Recruitment specialists help their companies or organizations fill vacancies by evaluating candidates and building networks of potential recruiters. They share many duties with recruiters but take a more practical role in evaluating a candidate’s CVs and credentials. In many organizations, hiring specialists work with recruiters and hiring managers to conduct screening interviews and determine which candidates will be called back for further interviews.
Recruitment specialists may help develop and publish job listings in order to recruit high-level talent. Increasingly, recruitment professionals are also using social media and other web-based services to network and identify high performing applicants for jobs within the organization.
