What you’ll be doing – and getting in return

Your key responsibilities will include providing full life cycle of the recruitment process, ensuring that all ARM's services are offered to clients where appropriate. In order to meet our team's ambitious goals, your responsibilities will include identifying and securing business opportunities, enhancing existing business in accordance with KPIs, visit clients and candidates as and when is required, successfully advertise vacancies with suitable sources that will generate candidates and will collect CVs. You'll arrange interviews by effectively liaising with the client, candidate and internal ARM teams. You will be responsible for skilling up and updating candidates and clients on the Colleague database, as well as progress reference checks and lead generation. You'll be expected to ensure that the information on Colleague database is logged relating to the client/candidates, to secure effective working relationships, and build upon existing business. A part of your day-to-day tasks would also include forwarding the appropriate administration to support each applicant's CV, adhering to legal business obligations at all times.

We offer an enviable package which includes a comprehensive training, development and mentoring programme to help you realise your own professional ambitions via a defined career path. We are proud of our many recognition schemes, which include monthly prizes and awards, twice-yearly city breaks, early finishes and the chance to ‘earn’ Friday afternoons off. We also provide a warm and inviting working environment, flexible working arrangements, free fruit and the odd hot breakfast. That’s in addition to a competitive salary and great commission-based earning potential.

The ideal junior recruitment consultant

We're looking for someone who is driven, hungry to achieve results, tenacious and has attention to detail. For you to get the role, you will need to be able to communicate confidently and persuasively, both in writing and verbally. The right person for the job will also be self-motivated and can identify opportunities, and also will have a "do what it takes" attitude to exceed your clients' and customers' expectations. Last, but not least, we want you to have a sense of humour. If we can't laugh together, we can't work together.

We’re a team of warm, friendly, supportive people. We help each other out, take turns to make the tea and applaud each other’s achievements. Individually, we’re searching for consultants who are self-sufficient, proactive and can think on their feet (cliché bingo, anyone?). We’re looking for someone who is dynamic, driven and determined. It goes without saying that your spoken and written communication style is engaging, persuasive and confident. Ultimately, you’ll go to the ends of the earth to meet your candidates’ and clients’ expectations.

Preferably, you have the following experience and qualifications, too:

  • educated to GCSE level
  • experience in a call centre/sales environment
  • experience in working to deadlines
  • customer service experience

Experience in a similar role and a graduate level education are desirable, but not required.
