The fast paced and changeable nature of a temporary recruitment environment is as challenging as it can be attractive to many people.  As much as you need to have great organisation and time management skills, you’ll also need a flexible, adaptable approach because your day will change – clients will phone in bookings at inconvenient times and candidates will drop-in with queries and issues when you’re trying to get on with other things.  The worst way of dealing with this is to get frustrated because your focus has been broken  - you’ll drive yourself crazy in no time at all!  Embrace changes to your day and try and remain flexible – this is not a boring job and you probably wouldn’t enjoy it if it was.
