A recruitment consultant at Thorpe Molloy Recruitment will work, as an equal business partner, with our clients, building relationships in order to gain a better understanding of their recruitment needs and requirements. You will be tasked with attracting candidates by advertising in a wide range of media, as well as by networking and through candidate and client referrals. You will also assume responsibility for screening candidates via a thorough pre-registration and interview process with the aim of matching candidates to the most suitable employer and specific vacancy. This would be a priority of any consultant and a key measure of success is ensuring that both the job seeker and employer expectations are met, and often exceeded, from the start to the end of the process. Naturally, you would be required to effectively communicate with a range of employers and individuals, understanding what they are looking for and presenting an appropriate solution.
Through a rigorous training programme, consultants are expected to become a specialist in their field, generating alternative ideas for clients and candidates in order to maximize placement opportunities. Advice offered would also include information on market salary levels, training requirements and career opportunities.

Training & Opportunities for Development
We place the training and development of our staff as a key business priority. Upon joining you automatically commence our in-house training programmes lasting up to 12 weeks. This programme will include on-the-job training and in conjunction, internal courses run by the Senior Operations Manager and the HR & Training Manager.
Training needs and development are continually appraised as part of a Consultants assessment and further external and internal training opportunities exist where appropriate.
There are genuine development opportunities for consultants within their own field or should their interests or expertise lie in a specific area, it is possible to transfer your skills into one of the other specialist disciplines as has been evidenced by existing members of staff.
With experience, a defined promotion structure offers opportunities to move into business development or management.
Culturally we look to create both a productive and enjoyable environment to allow staff to thrive and the ‘fun factor’ is viewed as an essential part of every day. Consultants are expected to possess a strong work ethic and this is generously rewarded through additional incentives over and above remuneration. In addition to a competitive remuneration and benefits package (including uncapped commission levels) we offer a flexi-working scheme whereby consultants are entitled to time off in lieu. From Monday to Friday, the standard working hours are 8:30am to 5.30pm with one hour for lunch. Through promotion and service loyalty holiday entitlement can reach a maximum of 39 days (31 plus 8 statutory). Your work would be mainly office based however, once experienced your weekly remit would involve travel to visit employers using the company car fleet and therefore a driving licence would be beneficial.
A recruitment consultant will respond to you within 3 working days of your interest being noted.
