Recruitment Consultant cover letter example. Amend as suitable and use it with your applications.
Most recruitment consultants would be expected to have a degree or relevant work experience and so it is important to mention this in your cover letter. Any work experience in sales, marketing or even any role where dealing with customers is important would be of use and so again, worth mentioning in the cover letter. There is also a selection of skills that you would need for the job and you should briefly be able to demonstrate that you have these, either by specific examples or from previous roles that you have held that would have required them.
These skills include communication, customer service, telephone, negotiation, sales, prioritising, problem-solving, time management, reaching deadlines, working under pressure, ambition, confidence, organisation , team working and creativity. There are a lot of things to cover there, but those with work experience as a recruitment consultant would not need to demonstrate their ability to do so as much as those without.
It can be an entry level job and so work experience is not always necessary but the applicant ill need to sell themselves well. Any membership of student societies is certainly worth a mention. As it is a very competitive area for jobs, it means the cover letter really needs to sell the applicant. Cover Letter Recruitment Consultant

Dear Mrs Smith
I am interested in the post of IT Recruitment Consultant, advertised on XYZ website this week, and enclose my CV for consideration.
I have developed my career in recruitment consultancy to the point where I would now like to specialise in the exceptionally strong technology sector. During my time at DEF Agency, I have managed the recruitment needs of a number of large IT firms and have developed an expertise in the sector, its technical and skills requirements and most effective selection methods. I consider myself to be a positive, focused and approachable consultant and I believe that these qualities have brought new clients to my current and previous employers.
My success lies in my ability to engage with all kinds of people, network effectively within the IT and other sectors and select valuable candidates with the right skills and potential. I believe that I am capable of exceeding the requirements of this role and would like to be given the chance to contribute to ABC Company’s success.
I am interested in finding out more and will phone in a few days to check if I can have an informal discussion with you about the post. I would be delighted to attend for interview and I can be contacted on (phone number) or at (e-mail address).
Thank you for your consideration.
