Trainee Recruitment Consultant


Enterprise Recruitment Ltd is a technical recruitment agency specialising in Electronics, Software, Manufacturing and Mechanical Engineering. As a Trainee Recruitment Consultant you do NOT need experience of our sector to work here - we will provide you with on-going support and training in both recruitment and our technical areas.

We will provide you with the tools you need to be successful in recruitment, but how do you know if recruitment is for you? Well, the type of personality traits we look for include natural self-starters who are success-driven and money-motivated.  We need people who are proactive, confident, self-motivated and organised. This role is not to be confused with an HR role - this is a sales position where you are financially rewarded for the candidate placements you make. However, it does NOT involve endless cold calls.

To be successful you will need to possess the following qualities in abundance:

- Ambition

- Superb communication skills

- Drive and self-motivation

- Hunger to succeed

- Confidence

- Want and desire to make money

You will be joining a small and friendly team with plenty of scope for career progression. All Trainee Recruitment Consultants are fully trained via our on-the-job training scheme and operate in 360 degree technical recruitment roles – which means you cover ALL aspects of the recruitment cycle, not just one element. These are fast-paced and varied positions, ideal for individuals who are looking to join a company at entry-level from which they can develop their career. Several of our existing staff have previously worked within engineering and/or have engineering backgrounds themselves prior to becoming recruitment consultants.

We are growing so there is scope to progress your career with us. We will train you to become a skilled sales professional. However, this position is not as easy as some people think.  You`ll need a steely determination to be able to take the good times with the bad, handle people who mess you around and be willing to put in that extra bit of effort, but this IS the sort of position where you clearly reap the benefits of hard work and effort. In your first year you`ll likely make £25K - £30K, after that, it’s up to you, but £50K and more is very achievable.

You will work with a diverse range of clients across the UK working to find Engineers from Graduate to Management level.

This is a great opportunity to build upon your skills gained at school and university and be trained from scratch to become a successful.

We will offer you:

  • Competitive base salary (£20k+)
  • Uncapped, highly rewarding commission structure
  • Bonuses, plus the opportunity to earn a new iPad on the Training Scheme!
  • Additional team rewards for achieved targets such as trips abroad, ski weekends, cakes & curry nights
  • Autonomy, accountability & variety
  • Friendly environment in a growing company
  • 25 days holiday
  • Employee Healthcare Scheme
  • Free parking
