Job Specification

Primary Objectives

Forging excellent relationships with your clients, you'll be tasked with filtering applications, reviewing CVs, vetting candidates, interviewing and assessing their skills - all before you recommend them for the job. Recruiting for executive positions, the calibre of both your clients and candidates will be high. So, you'll need to be highly knowledgeable about their industry, role and remits.

You should be motivated by an intellectually stimulating recruitment environment and challenge the 'norm.' Typically, you'll produce shortlists of candidates using either executive search headhunting and/or advertising methods. Then conduct initial interviews, before whittling the shortlist down even further.

Producing a detailed Search report and Interview Report, you'll then give your recommendations on candidate suitability either by presenting to or discussing with the client and arrange final interviews.

Part of the role will therefore be to conduct detailed research of the client, the industry of the role and the role requirements itself. You will also need to develop strong relationships with current and new clients.

Sales Training

You will be taught about how to develop meaningful relationships and leverage these relationships to win business for all the areas of the business. You will also learn about overcoming objections you will encounter, as well as being taught basic sales techniques and the markets you will be operating in.

What We Look For

1) Flexibility and Resilience - to keep you going in the tough times!

2) An aptitude to learn and develop - we have a great training facility so people who are keen to learn!

3) Great communication skills - important when speaking to clients and candidates!

4) A Commercial/Customer centric mindset - to have the ability to build the long-term relationships and make good business decisions!

5) Drive and personal responsibility - to help you be as successful as possible!

Key Characteristics: Confident, High Energy, Bright, Articulate, Hardworking, Resilient, Excellent communication skills, Inquisitive

Our rate of growth and ambition means that we need people with considerable career headroom. Put simply, we're looking to hire the top 10% who are able, and want, to progress quickly.

You don’t need to have sales experience; we focus simply on values and desire and will not compromise in either of these two areas. From a values perspective we seek people who have integrity, are sincere and caring in their dealings with others but also have the ability to be able to engage with senior stakeholders of large businesses and very experienced individuals.

Assuming you have the drive, we provide award-winning training and development at every stage of your career and an entrepreneurial recruitment environment where you are rewarded for thinking BIG.
