Job description

In this Junior Recruitment Consultant job in London, you will be responsible for a fundamental part of the company’s recruitment process - managing applications, sourcing, screening, and interviewing candidates. You’ll be working closely with Senior Recruitment Consultant’s, supporting them by ensuring there is a suitable talent pipeline in place for our vacancies. This is a varied graduate sales role, where you’ll also get the chance to work alongside other senior members of the business and gain an insight into the client and commercial side of the business.

Your professional development is taken seriously; after demonstrating success as a Graduate Consultant, you’ll develop your career as a Consultant and start taking the reins on candidate and client projects and be directly responsible for your own revenue stream within the business. If you like the idea of managing and developing client relationships, helping graduates start their career, whilst learning the core skills to becoming a high achieving Account Manager, then this is a great opportunity for you.

Key responsibilities

In this Trainee Recruitment Consultant job in London, you will be responsible for:

  • Contacting all new applicants on the system via phone, video and e-mail
  • Having in-depth discussions with candidates to understand their career aspirations, as well as discussing their suitability for roles and sectors
  • Ensuring all candidates receive responses to their application, delivering clear and constructive feedback
  • Building your commercial knowledge of sectors and roles within the world of early careers
  • Providing detailed shortlists of candidates when new client briefs come in
  • Ensuring all administration is up to date on a daily basis – our top revenue generators are both great communicators and exceptionally organised

  • Attending client briefing calls (and meetings when possible) to understand the nature of the roles you are working on and strengthen business ties
  • Identifying and researching new business prospects and working in conjunction with the Business Development team to further expand our network.

Job requirements

  • A great work ethic twinned with a strong commercial track record of success
  • Evidence of having worked in a busy client-centric environment — we are ideally looking for someone who has prior experience within sales and has evidence hitting and exceeding targets
  • Commercial maturity — this role is heavily consultative. Initially, you will work with candidates, but you will then quickly gain exposure to consulting with key clients within the business.
  • Top organisation skills - you will be supporting a team of busy Consultants who will brief you on up to 12 roles at any one time
  • A positive mindset and self-motivation you’ll need to be competitive and money motivated, whilst being able to bounce back and adapt to rejections
  • Excellent time management and a high level of attention to detail
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Strong problem-solving skills - the ability to adapt and cope well with unexpected problems, to work through issues and around any objection
  • High level of empathy - showing empathy creates great relationships - showing you understand their unique challenges and perspectives
