The Benefits of Working for an SME as a Recruiter…


So, are you a recruiter who often sets your sights on big corporations and multinational companies? Do you also feel as though you will become more successful joining a ‘well-known’ brand? If you do, take a second to read this short blog as I explain the benefits of working for an SME (us😉), you might just change your mind!

  • Personalised Experience

One of the most significant advantages of working for an SME recruitment company is the personalised experience it offers. Unlike large companies, SMEs tend to have smaller teams, which means you’ll have the opportunity to work more closely with your colleagues and get to know them on a personal level. This can create a sense of camaraderie and teamwork, which is often challenging to achieve in larger organisations. It also enables a more direct line of communication, fostering a more supportive and collaborative work environment.

SMEs are often known for their leaner structures and resourceful approaches to business. As an SME recruitment company employee, you’re likely to have a broader scope of responsibilities. You may be involved in various aspects of the recruitment process, from sourcing candidates and conducting interviews to client interactions and business development. This diversity can help you acquire a wide range of skills and knowledge, making your experience more well-rounded and versatile which means you can grow into the best Recruitment Consultant ever!

  • Faster & Clearer Career Growth

Oh, the most important one for me! In an SME recruitment company, the potential for career growth can be more rapid and rewarding. You’ll find that you can actually see the effort of your contributions and how valuable you are to the company. Often this leads to quicker progression and most SME’s also have a very clear career path.. well we do anyway! Every milestone, every success, you’ll see the direct impact of your hard work shaping the company’s journey. And we all cheer you on along the way!

  • Strong Company Culture

SMEs often pride themselves on fostering strong company cultures. They tend to be more agile in adapting to the needs and preferences of their employees. This means they are better equipped to offer a work environment that aligns with your values and priorities. If you’re looking for a company that values work-life balance, a collaborative atmosphere, and a shared sense of purpose, an SME recruitment firm might be the perfect fit. Let’s take an example from Accountancy Action, after all, it’s our blog so we can do a shameless plug all we like😆 Within the past few years our colleagues have traveled to amazing places such as Nashville, Antigua, Vegas, a Cruise around the Med, Mykonos and so much more! I don’t think I’ve seen this in bigger corporations and often when I do the targets are pretty much unreachable.

  • Learning Opportunities

You often tend to learn more in an SME, as a smaller team means clearer communication and everyone is more likely to help each other out.
