Graduate Trainee Recruitment Consultant - Market Research

£20-24k + commission. As a trainee you'll earn 10% commission on each deal.

Fun, yet professional. Small, but mighty and with BIG ambitions. Does this sound like the type of company you’re after. Read on.

Join this team of 5 Market Research and Insights recruiters in building their empire. As a new member of a small team you’ll be joining an autonomous and transparent working environment where you’ll have to work hard but the rewards are their for the taking.

Based slap bang in the heart of central London in a co-workingspace with a rooftop terrace, just by Covent Garden, they’re looking for a resourcer to join the team.

You’ll be working with a range of clients from household names like John Lewis, Ebay and Mcdonalds to award winning insight and innovation consultancies to help them find candidates at all levels from Junior Executive to Managing Directors.

What you'll be doing as a Graduate Recruitment Consultant.

Here’s some of the things you’ll be doing to help you make placements

  • Become credible and knowledgeable by attending industry events, always asking great questions and being a sponge with your clients, candidates and colleagues
  • Use social media to stand out. Think: less tagging in memes, more setting scenes.
  • Advertising. Great with words? You’ll need to be able to market both candidates and clients to the other. Which means getting your creative head on.
  • Headhunting. Finding a needle in a haystack is something you’ll be handsomely rewarded for. Like a really well paid version of 'Where’s Wally’ (just don’t call your candidate Wally’s).
  • Database development. Have you got Wally’s number or LinkedIn URL? Saving it somewhere is a key skill and will really help you.
  • Interviewing. You’ll come to love interviewing, and when you’re on the other side of the desk, it’s less daunting and actually fun.
  • Managing projects or applications on behalf of your clients. The strategic stuff.
  • Briefing candidates and clients, leaving no stone unturned from a job spec or CV, or you’ll be between a rock and a hard place later
  • Delivering bad news. We all have to do it. Recruitment will make you better at it. The good news is, they’ll thank you for it, and it’s never your decision.
  • Negotiating. Have you ever bartered for something? Ever tried to get a price down? You’ll do this for salaries and expectations. And become awesome at it.
  • Advising. You’ll advise people a lot. That’s where the word 'consultant’ comes from in the job description.

Being a good graduate recruitment consultant is all about attitude.

If you've got a 2.2 or above and the following attributes we want to speak with you:

  • Resilience
  • Competitiveness
  • Money motivation
  • Exceptional communication & negotiation skills
