Trainee Consultant - Sales - Edinburgh - City Centre

We are looking for ambitious, hungry and driven salespeople to join our technology recruitment firm. Post-Covid, we find ourselves in the rare position of being able to hire, and we want to uncover the next generation of successful recruiters and offer them the opportunity to 'turbo charge' their careers. There's no question that recruitment can offer a life-changing opportunity, but it doesn't happen for everyone; you must be willing to put the work in.

More people fail in the first 18 months of a recruitment career than succeed. If that intimidates you; perhaps this isn't the opportunity for you. If the opportunity excites you and you know you can be in the minority of successful trainees; then read on!

Who are we?

We are an independent recruitment company specialising in the provision of specialist IT staff, headquartered in Edinburgh. We were founded in 2009 and have grown from three employees to over forty worldwide including a successful office in Bangkok. We are a team of extremely driven, ambitious people, and our goal is to become the UK's largest (and most successful) IT specialist recruitment company. All of our management team either joined as trainees or were the original founders. We promote from within and offer opportunities to progress for those who demonstrate capability and desire. We are friendly and welcoming and offer a bespoke training programme for all trainees. Our clients include all types of companies from global behemoths, to small software providers. In short, we help companies who your granny has heard of, and who your granny has never heard of!

Who will we consider?

Anyone from raw graduates to experienced salespeople. We have consultants who have joined us straight from University or after a stint in car sales. Sales experience is preferred, but if you have graduated and find yourself desperate for a career that offers progression and the chance to earn decent money quickly - we would love to chat with you! You must have excellent communication skills (written and verbal) and you must be comfortable spending a large part of your day making outbound telephone calls. You must also be computer literate, and knowledge of professional networking sites will be beneficial!

What will I be doing every day?

Recruitment is often described as fast paced, varied and fairly intense. All of these adjectives are true, but they don't really give you much insight into the role. You will be given all the tools and training to become a very good recruitment professional.

Throughout your training and beyond, you will be responsible for the following:

** Identifying potential customers, calling them, and using your powers of persuasion to convince them to use your service. This includes negotiating commercial agreements with a wide array of companies.

** Finding technology professionals and convincing them that your customers are offering them a career they'd be willing to trade in their current role for - no mean feat btw!

** Immersing yourself in the technology sector and attending/organising technology events, meet-ups and conferences.

** Being responsible for the entire recruitment lifecycle from initial contact to organising interviews, finalising employment offers and post-placement care.

If you have read through the advert and you think this could be interesting for you, please apply and attach a covering letter explaining why a career in sales for you. The cover letter does not need to be 'war and peace', it can be as long as you want it to be. The contact for the role is Stuart Manderson
