Recruiting a Recruiter
Gleeson Recruitment Group - A Top 100 Best Small Company to Work for
Whilst we have not been allocated our final position in the prestigious list of Best Small Companies to Work for. We are thrilled with our three 2021 nominations.
Due to an extraordinary start to the year, and ongoing business expansion, we are looking for recruiters to be based (flexibly) from our Reading, Thames Valley office. All levels of experience will be considered to reinforce our existing highly successful and established team.
If you are hungry, innovative and keen to make a difference in a non KPI driven environment then this is an ideal time for you to join our business.
Our focus is within Accountancy & Finance recruitment but if you are an experienced recruiter from an alternative sector and looking for a grown up, network focused approach to contingent and campaign recruitment, we would love to talk to you.
Does this sound like you?
- A tactful and perceptive communicator who has a knack for finding the right balance between being personable and professional.
- Self-motivated and enthusiastic consultant with a passion for providing customer service excellence.
- Master of time management who has the pragmatism to balance a fast-paced, immersive, 360-role.
- A confident character with the tenacity to instigate, build upon and maintain relationships with new and existing clients.
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 - no cold calls, no unsolicited CVs and no beatings with the infamous KPI stick.
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 and determination - so long as you have the personality to fit in here and the hunger to succeed, we can teach you the rest.
What we want:
We have a range of opportunities available throughout the business; previous experience in a recruitment or sales environment is advantageous but not essential; all we ask is that you are a people person with a desire to succeed. Our consultants are all experienced recruiters with an enviable track record of client and candidate satisfaction. We are recognised externally by clients for our excellent service levels and internally by our passion for developing people, collaboration, family orientation, support and trust. Whether you are an experienced recruiter and craving a new challenge or a hungry graduate hoping to build a career - we have the expertise to get you there.
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!) to grow our brand and open up further accounts to the rest of Gleeson. We aim to obtain talented staff who embody the same values as we do, with a proven ability to build and maintain close relationships with both clients and candidates. In fact, we frequently work with our candidates throughout their careers.
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, plus non-financial benefits
- A 4.5-day 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, but once lockdown is lifted, we will resume our quarterly staff socials and 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. 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.
