Job Description

Trainee Recruitment Consultant - London

London, UK

£18-£22k + OTE + Benefits + Uncapped Commission

Sick of reading recruitment job adverts offering 'pie in the sky' earnings like £100k year one? This is THE Trainee Recruitment job advert you've been hoping to find for your entire search so don't miss out.

What will you be doing?

  • Applying yourself daily, showing a great attitude, aptitude, initiative by spotting and acting on opportunities to generate revenue at pace.
  • Achieving set targets.
  • Sourcing candidates from a variety of sources including company database, job boards, LinkedIn and a variety of other social media and online platforms.
  • Building a strong understanding of your market.

Key Skills Required

  • Excellent communication skills (written and verbal)
  • Attention to detail and ability to analyse information
  • Interpersonal skills - Empathy, understanding, rapport building etc
  • Listening skills
  • Questioning skills
  • Research skills

Resilience - Things go wrong every day, YES, DAILY! Candidates' grandmas will die, clients will pull jobs or hire direct candidates, cars will break down, people will just not turn up for their interview. This sh*t happens, but how you deal with it shapes you as a Trainee Recruitment Consultant.

Ask yourself this question right now... CAN YOU DEAL WITH THAT?

Why should they hire you?

After all, you're in-experienced, unproven, not as commercially aware as those 12-months further on in their careers but we all have to start somewhere right?

  • You stand out from the crowd, differentiating yourself
  • You're naturally competitive and play to win, EVERY TIME
  • You love solving problems and you're naturally inquisitive (nosey even)
  • You're engaging and can command the conversation
  • You're an influencer, probably the one who dictates the bars you visit on a night out, but subtly (not in the manner of an absolute diva)
  • You have a great personality, people can't help but warm to you
  • You're sociable, a natural people person, you like people
  • You act with integrity at all times (you wouldn't sell your nan for money)

Why this company?

  • Proven track record of developing rookies and Trainee Recruitment Consultants into proven billers.
  • They always promote from within where possible.
  • People go there and grow, they stay and love working there.
  • They have various arms to their business including IT, Technical, Engineering, Professional Services and Commercial markets so there'll be something that interests you.
  • Great employer brand, benefits and reviews on places like Glassdoor.
  • Fantastic training, class room and 'on the job'
  • Loads of perks, winners trips abroad (think Vegas, Marbella etc) social activities, lunch clubs, parties and corporate events.

What does a typical day look like?

  • Sourcing candidates, screening advert response, business development, attending client meetings, interviewing and registering candidates (phone and face-to-face) marketing, headhunting, negotiating terms of business, closing deals, maintaining client relationships, hitting targets and KPI's.
  • Gym before work, breakfast at your desk, lunch at your desk, staying late to find that perfect candidate for an urgent job brief, drinks with colleagues after work, dinner, bed, repeat.
