ASSOCIATE RECRUITMENT CONSULTANT
Have you considered a career in recruitment?
Recruitment is a fantastic career for graduates – it’s fast-paced and dynamic, every day you'll make a lasting impact.
As a Recruiter, you’ll manage your own business and work in a commercial and entrepreneurial environment. You’ll source candidates, win business and match the right candidate to the right job.
It's hard work as you'll have to hit sales and activity targets (and we have high expectations at Hays) but a career in recruitment is extremely rewarding – you can earn great commission and become a manager in just a few years.
We are the most successful recruitment company in the U.K, placing more than one candidate into a job every minute of every business day. We’re global and operate all across the UK&I, working with many of the biggest companies and a wide range of smaller businesses.
We've been voted one of the UK’s best companies to work for by Glassdoor and we're the most followed recruitment company globally on LinkedIn. If you’re starting a career in recruitment there’s no better company than Hays.
What you'll need to succeed
There's not one typical person that makes a good Recruiter…and unlike other agencies we don’t need you to have previous recruitment or sales experience.
To succeed you'll need to be sales driven, results-focused, and possess an ambitious drive to succeed. Recruitment is hard work and it takes time to achieve results so resilience, persistence and determination is key. You need to be passionate about sales, people-focused, outgoing and confident.
What you'll get in return
As a Recruiter 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 an expert and have access to the best tools and technology in the industry.
You’ll also receive:

- Referral bonuses of up to £2000 per individual
We also have a range of employee benefits to choose from including:

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 salary) and high performing individuals can be fast-tracked into management roles within just a few years
It's hard work and we expect excellence but if you deliver the results your earning potential and career progression know no limits.
