Recruitment process

To succeed in recruitment you need to be confident and resilient, with excellent communication skills. Our five stage recruitment process is designed to showcase your strengths and help us determine your suitability for the role.

Stage 1

All applicants will be required to complete our short online application form. This is your opportunity to tell us why you would be perfect for our Graduate Development Programme. Don’t forget to proof read your answers; attention to detail is a key requirement.

Stage 2

Confidence on the telephone is vital to becoming a successful recruitment consultant. Applicants who pass stage 1 will be invited to the second stage which consists of a telephone interview with a member of the management team.

Stage 3

Applicants who impress during their telephone interview will progress to stage 3. This stage consists of a sales focused telephone role play with a member of our team. We understand that this scenario may be new but we will be judging how you handle yourself in an unfamiliar situation. You will be given a brief beforehand and time to prepare so you don’t need to worry.

Stage 4

Stage 4 consists of a group assessment day with a variety of different tasks and exercises including:

  • An ice breaker
  • A group exercise that will test your ability to think on your feet, your team work, communication and problem solving skills
  • A presentation
  • An aptitude/psychometric test

Stage 5

The final stage of the application process is a face to face interview. As part of the interview you will be invited to shadow one of our team. This will give you the opportunity to experience the company culture first hand and fully understand the role of a recruitment consultant.
