We currently have an opportunity for an ambitious and motivated Recruitment Consultant to join our team in our Leamington Spa headquarters.
Fuel Recruitment is a specialist consultancy and pride ourselves on working in partnership with our clients to identify and contact the very best candidates in the market. Your work will cover the full lifecycle of the recruitment process, from initial contact with clients and identifying their staffing needs, through sourcing class-leading candidates to managing the placement of these individuals.
You work will focus on 3 key areas.
The business development element of the role involves winning new business (finding vacancies) to fill. Recruitment Consultants do this by a variety of methods including researching their client base, telephone sales (both to existing clients and new prospects that they have identified), networking, attending client meetings and more formal tender presentations. The telephone sales element of the role should not be underestimated. A big part of your time will be spent calling the companies within your chosen sector, finding out if they are hiring / how they normally go about hiring, selling them the benefits of the services Fuel offer and ultimately getting agreement to work with them to fulfil their recruitment needs.
A large part of any Recruitment Consultant’s day is spent identifying and shortlisting candidates for the roles they are working on. Depending on the specific role, you will employ a variety of methods including writing and posting job advertisements to attract talented candidates, searching the internal database of existing candidates, searching internet CV databases, social and business networking and head-hunting. Many candidates are spoken to at length about the vacancy, allowing the Recruitment Consultant to arrive at a shortlist of candidates whose CV’s will be sent to the client. Fuel Recruitment pride ourselves on the quality of our candidates and so spend a large amount of time gathering information on them to ensure they are the very best people in their respective fields.

This involves discussing the job requirement in detail with the client, preparing both the client and the candidates for interview, managing the interview process itself, negotiating with all parties around notice periods, start date, salary and fee, taking references and ID checks and keeping in contact with all parties throughout the process. Throughout this process the Recruitment Consultant is focused on building excellent relationships to ensure repeat business.
