Job Description

Are you an experienced Recruitment Consultant with an interest in infiltrating the enormous opportunities open to you in the Fashion and Retail Buying and Merchandising verticals?

The Company

Our client is a well-established and well reputed Retail, Fashion and Luxury Brand Recruiter, based in Central London.

As part of a close-knit team with highly supportive management, you will have an incredibly ‘warm’ platform from which to establish your own presence. With smart offices, a ‘family feel’ culture and door opening brand name, you should be able to start billing and establishing yourself very quickly.

Buying and Merchandising is an already busy, growing, warm division in the business and has an opening for an experienced Consultant to take on existing clients and grow the desk.

You will learn the technical side as you go but will be expected to understand the recruitment part from day one and to be a true ‘people person’.

The Recruitment Consultant role

Entering into the business at Recruitment Consultant level, this is a full-360 degree Recruitment role, working on permanent Buying and Merchandising roles within the retail and fashion industry.

You will be involved in all aspects of the recruitment sales cycle from mapping your market, developing new business, managing existing business, achieving financial and productivity KPIs, attracting and managing quality candidates and growing your overall market presence.

The role will involve handling a high volume workload and will need to manage your time well.

You will be responsible for visiting new and existing clients on a regular basis, responsible for managing both clients and candidates. Your clients will include some seriously desirable brands as well as some very hip start-up businesses.

The Person

We are looking for an experienced Recruitment Consultant who is skilled in Business Development and understands the full recruitment processes.

Previous industry experience would be a particular advantage, (experience as a Buyer is especially interesting), but we’re really looking for here is personality and cultural fit. If you are looking to work in a more exciting and interesting area of recruitment, this could be the role for you.

In this highly competitive market, you will need to demonstrate a good understanding of the retail and fashion industry as well as being a skilled listener and solutions provider.

You don’t need to own a pair of Manolo Blahniks or the very latest Chanel handbag but if you’re fascinated by fashion and are truly driven to succeed then this is an amazing opportunity to learn the business whilst working with some of the best in the industry.

As this industry is particularly fashion focused, will be expected to conduct and present yourself as an ambassador for your clients in every candidate interaction you have, so personal presentation and professional conduct are of paramount importance.

What is on offer?

  • £25-35k basic plus commission
  • Package
  • Training and development
  • Clear career progression
  • Family-feel, nurturing culture
  • Established desk to expand and develop
