Graduate Recruitment Consultant
Recruitment is the fourth largest industry in the UK and it’s a great industry to work in! If you are persuasive, hard working, competitive and passionate about starting a career then becoming a graduate recruitment consultant could be for you.
At SuperGrad, we help kick start the careers of the highest performing graduates by finding their perfect match in the recruitment industry. SuperGrad is the leading supplier of ambitious and financially-motivated graduates into the dynamic and highly lucrative Headhunting Industry in Central London, placing graduates into graduate recruitment consultant positions in the City.
We run the SuperGrad Programme, a programme that supports you throughout the entire process of moving from graduate to successful City Recruitment Consultant. Upon passing our selection process, you will benefit from being introduced to some of the most progressive firms in the city, given face-to-face coaching to help you secure a job offer from them, and industry-leading training that will ensure you excel within the role, as well as a bank of exclusive online resources that will fully support you throughout the process.
So what does a graduate recruitment consultant do?
- Sourcing candidates through online platforms, such as LinkedIn or CV databases
- Building relationships with existing clients and new clients
- Matching candidates to vacancies
- Managing candidates through the interview and hiring process, as well as being a mediator in negotiations once a candidate has been offered.
- Closing the deal and earning your commission!
What you get:
- A starting salary of £20-25k and uncapped OTE. Most graduates will earn at least £45k in commission in their first year, but many will earn far above this.
- As we work with small, niche recruitment companies, career progression is quick, with the option to progress to Senior Consultant or even Team Leader within a matter of years.
- Great benefits for graduate consultants, from city lunches , trips abroad and company holidays
- Other benefits may include flexible working hours if targets are met allowing you to run your own desk.-
What you need:
- Ambition: the most ambitious graduates, who want to progress in their career quickly, will perform the highest in recruitment.
- Hard-working: a history that shows you are hard-working. Whether you worked 25 hours a week during your degree or started work when you were 15, there are many ways you can provide evidence for this.
- Competitive nature: recruitment is extremely competitive. Whether you did a lot of sport, were an elected rep or have experience working in a KPI driven environment, a competitive attitude is vital.
- Money motivated: a drive to earn money will help you do well as graduate consultant.
- Resilience: any sales role means you have to show resilience to be successful.
- Sales experience desirable: whether you did promotion work for a night club at uni, worked as a student ambassador or you have worked towards targets, they will all help you.
