. He says: “No two days are the same. I am now in a career that excites and motivates me, in an industry that I am also very passionate about- it makes you feel alive.”

With the Office for National Statistics reporting in October 2015 that UK employment hit a record high of 73.6% of the working population in employment, and the REC indicating placements have increased for 36 consecutive months, now is a great time to think about a career in recruitment.

Every person’s route to recruitment is different but what they all share is a desire to progress in their own lives and use their unique skills and talents to help other people and organisations to do the same.
