What is a Generalist Recruiter?

A generalist recruiter is one who recruits for a wide range of roles across various industries and locations. Unlike specialist recruiters, generalists are able to work on a variety of posts and tend to have a wide range of candidates to draw from. They can face a challenge from clients who may prefer someone with specialised knowledge of a particular industry or job with a specific skill set.
