Job description.

Trainee/Junior Recruitment Consultant
Salary: £23,000 – £27,000
Location: Canterbury (2 days a week in the office, 3 days from home)
How does work freedom, clear career development, and the opportunity for huge earning potential sound to you?
Good, great even – because if so, that’s just some of the benefits a career in recruitment will get you.
You can safely say goodbye to stagnant salary increases and dingy corner offices, and hello to a career in which you can directly get back what you put in as well as opportunities to determine your own work/life balance.
You’ll be working with us – the leading property recruitment company that for the last decade has cultivated a variety of well-known clients, including FTSE 100 housebuilders. We hire from across the property cycle, specializing in recruiting for roles within Land & Planning, Sales & Marketing, and Technical Design and Engineering.
As a trainee/juior recruiter, you’ll be given ample time to learn what being a recruiter means along with the tools you need to succeed. Reporting to a Senior Recruiter, you will be helping to oversee the candidate recruitment cycle. You’ll be helping to source CVs, speak to candidates, arrange interviews, and help your team members with any outstanding tasks.
In return, you will be rewarded with a working environment that prioritises your development, listens to your ideas and gives you the autonomy you need to deliver tasks. We’re a small team and our values which include honesty, curiosity and bravery are woven into everything we do. We work hard to make a working environment that encompasses everyone, and offer a variety of benefits including 2pm finishes every Friday, additional annual leave days, career coaching, volunteer days and fun-based, monthly get-togethers.
general responsibilities
To help get a better understanding of what your working week may look like, some of your general responsibilities will include:

  • Managing the complete recruitment cycle on the candidate side. This starts with research/ identification and goes through to CV and interview management, ending with the successful candidate starting in their new role.
  • Selling and marketing of active candidates who are looking to make career moves. This can be through email or phone contact with both existing and prospective clients as well as using third-party sources such as LinkedIn.
  • Managing and updating of the company database in a timely and effective fashion.
  • Assisting your team where needed on any appropriate duties relating to assignments or client jobs.

about you
You’re going to be a great fit for this role if you:

  • Have a track record of high achievements with proven examples
  • Have previous sales/recruitment experience
  • Are self-motivated, enjoy hitting targets, and can easily build strong relationships
  • Have strong verbal and written communication skills
  • Are driven, curious, and enjoy working at pace
  • Match our company values

working with us
Benefits of working with us include:

  • Hybrid working environment between Canterbury office and remote work
  • Flexible working hours
  • 25 basic annual leave days, plus the chance to gain an extra day’s annual leave for each year of service up to 28 days
  • An additional 3 days extra leave in December as well as a day off for your birthday
  • 2pm close every Friday
  • Fun monthly, team catch-ups
  • Career coaching

If that wasn’t enough, we are always adding more benefits determined by what our team values or needs to succeed!
If all this sounds like one big yes, we’d like to hear from you.
Please note, we do offer flexible working arrangements, however, for the first few months we expect you to follow the standardised hours of 8.30am – 5.30pm Monday to Thursday, and 8.30am – 2pm on a Friday. The days you will be working in the office will be Mondays and Wednesday.
Please note, you must have the right to work in the UK.
