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 HR team.
Simon Geere is an Associate Director here and heads up our extremely successful HR team. He joined the business 15 years ago after working within Training in the travel industry and then made the switch to recruitment. Here are a few words from Simon Geere;
"As an experienced recruitment professional, I have been working in the specialist Human Resources market for over 15 years across the South East of the UK. I like to build strong relationships with HR professionals, and would describe my approach to resourcing as "reassuringly traditional"; I like to meet and understand the HR population that I work with, and insist on taking a full face to face brief with all of the clients I engage with in order to ensure I have grasped all of the cultural nuances of the business."
This means if you are keen to have a role that doesn't just require you sitting at your desk and staring at a screen all day then our HR team would be a great choice for you as they are constantly out and about meeting clients and candidates. Our HR teamwork with some of the biggest organisations in the area plus some fantastic smaller local businesses.
Here at Alexander Lloyd we believe person fit is just as important as skill set and it is important that potential consultants know not just about the business but also about the team they could be joining. Simon is joined by two other Recruitment Consultants in the team Lauren and Theo. Here are a few words from Lauren who joined us on our Training Academy;
Lauren; "Having worked as an Estate Agent for 5 years I decided I wanted a new venture and came to Alexander Lloyd. I joined back in April 2018 on the Training Academy which was brilliant!
