Job description.

graduate recruitment consultant

canterbury office + flexible working £23,000 + uncapped commission 

Are you a Kent-based graduate looking for that first step on your career ladder? Do you want to work in an environment that rewards you on your own results and input rather than time served? Do you want to have your own earns and success directly under your own control? Do you want to work in a trust-based adult environment where you can choose where and when you work but you are supported to learn and develop to your maximum potential?

If yes to all of the above then we want to speak to you about becoming a recruitment consultant.

The rest of the week, we offer flexible work so you can choose to work at our Canterbury office or elsewhere.

We know how to give anyone the key skills and tools to become a good recruiter. In fact, 80% of the current team started as graduates/ trainees and a number of them are now the best in the industry at what they do.

What we look for is the ambition and drive to work hard and take responsibility for your own success. As such. we offer all graduates a basic salary of £23,000 plus uncapped commission. 


  • Researching companies and projects in the construction and property industry. The majority of this will be done on the telephone and it is expected that you will make between 50 – 70 phone calls a day.
  • Cross referencing the research and candidate names on linkedin or other social media
  • Managing the input and flow of data and project information found on the research assignments.
  • Assisting the senior consultants on large complex assignments for senior directors. This maybe through name gathering, data input or candidate head hunting.

  • Work from anywhere policy (we have offices in Stratford and Canterbury)
  • Performance coaching with ex Great British Olympic athlete
  • Training and development to help you achieve your goals.
