Ivory Jacobs are on the hunt on behalf of our clients for Trainee Consultants. We are looking in Portsmouth, Southampton, Winchester, Bournemouth & Chichester.
If you are a very hard working individual who is very ambitious and money motivated then you could have a very successful career in Recruitment. The usual backgrounds that are a good transition are candidates with B2B/B2B sales (Telesales, Estate Agency, Sales Exec, Car Sales, Door to Door Sales etc.) Although this is not essential.
You really need to consider if recruitment is going to be the right career path for you. It is a very difficult job, you have to learn how to do B2B Sales on the phone and with that there is a high level of rejection involved. It is very demanding and requires someone who has extreme enthusiasm and determination. If you are up for the challenge, then recruitment is a fantastic life-long career which will allow you to quickly progress and the earning potential is phenomenal.
What does the role as a Trainee Recruitment Consultant involve?
As a Trainee Recruitment Consultant you will be what is known in the industry as a 360 recruiter, meaning you will not only source candidates through databases, advertisements, social network and headhunting but also develop new business through cold calling businesses to build your own client base. Recruitment is a sales role and so you will have the pressure of targets and KPI’s (Key Performance Indicators) to hit. You have to prepare yourself for the amount of rejection involved but know that when you do well in recruitment you can earn a six figure salary.
The ideal candidate:
Someone who has a passion for recruitment – “but how can I be passionate about something I’ve never done before?” I hear you ask! We know you haven’t done this before, but we are looking for someone who will recognise the potential from a career in this industry. If you like the sound of it- do your research! You can’t become passionate about something that you haven’t even googled!
* A degree in essential in this role (preferably at least a 2:1 in an academic subject)
* Strong telephone and communication skills
* Driven, determined and money motivated
* Intelligent and Articulate
* Well presented – (This is a client facing, professional role - you need to be clean cut and suited and booted!)
* A natural sales ability
* Sales experience (not essential)
What's in it for you?
The best thing about recruitment – the money. The earning potential is huge and you will get out exactly what you put in.
* A highly competitive starting salary in the region of £16,000 - £22,000
* Industry leading commission structure (up to 50%)
* Comprehensive training programme teaching basic sales through to the full recruitment lifecycle including candidate sourcing and client generation
* Trained by highly successful Senior Recruitment Consultants / Recruitment Managers – proven with current crop of Trainee Recruitment Consultants
* Incentives such as 5* lunches, trips across the UK & Internationally
* Long term career progression
