Our Plymouth Branch is recruiting for the Commercial specialist department for a Sales Consultant who can drive growth for both temporary and permanent roles.
What is the job role?
You will be constantly interacting with people over the phone and face to face, in the pursuit of securing them new employment opportunities. This means constantly talking to work-seekers and employers in the local area, and helping the former find work with local businesses, and the latter hire new employees for their employment opportunities.
The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate strong Sales and Customer Service skills; as you will be expected to maintain and develop strong relationships with both current clients and work-seekers. You will also be sales driven and able to work to targets, in order to initiate new trading relationships with companies we don’t currently trade with.
You will pro-actively plan and implement recruitment strategies using online platforms, social media and local events to attract the best work seekers in the market, and work hard to find a new role for them. You will have a creative flair in order to at times “think outside the box” in order to attract new talent to your harder to fill roles.
Working as part of a team, you will have your own area, and be responsible for creating and owning your own business, and encouraged to have meetings with clients to help with this. You will strive to work directly with businesses bringing local talent to market, as well as equally supporting the top talent in the area to find them new jobs.
What attributes and skills will I need to have?
Excellent communication skills; you need to interact with a variety of different people at different levels, and be able to tailor your approach accordingly.
Writing skills; you will need to be able to write engaging and persuasive content for advertising placed on-line, as well as delivering informative and well-presented information about work seekers to clients.
Strong IT skills; everything you do has to be recorded, using MS word applications, and a CRM system.
Tenacious and driven; sometimes a work seeker might change their mind and not every employer is going to say yes to you; you must be able to continue to inform companies about your talented work seekers and not let these stop you from trying.
Personable; you need to be someone who gets along with others well in order to demonstrate your recruitment capabilities so they know you are doing a good job on behalf of them, whether they are work seekers or employers.
We offer a great basic salary plus uncapped commission, quarterly and monthly incentive schemes, and progression opportunities for the right people. If this sounds like you, then please send your CV as soon as possible to email@example.com
