Contract Type

Prospectus is looking for an ambitious, values driven individual to join us as a Trainee Recruitment Consultant on our Education team. This area is the longest established part of the business - we started placing temporary staff in London Universities all the way back in 1956.

Prospectus has a significant profile in the beyond profit sector. We work with a huge range of organisations including charities, social enterprises, education establishments and arts bodies. Our trainee consultant programme is an opportunity for an engaged and motivated individual with minimal experience but lots of potential to build a career with a leading recruitment business.

This is a 6 month contract and you will spend the 6 months shadowing and working alongside a Senior Consultant/Manager developing your knowledge and understanding of the business, the recruitment industry, and the beyond profit sector. Areas covered will include: writing job adverts and responding to applications; sourcing and interviewing candidates; winning new business and managing client relationships; and representing Prospectus at events and client meetings. Our aim with our trainees is always that they successfully complete the training contract and become permanent members of staff.

The ideal candidate is proactive and able to use their own initiative whilst very much working as part of a team. You will have excellent interpersonal and communication skills tied with the ability to multi-task, prioritise and manage a varied workload. Preferably with some sales experience, you are really interested in learning and love to be surrounded by interesting people.

Prospectus are a unique recruitment agency in that we do not pay individual commission to consultants; this promotes a more service driven approach for candidates and clients and reassures all parties we are motivated to place people by making the correct match on the vacancy, rather than for a financial gain for individuals.

The role is offered with great benefits including 23 days holiday a year, a profit related bonus scheme, a contributory pension, childcare vouchers, a bike loan, an employee loan scheme, discounted gym membership and payroll giving. Prospectus also gives all staff 6 days off each year to volunteer with any organisation of their choice.

Application is by CV only at this stage but if you'd like to have a chat about the role please give our Head of Talent, Emma Bradman, a call on 020 7691 1939.

We are happy to discuss flexible working opportunities for this role.
