ROLE OF THE EMPLOYMENT SPECIALIST
 
The Employment Specialist – the inside sales person – in an office plays a vital role because the Staffing Consultant is the link between both the client companies and the associates (temporary employees). The Staffing Consultant consistently exercises discretionary judgment in administering systems and procedures in recruiting, hiring, and assigning associates to clients within the territory. The Staffing Consultant is also responsible for retaining qualified associates and for inside sales, including responsibility for increasing sales and hours by making telephone sales calls for a portion of each day.
 
If a Staffing Consultant can assign a high percentage of associates and keep a greater number of associates working longer, the results are increased revenue, reduced recruiting costs, and better service to clients.
 
Clients appreciate and come back for quality service. The Staffing Consultant takes the job order, assigns the associate, and follows up to ensure client satisfaction. The quality of service causes a client company to select one staffing service over another.
 
Service is based on people, and people are never perfect. However, a good Staffing Consultant can smooth out difficulties resulting from human imperfections and assure both quality and quantity in terms of associates and assignments.

The Staffing Consultant must meet the following objectives regularly to be successful.
 
1. Maintain an extremely high-level of daily activity to fill all job orders with urgency.
a. Fill 100% of all qualified job orders as rapidly as possible.
