EXPIRY NOTICE: This job has now expired and will not be accepting any more applications.

Exceptional opportunities on offer for graduate-calibre candidates with strong communication and persuasive skills and a passion for success to join their London team. 

Our client’s culture is something that they’re rightly proud of.  Their teams are success-driven and enjoy being top-achievers.  Their people count their colleagues as friends and socialising is a big part of their 'work hard play hard' culture.  Their sales floor is intense, fun - and certainly never dull.  They understand that recognition is important and reward their performers with great pay packages, great incentives and fast-track promotions.  Their culture will suit anyone looking for an inclusive yet competitive environment where everyone is striving to be the best.

Salary & Incentive Packages

Put simply, they offer exceptional rewards to exceptional people.  Basics range between £20,000 - 22,000 and there are regular pay reviews at 6, 12 and 24 months.  Their commission scheme rewards talent and 1st year OTEs are £35k, 2nd year OTEs are £60k and their top biller earns £200k a year.  These are very realistic OTEs.  On top of great salary packages, they also offer outstanding incentives.  These includes weekends away to Las Vegas and Moscow, lunches at exclusive restaurants such as Nobu or Le Gavroche, company cars ranging from Polos to Porsches and even the opportunity to take your friend or partner away for a weekend in Europe.

The Role

You'll be selling their recruitment services to a wide range of companies - both SMEs and blue-chips. You will be responsible for direct sales, negotiation and growing your own business.  You'll be developing your own list of clients that then come back to you with repeat business.  The role is mainly phone-based but client visits will also be part of your job.  This is a demanding role and only suitable for those willing to give it their all.  They provide structured, formal training that will develop your natural sales skills.  

The Future

They’ve spent 17 years growing organically and will continue to do so.  All their managers and directors joined as Trainee Recruitment Consultants.  They don't take on experienced people as they promote from within, as this is far more motivating for their staff and it recognises the talent they have within their company.  They have, as always, ambitious plans for growth and need talented people to join them, rise through the ranks and manage their teams.  Their Trainee Recruitment Consultants are their future managers and directors.

What You Need To Do

To succeed you'll need to be a brilliant communicator, able to engage people and be naturally persuasive.  You'll need to show us how ambitious you are, by telling us what you've previously achieved and what you're aiming for next.  You must be able to demonstrate a positive outlook, as it's essential in a sales role. 


They have offices in London, Reading, Bristol, Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds, Glasgow, Amsterdam and Munich. If you are looking to work in any of their European Offices you must be able to speak the relevant language to the Country. They have one European team that are currently based in their London offices but will be relocating to Paris so candidates who speak French would be desirable.
