Personality important for particular positions

The personality of a person applying for a job vacancy can have a lot to do with whether they are offered a job or not, it has been stated.

Russell Crowe, managing director at retail recruiter Retail Kudos, told Recruiter that depending upon the type of job a person is applying for, personality can be one of the biggest factors in whether they are appropriate for the role in question.

He said: "You look at the client's culture and community from a helicopter perspective and seek like-minded individuals. We recruit for a market leading opticians which has a professional and polished culture. That's what you match against.

"Other clients, such as a trend-led fashion retailer, have a larger than life culture and would require more outgoing personalities from their staff. It comes down to personality."

Louise Wright, director at Oyster Retail Recruitment, added to Recruiter that employers don't want to "mould" a person into a personality, they want someone who already has the type of personality they require.

Being strong in face-to-face interviews is also important when going for a job interview, Interviewgold.com recently stated.ADNFCR-1196-ID-18946736-ADNFCR
