Job Description

Trainee Consultant - Exceptional Team Culture - Up to £35k Y1 OTE

Do you have a natural flair for sales?

Are you hungry for the opportunity to work in a fast paced environment, with an amazing team and outstanding earning potential?

If so, this could be the role for you!

We are currently looking for an outstanding Trainee Recruitment Consultant who has a genuine drive to succeed and develop a brand new career!

Principal People are currently recruiting for a Trainee Recruitment Consultant to join our business, due to the phenomenal growth of the organisation. This is an amazing opportunity to join our innovative training academy and become part of our incredibly high performing, supportive and welcoming team.

Established almost 30 years ago, our business has grown from strength to strength under the leadership of two passionate, hands on Directors who lead by example and reward hard work and commitment with amazing team incentives. (Most recently our top performers were treated to tailored Armani suits)!

Think team breakfasts, Friday night drinks and lunch delivered to us (just because) this is truly a place where it’s easy to love what you do.

Working as a Recruitment Consultant is an extremely varied, rewarding and challenging role. You will be interviewing regularly and conducting a high volume of sales activity, as well as having the flexibility to be out of the office attending client meetings throughout the week. There is never a dull day and you are certainly not just stuck behind a desk when working in recruitment! It’s all about being extremely organised and motivated to win new business, secure the right candidates for your jobs and continue to build your desk and excel!

In addition to our dedicated training academy, we offer a lucrative commission structure with no initial threshold to get you off to the very best start.

The successful Trainee Recruitment Consultant will be responsible for:

  • Proactively marketing the business and recruitment services across a range of methods including cold calling, networking events and client meetings
  • Actively working on job vacancies, identifying and securing candidates whilst working to strict deadlines
  • Registering and qualifying prospective candidates
  • Working to daily, weekly and monthly targets and KPI’s in a high volume environment
  • Proactively building relationships with your clients and candidates on a daily basis, providing excellent customer service to clients and candidates at all times
  • Ensuring that all administration is kept completely up to date

For your hard work and dedication, you will be rewarded with:

  • No threshold on your commission for the first 3 months with the business - earn 10% of absolutely everything you bill; rising up to 27.5% commission as you progress within the role
  • Realistic commission in your first year from month 3 onwards, based on our star performers: £150 - £300 per month from 3 - 6 months within the role, rising to £750 - £950 per month over the course of the following 6 months
  • Amazing team incentives; it’s all about working hard and playing harder!
  • Industry leading training and development, tailored to your level of experience to ensure the very best start with ongoing development as you progress within the role
  • Outstanding benefits when you progress to Consultant level, including private health cover, pension and contribution to a 5 star gym membership
  • Beautiful, brand new offices in Farnborough with complimentary parking on site

If this sounds like the right role for you, please apply online or contact Tara Waterman today!!
