Brand New Offices in Edinburgh - Central Location
Your new company:
Lorien Resourcing is part of the Impellam Group (2nd Largest Staffing Company in the UK and 6th Largest Staffing Company Worldwide). We are market leaders in the IT Recruitment sector, with a wealth of proven experience in the industry (40+ years). We partner with some of the most prestigious corporate clients across the country and work with them at a strategic recruitment level.
Our CEO and Senior Management Team started off in this EXACT role you are reading about - A "Resourcer". We like to promote from within, Lorien is very much an organic company that like to promote employees based on your merits and achievements. You are well and truly in control of your earning potential and career prospects.
Imagine for one second working in a highly competitive arena such as IT Recruitment and not having to compete with any other agency on any of the vacancies you work on? Think about that?????? Sounds great doesn't it.
This vacancy is one of the best opportunities in the market at this level - working as a resourcer on our corporate accounts doesn't mean cold calling to generate new business, it means you will be servicing our existing clients and delivering the right candidates, with the right skills for the right job on all the clients' requirements. You will have a real focus on; working with the candidate market place while getting to know your client 100%.
Lorien (as an exclusive supplier) need to exceed our client's expectations and fill all their recruitment needs. You will be working multiple roles at any one time and need to be able to spin many different plates at any one time and multi task. As I mentioned - you are NOT in competition with any other agencies as Lorien are exclusive suppliers to these clients, meaning high volume, live roles for you to work on from day one.
The whole reason why we are recruiting is because he have experienced a significant increase in new requirements from our clients which means we physically need more hands on deck to assist and deliver. Think about that too - This is a HOT desk where the vacancies come to you! ZERO "cold calling" to clients required as you are working with clients that Lorien are already preferred suppliers too.
Your new role:
The role of a Recruitment Resourcer / Trainee Recruiter is demanding and a highly rewarding customer focused sales role. We will give you all the tools and resources to get the very best results. We need too, to keep Lorien and you ahead of the competition. Close your eyes and visualise yourself doing the following:
* Receive job specs and liaise with Recruitment Manager
* Ensure you possess a good understanding of the business need
* Advertise vacancies and manager candidate responses
* Actively resource suitable candidates
* Manage the whole process on the candidate side through to offer and placement stage
What you need to bring with you:
First of all you need to be able to multi task and prioritise. You will be busy, working on multiple roles from our clients at any one time. Ideally (but not essential) you will be of degree calibre or equivalent, someone who is self- motivated and able to work on their own initiative. For this vacancy it is also important you are naturally persuasive, resilient, have excellent customer service skills, can work in a team and have strong communications skills as you will be communicating with managers, directors and candidates at all levels.
This is NOT an entry level opportunity in to employment; you need to have some commercial experience in similar working environments to be considered for this opportunity. We believe that someone from a "call centre" or "customer service" or "high-level complaints" or "telesales" or "B2B / B2C" type backgrounds would have some of the transferable skills required for this opportunity.
The successful candidate will receive the best training in the industry. You will be joining a company that promotes candidates purely based on your results, a meritocracy. As explained, our Directors and senior management team all started off as a resourcer.
What you will get in return:

Plenty of incentives to aim for, with trips to Dubai, Cape Town, Ibiza, New York and Las Vegas are some destinations to name a few.
