Graduate Recruitment Consultant

What is a Graduate Recruitment Consultant?

A Recruitment Consultant is someone who supports both candidates and clients through the process of hiring new staff.

Working in one of our niche brands, you’ll be seeking out the best talent on behalf of your clients. This could be on a one-off or ongoing basis, for a single role or a range of skill sets in your industry.

Through training, mentoring and coaching, our Graduate Recruitment Consultants develop knowledge and expertise within their niche market sector, as well as an understanding of the full recruitment life cycle.

About the role

Your role will be to establish talent pools of candidates from a variety of sources, including online databases, social media, advertising and marketing campaigns, networking, referrals and headhunting activities. You’ll then use your understanding of the vacancy requirements to identify and pre-screen suitable matches for your clients.

Once you’ve completed your shortlisting, you’ll be responsible for managing the interview, selection, offer and on-boarding process for both the client and the candidate. This will involve arranging interviews, gathering and providing feedback, keeping all parties informed throughout the process and providing advice and guidance as necessary.

Once a successful candidate is identified, you’ll be responsible for delivering the offer, and making sure they are fully prepared to start their new role!
