Internal Vacancy

Recruitment Consultant – an established desk in the RC Frame and Groundworks team

About the role:

We currently have a vacancy for a Recruitment Consultant based out of our office in Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire. The successful candidate will take on the responsibility of running an established desk in our existing Reinforced Concrete Frames and Groundworks team.

This team forms part of our thriving Civil Engineering team, which collectively billed more than £600k between 3 individuals last year. You will be working alongside one of the founding Directors who has over 10 years’ recruitment experience in the Civil Engineering sector with the majority of that focused on this specialist area. 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 8 years and is currently responsible for £450,000 of permanent fees on a yearly basis. There is the expectation that this will increase considerably over the next 2-3 years as our relationships with our clients strengthens and expenditure in this sector increases as planned.

The dedicated recruiter will be given a good balance between support and autonomy to manage their desk. And in doing so, they will manage the process, develop and manage client and candidate relationships, source candidates for roles, liaise with other consultants in the business and will fulfil a full 360 recruiter role.

As a growing company, your position within the business will naturally elevate to a role with more responsibility, gaining more experience over time. There is room for this individual to not only progress towards Senior Consultant but beyond.

We offer a personal service to our clients providing recruitment of white collar professionals; all made possible by our prevalent knowledge of the industry and access to high-quality candidates.

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 in the industry. You can expect a basic salary from £20,000 to £35,000 and on target earnings of a minimum £40,000 to £65,000 in the first year. In addition to basic salary and commission with no threshold, we offer generous quarterly bonuses, quarterly target based office events, regular team social events, on-going perks through Perkbox and smaller benefits such as a drinks fridge on Fridays.


About the requirements:

Successful applicants will ideally have prior experience of 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 offers 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.
