Recruitment Consultant - Full Training Provided
Calling all new and recent Graduates looking for an opportunity to kick-start their full-time career!
If like most Graduates I speak to, you are looking for a high reward / high support role with great career prospects, then you should consider a career as a Professional Recruiter!
Who are we?
Faststream is a high-end recruitment business in the maritime sector, with offices in UK, Houston and Singapore. Our Clients range from Oil & Gas Companies in the Offshore sector, High-Net-Worth Superyacht Owners to Cruise Companies and everyone in-between! We recruit from Graduate to Chief Executive and Cadet to Captain. Providing recruitment solutions for more than 18 years, our teams are established, niche and very busy! Our consultants work on specialist desks which enables them to build their knowledge, credibility, and billings quickly!
What to expect in the role?
Our best recruiters spend most of their day on the phone, talking to clients and candidates. They are developing relationships, building their people networks, understanding what businesses need, looking for problems to solve (versus jobs to fill), marketing themselves and their best opportunities, managing recruitment deals and ultimately, making placements!
Who make the best recruitment consultants?
We have nurtured and developed lots of bright graduates over the years. People join us with a variety of degree backgrounds including Business Management, Psychology, and Maritime, but they all have the same qualities -
- Great phone presence - Can get people talking, are engaging and personable
- Tenacious & Resilient - Won't take no for an answer, will ask questions, overcome objections and stay in control
- Gets People - Understands what makes people tick, how to sell to them and influence their decisions
- Good judgement/time management - You have to make good decisions every day about how you spend your time and which clients, jobs, and candidates to work and not to work.
- Restless and Competitive - Strong sense of urgency, makes things happen, drives own results, likes working to targets and wants to be the best.
Why work for us?
There are lots of recruitment companies in Southampton, big and small, we think we offer the best of both worlds! We are big enough to have a proven name in the market (19 years of financial stability and an experienced management team) yet still small enough (around 100 people) to ensure you are not just one of a number, you receive tailored, sector specialist training and have lots of opportunities for career progression without having to wait for someone above you to move on!
Our basic salaries range from £18-22k with realistic on target earnings of £27-30k in year 1, and £35/40k+ after that. Basic salaries/OTE's are always dependant on experience and so even if you are currently enjoying a better package elsewhere, still call me - what have you got to lose? We also offer 23 days holiday, flexi-time, cash prizes, social events, company car allowance & a phone (on promotion) and many more great benefits, including one of the best offices and views in Southampton. Why not pop in for a coffee this week and take a look for yourself!
