GRADUATE Trainee/Entry-Level Recruitment Consultant
Established just 12 years ago, we've experienced unrivalled year-on-year growth. Opening 4 offices and 6 highly successful recruitment companies in such a short time frame has seen us consistently achieving a well-deserved spot on the Virgin Fast Track 100 as well as the merit of being one of the UK's most profitable independently-owned recruitment companies.
Due to company expansion and the creation of emerging teams, we are currently seeking graduates looking to pursue a fast-paced career with great opportunities to progress and earn uncapped commission within all 4 of our bases - Bristol (Clifton and Portishead), Truro and London (Paddington).
As an organic company, we firmly believe in recruiting only at trainee level therefore no prior recruitment experience is necessary or needed. We have our very own market-leading in-house Business Performance Academy which provides comprehensive training from Day One right up to Exec-level in the form of on-the-job' coaching, networking evenings as well as classroom based courses. Initially you will be assigned a mentor who will be able to provide one-on-one support and guidance whilst you train - this is a great chance to learn from one of the companies top billers.
As much of the training is on-the-job' you have the potential to earn commission from Day One.
As a trainee, your day to day schedule will include:
Developing relationships with new clients as well as managing accounts with existing ones.
With a strong belief that our success lies entirely with our people, we reward performance with promotion and have a structured, target-based progression system which allows achieving individuals to fast-track their career.
Most individuals reach management level within 18-24months in the business with top consultants achieving this usually within 14-18months. Due to the organic set up of the company, there is no glass ceiling to hit - as long as you are working hard and performing, we are keen to train you to reach the next level.
Realistically you will earn between GBP25-30k in your first 12 months with us - this will also include a GBP3k rise to your basic salary as you're promoted from a trainee to a consultant. Within 18 months here, you should be on target to earn GBP40k+ and within four years, you will be earning in excess of GBP80k+.
Many top consultants in the company earn a six figure salary however there is no limit on your earnings and we have a number of consultants who have earned over GBP45K in their first year at SmithCorp - what you put in here is what you will get out.
Consultants who consistently hit targets can expect invites to three all-inclusive 5* holidays a year - Las Vegas, Portugal and a ski trip as well as Monthly Lunch Clubs. New trainees are often on our trips. It's very simple - hit your target and you will be on the plane! Additionally, you will receive a gym membership, company pension and healthcare plan as well as regular team and company nights/meals out. We reward longevity with Rolex targets.
