Gleeson Built Environment is a fast-growing division of Gleeson Recruitment Group and on the back of a 2nd record year running we are now looking to recruit a new Associate Recruitment Consultant into our AMAZING central Birmingham office! We work with some of the countries leading private sector organisations helping them find the best Property, Construction and Real Estate talent.

Who we are:

We are Gleeson Recruitment Group, and we pride ourselves in supporting ambitious individuals into reaching their full potential. We have invested in our office space, our tech and our staff to ensure that they have the tools, training and environment that they need to provide the best service possible for our clients and candidates. Our recruitment process is not a tick box exercise; we trust our teams to run their own desks.

In doing so, we have built a culture of empowerment and grown-up ideals that have led to Gleeson becoming the standard-bearer in modern multi-boutique style recruitment. We believe that there are two elements of a successful recruitment consultant that you simply can't force, and they are personality, determination and commitment - so long as you have the personality to fit in here and the hunger to succeed, we can teach you the rest.

Who you are:

So, what would make you a good fit for this role?

  • Well, a liking for meeting new people - and people skills in general - are a must. This is important as we focus on building and developing long-term relationships with our clients, and frequently work with our candidates throughout their careers.
  • The ideal candidate to become a recruitment consultant will have previous sales experience gained in a client-facing role - you might be an estate agent, business developer, salesperson… who knows?! It's what makes you, YOU that we are most interested in!
  • You'll need to have a willingness to learn, a high level of urgency/competitiveness and be a tenacious character. Great recruiters are hard-working, committed and driven (even when no one is watching).
  • You will be part of a growing team with great support and opportunity to progress as far as you have capacity to go.

We want our consultants to act as ambassadors for Gleeson, and part of this means giving the market a positive impression of us (and you!). As we want this impression to be genuine, we've been left with no choice but to create a working environment which is highly lively and enjoyable. We expect our offices will be to your liking (they are incredible)… as will the fact that we have a 4.5 day working week!

What do we offer?

Our clear progression structure provides every employee with the opportunity to excel and expand their current skill set, and we offer every member of staff the potential to earn a wealth of benefits including (but not limited to):

  • A competitive salary
  • A 4.5-day flexible working week
  • Additional holiday purchase
  • A laptop and a mobile phone allowance
  • Excellent commission scheme

As a business, we have always offered flexitime and working from home, with fun quarterly staff socials and exciting annual trips abroad!

This is an unparalleled opportunity to work with some of the best consultants in the industry, in a company that encourages support and development. You will be able to forge yourself a career where what you out in is relative to what you get out, be the master of your own destiny!

So, if you want to be a valued member of a small but growing team in one of the fastest-growing recruitment businesses in the region, apply today. This is your opportunity to give yourself the best chance of becoming a successful Recruitment Consultant.
