Tradewind Recruitment are the leading Education Recruitment company in Preston and fast becoming one of the market leaders in the whole of the UK. As a result of this success, we are fast expanding and looking for Trainee Recruitment Consultants to join us and begin their journey, and continue ours, towards being the national leader within our field….we're nearly there already!

What does the role of a Trainee Recruitment Consultant (Recruitment Co-ordinator) look like at Tradewind Recruitment?

We pride ourselves on investing in the future of our industry, bringing through the next recruiters to service our clients to the highest possible standard. How do we do that? Through our internal Impact Academy.

The Impact Academy is a carefully curated programme that offers training in every capacity to give you all the tools needed to become a successful Recruitment Consultant via on the job learning and group training sessions from some of the best recruiters in the country. Initially a 9-12 month candidate facing role supporting a designated team in sourcing the best possible talent to work within our client schools.

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 focused around candidate registrations, utilisation and registration attendance.

- Earning commission for your hard work every step of the way.

Throughout your opening year you will be supported every step of the way to make your role a success via your team manager, your Academy lead and an in-team mentor made up of some of the most successful recruitment consultants in the whole of the Education Recruitment Sector.

Following a successful year supporting your sales team, you will be assigned a specially designated Sales Desk and as opposed to many competitors who simply leave you to a 'sink-or-swim' style of success, the training upon graduation only gets better. You will be provided with every tool needed to join the countless successful consultants who have graduated before you, such types of skills including;

-Business Development Training.

- Margin Negotiation.

-Visit impact training.

-Safeguarding training.

- Handling difficult conversations.

-Customer Service and Time Management.

…to name, but a few.

At Tradewind Recruitment, we appreciate that the role of a Recruitment Consultant can be demanding in any field, let alone one as important as Education supporting the future of the country, and it's for that reason the investment of the company into the Impact Academy really is second to none. As a result, so has the success been of those who have gone before you. Previous graduates from the Impact Academy have gone on to become top 10 consultants in the whole company within a year of sales; if this sounds like this could be an industry, and position, that would be of interest to you, then we are currently recruiting across a number of our London teams and would love to hear from you. Sales and Education experience is not a necessity (just an added bonus)-the success of the Academy is down to the individual consultant having a 'can-do' attitude and wanting to take a handle on their own future successes-if this sounds like you, then we'll be there to support you every step of the way.

Why else should I apply?

If the above description is not enough to make you tidy up your CV and get it across to us immediately (as we're recruiting to start tomorrow…) then hopefully the below added benefits may seal your interest;

- Market-leading salaries; starting with a £28,000 basic salary and realistic OTE of between £35 and £40k in your first year.
