Higher Success are an agency specialising in hiring people into the recruitment industry. One of our clients, a mid sized fast growing specialist commercial recruitment business based near Wrotham,Kent is looking to grow their team with 3 trainees keen to start a career in Buisness Development. 

The company hire specialist roles for their clients in a number of markets. They do contract and permanent hiring.

There is a low monthly threshold to meet to hit commission and then you will go straight to 20% commission, which is one of the best schemes in the market. OTE for year 1 is about £35K-£40K for an average consultant and £50K plus if you are really successful     

The Role

Companies outsource the sourcing of candidates and the managing of the recruitment process to recruitment agencies to get access to their expertise, specialist candidate database and to save them money hiring internally. They also use agencies to get access to the people they need faster than they can themselves.

Your role as a Trainee Recruitment Consultant is to market your clients positions well, source candidates on job boards, approach them on LinkedIn, use your database and your network of contacts to seek the right people for their roles and to obtain the interest of those individuals. You will then manage the recruitment process, booking in interviews, giving consultation to both sides and finally managing the offer to close the deal. A large part of this role is developing business realtionships with hiring mangers such as business owners, Directors and HR proffessionals in a range of new clients. 

Recruitment agencies earn 15 to 30% of the salary of a new starter as a fee or a percentage of their day rate if they are a contractor and you will take a percentage of this in commission for yourself. (20% in this case)

2nd and 3rd year earning potential can go up to 100k. There are lots of steps to be promoted to, salary increases to be had and you will get better and better at the role and your clients will start returning to you to use you again meaning that over time you do less new business development to make the same amount of money.
