Job Description

Graduate/Trainee Recruitment Consultant – OTE YR 1 £25-30K, YR 2 £35-40K, YR 3 £50-60K, YR 4 £80K+++ - Are you an ambitious graduate looking for fast-track career in a growing company? We are looking for career-driven, motivated and engaging graduates to join SmithCorp as trainee recruitment consultants - a specialist recruitment consultancy listed on The Virgin Fast Track 100. This is a great opportunity to reap the rewards and benefits (think accelerated progression... six-figure salary... all-expenses holidays...) often found in a London-style firm yet based just a few miles from the stunning Cornish coastline in Truro. A bit about us... Established just 12 years ago and now one of the fastest growing privately-owned companies in the UK, SmithCorp is the parent company to 5 leading recruitment consultancies providing nationwide staffing solutions across the Education, Manufacturing and Engineering sectors. We have offices based in centralised locations within Bristol, Truro and London. The last 12 months have been great for us – we’ve started a new recruitment brand, established a brand new base in London and increased our headcount by 25% whilst turning over almost £29million+. We are 100% organic – each and every member of staff including all Managers, Directors and even our COO began their career here as a Trainee. As a company with impressive plans for expansion, this is a fantastic opportunity to progress (often very quickly!) with our clear, performance-based promotion system. What does a Recruitment Consultant do?! As a 360 role, your day-to-day schedule will include (but will not be limited to!): • Winning the business of new clients as well as maintaining existing relationships. • Resourcing new candidates and qualifying leads. • Arranging interviews and managing candidates all the way through the interview process. • Consulting clients and negotiating terms & conditions, salary requirements and benefits packages. • Closing deals! Sounds great but I have no sales experience and/or no idea what “qualifying a lead” means.... That’s fine! We are not looking for anyone with any specific experience. We have a dedicated in-house Performance Academy designed to teach you all the skills required to become a successful recruitment consultant. You will attend intensive courses as well as benefit from an ‘on-the-job’ mentor programme with a top biller allowing you to not only work with the best, but train with the best! Your training will continue throughout your career as you progress through the ranks. What can I expect from this type of career? • Fast Progression! You should expect to be promoted at least twice within your first 6 months (trainee to consultant). We have seen trainees progress to Manager in as little as 18 months in the company (our youngest is only 22!) and Associate Director in just 5 and a half years (aged 28!). If you put the work in, there is no reason why your career cannot follow a similar pathway. • Financial Rewards Realistically you will earn between £25-30k in your first 12 months with us – this will also include a £3k rise to your basic salary as you’re promoted from a trainee to a consultant. Within 18 months here, you should be on target to earn £40k+ and within four years, you will be earning in excess of £80k+. Many top consultants in the company earn a six figure salary. The commission is uncapped and there is no limit on your earnings and we have a number of graduates who have earned over £45K in their first year at SmithCorp – what you put in here is what you will get out! • Incentives, Rewards and Perks We run three all-inclusive 5* holidays a year – Las Vegas, Portugal and a ski trip as well as Monthly Lunch Clubs for top billers.. New trainees are often on our trips. It’s very simple - hit your target and you will be on the plane! In addition, you will receive a gym membership, company pension and healthcare plan. We reward longevity with Rolex targets. • Fantastic Company CultureWe have a unique culture here – lively, vibrant offices with a fun, sociable atmosphere. Our offices feature wireless headsets, sophisticated technology, flat screen TV’s, music and even a putting green! Our offices are centralised with lots of top local bars and restaurants within walking distance – ideal for those who like to work hard and play harder! Our Ideal Graduate… We are not looking for any specific degree, experience or qualifications however you must be hardworking, dynamic and confident with a real genuine desire to progress and make money in a fast-paced sales environment. At SmithCorp we recruit on your attributes and personality – it does not matter what you have done, we are keen to invest in where you are going. We are looking for graduates who: • Have obtained at least a 2:2 degree. • Have flair, charisma and drive, • Are confident, presentable, dynamic and sociable • Are ambitious. • If you are motivated to go "the extra mile" to earn uncapped commission and progress quickly, you are the sort of person we are looking for! We want to see that you are competitive and hard-working – perhaps you have excelled in a sport or extra-curricular activity or worked part time alongside your degree… If you can show us that you can dedicate yourself to something and not give up until you succeed then we’d be keen to hear from you! Interested? Apply today! I look forward to hearing from you
