Job Description

Gillespie People Solutions are excited to partner again with an impressive and exclusive Executive Search business to appoint a Senior Recruitment Consultant with a background in Education or Public Sector recruitment.

As a Senior Recruitment Consultant, you will be responsible for the entire recruitment process, from the initial job brief to the successful onboarding of the candidate. You will use your expertise to source and engage the best candidates for our clients, either through executive search headhunting, researching clients and candidates, or using your own established networks.

Individually, the right person will have excellent communication and interpersonal skills, the ability to think strategically and identify potential opportunities, an entrepreneurial spirit, the ability to work independently, and a creative approach to problem solving.
In return for your skills, you will be offered a platform to flourish in a professional environment and the chance to build your career. The role attracts a salary of between £35k - £50k, plus an excellent bonus scheme, good benefits and the opportunity to be part of a dynamic and innovative team.

The business have great connections and established framework wins already secured which you will be responsible for delivering against, as well as being aware of upcoming tenders and contributing to pitches.
