RECRUITMENT CONSULTANT – HAYS, LEEDS

Your new job in recruitment

Recruitment is fast-paced and dynamic, every day you'll make a lasting impact. As a Recruitment Consultant you'll source candidates and win business from clients and match the right candidate to the right job to make fees. It's hard work as you'll have to hit both sales and activity targets (and we have high expectations here at Hays) but a career in recruitment is extremely rewarding.

About us

Hays is the most successful specialist recruitment company in the UK, placing more than one candidate into a new job every minute of every business day. We've been awarded the #1 best recruitment company to work for in the UK, and the #1 best recruitment company to interview with by Glassdoor.

Hays are currently recruiting for Trainee and Experienced Recruitment Consultants to work across a number of our specialist divisions in our Yorkshire flagship office, based in Leeds city centre.

What you'll need to succeed with us

There's not one typical person that makes a good Recruitment Consultant. We've got people from all kinds of backgrounds – graduates, non-graduates, sales professionals, retailers, ex-tradespeople, people from hospitality or real estate… and unlike other agencies we don’t need you to have previous recruitment experience.

To succeed in recruitment you'll need to demonstrate that you're sales driven, results-focused, and possess an ambitious drive to succeed. Recruitment is hard work and it takes time and perseverance to achieve results so resilience, persistence and determination is key. You need to be passionate about sales, people-focused, outgoing and confident.

Due to the nature of the role, you must have a full UK driving licence to be considered for these roles.

What you'll get in return from us

As a Recruitment Consultant at Hays you'll run your own business but be given the support of our market-leading brand, receive world-class training to help you become a recruiting expert and have access to the best tools and technology in the industry.

You’ll also receive:

• A competitive base salary

• Uncapped commission

• Incentives and rewards

• Referral bonuses of up to £2000 per individual

We also have a range of generous employee benefits to choose from including:

• Discounted gym membership

• Annual season ticket loans

• Healthcare and dental care plans

• The ability to buy extra holidays

• Generous shopping discounts and savings

We operate a meritocratic culture where you are rewarded and recognised based on your results, the chance to get promoted at nine months (with an increase to your base at that time) and high performing individuals can be fast-tracked into management roles within a few years, as well as the chance to relocate to different parts of the UK or around the world. It's hard work and we expect excellence but if you deliver the results your earning potential and career progression knows no limits.
