About this Apprenticeship

We are a successful and rapidly expanding recruitment business in Horsforth, North Leeds, looking for Apprentice Recruitment Consultants. We have been continuously trading for over twenty years with a year-on-year compound growth rate of over 40% in the last three years. We are staffed by experts with decades of experience to pass on to the next generation of professional recruiters. We have a positive culture and long established 'tried and tested' apprentice training programme. Several of our current successful consultants started with us as apprentices. Past apprentices continue to have successful careers with great earnings on the back of Futures' Apprentice Recruitment Consultant training programme.

As an Apprentice Recruitment Consultant your role will be varied on a day to day basis. There will be face-to-face meetings as you progress but in the initial stages the role is predominantly phone based. You will deal with clients (companies that are looking for staff and want you to find them a new employee) and candidates (people who are looking for a new position to progress their career and want you to find them a new job) and learn how to match the right candidate with the right client to make both sides happy.

An Apprentice Recruitment Consultant works closely with one of our experienced consultants so they can give you the skills you'll need to succeed. There will be classroom based seminars and work groups leading to a professional qualification combined with on-the-job practical experience. You will be given all the support needed to be successful in a positive atmosphere. We are a business of nice people who enjoy seeing our apprentices do well. We give the opportunity to earn commission from your first month with the company in addition to your basic salary of £4 per hour. We also understand everyone moves at their own pace and take the long term view of your development. As an apprentice your role is to learn so you can contribute in the future. There is no pressure for instant results, what we ask for is effort alongside a positive attitude and a willingness to learn. Everything else we'll provide. If you keep your side of the bargain you'll quickly build a career with regular salary increases and uncapped earning potential.

Day to day activity for an Apprentice Recruitment Consultant include client research, administrative tasks, calling new clients, helping to arrange visits for consultants, and interviewing candidates. You'll spend your time learning how to know exactly what clients want (the people wanting to hire someone) and exactly what candidates want (the people interested in a new role) so you can present the right person for each role you work on.

Over your training programme you'll be introduced to all activities conducted by an experienced consultant. You'll have it explained in a classroom environment, have role play and dummy test runs, get supervised on-the-job training when you try it "for real" and finally be signed off as competent to fulfill that part of the role unaided. As your training progresses you will gradually take on more responsibility, be signed off as competent for more and more aspects of the role, until your apprenticeship finishes and you are a fully fledged Recruitment Consultant.
