You will develop an understanding of each Client’s needs in order to successfully match them with the best graduate talent.

Performance is rewarded with responsibility. We have a well laid out progression plan and there is the opportunity to grow into a Team Leader and / or Management

Why is this different to other recruitment jobs...

• The vast majority of the role will be managing recruitment processes for either established or new Clients. There will be minimal new business development. We have a Client Services team that does all our client acquisition. • We have a very large inbound candidate network. So you won’t need to stalk on LinkedIn to find candidates. • So if you love working with clients and placing candidates but you don’t enjoy the BD work or candidate attraction. Then this is a great opportunity for you. • We place a large number of candidates every month. With quite a few of our Clients this is on an ongoing basis. So we need people who are proactive, enjoy delivering a very high level of service and have the determination to get the job done.

Our ideal candidate would be along these lines...

We’re looking for someone who can fit into a team of high achievers. A great profile for us would be someone with: • A calm, persuasive & enthusiastic personality • Ambition and the drive to be successful • A sporting or extra-curricular activity • A confident & engaging telephone manner • A team focus and not someone who’s just out for themselves • Excellent organisation & takes pride in their work You would be joining a team of Consultants & Account Managers with experience levels ranging from 6 months - 4 years, so we're ideally looking for people within this range to join the team.
