The Client
Our client is looking to hire a number of young and astute graduates with corporate experience and a passion for the financial sector. They have consistently grown since their birth in 2009, with over 50 staff and 4 teams each working in a niche sector of the banking industry. The new hires are part of a territorial expansion with top billers now looking to set up offices in Hong Kong and New York. This is both a testament to the success of the company but also a good indication of potential avenues and opportunities to come in the near future.

With the top biller for the 2015 fiscal year billing over £325,000 this is both proof of being in a prosperous industry but also of the ruthless work ethic conducted by the rest of the firm. Alongside work and long hours the Director very much encourages a social side of the business. The teams partake in regular weekly drinks with a number of social events throughout the year and quarterly holidays dependent on targets

The Role
As a trainee headhunter in the executive search industry, you will be required to undertake a number of training modules carried out by various managers and execs from the firm. These will combine classroom and practical simulations to prepare you for communicating and working with HNW clients on a regular basis.

This job is very much a client facing role so excellent interpersonal skills are integral to your success in the industry. A perfect professional manner and consistent approach to daily tasks will allow you to reach your potential early on whilst managing both candidate and client relationships.
