Hales Group are looking to hire a Recruitment Consultant to join their team in Lowestoft.
Recruitment consultants act as the vital link between clients and candidates and therefore need great people skills. You’ll use sales, business development, marketing techniques and networking to attract business from client companies; build positive relationships to gain a better understanding of their industry, what they do, their work culture, environment and their recruitment needs. You’ll use social media to advertise positions, attract candidates and then screen candidates, interview them, run background checks and finally match them to clients. You’ll organise interviews for candidates and inform them about the results of the interviews. You’ll negotiate salaries and finalise arrangements between clients and candidates and provide advice where needed.
The role can be challenging, but also exciting as the profession is fast-paced and target driven. Work is predominantly office based but time is also spent outside the office, meeting with clients and interviewing candidates, therefore a smart personal appearance is important.
For your application to be considered you'll need to show evidence of the following:
• excellent interpersonal and communication skills
• sales and negotiation skills
• a goal-orientated approach to work
• the ability to handle multiple priorities
• problem-solving ability
• the ability to meet deadlines and targets
• ambition and the determination to succeed
• confidence and self-motivation
• time management and organisational skills
• team-working skills
You must also enjoy working in a high-pressure environment and the responsibility that comes with it. Recruitment industry experience is preferred however previous success in a customer-facing sales role would be considered for someone looking to start a career in recruitment, providing they can also demonstrate the right combination of skills and personal qualities.
This role offers a competitive basic salary plus a generous performance-related commission structure. The company also offers a comprehensive benefits package including contributory pension, life assurance, income protection and subsidised private health insurance, increasing holiday with service and your birthday off as a gift from the company.
