Trainee Recruitment Consultant

Company: Our client is a market-leading recruitment consultancy firm located in the heart of London. They are looking for highly driven, individuals to join their team of high performing consultants.

They currently have offices in London, New York, Munich and Hong Kong and have plans to open 2 new locations in Dubai and Amsterdam by 2024.

Company Culture: They have found a good balance between prolific work ethic and ambition with an exciting social side, often hosting huge office parties and taking consultants on all expenses paid holidays to Ibiza and Las Vegas. They also have a strong entrepreneurial spirit, whereby consultants are determined to grow both as individuals and in their careers. The company compliment this by taking consultants on external sales courses, most recently treating them to a "Sales Master Class" by Jordan Belfort himself. Consultants are given extensive autonomy; an unlimited holiday allocation being a perfect example of this.
