Job Description

Rarely do opportunities this good come on the market.  This position will be filled quickly, so get in touch if you feel it’s a good fit for you.

This client is a highly reputable, successful specialist recruitment agency which has been established for more than 20 years.  They have remarkable staff retention levels, offer a friendly working environment and provide the opportunity to work in the exciting, fast-paced graduate recruitment market.

This company is one of the largest pharmaceutical-focused recruitment agencies in the UK and works with some of the world’s biggest pharma corporations.  With increasing client demand, they have an opening for a Recruitment Consultant to join its team in Edinburgh to focus on graduate Pharma Sales recruitment across the country.

No two days in this role will be the same, with travel across UK client locations between Edinburgh and London (a full, UK driving licence is a must), visiting your client contacts and conducting candidate interviews.  You will also be attending various careers fairs at universities where you will be presenting pharma sales opportunities to new and future graduates, so a confident presentation style will certainly help.

The majority of your client roles will be contract positions with large companies, with a lot of current vacancies sitting waiting to be filled.  Therefore, our client needs someone who can and wants to focus on delivery first, rather than developing business.

This is a fantastic opportunity for an agency or an in-house recruiter with perhaps 2-3 years’ experience who either currently does or wants to focus on graduate recruitment. The UK graduate recruitment market is booming, and this opening is very rare in the Scottish agency recruitment industry!

We are looking to speak with recruiters who are graduates themselves, who can empathise and assist target candidates, as many of them search for their first post-university job and, identify the personalities that would suit a sales role.  You should be a driven, enthusiastic self-starter, who is motivated by a fast-paced, exciting environment and wants the opportunity to take control of your workload and career direction.

There is great scope for progression with a  strong remuneration and rewards package.  For more information or an informal discussion contact, or call her on 0141 319 8719 now.
