  • Managing relationships with external recruitment agencies.

How to become a Recruitment Manager

SEEK Learning

To excel as a Recruitment Manager, you should hold a bachelor degree in a relevant field and knowledge of the hiring process and employment law. 

  1. Obtain a degree in business, psychology, human resources management, or a related field to meet the requirements.

  2. Begin in a non-managerial role, such as an entry-level Recruiter. This will open opportunities to let you explore and consider different recruiting areas. 

  3. Understand the employment laws considering the industry you work in. Refer to the Department of Labor and Employment's Labor Code, which includes employees' rights, employment contracts, and guides for all business sectors. 

  4. If available in your company, learn to use recruitment software such as ICIMS or Workday Recruiting. 

  5. Consider completing a certification such as CHRP (Certified Human Resource Professional) or the CRSP (Certified Recruitment and Selection Professional). 

  6. Consider a senior role in recruitment, such as a Senior Recruiter or Recruitment Consultant. 

  7. Pursue higher education, such as a master's degree, to further your knowledge and capabilities, preparing you for higher organizational roles.

  8. Seek promotion from a Recruitment Manager position to Senior Manager for Recruitment or Head of Human Resources. These higher roles are more strategic and focus on overall business outcomes.
