Job description

TDM Recruitment Group is a Kent based executive search consultancy, undergoing an exciting period of growth. We are now looking for our next intake of TDM Academy starters to follow in the success of our Academy predecessors. We are looking for recent graduates keen to forge a successful sales career.

You will be put through a rigorous, tried and tested three-month training programme from trainee to become a fully-fledged consultant with the skills and knowledge needed to succeed as an Executive Recruiter.

We are a leading recruitment firm within construction and residential property. Our impressive, nationwide client base includes FTSE listed businesses, top national housebuilders including 5* rated, alongside smaller, private organisations.

We predominantly recruit across Middle Management to Director level (£50,000 - £200,000 salaries), operating on a ‘search and selection’ basis, whereby we actively headhunt candidates, selling prime career opportunities with our clients. We enjoy long-term, exclusive relationships with our clients and have been involved in growing teams from ground up. Each recruitment drive is molded to fit the needs and requirements of the individual client.

One of our key successes within the business is our team. We are passionate about growing talent from within, and have numerous accomplishment stories including our Associate Director, who, within 3 years, has risen through the ranks from Trainee Recruiter to Associate Director, and one of our Principal Consultants’ who has been promoted three times within 9 months as a reward for success. We encourage employees to build the career they want and provide every opportunity for each consultant to work within a market suited to them, ranging from Sales, to Land and Technical, to Commercial and Construction.

We have consistently grown over the past three years, and having doubled in size in the last 12 months, we only plan to get bigger. With exciting expansion plans this is the perfect time to join an organisation in the throes of success.

So, what is recruitment? Quite simply: we work on behalf of our clients, who perhaps don’t have the time or resources to recruit for their teams directly, to headhunt exclusive, executive candidates to join their business.

To start, the role is heavily telephone orientated, with Junior Consultants getting in touch with candidates on the passive market, settled in their current roles however willing to move for the right opportunity, and pitching candidates to clients who may not be actively looking to recruit, (until they see the perfect candidate!)

Throughout your 12 week training programme, you will be exposed to a variety of tasks including:

Sourcing and researching candidates within the property and construction industry via LinkedIn 
Market mapping via telephone – identifying target companies and potential candidates 
Researching companies and projects within the property industry
Developing your network of business contacts
Managing the flow and input of critical data and project information 
Assisting Senior Consultants with assignments

By the end of the Academy you will be on your way to becoming a 360 recruitment consultant, engaged in the full recruitment life cycle, from identification to placement.

There is the opportunity to make serious money. Starting salary £18,000 rising to £25,000 as a Consultant (first year OTE £30,000).

You will be joining a team who are at the sharp end of the property industry and are renowned for their experience and client engagement. You will be supported in all aspects of career development and have the opportunity to progress at significant pace.

Key requirements: 

Ideally degree qualified (any subject/grade welcome) 
Sales background ideal – telesales, retail, lettings etc. 
Ambitious and driven individual
Tenacious, robust and keen to succeed against adversity 
Confident working towards targets 
Bright and enquiring mind, keen to develop knowledge and always be asking that ‘one extra question’, pushing back for more information 
Outgoing and personable nature, you will be interacting with a wide and varied group of people, and it is essential within recruitment to make them feel at ease
A cracking sense of humour

You will be a recent graduate keen to forge a successful sales career.

The crux is quite simple:

If you want to join an organisation who are passionate about individual development, whilst working within a fun and relaxed environment, with the realistic potential for high earnings, this is the perfect opportunity for you.

Based in quintessential Faversham, we are 5 minutes from the M2 and A2 and close to public transport links, including a direct train link to London (45 minutes).

For more information please contact Louise Plummer, Internal Recruiter on 01795 531 934 for a confidential discussion.
