The Michael Page Accountancy business in Reading has enormous growth potential and we're looking for people who want to be part of that success.
Our vision is to be the leading specialist recruiter in our chosen markets. With c. 6,000 employees in 36 countries across the globe, we specialise in a broad range of professions and industries.
PageGroup brands include:
It's not just about what we do - it's about how we do it. Our success is underpinned by a culture of putting people and teamwork first, and we're immensely proud of our reputation for professionalism and integrity.
Our values are reflected in everything we do, every day, all over the world.
PageGroup values are:
- Take pride
- Never give up
- Be passionate
- Work as a team
- Make it fun
They're an integral part of our business and help set us apart from our competitors.
We believe no-one can match the career opportunities we offer and we all work hard to make sure it stays that way.
The role of a PageGroup recruitment consultant combines business development and commercial customer service, generating revenue by successfully engaging with clients, candidates and colleagues.
The key responsibilities of a recruitment consultant include:
Identifying and developing client/business relationships in a competitive environment
Advising on and selling the most appropriate solution for attracting candidates and maintaining a candidate database
Assessing and responding to the needs of each particular client or assignment
Sourcing suitable candidates and briefing them on the opportunities offered by the client
Managing the process through interview to offer stage and beyond
Offering CV, interview and general career advice
Networking to build business information that can be converted into commercial opportunities
We know there are particular qualities that make people successful in our organisation.
Many of those skills are easily transferred from your current or past work experience - not necessarily in recruitment. Have you ever had to negotiate with someone? Had to adapt your approach depending on your audience? Ever had to push yourself to achieve the best result?
The ability to be compelling and persuasive, develop relationships and work as part of a team, meet targets and compete for the best results is what will set you apart as a successful recruitment consultant.
And recruitment can be tough; you must be able to overcome adversity.
This position is located in Reading with clients located across the Thames Valley
