Recruitment Consultant – Established desk, working directly alongside a director

Recruitment Consultant – Established desk, working directly alongside a director

  • £22,000 - £36,000 + uncapped commission and benefits
  • Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire

About the opportunity:

We currently have an opportunity for an experienced consultant to take on the responsibility of running an established desk within our existing Reinforced Concrete Frames and Groundworks division.

This desk is part of our thriving Civil Engineering team, which collectively bills on average more than £700k between 4 individuals per year. You will be working alongside one of the Director’s who has over 15 years’ recruitment experience in the Civil Engineering sector with the majority of that focused within this specialist area, so doors will be open, candidates will be available and you will be able to get up and running very quickly.

This opportunity will provide you with the platform to further develop a lucrative section of the business and build on a strong, focused client list. The Reinforced Concrete Frames and Groundworks desk has been developed over the last 12 years and is currently responsible for £450,000 of permanent fees on a yearly basis with the expectation that this will increase considerably over the next 2-3 years as our relationships with our clients strengthen and expenditure in this sector increases as planned.


About Cityscape Recruitment:

We work with construction professionals considering their next career move and who want to make the most informed decision – now and for the entirety of their careers. Having been established for over 12 years, we have built a solid foundation in our sector and have one of the most credible reputations in the industry, an excellent staff base of skilled consultants and a vibrant, professional and exciting working environment.

We believe one of the reasons we have been so successful is that we know our industries inside and out. Our team has a background in construction, civil engineering and consultancy. We talk our client’s language.

You can also be confident that we do things right. It is common for recruitment to be tarnished as a volume-based, transactional sector with a lack of understanding for the nuances of the market within which each company operates. You won’t find any of that at Cityscape Recruitment. We work to very high standards with transparency and expect our team to operate armed with extensive industry knowledge, and we value and reward our people for delivering against that vision.

Cityscape recruitment has an excellent track record for staff retention. So much so, 40% of the team have been at the company for five years or more. We know that our success is down to our people; there is no point in striving to enhance the careers of construction professionals if we are not doing the same for our team.

We have a proven history of developing trainees into the best consultants in their field – each team member is given encouragement, support and, most importantly, the opportunities to progress. They are also rewarded for their achievements. As with any sales-based role, we offer a competitive benefits package. This includes a quarterly bonus and a generous monthly commission structure which often exceeds the base salary. To put it simply, we know that our employees are the foundation of our business. We make it our responsibility to ensure that this foundation is looked after.


About the benefits and rewards:

Remuneration will be extremely generous. We base salaries on the experience and abilities of each professional but offer beyond the typical level seen in the industry. We operate an uncapped commission structure that can significantly enhance your yearly income. In addition to your base salary and commission payments, we offer generous quarterly bonuses, monthly rewards, a pension scheme, a mobile phone, regular social events. You will also get the opportunity to work with and learn from a team of well-established, engaging recruitment professionals.


About the requirements:

Successful applicants will ideally have prior experience in construction recruitment and will be capable of business generation and client delivery leading to fees. However, we are willing to consider and meet with applicants who have proven recruitment experience that is not within the construction sector or applicants with limited exposure to the recruitment sector, for example, those in a resourcer/trainee role who are looking for the next step.

We are also keen to consider individuals who are qualified in construction or civil engineering or have previously worked in the RC frame & groundwork sector specifically. The market knowledge and understanding gained from this background offer a unique starting point for a potentially excellent career in construction recruitment.

Most importantly a successful Recruitment Consultant will be self-motivated, have a confident personality, be willing to work with a variety of people, be conscientious, show strong organisational skills and demonstrate a high level of intelligence.
