Let’s dispel a frequent misconception – recruitment isn’t an HR job!

Recruitment is about sales and delivery of the highest levels of service to our clients and candidates. We believe it’s a hidden gem amongst sales jobs. There are few jobs with the earning potential and the career opportunities that recruitment has to offer.

A consultants role is wide and varied, definitely not just another 9-5 job. Consultants are required to fact find, network, headhunt, consult, career coach and much more – perhaps all in the same call!

To be a successful consultant you needn’t have any technical or sales experience – what you will have are the competencies and desire to exceed expectations and beat your competition.

The majority of our job is done over the phone with a small percentage being done face-to-face so you’ll need excellent communication skills and will feel comfortable interacting with any level of customer.

Amongst a consultant’s duties are:

  • Cold calling candidates and clients
  • Advertising jobs online
  • Searching internal and external databases to attract new ‘customers’
  • Selling the services of the company to new and existing clients and candidates
  • Telephone interviewing candidates and assessing their suitability for roles
  • Effectively managing your time and resources to be effective
  • Networking with clients and candidates to increase your market penetration
  • Self analysing performance and self improving where possible

Suitable candidates that believe they have all the attributes to succeed will be joining a specialist legal recruitment company launched in January 2005 by a management team that first came together in 1996. It is without question recognised as one of the UK’s leading providers of legal appointments at all levels for lawyers, legal executives, solicitors and paralegals.
