Following the success of our business and growth plan, Fresh Recruits are pleased to announce that we are expanding our team and are looking for an experienced Senior Recruitment Consultant to join us on the next phase of our journey.

You need to be an experienced Recruitment Consultant to be considered for this role with previous experience in a Commercial Recruitment Agency and excellent knowledge of the local area.

Applications will be totally confidential and we can certainly speak or meet out of office hours if that is more convenient for you.

About us:

We use all of the major job boards, and have access to their candidate database's as well as a 100's of job credits with each one (Reed, Total Jobs, CV Library and Monster). I know we are one of the only agencies in Bournemouth who use all of the job boards, another big difference at Fresh Recruits is that each consultant has a dedicated Linkedin Recruiter licence which gives us the edge in finding those candidates who aren't on the job boards.

We don't work to KPI's and we're not targeted on new business so this isn't a sales role - we're very different to a lot of agencies in that respect. We have an extremely well established client base across both corporate and SME clients, hence the need for more Consultants, we need more hands on deck to service the steady stream of new vacancies that come in each week. Each consultant has a monthly revenue target to work too, and that's the extent of the targets, no micro management or call targets, we just focus on doing a good job, and our clients come back to us time and time again!

Have a look at our website: https://jobs/ and you can see the wide range of roles we recruit for, we share all of the vacancies and all of the candidates so you can resource and match on any vacancy - it's very much a team environment and we all have the same tools to work with so it's very fair.

Key Responsibilities:

??Building effective relationships with your candidates, understanding their needs and discussing relevant roles with them
