Job Description

Position: Graduate Recruitment Consultant

Location: Glasgow

Salary: £20,000 - £22,000


A career in recruitment can be very challenging and no two days are the same, but with a bit of hard work and ambition, it can be an extremely rewarding one. Our client offers a friendly, mature working environment where you can really grow personally and professionally with the support of renowned recruitment professionals.

We are looking to hear from recent Graduate’s seeking a new career that offers fantastic career progression and the opportunity to learn from the best in the recruitment industry. If you have first-class communication skills, enjoy building relationships with new people and you would like to work in a fast-paced, highly rewarding environment, get in touch with us today and we can talk to you about kick-starting a career in recruitment!

Our client is a leading, independent recruitment firm that is a specialist within the Construction and Engineering industry within Scotland and the US. The American market has gone through a significant amount of growth and success, and it is now time for the time to expand by adding an entry level recruiter to help grow this market further. Similarly, the UK market has never been so busy, so there is also an opportunity within their specialist Engineering team.

In this role you will initially be in a candidate facing position, networking with candidates based in America or the UK who meet the requirements for your client’s vacancies, getting to know them, their skillsets and motivations and working alongside an experienced, specialist Recruitment Director to place them in suitable roles.

As you get to know your market, you will progress into a more client focused role, where you will be responsible for meeting with current clients to nurture the relationship and bring on more jobs as well as making business development calls to new clients to introduce yourself and the business, arrange face to face meetings and go out to them to sell your services and bring on new business.

The type of individual that would thrive in this type of environment will have the below attributes:

  • Recent Graduate or Graduate Calibre
  • Previous experience working in a customer facing role either over the phone or face to face
  • Ability to build rapport with customers.
  • Account management skillset
  • Loves research and being resourceful
  • Has a thirst for knowledge and willingness to learn
  • Hungry and passionate to progress career and work your way up the ladder
  • Well-educated, target-driven and hardworking

This is an amazing opportunity for someone who has a real interest in developing a career in recruitment.
