Your new company
Hays is the most successful specialist recruitment company in the U.K, placing more than one candidate into a new job every minute of every business day. We've been voted the best recruitment company to work for in the U.K. by Glassdoor, Rate My Placement & JobCrowd and we're the most followed recruitment company globally on LinkedIn.

Our Cheltenham office has recently launched into the Technology market on the back of 7 years of year on year growth. We currently have one of the leading professional services teams who are the go to agency within Gloucestershire and Herefordshire. Within professional services, we already have an outstanding reputation in the market place. Due to this, the Hays Technology team is looking to expand to cope with the high demand of Technology recruitment within the area.

Your new role
Recruitment is fast–paced and dynamic, every day you'll make a lasting impact. As a Recruitment Consultant, you'll source candidates and win business from clients and match the right candidate to the right job to make fees. It's hard work as you'll have to hit both sales and activity targets (and we have high expectations here at Hays) but a career in recruitment is extremely rewarding.

What you'll need to succeed
There's not one typical person that makes a good Recruitment Consultant. We've got people from all kinds of backgrounds – graduates, non–graduates, sales professionals, retailers, ex–tradespeople, people from hospitality or real estate and we don't need you to have previous recruitment experience.

To succeed in recruitment, you'll need to demonstrate that you're sales driven, results–focused, and possess an ambitious drive to succeed. Recruitment is hard work and it takes time and perseverance to achieve results, so resilience, persistence and determination is key. You need to be passionate about sales, people–focused, outgoing and confident.

What you'll get in return
As a Recruitment Consultant at Hays, you'll run your own business but be given the support of our market–leading brand, receive world–class training to help you become a recruiting expert and have access to the best tools and technology in the industry.

You'll also receive:

  • A competitive base salary
  • Uncapped commission
  • Incentives and rewards

We also have a range of generous employee benefits to choose from including:

  • Discounted gym membership
  • Healthcare and dental care plans
  • The ability to buy extra holidays
  • Generous shopping discounts and savings

We operate a meritocratic culture where you are rewarded and recognised based on your results, the chance to get promoted at six months (with an increase to your base at that time) and high performing individuals can be fast–tracked into management roles within a few years, as well as the chance to relocate to different parts of the UK or around the world. It's hard work and we expect excellence but if you deliver the results your earning potential and career progression knows no limits.
