After eight years of making their mark on the Midlands, Gleeson are ready to expand their current service offering with a branch that delivers a bespoke, all-encompassing, stress-free (for the client) form of recruitment. Drum roll please... introducing Gleeson Futures: a start-up RPO backed by the full force of Gleeson Recruitment Group. We have an unparalleled network across the Midlands and Thames Valley, 11 sector specialisms and several industry awards under our belt, giving us the knowledge and experience needed to hit the ground running. All we need now is a confident, creative and energetic individual to be part of the team.

The new RPO arm will offer immersive, individual and tailored talent solutions to both new and existing clients. We need you to be tenacious, with a keen eye for detail and a hunger for progression. With one live RPO client already under our wing and a number of client presentations scheduled, we need someone with the confidence to independently visit clients, attend network events, and market, present and sell the solution to potential partners. To be successful in this challenging but rewarding role, you will need a holistic understanding of marketing principles in addition to exceptional commercial acumen, leadership and organisational skills.

Identify new business opportunities with both current and new clients: building on existing relationships and mapping the market to generate leads, then creating, presenting and selling bespoke solutions to them.

Work alongside and report to the Managing Director: you will schedule and attend meetings with the MD in addition to creating tenders and making bids for projects of work together.

Have significant experience within an RPO / Talent Solutions role: a successful track record of building and maintaining a sales pipeline is essential.

This is a fantastic opportunity to be part of a dynamic and growing leadership team (even if we do say so ourselves). If you want to work for an ambitious start-up, where your contributions will directly affect the future growth and success of this business, this is the role for you.
