About our Specialties
does a Recruitment Consultant do?
A recruitment consultant is the intermediary
between organizations seeking to recruit professional
staff (The Client) and professional staff
(The Candidate) seeking a career move or contract
assignment. However, this process has endless
variations and complications depending on
such factors as the skills and experience
required, the environment and career development
offered and just as importantly, the personality
fit. It is the physician recruitment consultant's
job to facilitate this exercise for both the
employer and the job seeker and to satisfy
part of this process is to obtain information
by talking to, and meeting with, people:
You talk to
and meet potential and existing clients to
find out about their organization,, their
culture, their current and future recruitment
needs and to develop a loyal and powerful
relationship with them so that they use JS
Medical and not our competitors when they
next recruit a professional. Since some clients
are not aware of, or are even skeptical about
the benefits of using JS Medical you also
have to "sell" to them those benefits.
You talk to
and meet job seekers to assess their skills
and experiences, their career goals, and their
suitability for different positions. The more
information and therefore the more knowledge
you have, the more opportunities you can make
to bring your clients and candidates together
in a successful match or placement. And while
JS Medical has a fine name in the marketplace
and provides considerable internal support,
YOU will largely make it happen for yourself
by being proactive, persistent and professional.
It is also
a common view that we are in the "human
resources" business but this is inaccurate.
While "professional recruitment and selection"
is a vitally important component of our clients'
human resources function, for us recruitment
is a "sales" business - we are "selling"
our services to our clients and the only difference
(albeit a significant one) between ours and
other business services is that our "product"
walks and talks and has an opinion about whether
it wants to be sold. Physician recruitment
in Michael Page International is a fast and
frenetic environment - it is no place for
you unless you can work at a brisk pace in
a highly charged work environment and can
cope with being constantly available and responsive
to your clients and your candidates. You will
also regularly experience the lows of rejection
and disappointment as well as the highs of
will make You successful?
Your attitude will make or break you. If you
are positive, motivated, persistent and well
organized you will succeed. It may take you
a while but if you have these tools and you
are an excellent listener, we will make every
resource available to help you fulfill your
Commitment is the key to your success in our
business. We are definitely not a 9 to 5 organization!
You must be prepared to put in the hours consistently
and make productive and creative use of your
time. In return, we can promise you are rewarding,
"work hard, play hard environment".
Particularly in the early stages of your career
at JS Medical your day is spent making telephone
call after telephone call to reach prospective
candidates and clients. This high level of
activity has a direct correlation to your
We rely on teamwork and so it is important
that you thrive on working within a team towards
a common goal, that you trust your team-mates
and they can trust you.
Recruitment requires sound judgment and keen
insight in to human nature. You rely on your
judgment when you make hundreds of decisions
every week on business opportunities and situations.
Other people rely on your judgment when you
are recommending they meet a candidate or
a client. Sound judgment will come from listening
and learning as well as experience and plain
