Role Profile

We are looking for talented graduates with a flair for business to join one of London's fastest growing specialist recruitment consultancies as Graduate Trainee Recruitment Consultants. Based in Fleet Street, central London, this niche recruitment business places candidate into commodity trading, energy technology, supply chain and procurement roles in London, UK and continental Europe.

We are looking for hard-working and goal-driven graduates who want to immerse themselves in a career in recruitment. If you are motivated by targets, incentives and money, have a willingness to learn, and first class communication skills there could be a role for you.

What you will be doing

  • Following your graduate induction course, you will be working as part of a larger team but specialising in your own market. Mentored by an experienced Recruitment Consultant you'll quickly get up-to-speed with your market place, understanding the supply and demand for skills and building a network of talented candidates.
  • From day one, you will work in a full recruitment life-cycle role, involving both generating candidates (advertising, head-hunting, referrals) and generating clients (cold/warm calling, client meetings, following up leads). You'll be working with an extensive database of candidates and existing clients including Goldman Sachs, Barclays, Accenture, Deloitte, McKinsey, BP, Centrica, BT, GSK, L'Oreal, Burberry and Apple.
  • You'll manage the recruitment process for your clients, taking job requirements, arranging interviews, preparing candidates for interview, negotiating salaries and hourly rates for specialist temporary contracts and making placements.
  • Promotion is meritocratic, based purely on your personal billing, where you are encouraged to take on more and more responsibility as you develop to Senior Recruitment Consultant, Manager and Director.

Your Training

As a Graduate Trainee Recruitment Consultant you'll receive formal, class room training working through 30 tailor-made training course modules which include Candidate Qualification, Advert Writing, Head-hunting, Cold-Call Business Development, Retainer Pitching, Booking Meetings, Rapport Building, Reference Taking and Being a "Green Consultant".

As well as your class room training a huge part of your development will be on-the-job coaching from your mentor, going on meetings with your manager and shadowing the "top billers".

What we are looking for

  • Bachelors degree in any subject (2nd class or above or predicted 2016 graduate).
  • A strong work ethic, for example demonstrated by academics, sport, music, entrepreneurial exploits, working whilst at university or working in Summer/Winter/Easter holidays.
  • Track record of taking responsibility - This could include being part of a university committee, sports or society (President, Club Captain, Treasurer, Secretary, Social Secretary), running your own business, team leading or taking on greater responsibility in work experience or commercial roles, undertaking a work placement, summer work or post graduate experience.

What's on offer

  • Starting basic salary of £20,000 which increases to £23,000 after your third placement and to £30,000 on promotion to Senior Recruitment Consultant.
  • Uncapped commission scheme based purely on your personal billing from the previous month and paid on a monthly basis. Previously, Graduate Trainees have earned over £25,000 in their first year and "top billers" earn over £100,000 per annum.
  • Additional Incentives - cash prizes, Lunch Clubs at Michelin Star restaurants, Team Nights Out, Team building events (e.g. Dodgeball, Quasar, Virtual Golf, Go-karting, Rounders in Hyde Park, Bowling, Poker Night, Rock Climbing, Pool, Table Tennis and Zorb Football); 3 Company Holidays Every Year - skiing in Switzerland (March), Summer Holiday in Portugal (June), Top Billers Holiday in Las Vegas (December)
  • Subsidised Gym Membership, Flexi-hour - 1 hour of core work time off work every week, Blackberries or iPhones - for Senior Consultants and above
