Due to ongoing growth, I am currently recruiting for a Senior recruitment consultant to join the Civil Engineering division in our head office in Rickmansworth. This desk has brilliant potential to keep on growing, you will be initially covering sectors such as rail, highways, and utilities but you can also branch out into other parts of Civil Engineering, the potential is that big.

On top of this, my team had a very impressive record of 0 rebates last you, which shows the quality of the process we have and the quality of clients we deal with. Due to the stability and brand of our team, this will make your job easier as there are so many existing relationships with clients and candidates you can get involved with.

This is a brilliant opportunity to make you a better recruitment consultant and see your progress throughout the business (something I have experienced first-hand). The long-term opportunities involve one day progressing into a divisional lead, managing and building a team, and heading up a sector. You will be working closely with me as well as having a strong and close relationship with both directors who will also be overseeing and helping your development. The successful recruiter will be involved in candidate generation across our database, job boards, Linkedin, advertising, and referrals.
