Graduate Recruitment Consultant - Birmingham
WHO ARE WE?
James Andrews Recruitment Solutions is a specialist recruitment consultancy that is rapidly expanding across the UK. We work with some of the biggest brands and blue chip companies on the market today. We are an accredited Investors in People Company and the way we develop our staff was praised in their independent report that stated, "Learning is an everyday activity at James Andrews".
WHO ARE YOU?
A career in recruitment is ideal for intelligent and sharp minded individuals who have the ability to hit the ground running and are looking to work in a fast paced environment. It’s an exciting and fast-paced role, which means you will need to be mentally agile, but you will get support and encouragement from every member of the team from your first day and beyond.
WHAT WILL YOU BE DOING?
You’ll be involved in the whole recruitment process - from sourcing candidates for clients’ roles, using numerous marketing methods, to offering 'after-care’ services to those candidates once they’ve landed the perfect job. You’ll get to develop relationships with prestigious clients and talented professionals, while working towards realistic targets.
From the very first day you join your training and continued personal development are our priorities, which is why we dedicate a budget of over £225,000 every year exclusively for training.
On day one you will be assigned a personal mentor who will not just be involved in your training but will be there for you as and when you need them in those all-important first few months.
All training will be delivered by experienced Senior Consultants up to Director Level who have a wealth of experience and unprecedented success within the recruitment industry. Once this thorough induction has been completed, and throughout your career, you will receive continuous training and your career development will be regularly reviewed and encouraged. All programmes are designed and coordinated by our specialist Training & Development Manager.
WHY SHOULD YOU APPLY?
Not only will you enjoy a very competitive base salary, personalised training programme, and a personal mentor, there will be numerous career opportunities open to you as we continue to expand throughout the UK, and of course an uncapped commission structure that you join from day one.
Flexible Working Incentive: Been here 12 months? Hit your targets for the quarter? Take advantage of either finishing early or starting late for the next quarter and enjoy that extra lie-in on a Monday, get those all-important "life admin" tasks out of the way, or simply get to the pub early and get a round in for your colleagues!
Subsidised parking: There is the opportunity to apply for a very generous subsidy to help pay towards parking costs if you decided to commute via car. This will help year-round with weekend shopping trips, not just for work!
Holiday allocation: Our holidays start at a generous 23 days per year (plus eight bank holidays!), rising to 25 after two years
Monthly and quarterly prizes: We hold regular competitions where you can win some excellent prizes such as iPads, extra holidays, or a visit to a spa for some pampering
Vision Days: Be a part of our future by helping to shape our policies and practices during regular one to ones with our Director and the Chairman of the company. So many of our best ideas have come from these sessions including the complete relaxation of the clothing policy, improved commission, and the creation of a new level of seniority in our structure known as Principal Consultant
Free gym membership: After 12 months’ service you will be entitled to free corporate gym membership. Luckily the sites are based close to our offices so you won’t need to waste too much energy in actually getting to the gym!
WHERE WILL I BE WORKING?
Our Birmingham office, which opened in 2010, is set in picturesque St. Paul’s Square next to the historic Jewellery Quarter. In 2013 we moved to the top floor of our building after outgrowing the first premises. Now with space for over 40 employees we have become a major graduate recruiter in a very short time span. The office also benefits from a lovely view of the old courtyard and church below, making it a peaceful oasis in a busy and fast-paced city (and a quiet place to have your lunch on a sunny day!).
