About Us

At The Grad Society we are currently seeking a Trainee Consultant to join our growing business. With a current team of 3 we are looking to expand to 10 by the end of this year and the trainee’s joining us at this exciting time will have a real opportunity to be managing their own team by the turn of the year!

We are looking for ambitious individuals with a real drive to succeed and make something of their careers. If you’re looking for a big company with a definitive structure in place, then we probably won’t be for you. However, if you’re looking to make a big impact in a small company and secure yourself a long-term career into management, then this could be the perfect opportunity for you to do so.

For the first 3-6 months, you will be working in a Resource capacity focused on the candidate management side of the business. This will include:

  • Sourcing appropriate candidates on a variety of job boards
  • Creating adverts to attract relevant candidates
  • Carrying out initial phone screenings to assess their suitability to the positions we have
  • Carrying out 1st stage interviews either face to face or via Skype
  • Ensuring we have all the key details about each candidate before sending them out

Once you have proven yourself and your ability to secure a good calibre of candidates you will move into a 360 role where you will begin to handle the client side of the business as well. This will include:

  • Being responsible for the whole interview process with potential candidates and deciding which clients they are most appropriate for
  • Being responsible for new business development, including generating leads and cold calling
  • Agreeing terms with prospective clients
  • Attending client meetings to gather a full description of the candidates they want to take on

What we’re looking for in a Trainee Recruitment Consultant

  • Graduates or school leavers who are wanting to work in a fast-paced environment
  • Ambitious individuals who are excited by the growth of the business
  • Money motivated individuals who enjoy working to targets
  • Individuals who are willing to work hard to reap the rewards

Benefits for the Trainee Recruitment Consultant

  • Starting salary of £20,000 per annum
  • Excellent commission structure from the off
  • Excellent opportunities to progress your career quickly based on your own hard work
  • Full training scheme to ensure you’re reaching your potential as soon as possible
  • A small, friendly team with regular lunches/evenings out
