We are looking for a Recruitment Consultant to join our lovely team!
We like to think of ourselves as a bit different to the other recruitment agencies out there … we are a close knit team, we support each other and have a great working environment with lots of flexibility.
We love working for our clients - there is nothing we enjoy more than working on a new recruitment project, the meatier the better, we love a challenge and a tight deadline too! We like a project where we have to think outside of the box and dig deep into our recruitment skills and experience to find the absolutely best candidate/s for the job. We work closely with all of our clients (most of which have come to us on recommendation from all our hard work over the years) it is our job to deliver the candidate they need but at the same time make their life easier. Always thinking ahead, being organised and making sure we have everything covered. We become an extension of their HR Department and part of their team that they always reach out to when they need help. We also want our candidates have a great recruitment experience. We go the extra mile to make sure everything our candidates need they have in front of them. Finding a new job is a big deal, having a friendly, supportive Recruitment Consultant on their side helps make the process run so much more smoothly and hopefully makes it enjoyable too (lots of our candidates have become our clients, that says a lot about us!).
We always go the extra mile … for our clients and candidates and we are nice and friendly too, it's a really simple approach but we have found it works rather well!
