My client is a specialist recruiter with offices in central Reading servicing clients nationally and throughout Europe. This is a genuinely exciting opportunity to join as a trainee with a clear career path to Consultant level and beyond.
This is not a sales role, you will receive full training as you develop from a Candidate Resourcer to a Recruitment Consultant on a warm desk - this just means that there will be existing clients waiting for you rather than you starting from scratch. Recruitment demands a wide range of skills including account management of your own set of clients i.e. understanding their needs, finding candidates, building a rapport and developing the business. This will involve a lot of contact by phone and e-mail as well as occasional face to face meetings.
Enthusiasm and attitude are more important than experience as full training is given so a wide range of backgrounds will be considered including recent graduates. Successful candidates will be
- enthusiastic with a willing attitude
- confident, strong communicators both verbal and written
- quick to learn and assimilate information
