The Opportunity

As a Trainee Recruitment Consultant, you will learn about the whole spectrum of recruitment, getting to know people in different roles with life sciences, across various geographical locations (inside and outside the UK). You will start to have a range of responsibilities including:

Searching for candidates with specific skills and experiences
Conducting interviews and expanding your industry knowledge through fascinating conversations
Building your network of contacts across the industry
Creating attractive adverts
Writing and sharing engaging content about scientific innovations
Assisting in the coaching and support of individuals going through interview and offer processes
This will be a busy, challenging role which requires dedication and positive energy. In turn, the rewards will be enormous as you begin to progress on your chosen career path. This path may be within delivery (candidate-focused), client services (business development-focused) or recruitment consultant (sometimes referred to as '360').

We work Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday in our modern, welcoming office in the centre of Horsham, and Mondays and Fridays from home.

Experience Required

We are looking for someone with a good educational background, some experience gained in a customer-facing role, a willingness to learn and a positive, upbeat manner. Experience in sales, estate agency, project management or client services will all be useful. You will ideally live within 30 minutes of Horsham for office-based days.
