Trainee Recruitment Consultant/Account Manager - Shoreditch (London) - German Speakers

Cyber Security sector

Up to ??25,000 + commission (typically ??35,000-??40,000 in your first year)

The Company

Offices in both London (Shoreditch) and Brighton

They are looking for a German speaker to come onboard as a Trainee Recruitment Consultant for the German market.

Collectively, the business has over 35 years' experience

Focused on placing professionals within the Software/Cyber Security Space in the UK, USA and Europe (salaries range from ??50,000-??350,000)

Cyber Security professionals are in high demand at present, which means from a recruitment perspective, the earnings are incredibly high

Their biggest clients include: Forcepoint, BT, Symantec, Trendmicro, Oracle, McAfee, Fireeye, Checkpoint within the Cyber Security space.

They are trying to change the traditional recruitment model/service that they can offer clients, by offering a difference to the Trainee Recruitment Consultant approach, by adopting more of an Account Manager approach.

The majority of what they do is permanent placements where people can account manage house accounts

They offer a TaaS (Talent Acquisition as a Service) Model as their primary service - which has proven to save companies a great deal on their cost of hiring individuals through agencies

Adopted a different model, by offering their clients/house accounts a Trainee Recruitment Consultant that will work exclusively on their requirements and needs

The client pays a set amount, rather than a fee per placement, this company charges a certain amount upfront, which guarantees that Trainee Recruitment Consultant is more specialist, focused and exclusive with a client

The TaaS service shaves 75% off companies recruitment spend

The Trainee Recruitment Consultant will have the opportunity to go to meet with the client 1-2 times a week, and maybe work in their offices too, to get a sense of culture

The selling point of this model, is that clients within the Cyber Security space will save a tremendous amount of money

They are looking to grow to 20 staff in by Nov 2019

They are 3 strong in London at present, and 3 people in Brighton as it stands

??The company has several hot desks, where there are several house accounts that are ready to be worked on, therefore, this is such a lucrative business to work for, where you are almost guaranteed to earn commission, because of the demand of professionals within this Cyber Security space (In 2017, they had 194 projects going on)

??Extensive training from three Directors who all have different ways of working, they all have the same vision, however they can offer a Trainee Recruitment Consultant, three different variations of how to successfully recruit
