Are you target driven, hungry for success and tenacious? Are you a ‘people’s person’ and love communicating with people at all levels from all different backgrounds? Are you looking for an entry level/trainee position?

 Then look no further! We have a superb opportunity to join our award-winning, Manchester city centre based office as a Trainee Recruitment Consultant. If you’re looking for a role where you can be supported, trained and mentored throughout your career and have wondered what the role of a Trainee Recruitment Consultant is then look no further!

 About Us

Lucy Walker Recruitment, an award-winning Agency based in Manchester City Centre is looking for an experienced Recruitment Consultant to join our fantastic and successful team here in our gorgeous (with a hint of purple!) offices in the city centre!

Having celebrated 25 years in business last year, it’s no wonder we have such a successful brand and a superb team behind us and we are continually experiencing growth! Specialising in all office based roles of all levels, with salaries starting at entry level up to £60,000 and across a multitude of sectors and industries across Lancashire, no day is ever the same!

We have a strong & focused team across both of our offices in Leeds and in our Manchester office. There are 20 employees across both offices; all with the same mind-set, goals, ambition to succeed and hunger to do well! And that’s what we want from you! We have a really low staff retention rate and have never lost a Consultant to a competitor – ever! Now that says something doesn’t it?!

The role

We place suitable candidates into suitable roles with our clients – simple, right? Well there’s a lot more to it than that and no day is ever the same! The hard work begins on day 1, but it will be worth it for sure! You won’t find a more rewarding career!

Candidates: Following on from writing and managing your own adverts you will screen and meet with candidates to assess their suitability for live roles that we’re working on. You will match their skills and requirements to those of our clients, format and send CVs, arrange interviews and manage this process. There will also be an element of sourcing for the right candidates proactively on the job boards. Whether it’s helping a graduate into their first steps of their career, or supporting someone with an exciting opportunity for career progression you will be responsible for the management of your candidates and ensuring they receive the best service possible and ultimately help find their dream job.

Building your desk: This is no mean feat – building your client base from the beginning is certainly a challenge and not for the faint hearted (but who doesn’t love a challenge?!) however the rewards are endless and the sense of achievement will be second-to-none! You will treat your desk as your own business and watch it flourish! You will develop business from the thousands of clients already on our database and develop a ‘hunter gatherer’ attitude to follow up hot leads! You will also get ‘out and about’ and attend networking events, client visits, business pitches and support your colleagues with organising and being part of Lucy Walker Recruitment events including networking, drinks mixers and lunches.

Earn Commission ASAP: While developing your desk is vital, you will be able to earn commission straight away, as here at Lucy Walker Recruitment we believe ‘team work makes the dream work’ and with a business model that means all consultants work together to match their candidates to all live roles you will have the opportunity to ‘split fees’ with your colleagues and start earning commission from the get-go! This is not a model used across all Consultancies so don’t overlook this way of working – it’s a great one & we know it works!

Not sold on us quite yet? Really? OK, check out our benefits below;

  • Along with an excellent basic salary and the opportunity to earn extremely well with commission we also have the following fantastic benefits in place;
