Job Description:

We are an energetic, innovative and thriving Warwick-based recruitment agency, who have a requirement for a trainee Recruitment Consultant to look after and manage accounts with our key clients in our Automotive desk.

In this small, yet growing, family company, your role will be extremely varied. Great customer service skills are a must, we can provide you with all the relevant training - what is important to us is a can-do attitude, enthusiasm and positivity! A keen interest in cars/ motorsport is a must!

This is not a sales role - it is focused on recruiting and building/maintaining great relationships with our clients.

These are permanent opportunities and a comprehensive training programme and apprenticeships are available.

What would your day look like?

  • Conversing with clients to understand their needs and addressing any issues - you will be the main point of contact for your accounts
  • Visiting your client and becoming their trusted advisor. We are not 'CV-chuckers' - we genuinely believe in providing the best level of service to our clients
  • Sourcing CVs from databases and job boards
  • Understanding and interpreting these CV's to ensure suitability
  • Interviewing both clients and candidates to understand skills and experience required for vacancies; ensuring candidates have the necessary skills to match and recording this on our database
  • Dealing with client queries in a timely and courteous manner
  • To pro-actively manage the existing client base, ensuring their longer-term recruitment needs can be met
  • Researching and understanding your market place so that you are able to provide genuine and hopefully useful market intelligence to our clients

This is a fantastic opportunity for someone who is incredibly well organised, efficient and is extremely flexible and approachable!

  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Good administrative / organisational skills - to keep databases current and up-to-date, paperwork completed on time etc.
  • Ability to prioritise and manage time effectively
  • Approachable, with good interpersonal skills
  • Flexibility
