Graduate Recruitment Consultant

Discovery ADR Group

£22,000 + OTE £12,000

Redditch, West Midlands

The Company

Established for 22 years and experts in Graduate Recruitment.  We operate across the whole of the UK and Internationally. We work with Globally recognised businesses and smaller SME’s. We are an ILM Approved Trainer so we don’t just place Graduates into new roles, we can train them afterwards too.

The Discovery Team are a carefully selected bunch – not typical recruitment salespeople or a numbers-based training provider. We’re businesspeople and we all want our clients’ businesses to succeed.

We aim to embed best practice recruitment and training into businesses by providing cutting edge tools, techniques and approaches which shape the global business landscape.

Main Purpose of the Role

Sitting in the Graduate Recruitment Division, you’ll first get an in-depth understanding of what world class recruitment looks and feels like. In your first 6 months, you’ll be involved in engaging with candidates, conducting interviews, running assessment centres, and attending client meetings.

Following your 6 months of gaining a good understanding of the graduate recruitment market, and our processes, you’ll become a Sales Professional, where you’ll be expected to become a fully-fledged sales professional, where you’ll look to create, develop, and grow new and existing business relationships to solve our client’s graduate recruitment challenges, by taking a consultative approach.

The Role

The recruitment process is typically done in 2 halves – Business Development is one part of the role and then servicing the client and filling the vacancy is the 2nd half. When you first join Discovery, we will expose you to the Client Servicing side for your first 6 months so you can learn our business, become an expert in Graduate Recruitment, be exposed to conducting telephone interviews, video interview screening, become a competent assessment centre facilitator and build and develop candidate relationships.

We will drip feed Sales Training into this first 6 months so you can then move into the business development side of the role whereby you will be generating new business leads, spot opportunities to win, create and attend client meetings, engage with clients during on-going projects, ensure that you’re the go-to person in the sales team for your client’s needs, cold calling businesses, become a LinkedIn expert, able to understand the clients’ challenges before presenting a solution.

The Individual

Sales is one of the most exciting areas of business, but this position isn’t for the faint hearted. You’ll need to be naturally resilient, personable, inquisitive, and curious. You should be genuinely interested in business and how to solve problems for our clients.

You will use your rapport building skills to cultivate strong client relationships and spot opportunities.  You must be target driven and motivated to win new business, whilst living through our very strong core values that place our clients at the heart of our business.

We’re also looking for the following:

  • A determined individual who can demonstrate resilience
  • A good communicator with excellent listening skills
  • Tenacity, dedication, capability and adaptability
  • Ideally degree educated or of Graduate Calibre
  • We are interested to speak to candidates who have had exposure to the sales world in either a Telesales Environment or B2B Sales
