The opportunity

Now is a great time to join. The business is hiring because it is inundated with work. You'll have clients, vacancies and candidates from day one. Every employee knows that if they are working hard and making placements they will be given the option to grow a team around them and become a manager. The company's growth is achieved purely organically. In order to achieve their ambitious growth plans, this year's intake of Trainee Recruitment Consultants will quickly need to develop into the managers and directors of future years.

The Culture

A very strong set of cultural values underpins the business, creating a spirit of success, respect and fun within the teams. They are proud of the work hard / play hard culture with incentives including holiday targets and monthly "lunch-clubs" for the top performers on the team.
