Trainee Recruitment Consultant

Cornwall, UK
Apply Now


Job Type: Permanent, FullTime

Salary: £20000 - £40000/annum

Good things come to those who work really, really hard…” and by 'good things,' I mean a lucrative uncapped commission structure, a clear pathway to progression, a sociable yet professional team plus other perks - an all expenses trip to Las Vegas, anyone? This is a real chance to have a 'city' career just miles from the beach, in beautiful Cornwall.

Established in 2004, SmithCorp has gone from strength to strength. With offices in Bristol (Gloucester Road), London (Paddington), Cornwall (Truro) and Jersey, a £30m annual turnover, numerous awards under our belt, an unrivalled, vibrant and sociable company culture, plans to grow further (and have fun whilst doing so!), we are now looking for individuals, who are just as ambitious as we are, to embark on a career in recruitment.

The rate at which we have grown and progressed is a testament to our very own Bushido Training Academy. As an organic company, the vast majority of our Consultants, Managers and Directors started their careers here as trainees and with our support, guidance and their own hard work, are now some of the UK's best recruiters.

What does a Recruitment Consultant do?

You will be coached by your mentor and trained to effectively manage the full 360 recruitment life-cycle. This involves:


Building a client portfolio of businesses within your specialist market and area.


Managing a database of top calibre professional candidates.


Identifying opportunities within the market place.


Generating leads and developing relationships.


Working with all parties to deliver a professional, tailored experience for clients and candidates alike.

What would a career at SmithCorp look like?

It's very much a meritocracy here - the rate you earn and progress is entirely down to you. Not afraid of hard work? Good! You will certainly be rewarded for it!

1st Year - you will receive 121 mentoring from one of SmithCorp's top performers. With the ability to earn commission on top of your salary from Day One, most consultants will look to earn around £25-40k and receive 2 promotions in their first year.

2nd Year - solid performers will look to be promoted to at least Senior Consultant by this point, seeing a hefty salary increase. Realistically, you will expect to earn between £35-50k.

3rd Year - consistent billers who have shown an interest in managing will be taking very clear steps in this direction by this point, leading and growing a small team of around 1-3 consultants. Some individuals will choose to focus on billing (making money with zero responsibilities!) - either way, you will expect to earn £40-60k with top performers exceeding this.

4th Year - you should now be on track to earn between £60-80k, progressing towards 6 figure earnings, leading a team of 4-8 people and enrolled within our 2 year Leadership and Development Programme. Some exceptional consultants will be looking to achieve Associate Director level in a few short years.

SmithCorp's Perks

Yes, there's more! In addition to uncapped commission and progression, we offer:


2 x annual, VIP, all-expenses paid company trips - Las Vegas and Skiing. Hit your targets and you're on the plane - there is absolutely no catch.


Monthly Lunch Clubs - fancy a Friday afternoon out of the office with your friends, a posh dinner and drinks? Again, no catch. Hit your target and you've got a seat at the table.


Rolex Target


Gym Membership


Free breakfasts and coffee


Cycle to Work scheme


Private Pension and Healthcare plans


Free fresh fruit

What we are looking for:

There is no 'ideal' candidate for us - and no particular experience is needed. Recruitment is a sales role and whilst a background in sales could be helpful, it's not necessary. Our consultants have come from the hospitality industry, construction, call centres, competitive sport, education, the military and occasionally, straight from university, to name a few. If you can demonstrate a strong work ethic, excellent communication skills, a desire to be successful and a good sense of humour, we'd like to hear from you.

To apply or for more information about what a career here at SmithCorp could look like for you, please send a CV to Yasmin or call directly on (phone number removed). I look forward to hearing from you
