We are currently looking for a Recruitment Consultant to join our award-winning Manchester team. You will be an excellent team player with the enthusiasm, commitment and drive required to quickly learn new information and skills, also develop strong working relationships in a fast paced, target driven environment.

The role of a Recruitment Consultant can be demanding, especially in the highly competitive education market, for this reason new recruits within our organisation begin their journey in a supporting role for one of our sales teams, allowing time to develop an understanding of all processes relating to our most important resource, our candidates.

As a Recruitment Consultant, your main functions in year one will include:

  • Producing professional CV profiles to be used in school marketing
  • Increasing the number of candidates placed into paid work by working strategically with our sales teams
  • Achievement of weekly targets and KPI's, set in conjunction with your manager

Following a successful year recruiting candidates and supporting one of our sales teams, you will make the transition to the role of Associate Education Consultant, taking responsibility for developing developing school business, GP and market share, through the placement of candidates in to schools.

If you are up for the challenge and want to join a progressive, energetic and fast-growing business, I would love to hear from you. Please contact me on 07977244575 or send your CV to
