About this Apprenticeship

Ever thought of getting a job as a Recruitment Consultant due to your drive and ambition and been put off having heard horror stories of working 24 hours a day, with extreme KPIs and being screamed at to get on the phone at any waking moment?

Maybe you re even currently living that nightmare, being held captive in an office until you get a set number of CVs out to a role, dictated by someone who has no idea about your desk or its challenges.

Do you want to leave the office at a reasonable time, be supported and understood and fairly rewarded for your hard work? Not all recruitment companies work this way.

Here at Hernshead, we take your career as a Recruitment Consultant seriously whilst enjoying a relaxed and mature environment with all of the incentives and rewards but none of the call number targets and cutthroat reputation. We don t believe in micromanagement or ridiculous and pointless KPIs, just process, guidance and results.

Hernshead is an Engineering & Technology recruitment agency owned by experienced recruiter Tom Johnson & Lord Sugar.

Having had a strong first 4 years in business and after a move into a new office we are looking to grow our team with the addition of a new Recruitment Consultant. In a short time we ve already become established in a number of markets such as Controls & Automation, Special Purpose Machinery, Technology Design, Automotive, Additive Manufacturing & Aerospace and we re now growing into new areas, led by client relationships.

Ideally, we re seeking someone who is keen to get into the Recruitment industry and be given a full training plan to progress up the career path of a Recruitment Consultant. You'll ideally have some sales experience, perhaps having worked in Estate Agency, within a Call Centre or within another sales focussed environment. Alternatively, you could have had a taste of recruitment and know you ll succeed much better in a supportive and mature environment (and want to get home in time for dinner each evening).

You ll enjoy speaking with people, be comfortable speaking on the phone and be a self-motivated individual with a real desire to succeed as this role will allow you to hit the ground running on your own desk where you will need to be resilient, excited to get on the phone and be in control of your own earnings and success. An interest in Engineering and/or Technology would be beneficial.

• Generous basic salary With clear promotion objectives and progression

• Full Microsoft Surface Pro Set up Wireless Keyboards, Mouse and Headsets for ultimate comfort
