Trainee Recruitment Consultant - Birmingham
|Posted: 27 days ago
|Contact Name: CV-Library
Due to our success in the last year, here at Connex Education we have our sights set on national growth. This means that we're expanding our team of staff and a vacancy is currently available for a Trainee Recruitment Consultant in Birmingham.
The role is based at our city centre office (right by Five Ways on Hagley Road) and it offers a fantastic opportunity for an ambitious and outgoing individual to embark on a financially rewarding sales career, in a company that values its staff. Sound like something you might be interested in?
As a Trainee Recruitment Consultant with Connex, you will be responsible for building relationships with schools in the local area and, using our ever-growing base of candidates, will strive to meet their supply needs. This isn't just a regular desk job however; you'll also be able to leave the office behind regularly to visit schools in your area and generate new business. As you'll be travelling locally, you must be able to drive and have access to a car.
We are looking for someone with a confident, lively personality, strong interpersonal skills, and a proven track record of working towards (and beating) set targets. You do not need any previous experience in order to apply; however, a basic understanding of the education recruitment industry would be ideal. If you are passionate about a career in sales and willing to learn on the job, we want to hear from you!
Why work for Connex? Because we're not a typical agency! We have a team of support staff to take care of distracting administrative duties, our working hours are flexible, we have a casual dress code, weekly in-house competitions allow you to win everything from pizza and beers to extra annual leave, and we hold bi-annual parties to get together and celebrate our successes. On top of this, our office is a supportive, friendly, and fun environment that we think makes work much more enjoyable.
Recruitment Consultants who succeed in their job are rewarded both financially and with opportunities for career progression, including access to a manager development programme and potential for achievable promotions. As a Trainee Recruitment Consultant, you will also receive:
- A starting salary of £18,000, increasing after training
- An excellent uncapped and realistic commission structure
- 48 days of annual leave (!) including 4 day work weeks during the school holidays
- The chance to buy back 5 extra days of holiday through a salary sacrifice
- Great working hours - 7.30-4, 8.30-5, 9.30-6, dependent on the needs of the business
- Comprehensive training and company sponsored qualifications
- Reimbursement for all petrol costs
- Death in service benefits (although hopefully we're never in a position to have to pay this!)
Connex Education is a true people business and we strive to provide the best possible service for our clients and candidates. If you are a strong character and are ready to begin your career in sales, this is a perfect opportunity to join a company that will help you get off to a flying start! Apply today and one of our friendly consultants will be in touch soon.
Connex Education is a high quality, service-led education supply agency which puts its people - not its profit - first. We concentrate on finding the right people, with the right skills and attitudes, for our schools. We hand-pick our staff, put them on our own payroll, and give them the same dedicated attention and support that we give our schools. Looking after people is central to our business: it's what has earned us our excellent reputation
