Trainee Recruitment Consultant - Engineering and Manufacturing

Location: City Centre and flexible working

Salary: £18 to £22k DOE and great bonus scheme

Ref: 185a

Type: Permanent

Would you like to be a Trainee Recruitment Consultant in one of Sheffield’s most exciting national high street brands? And receive some of the best training in the industry with the company’s own training academy? And would you like to work in one of the busiest specialist sector’s? Delivering recruitment solutions for a range of clients involved in Design, Manufacturing and Service Maintenance across a range of dynamic industries including Defence, Aerospace, Pharma, Aviation and Oil & Gas?

My client specialises in placing both blue collar and white collar candidates into both temporary and permanent positions within 'Manufacturing' and 'Engineering' companies across the UK. They are currently looking to recruit a Trainee Recruitment Consultant within their busy Sheffield based Engineering Team. Working as a Trainee Engineering Recruitment Consultant will require excellent sales and consultancy skills along with the ability to deal with engineering and manufacturing jobseekers and employers.

As a Trainee Recruitment Consultant you’ll be responsible for understanding and matching between companies’ recruitment requirements and applicants’ job aspirations, and be able to manage their expectations. You’ll be using market-leading technology to find and manage those staff and will have access to the most comprehensive training, development and support network in the industry.

Eventually, once trained up, you will run your desk in effect as your own business, so will need to be able to manage both the highs and lows that this will bring. You will need to be pro-active, not afraid of a challenge and enjoy a thriving sales environment! Being able to manage rapidly changing requirements is a must, as is being able to adapt your communication to suit both clients and candidates.

The current team of Recruitment Consultants come from a range of backgrounds and having recruitment experience is not the most important attribute. To be successful within this business they look for someone with the following attributes:

• An ability to sell
• An ability to think on your feet and think creatively
• To be consultative in your sales approach
• To be able to negotiate and influence decision makers
• To be good at building long standing relationships within a business environment
• The right mind-set - honest, flexible and reliable, with the determination to succeed

It would be highly advantageous to have existing experience within the Recruitment Industry or some kind of Sales experience, although we may consider other applicants based on drive and tenacity who have the desire to succeed in a fast paced Recruitment/Sales environment.
