Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Are you not sure whether a career in recruitment is for you? We've answered some of the most frequently asked questions to help you make a decision.

Recruitment, or external recruitment, is a sales job that ultimately revolves around matching candidates to jobs of our client companies. It also involves proactively approaching said candidates as well as clients, which is also called business development. At Franklin Fitch, we offer different career paths which can be divided in the following: 360° Recruitment, which involves active sourcing of candidates as well as proactive business development; Delivery Recruitment or 180° Recruitment, which is focussed on delivering matching candidate profiles to existing client job requirements.

As a recruiter, you will be:

  • Actively sourcing matching candidates for the requirements of our clients' vacancies
  • Proactively approaching new clients, also called business development
  • Managing client relationships as well as key accounts, building lasting trusted partnerships with our clients
  • communicating via phone, email, social media channels and in face-to-face meetings
  • building you personal brand with the help of our marketing team


We run our Academies in all our offices. They take care of on-the-job training for the first 6 to 12 months of your recruitment career. The Academy gives you all the necessary tools to become our next top biller and is a mixture of classroom as well as on-desk training and coaching and mentoring.

As believers in lifelong learning the training doesn't stop after the Academy though. We provide training, mentoring and coaching by internal as well as external experts throughout your career up to Directorship.

You can find more information on our dedicated Academy page.

We operate a very fun but focussed atmosphere in all our offices. The culture in all teams is a very supportive and friendly one. Our teams go through the recruitment rollercoaster together, learning from each other's triumphs and failures alike.

We strive for excellence in everything we do, we act with integrity, build trusted relationships throughout, and are committed to our employees', clients', and candidates' success.
