We are Europe’s leading IT Recruitment Company, providing services in the permanent and contract market for I.T. Professionals.

The I.T. arena is currently experiencing exceptional growth

We currently have vacancies in the following offices:

  • Birmingham
  • Bristol
  • Reading

Now is a great time for you to break into a fast paced sales environment with full training and support.

The Role

Recruitment requires dynamic, sales focused individuals who can balance new business generation, account management and a consultative approach to your client’s recruitment needs.

Recruitment is above all a people business. Stripped to the essentials, it is the practice of selling candidates to clients and clients to candidates. Seems fairly straight forward doesn't it?

The truth of course is slightly different. There are many qualities needed to become a successful recruitment consultant:





Self Belief in yourself to succeed

It isn't easy, but when the potential rewards are so high you wouldn't expect it to be. And what rewards! Every one of our principal consultants, managers and directors (including the MD) started their careers as trainee recruitment consultants, doing exactly the same job as you'll be doing if you join us.

The Rewards

Excellent earning opportunities for the money motivated graduates, also team incentives to win company holidays for the team players, and the chance to get recognised quickly for doing a great job.

It's fast, exciting and great fun.

A work hard, play hard ethic may be a cliché, but that doesn't make it less true. The atmosphere here, both in and out of work, is electric. Your colleagues are also your friends, and socialising is seen as an important part of the lifestyle. We also run regular incentive schemes, and many of our consultants will be enjoying a monthly gourmet lunch at one of the country's top restaurants, spending a day out rallying or powerboat racing, or even savouring the delights of Las Vegas or New York on an all expenses paid weekend away.

Boring it isn't.

The Training

Our comprehensive training is aimed at and specially tailored for Graduates starting out in recruitment. Through extensive classroom training and role-plays you will learn how to win business and develop relationships with clients, provide an outstanding recruitment service and develop yourself into Top Performers in your field.

We have helped many Graduates go on to earn in excess of £80k in their second year in IT Recruitment; we know what it takes and how to get you there!

If you have what it takes to be outstanding in IT Recruitment prove it today.

All we require is Graduates who display these characteristics.

  • Tenacity and attitude
  • Confidence and a ‘big’ personality
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Desire to be the best
  • Drive and determination


Discovery is one of the leading consultancies in Graduate Sales Recruitment. We know the needs and desires of graduates aspiring to be some of the UK’s top sales people. A career in sales can be very challenging and rewarding. All our positions will provide you with a good basic salary and in many cases, the opportunity to earn substantial bonuses, company cars and other benefits including healthcare and in some case all expenses paid trips abroad.
