Identifying, then assessing and supporting your candidates through the process to successful interview with your clients will be key to your success. So, your recruitment assessment, organisational and relationship skills will really come to the fore.  While you'll be based in Edinburgh, there will be a significant amount of travel involved across Scotland and the north of England to represent the business at recruitment fairs, events and in Universities, and to then meet and assess candidates close to their home patch.
