The days activity, whether it’s representing a company you’re head hunting on behalf of for an exciting opportunity, or it’s working proactively on behalf of one of your star candidates, will be your main focus.

You’ll qualify and register candidates, work with the admin, resourcing and marketing teams (who’ll do an exceptional job taking care of creating cv’s, advertisements and any documentation). You’ll negotiate offers, manage contracts, advise on resignations and stay in touch through notice periods. You’ll also take vacancies, devise the right approach to recruit on the role, research the market and make approaches to potential candidates. You’ll build relationships, so you really understand your candidates’ aspirations and to help introduce them to the right organisations for their career development. You’ll be making connections, developing your profile and reputation in the market as part of a leading brand.
