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 from 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 Pensions and Benefits team.
Tom Martin is a Divisional Manager here at Alexander Lloyd and he oversees the Pensions & Benefits 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!"
Sounds interesting so far? Then read on…

Yvette; "I finally took the plunge to try something completely different and out of my comfort zone, I know a few recruiters within the industry and saw how successful they've become; so I wanted to try and see for myself. After joining Alexander Lloyd 5 months ago it's exceeded my expectations thus far; from the training academy, mentoring and guidance offered it's been a great start so far, having done 7 placements within 5 months everyone has been nothing but supportive and cheered me on."
