One of the world's fastest growing recruitment firms in the Financial and IT sector are looking to take on 2 star graduates who are keen to take up an amazing challenge in Singapore.

If you want to begin your global career by coming into contact with the most powerful makers and shakers in these two sectors then this is the firm to work for. Whether it be CEOs, Directors, Managers or team leaders, this firm interact with the very top personnel across not just the Asian market but the entire globe, with extensive contacts across the Middle East, Europe and America.

Set on a vibrant floor, the company is split into smaller teams, each specialising in their own specific niche market. This allows each team to build a rapport with each individual client based on extensive knowledge of the sector. As a graduate you will of course not be expected to begin your career with this knowledge, but rather have it passed down to you from both your team leader and the other consultants around you on your team. The training is done on site, directly by the directors, meaning that they are able to directly hand down their collective 100 years of experience straight to you.

It is this flow of knowledge that sets this company apart from their competitors and this all stems from the training the graduates receive. The first three months consist of continuous training across all aspects of the recruitment cycle. From contacting clients, to how to source the best candidates, how to lead an interview through to how to close a deal, these are skills that will set you up for your entire career. Rather than this being taught in a class room, this is all teaching that comes on the job, a senior manager guiding you through your first calls, contracts and deals but for real rather than just doing role play scenarios. This means that all graduates have the best platform off which to be hugely successful and receive some of the rewards on offer.

Consultants can receive commission from day one, whether it be for bringing in new clients or for placing candidates. With a competitive basic, this commission structure inflates your wage up double or triple your salary. By simply hitting your first year targets you would be taking home an equivalent of more than £40,000. However this is not the norm… This is a firm that focus solely on being the best rather than just hitting targets. Within this company the directors expect all their consultants to be earning over £100,000 by their third year - a reflection of your increased knowledge, database, confidence and crucially your growing network of candidates and clients.

With a tax rate as low as 13% paid a year in arrears, this allows consultants to take home ALL OF THEIR FIRST YEAR EARNINGS, whilst the company offers a relocation bonus and flights out to Singapore as well as helping set you up in your own accommodation and helping you settle in.

So this is not just another generic job, this is the chance for a top graduate to begin a career that can see them not only earn well, but also progress quickly - based not on your age or experience but rather simply on your ability.

If you are a 2017 graduate from a top 50 University, with a 2.1, an exceptional work ethic, huge drive and a history of being successful both at university and in the workplace then this is the position for you.
