Trainee Education Recruitment Consultant - Bristol City Centre - Immediate Starts Available!

FULL TIME ROLE ONLY - Monday to Friday 7am-5.30pm (office working) term time and part time (4.5 hour days) when the schools are closed for half terms and summer holidays! Fantastic Perks! We reward you well for the long hours you work in term time!

Do you want to work for one of The Sunday Times 100 best small companies? Have you got future aspirations to work as an Education Consultant for a market leading agency?

We are currently looking for a Recruitment Co-ordinator/Trainee Recruitment Consultant to join our highly motivated and experienced Bristol 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.

On day one, you will be enrolled into the IMPACT Academy, a carefully curated training program that offers a blend of on-the-job and group training sessions, provided by some of the most successful education recruiters in the industry. You'll be supported every step of the way, by your team, your manager and a personal mentor.

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.

Your main functions in year one will include:

  • Resourcing & interviewing candidates for placement into temporary and permanent positions
  • Producing professional CV profiles to be used in client 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 supporting a sales team, you will make the transition to the role of Trainee Consultant (Recruitment Co-Ordinator), taking responsibility for developing GP and market share, through the placement of candidates and the provision of excellent service levels to clients.

Tradewind is one of the top education recruitment agencies in Bristol and one of the fastest-growing across the UK. In exchange for your experience and commitment, we offer you great benefits including: above market base salaries and guaranteed annual salary reviews, a market-leading commission scheme, all commissions paid from your start date and not reliant on a probationary period, and lots of other perks along the way.

We welcome applications from education professionals seeking a career change, graduates, and sales professionals looking to make the move into the education recruitment industry.

We believe in paying exceptional people exceptionally well. Our starting salaries are above-market, and we offer a commission scheme in almost every position.

Paid time off:
This is a great place to come to work every day but getting away is important. That's why we offer 35 days (7 weeks) PLUS an additional 8 days of Public Holiday of paid vacation each year to new employees. Plus, we offer reduced hours for sales teams during all school holidays.

Your development matters:
We are proud of our culture of appointing internally for management roles. We believe that progression is determined by everyone.

Perks & stuff:
We've got a kitchen stocked with healthy food to keep us energised and focused (fruit, cereal). We celebrate our success: Annual Awards Ceremony in London, Annual Weekend Away for the whole company, Director's Dinner - three times per year, Christmas Party. And we're always taking suggestions on how to make this place even better.

If you are up for the challenge and want to join a progressive, energetic, and fast-growing business please contact Michelle today by sending your CV and covering letter to
