I was fortunate enough to attend @BillBoorman 's #TruAustralia event in Sydney last week, and one of the tracks centered around the qualities we believe make a great recruiter.
The usual superlatives came up but a common theme was tenacity and or resilience. In the end we agreed that these were two separate qualities; both important to the core elements we saw in other successful recruiters.
It got me thinking, what would I request next time I order a perfect recruiter?
Recruitment seems simple - you don't need to be a rocket scientist, degree qualified or even highly experienced to do well. You can be any age, with any motivation and still succeed at this job, and every recruiter I meet is more unique than a snowflake.
Do you agree? What do you think is the most important soft skill / quality a recruiter must have?
