The Skills That Will Set You Apart in Media Recruitment.

To be the best in the media recruitment field, you need skills that set you apart. This is what you need to do to excel.

Excellent Listening Skill

Great recruiters will employ active listening skills in order to clearly establish what their clients are looking for. Sometimes clients can accurately verbalise this in a clear way, but in many cases the recruiter will need to tease out information by asking the right questions.


Recruiters all possess excellent levels of confidence, and this is particularly essential in the media recruitment world, where individuals in the industry are likely to be extroverted, demanding and successful in their field.

Communication Skills

Great communicators will always get ahead in recruitment by knowing how to communicate perfectly on a verbal, written and non-verbal level.

Marketing Skills

Recruiters need to be able to effectively promote themselves and their professional service in this competitive world in order to secure new business and get repeat custom.

A Focus on Targets

Ultimately, recruitment success is all about hitting targets, which are often extremely challenging. Recruiters will rapidly get noticed by their employers if they keep exceeding these targets.


You absolutely must be able to deliver in media recruitment – every time. Reputation is key in this fast-paced world, and once lost it is difficult to regain. Great recruiters will go above and beyond to successfully deliver for their clients.

Relationship-Building Skills

By working on relationships, great recruiters can get repeat business from happy clients and have a ready pool of candidates who are ready to engage with them and have faith in their ability to secure a great placement.


Top recruiters are speedy and efficient, recognising that the recruitment world is fast-paced and that clients need to be matched up with top talent as quickly as possible.

The Ability to Multi-Task

The profession is demanding, which means that the ability to multi-task is key, whether you are calling a client, reporting against targets, emailing a candidate, updating social media accounts or managing a desk.

IT and Social Media Skills

Modern recruitment requires a strong knowledge of digital and social media skills in order to engage with clients and candidates via the platforms they operate on.

Can you say that you possess all of these skills and demonstrate them consistently?

Surviving Your First Week in Top Publishing Jobs in London.

If you’ve been lucky enough to bag yourself one of the best publishing jobs in London, then you’ll want to impress in your first week in role.

It’s fair to say that publishing jobs in London are hotly contested for, and candidates successful in obtaining a role will have to work hard to impress and really stand out from the crowd in order to get their foot in the door.

If you have worked hard enough to secure yourself a role, you’ll want to make sure you shine in your first week. Here are some tips to get you started.

Dress Right

Most publishing jobs in London require you to look professional and smart. If you aren’t sure, then err on the side of caution and over-dress on the professional front. You can always tone it down to a more casual look if you find that your new colleagues are a little more informal in their dress code. Remember, however, that you want to look keen and respectful, and the right clothing can help to achieve both aims.


When you are new in role, the temptation might be to try to show how much you know. However, those successful in the best publishing jobs in London tend to be excellent listeners before they are speakers. When your new boss, team-mates and other stakeholders talk to you, make sure you listen. You will pick up some gems of knowledge that really help you to be effective from the start.

Deliver Quickly

One good way to get noticed is to make sure you deliver straight away on your tasks and objectives. If you have a project, get stuck straight into it. If you don’t, then ask for one. Show that you are hungry to succeed by working hard. People respect hard work and effort, and you will find that this takes you far. Show that you are an achiever and more senior people will be interested.


Use your new job to get you out and about and meeting people within the business. Learn names and roles quickly to find out who you can help in their role – and who can help you. This will allow you to make a good impression by saying hello and being courteous as you settle into your new job.

So, in essence, look the part, listen carefully, get to know names quickly and get out there and start impressing everyone with your work. Contact us if you need more information.
