Fast-forward to 2015 and we have grown our business to become the world's largest Recruitment provider. We are now the only Recruitment employer to be awarded as one of 'The Times Top 50 Employers of Women 2014 and 2015'. We are a team of 2700 across 45 offices in 15 countries; we have great open plan offices in some of the most incredible locations such as Times Square, overlooking Sydney Harbour and just off Europe's busiest shopping street, Oxford Street London.

No one gets into Recruitment to give good news. There are many rejections faced in your early days and at times, it will feel like there is little return on the work you do. The effort you put in does come off but often a few months down the line. Fun - Your job in Recruitment is going be the busiest job you will ever have worked. Recruitment needs really focussed people who put their clients and candidates first and there are long hours, but it's about the ability to lighten the mood when things get tough and picking your team up as they'll do for you. What skills are needed for the job? To be successful in your job as a Trainee Recruitment Consultant, you will need to have worked in an environment where you have had to meet sales targets as a minimum. We are open to all kinds of sales but those with telesales experience are going to be advantageous. It does not matter if you don't have a degree, providing that you have a proven experience in that environment. "I've been with SThree for 10 years.
