Being a recruiter in the IT Sector can be really challenging specially in the London market where candidates are receiving an overwhelming amount of job openings in a daily basis.
I had the opportunity to experience both sides of the coin in the London market being IT Agent in a massive IT Agency and currently an In-house recruiter in a IT Multinational consultancy.
Although at first glance the role tittle seems pretty similar an In-house Recruiter has to master a wide set of skills/capabilities to be successful in his/her daily tasks.
Have a look at this article which I found interesting and also do not forget the following quote as is one of the key added value of an In-House Recruiter!
One of the key objectives for in-house recruiters is to provide a great candidate experience from the start to the finish, irrespective of outcome. Whilst booking rooms out, sending interview confirmations, and organising a hiring manager’s diary are all important - you should never forget that providing a fantastic candidate experience is essential, as it will reflect well on you and your company.
