Experienced Recruitment Consultant Job (Manager level)- London Victoria- £35,049- £39,343 plus commission.
Your New Team:
Hays HR are the UK's largest, specialist recruiter with over 60 consultants. Last year we successfully recruited 1,440 HR professionals into HR Jobs Nationally. Within Hays HR, is the London Public Sector HR team, based in Ebury Gate, Victoria. This is a well-established and experienced team of three specialist consultants ranging from Recruitment Consultant to Senior Business Manager level. Hays are now looking to recruit an experienced Recruitment Consultant (Manager or Senior Manager level) to both run their own recruitment desk, whilst managing and leading this team of three.
You will specialise in the recruitment of permanent HR professionals into Higher Education establishments and Civil Service organisations. This is an incredibly warm desk whereby a previous Senior Manager has built up a portfolio of relationships with HR Director's across a number of organisations. This is an exciting opportunity to interact and deliver recruitment services to existing clients, but you will also be supported and trained to identify new clients, through targeted and strategic business development. There is vast opportunity to grow our market share across these sectors. The expectation is consistent fee growth and client wins. The benefit of working within this well-established team is you will be collaborating with high performing individuals, who are truly specialists in their sector and industry and have an impeccable reputation. This presents a wonderful environment for the right individual to make an impact quickly on their own desk, and be financially rewarded, whilst also growing your team of consultants at pace.
Your New Role:
As a specialist HR recruiter into the Public sector, you will become a subject matter expert in Human Resources and the various components that make up the discipline, including recruitment, learning and development, HR transformation and change, HR Systems, Employee Relations and many more. You will receive a wealth of training in these areas and benefit from the support of highly experienced managers in your office as well as specialist technical support from our National Specialism Director, and your Director who will share her 15+ years' experience across the specialism. An ability to learn quickly will be important as you will be expected to recruit successfully in these areas from HR Administrator level to HR Director level, almost immediately. Your client base will vary, and you will partner with Central Government Departments and Agencies and Universities. You will benefit from existing client relationships, but the expectation is that you will also be very pro-active and strategic in your business development activity. Business Development is key to being successful in this position and a large proportion of your time will be spent reaching out to sell our recruitment services to new clients, both in meetings and on the telephone. Your candidates are also of utmost importance. In a skill short market, you must demonstrate innovative ways of attracting the best HR talent and providing an outstanding service in introducing them to suitable employers, managing the candidate experience from initial contact through to appointment and aftercare. In summary your role will be an equal split of candidate engagement and client engagement activity. Your objectives will be based around three key strategic themes; Be visible and build relationships in HR, convert candidate relationships to client relationships and Be known for being a true HR recruiting expert in your market.
The second aspect of your role will be management. You will be responsible for the day to day operational management of three experienced Recruitment Consultants (Recruitment Consultant, Senior Recruitment Consultant and Senior Business Manager level). We are looking for someone to maximise the potential from the existing team, but grow this team and double it in size (both headcount and revenue.) You will work closely with your Director, to create a Business Plan of objectives, and regularly work together to deliver these objectives.
What you'll need to succeed:
Above all, you should have a strong work ethic where you are motivated and enthusiastic about carving out a career in recruitment and management. Prior recruitment experience is necessary (manage experience is helpful, but not essential), but you will be prepared to work hard, strive to achieve targets, and have an interest and ability to thrive in a corporate environment. You will be naturally inquisitive to help you build your market knowledge and build strong business relationships. You will be ambitious, driven to progress your career quickly and have strong sales skills with the ability to consult and advise both clients and candidates. To do all of this you will need excellent interpersonal skills with the passion to want to achieve results. You'll be ambitious with passion, credibility, and drive. Your unbeatable interpersonal skills will enable you to build strong relationships with your candidates and clients, which will be vital to your own success and the success of the business.
What you'll get in return:
At Hays, we know that recruitment can be demanding and competitive. However, as the market leader, Hays offers you the best training in the industry to support you in your development from Manager, Senior Manager and beyond. You will receive classroom training and on-the-job coaching from highly knowledgeable consultants which will enable you to develop a lasting and successful career. We believe in recognising success, so not only do we promote from within, but you will be rewarded with uncapped commission and unrivalled incentives and benefits.
