Recruitment Consultant (Trainee)

Being a Recruitment Consultant means…..

You will be doing everything from calling clients (existing clients and resourcing new ones), finding suitable candidates and registering them and filling permanent or temporary roles. We encourage all consultants to treat their desk like their own business and develop their own network and pipeline while we provide the right support and training to enable you to do so. A lot of our business is done over the phone, so you’ll need to be comfortable and confident dealing with people through this method.

This is a fast-paced, busy role with some fantastic rewards for those who are willing to put in the hard work. You will be using your personality and communication skills to excel whilst building trust with our clients. You will also be networking with candidates to generate sales leads, developing your pipeline and managing your accounts.
