Job Description

What is the role? It’s a graduate (although a degree is not essential) / entry level Recruitment Consultant position. So…..what does that involve? • Sourcing candidates through Linkedin, Advertising, Database searches and networking • Selling and matching opportunities to candidates and candidates to our client jobs. • Managing the interview and offer process What’s the opportunity for progression if I’m good? • After completing your resourcing training you will have the opportunity to become a fully-fledged recruiter in one of our three high performing divisions either: Sales Appointments in the UK, Creative appointments in the UK & Europe or Engineering appointments in UAE and Asia. • As a full recruiter, you will also business develop to win new projects as well as source the candidates and manage the process. You will be the boss of your own niche market. And if you desire and are capable you can grow a team and go into management. What are you looking for in me? • We are a growing business and we are looking for people with exceptional drive, determination and ambition as well as a great personality to help create and share in our success. • You’ve got to be clever that’s a given, but not in terms of academically, more emotionally smart and able to learn quickly. • It’s such a people based business so you have to be comfortable talking and corresponding with people you never dealt with before. • You have got to be able to grasp concepts quickly, be decisive and influence people to make things happen with urgency. • Degrees are not important, (but that is calibre of people we want, where you would be capable of doing one, whether or not you chose to), neither is age, but we want people who feel they will belong here and care about doing a great job. • You need to be able to demonstrate commitment and dedication and an ability to start and see something through. Honestly we are often put off by candidates that have moved from job to job, or consistently start and don’t finish things. We are a close knit team so we only want great people to add to our culture. What does is pay, how much can I realistically expect to earn? • Starting basic pay is £18,000-£22,500 + commission and bonuses. • First year minimum of £25,000+ • The average earnings in 2nd year across the business is £54,000 per annum. • Our top earners after 3 years earn in excess of £100k each year What’s the training like? • We are an investor in people gold business so our training is first class. • Initially there is a mixture of class room based training and hands on practical stuff also. You then continue your training and development working with one of our Associate Directors or Principal recruiters, so you are learning from the best and experiencing first-hand what being a top recruiter is all about. We have loads more info on how this can work for you. Where is it based and do I travel at all? • We are based in the centre of Wilmslow in Cheshire, 3minute walk from the train station. • We are 17mins from Manchester City centre on the train, although many of our staff drive to work. • We do travel to meet with clients to present, account reviews, discuss key projects, and assist with interviews, as well as entertaining and having fun with customers. But the majority of time is spent in the office. • Our teams attend the big conventions, go on international client visits to places such as Dubai, Qatar, Singapore, Western Europe as well as all over the UK. What’s the culture of the business like and the office environment? • The average age of our employees is between 25 and 30, we have graduates straight out of university, or those people who have had some work experience. Obviously we have experienced and senior members of staff who are pushing up the average age!! Some of our staff have been with us since we started out. • It’s a casual smart dress culture and we work in really cool offices with staff break out areas, a stocked bar, pool tables, PlayStations and a great social area for they teams to enjoy on breaks and at lunch. • In terms of the main office, it’s a noisy and busy environment, usually with incentives or competitions running to keep a great and productive energy in the place. We do loads of great social events, we have a quarterly incentive running now for an international weekend away (in the past we have done Vegas, Barcelona, Palma etc and hired Villas in Ibiza). We support charities each and fund raise with various event. • Overall it’s a fantastic place to work, the staff are the key to our success, which is why we have been voted a Best Company to work for previously. • If you want to see behind the scenes, check our facebook page. When do you want people to start? • Now, next month but no later than July this year. • The truth is we are always looking for outstanding people and are happy to wait for the right person, but equally we can also move really quickly And finally what’s the process for applying? • Send us your CV or a detailed covering letter (if you don’t feel your CV does you justice then send a letter explaining why you are interested. In this day and age its important to try and stand out from the competition for the right reasons and those people that make more of an effort in application, usually get noticed sooner. • If you can show us some of the experience and qualities we are looking for we will call you to explain more about what we are doing and where we are going. • If that conversations goes well, we invite you in to see our set up and have a more detailed chat face to face. • The final stage is meeting more of the team and hearing from the real people about what makes Genesis so great. Next steps…. • If it sounds good and you are serious (don’t apply unless you are genuinely interested) then get in contact. We look forward to hearing from you
