Prospectus is looking for an ambitious, values driven individual to join our Education team as a Trainee Recruitment Consultant. Prospectus is a well-established recruitment company with a significant profile in the beyond profit sector. We work with a huge range of organisations including charities, social enterprises, education establishments and arts bodies. Our trainee consultant programme is an opportunity for an engaged and motivated individual with minimal experience but lots of potential to build a career with a leading recruitment business. You will spend six months shadowing and working alongside a Senior Consultant developing your knowledge and understanding of the business, the recruitment industry, and the beyond profit sector. You will learn all aspects of the role of a 360 Recruitment Consultant and develop your understanding of your contribution to the beyond profit sector. Areas covered will include: writing job adverts and responding to applications; sourcing and interviewing candidates; winning new business and managing client relationships; and representing Prospectus at events and client meetings. The ideal candidate is proactive and able to use their own initiative whilst very much working as part of a team. You will have excellent interpersonal and communication skills tied with the ability to multi-task, prioritise and manage a varied workload. Preferably with some sales experience, you are really interested in learning and love to be surrounded by interesting people. The role is offered with great benefits including 23 days holiday a year, a profit related bonus scheme, a contributory pension, childcare vouchers, a bike loan, an employee loan scheme, discounted gym membership and payroll giving. Prospectus also gives all staff 6 days off each year to volunteer with any organisation of their choice. Application is by CV only at this stage but if you'd like to have a chat about the role please give our Head of Talent, Emma Bradman, a call on 020 7691 1939.
