About Our Client

This recruitment firm as a solid reputation within the world of IT and Digital Recruitment, working with clients across the UK including London. With a dynamic culture this organisation is far from a dull environment with some big characters and an enjoyable social atmosphere, however with an underlying theme of disciplined professionalism necessary to consistently deliver to their customers.

Roles & Responsibilities

Most people get into the office between 8:00 and 8:30 and begin the day checking new emails, hoping that a star candidate has applied overnight. If they have it’s straight on the phone to them – chances are they’ve applied to our competitors too and we need to get to them first!

By 9:15 we’re on the phone to clients, pitching for new business or discussing CV’s we’ve sent them. This is great and you can really use your communication and influencing skills. Sales ability is key to this job and you need to be on the phone building rapport with clients and candidates.

No two days are the same, by 10:30 it’s likely something will have come up to change the course of your day, either you’ve pulled a new vacancy to work on or had a call back from a candidate whose CV you need to get across to a client ASAP.

When you have urgent roles to fill with good commission potential there’s little temptation to waste time stuffing your face. But everybody needs lunch and it’s good to get away from your desk and recharge your batteries for a bit. There’s plenty of shopping nearby and a nice riverside pub/restaurant within 2 minutes’ walk, or maybe you’ll just chill out with your colleagues in the recreational area.

By 14:00 you’re back at your desk and on the phone briefing candidates, arranging interviews, speaking to clients about interview feedback and chasing up leads. By 15:30 you’ve received an amazing looking CV, you call the candidate, find out what they’re looking for and you’re straight on the phone to some clients marketing out the CV, working to get the candidate the best opportunity before your competitors do.

At 16:45 a client calls to book an interview. You brief the candidate and prepare them a full interview confirmation email. Proper candidate briefing is essential, your role is to help them get the job so you must give them as much information as possible. After this it’s time to use your literary skills to draw up some job advertisements and post them onto the internet – the better you do here the more response you’ll get – nobody’s going to apply to an advert which looks rubbish!

Candidates are leaving work from 17:00 onwards, so you start calling them to discuss their careers, see how you can help them and find out what’s happening in the IT market. You have to keep your IT sector knowledge up to date and know which companies are hiring and firing, who better to ask than the people being hired and fired? Hopefully you’ll speak to some good new candidates and be able to start representing them for opportunities tomorrow.

18:00 comes and goes and you’re still in the zone. You’ve just got time to scour a few online databases for CV’s to call later in the evening. Before you know it it’s 18:30 and your manager’s asking if you don’t have a home to go to…
