Trainee Recruitment Consultant

£21,000 – £26,000 up to 40k (OTE)

Location: United Kingdom (London, City of) Type: Permanent

Trainee Recruitment Consultant


We’re a rapidly growing recruitment agency with our HQ in London and further bases in Belfast, Paris and Sydney and we’re on the lookout for more talented individuals to help us expand our London base further.


We’ve built an established and stable client base over the last 18 years and in the last few years, have expanded our presence globally. We’re looking for smart individuals who we can teach all about our markets (from Digital to Investment Banking), who can build relationships with our candidates and clients, and who are motivated in order to reap the rewards we offer.


What will your role entail?


After initially learning about those industries, our consultants strategise their approach, headhunting senior level professionals and building strong relationships with both candidates and clients. Although no two days are the same, you can mostly expect to be sourcing exceptional talent for our clients, guiding and preparing them throughout their interview processes and eventually, building up your own client base.


So what do we offer?


On top of a market leading commission structure, we offer something quite unusual for the industry. Instead of impossible sales targets and aggressive atmospheres, we offer autonomy in a collaborative environment with the ability to build and manage your own business. We aren’t focused on short term targets and KPIs – we’re all about learning and development and training our employees to become consultants with a great deal of knowledge in their field.


Alongside a competitive basic salary, we offer one of the best commission structures in the City with the ability to earn six-figure salaries within 5 years. Of course this doesn’t come without hard work and persistence so to keep you motivated in the short term, we run regular competitions with cash prizes, days out and holidays. We’re a sociable office with a relaxed dress code, beer and wine fridge on a Friday, quarterly company nights out and tonnes of team building days (most recently Crystal Maze, Shuffle Club and Flight Club).


Your progression is incredibly important to us. With clear career paths and regular learning and development catch ups, our consultants’ first promotions usually come within 6-12 months. Our consultants are the people who open up new offices for us (Belfast in 2014 and Sydney in 2016) so the opportunities for you to grow with the business really are endless.


Who are we looking for?


Our consultants come from a variety of backgrounds but in order for you to best succeed in this position, we are looking for:

  • Excellent communication skills and an ability to liaise with professionals of all levels
  • Self motivated and driven individuals
  • Recruitment can be tough and often luck won’t be on your side, you’ll need resilience!
  • Negotiation and persuasion skills; an ability to turn negative conversations into something positive


To apply, please send across your CV to our internal recruiter, Adam Mohammad: or call 020 7780 6700 for more information.
