Job Description

Birmingham– Recruitment Consultant

£18-20k + OTE + Benefits + Uncapped Commission

Looking to kick start a career in Birmingham but don’t know where to start? Sick of scrolling through ad’s promising you £100K OTE in year one? If you are money motivated and driven then we have got the career for you! We are looking for confident, determined people who are ready to immerse themselves in the recruitment world..

This is a genuine opportunity for you to not only start but develop your career as a Trainee Recruitment Consultant - working your way up the career ladder in a fast paced, competitive environment, earning uncapped commission on top of your base salary + benefits! If you’re a natural people person, and would like the opportunity to make a positive impact on people’s lives, read on and apply below!

The role of a Trainee Recruitment Consultant is extremely varied so here’s a snap shot of what your day to day would look like:

  • Sourcing the best talent for your vacancies by head hunting through a variety of different databases, jobs boards, social media platforms etc
  • Talking to people, building relationships with both candidates and clients
  • You will manage your candidates through the recruitment process, finding out what makes them tick and landing them their dream job
  • Working as a Trainee Recruitment Consultant certainly has its challenges at times but the rewards without a doubt outweigh them.

What can this role offer you?

  • Competitive basic salary (obvs)
  • Brilliant bonus scheme paying upwards of £40k OTE
  • Great tools for the job including CRM, marketing, referral schemes etc.
  • Loads of great incentives (they hire winners and take them all over the world)

We need you to be...

  • Streetwise (can you tell a 'wrong un' from a 'right un' ?)
  • Witty (life is too short for boring)
  • Competitive (you play to win, not make the numbers up)
  • Self-starter (what's going to make you attack the day vs switching the TV on?)
  • A social media guru (you need to be a beacon of recruiting excellence on LinkedIn)
  • Above all an honest, ethical recruiter
