This desk suits a trainee or experienced Recruiter. It's the biggest in the country. By biggest, we mean it has the biggest population. Big population = big opportunity.

No prizes for guessing, it's London. We have lots of friends there. However, London is a territory we have dipped in and out of but have never had a dedicated consultant covering solely. Why not? I hear you ask. That's exactly what we thought and now it's time to change that.

For trainees, we advise:

1. It's a fantastic thrill when your client hires your candidate, everyone is happy and you earn a ££££ fee.

2. A career as a Recruitment Consultant comes with other perks. All expenses paid trips at home and abroad are commonplace, as are weekly and monthly competitions for other rewards, such as bonus holiday days and other nice little prizes.

3. To create interviews that earn fees you will need to persuade companies to let you work for them and people to let you represent them as candidates. Most will not succeed. You need several candidates for each vacancy.

4. You need to face that reality every day to organise enough interviews to hit your targets.

5. These things make it quite 'salesey'. Not everyone finds the targets easy and not everyone is comfortable with the 'pressure' of this reality.

For experienced recruiters it's:

Our commission structure rewards good and great performers better than any other in the recruitment industry... I'll just let that sink in a moment.

AND it enables us to give trainees, grads, and junior consultants, the longest possible amount of time to learn the ropes and become consistently productive.

Experienced recruiters can look forward to:

  • Rewarded mentoring and team leadership opportunities combined with a
  • Value linked appraisal and career progression scheme
  • Share scheme and multi-layered additional bonus scheme
  • All the perks of a high-performance recruitment agency such as regular comps for chocolates & champagne, extra holiday days, social events, Michelin star Christmases, cookery classes in Barcelona, beach (& clubbing) weekends in Ibiza, sunset yacht cruises in Mallorca and cultural experiences in Prague (Absinthe optional).
  • On the serious side there's exhibiting at the NEC, industry conferences to learn at and training events to really hone your expertise.

Health and Social Care recruitment is our thing. We have an extensive track record in this noblest and most recession-proof of sectors.

We have a well-established and recognisable brand. A brand recently enhanced by some exciting developments and we are moving offices to a brand new fit out in Altrincham. That is one step of a new 5 year business plan in which everyone has a stake.

Either way, we ask for:

  1. A high baseline standard of written English
  2. Professionalism and consistent effort
  3. Realistic targets to be achieved
  4. Senior Consultant positions require prior experience of being a 360 Recruiter.

Perhaps your sector is not as sexy as it once was and you're interested in a change or maybe you're an internal recruiter looking to accelerate your earning's potential (not with Maybe you're an old hand looking to step out of management or find somewhere a little more professional or maybe you're a recruitment mum (or dad) coming back from mat/pat leave or returning to work as the kids are growing up.

We would also consider clinicians or care professionals who may have also had a sales career in a former life. That's happened and we've found that works really well too.

We'd love to hear from you, your application will be welcomed and we will share more info as soon as we hear from you.
