Trainee Recruitment Consultant - Graduate or Non-Grad

Blusource Accountancy Recruitment, a team with over 24 years’ service in the local marketplace and enviable customer base across the Midlands, are seeking to hire a Trainee Recruitment Consultant into a crucial job role, working in a genuinely market leading team and offering the following:

* Quick salary progression – With 2 promotion opportunities available within 12 months, you can quickly increase your basic salary and the commission structure is particularly generous, rewarding you directly for your work. Strong performance can realistically see you triple your starting salary within 18 months, when commission is included.
* Flexibility – Successful recruiters work hard, but with access to hybrid working (after an initial period), your own laptop and work phone, you can work flexibly and trust is given on how you manage the work around your life.
* Rewards and incentives – The team has previously embarked on a European trip for some winter sun, paid for by the company, plus regular social events, nights out, networking events and additional bonuses are offered for good performance.

* No KPI’s or cold sales – Your success is directly linked to your efforts and dedication, but we won’t demand specific KPI’s / activity numbers. Our experienced management team will show you the habits, behaviours and help you technically to reach your goals. One of the main differences between this recruitment job and most others is that, with an established client base and leading position in our field, there is no cold sales.

You will be rewarded for your efforts with a good basic salary, which will grow in the first few months as you hit milestones, plus a strong bonus package which should end up adding significantly to your basic package.


The Job:

You will initially work primarily to contact and liaise with job seekers or “candidates” in support to our recruitment consultants. After your probation and training, you will take on the full range of responsibilities for matching job and job seeker in a market within which Blusource Accountancy Recruitment are a market leader.

You can work flexibly, but recruitment is not a “9 to 5” job, as you will speak to customers outside of their working hours, with your dedication rewarded with career development and high earning opportunities through generous commission pay and strong progression on your basic salary. We tend to start relatively early in the morning, enabling us to speak to job applicants before they start work.

At Blusource, we pride ourselves on our long history in the marketplace and loyal client base. You will be busy and work hard, but have the chance of strong rewards at a much accelerated speed compared to other recruiters. The reward package has great potential for those who are dedicated and prepared to take ownership for their own success.


Person specification:

  • You will need to think commercially and work smart to be successful, but you will be focused mostly on finding the right applicants for the many jobs we already have, rather than making business development calls.
  • A graduate or graduate-calibre academically, you must have a sound academic base, be ambitious to further yourself and willing to put in the required dedication, as part of a client-focused team.
  • Your written English must be good, as you will write emails, job adverts and correspond regularly with clients and customers. Non-graduates will be considered, if they have transferable experience and the right characteristics for this position.
  • You must be an enthusiastic and confident communicator with a good overall IT competency and ability to re-prioritise your task list, depending on the needs of the business.
  • Personality wise, you do not have to be an “extrovert” or “salesy”, in fact a more considered approach is best suited to our client base. People who are focused, dedicated and happy talking to a range of people are likely to be successful.



* Strong bonus package / commission structure
* Service-focused role with minimal emphasis on sales targets (No KPI’s!)
* Events, socials, paid trips away and networking functions throughout the year
* Modern city centre offices with shower facilities and staff break-out/leisure room
* Flexible business with phone, laptop, and flexible hours
* Friendly, vibrant team with a great work environment
