Have you recently been thinking about pursuing a career within Recruitment? The start of the process can be so mind-boggling when you know nothing about the industry. What makes a recruitment company good? Do they offer training? What will be expected of me? What is the team like?
Too many adverts do not answer these questions and just list the same “job responsibilities” but don’t actually give you a real insight into not only what you will be doing but the company and whether this is the right choice for you. Hopefully, this advert will give you a better idea of the role of a Recruitment Consultant.
Alexander Lloyd was formed 20 years ago and has built an incredible reputation within the market with clients, candidates and other recruiters alike. Due to an exciting growth plan for the next year, we are now looking for a Trainee Recruitment Consultant to join our Compliance & Risk team.
Tom Martin is a Divisional Manager here at Alexander Lloyd and he oversees the Compliance & Risk team. He boasts being one of our top billers in the business for many years running and is a fantastic example of what you can achieve within a business like ours. Here are a few words from Tom;
“I left University with a History degree, but with no desire to move into teaching, so after working in a couple of sales jobs within the construction and confectionary industries (yes, confectionary, as in chocolate, sweets etc. – actually not as fun selling these as you would think), I found myself at a loss of what career to try. I tried recruitment, and 9 years later I am still here! I started with no recruitment experience; in 9 years I have worked my way up into management, and now I manage 2 divisions and 8 staff. All of this wouldn’t have been possible without a bit of effort from me, and a huge amount of training, support, mentoring and guidance from the staff here! It truly is an engaging, collaborative, supportive office, where anyone can come in, work hard and truly succeed!”

Here at Alexander Lloyd, we believe personality fit is just as important as skillset and it is important that potential consultants know not just about the business but also about the team they could be joining. The team consists of 3 other consultants with a mix of backgrounds and experience. Here are a few words from one of their newer consultants Louis;
“I started my career in Recruitment working in the Industrial and Logistics market after having ascertained a small amount of Sales experience before. This was a very fast-paced, volume-based market which taught me the basics. I worked this market for around 18 months before I decided I wanted to become a better recruiter working for a professional services firm. I had heard about Alexander Lloyd through their good reputation in the market so got in touch with them and here I am!! The training was very insightful and taught me things I wouldn’t even have thought about before. They teach you how to do the basics, very well!! The training doesn’t stop there, I have a very experienced, hands-on manager who is a great mentor and always has the time to give me a helping hand, but at the same time gives me the autonomy to make my own business decisions. I haven’t looked back since joining Alexander Lloyd, the office is a very fun environment with genuinely nice people and I hope I have many years of success here. I would highly recommend Alexander Lloyd, both to experienced consultants but also those looking to take their first steps into recruitment. The call coaching with Sinitta is really good too!”
