What you’ll be doing
You’ll be working as part of a team that lives and breathes their specialist sector and is constantly seeking to develop their reputation as trusted experts. Overseen by a sector lead the team is made up of people responsible for business development, management of assignments and searching for perfect candidates. The latter would be your job.
Main responsibilities:

  • Engaging with potential candidates via telephone or face to face and finding out their suitability for roles

  • Developing your team’s network by attending industry events and client meetings.

What we’re looking for

  • Fascinated in getting to know the characters in our sectors; what they do, what makes them tick, what their aspirations are
  • Intrigued about the intricacies of our markets; how they work, what the key challenges are. Constantly looking to learn more
  • Slick in your personal organisation; able to juggle many simultaneous discussion with contacts in a way that shows consideration to all
  • Relaxed at reaching out to new potential contacts  
  • Engaging in your manner - whether that’s by phone or face-to-face
  • Resilient in handling the inevitable challenges that need overcoming if great things are to be achieved
  • Tenacious in working towards becoming an invaluable team member
  • Natural at asking for and providing support to and from colleagues  
  • Enterprising when it comes to finding new ways to do things

You’ll have a solid academic background (probably a degree, but you’ll certainly graduate calibre) and at least a few years of work experience during which you’ve had the change to demonstrate many of the traits above.  
We welcome applicants based within a 20 mile radius of Knutsford.
