Have you stagnated in the first recruitment agency you joined?

Enjoy the role but not the environment?

Here is a fantastic opportunity to work for a UK leading Executive Search firm and build out your own desk.

The Role:

We are seeking consultants with 12 months to 2 years of experience who have maintained work in the same business and desk.

A consultant fitting the above criteria would have the opportunity to build a desk they already have experience working in

Stepping in as a Senior Consultant, you will be tasked in supporting the building of a new desk in the niche markets of either Animal Health or Finished Beverages. With both markets projected to exceed £60 Billion by 2025, coupled with limited competition, the scope for earnings is genuinely ridiculous.

The desk will be completely cold however the first few months will be candidate led, developing a strong network and pool of connections through LinkedIn. To compensate for this period of network development you won’t be targeted for your first 3 months, allowing you to really understand and enhance market knowledge.

The Company:

My client is a UK multi-sector leading Executive Search firm. At 5 years old, the company have excelled in a short period now moving to a larger office location to support their growth. They have become industry experts at building out desks in niche markets.

So why join them?

You would have exposure training from half a million-pound billers who have mastered the art of selling retained roles.

The support structure within this business is unrivalled. You will work in tandem with one of the top performers, having regular catch-ups discussing how best to approach candidates in the specific market as well as how to sell in candidates.

The Benefits:

  • Big average fee sizes (£20k)
  • Commission structure up to 60%
  • Progression pathway with transparent targets
  • Free private healthcare
  • 24 hour Gym access (in office building)
  • Champions League for top billers
  • Bonus for top 3 billers
  • Activities/lunch clubs for everyone if team hits target

The Requirements:

  • 1 - 2 years Recruitment Experience
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Competitive nature
  • Ambitious with clear career goals
  • Highly organised

No candidate will meet every single desired qualification. If your experience looks a little different from what we’ve identified and you think you can bring value to the role, we’d love to learn more about you!

We will aim to secure you several interviews with several companies that you like the look of with the view of securing you several job offers.
