You will be working for the UK team, who are well recognised in the North West as one of the leading IT recruitment companies. Since launching in late 2012, we have steadily grown each year and now work with many of the leading employers in the North West, London and Texas, USA.

You will be expected to work with existing clients and find new clients, develop a relationship, and spot the opportunities for us to grow with these clients within the market.

Youll be responsible for ensuring you fully understand your clients recruitment needs, making sure we provide the right services for them across all their tech-based recruitment placements.

The key goal for a Graduate Recruitment Consultant is to ensure that your clients whole heartedly trust your judgement on the right candidates for them, meaning that we would be their first port of call for all recruitment needs in the future. You must be in line with their business objectives, as well as being the voice of the client whilst talking to all potential candidates.

Sound good well are you the right fit for a Graduate Recruitment Consultant role?
Are you a goal driven, hardworking graduate with excellent stamina who is looking to make your first step on the career ladder?

We just want someone ambitious, focused and engaged individual who will thrive on the front line in our battle for the best IT talent.
