The Role

As a recruitment consultant, you are an intermediary between companies looking to recruit (clients) and people seeking a new career (candidates). Primarily a sales role, a career in recruitment can offer high rewards and quick results. It's a clich??, but there really is no typical day in recruitment. You will be speaking to clients and candidates on a daily basis, matching CVs and people to jobs. You will be meeting clients, networking, using social media and job boards and managing candidates throughout the recruitment process. If you want a challenging career with fantastic rewards with genuine career potential, recruitment might just be for you!

The Person

To be successful in recruitment you must be driven by success. You will need to be a confident, determined person and have excellent communication skills. You must be able to thrive in a lively, sociable and competitive working environment and be motivated by career potential. With us, you control your earnings - the harder you work, the more money you can earn.

The Earning Potential, Benefits and Rewards

You will earn a basic salary and uncapped commission from day one. Your year one OTE (On Target Earnings) will be between ??35,000 - ??50,000.

The Training

You will join our Recruitment Fundamentals training academy, a training programme overseen by our Sales Development team. In this, you will receive a mixture of online, classroom and on-the-job training whilst having the support of our Sales Development Manager who will help you make the transition from Trainee to Consultant.

You will receive "masterclasses" from experienced consultants on all aspects of the recruitment process and as you develop your career, the training opportunities will continue with external trainers and industry specialists.

Investors in People and ISO accredited, we firmly believe that having the best people in our organisation means that we provide our customers with the best possible service.

The Career Progression

GCS operates a meritocracy. This is not a workplace where the only people that receive promotions are the ones that have been here for a long period of time. However, the vast majority of our management team are 'home-grown' and started their careers in our academy straight from College or University but have gone on to bill millions of pounds. They are proof that you can build and maintain a successful career at GCS. We are looking for individuals that want to fast-track their career and are capable of quickly hitting and exceeding their targets.

The career path can look like this:

Trainee Consultant

Junior Consultant


Senior Consultant

Principal Consultant

Team Leader

Business Manager


Friendly, fun, rewarding - there are lots of ways you could describe the GCS culture. But really, it's all about celebrating success. We like to celebrate success at every opportunity. Regardless of your role or level in the business there are team and individual milestones for you to hit to give us another reason to celebrate success.

First deal champagne, on-track bonus, breakfast clubs, down tools targets, promotion lunches, high achievers lunches, quarterly awards, annual awards and our spectacular May Ball are just some of the ways in which we celebrate success. Join GCS and give us the opportunity to celebrate your success!
