** This is a Kickstart placement opportunity with Sarah West Recruitment. To qualify for the role, you must be aged between 16 and 24, be currently unemployed and on Universal Credit, working with a DWP Work Coach.**
This is a brand-new role that will see you provide support for one of our super busy recruitment consultants. As well as giving you the opportunity to develop some key recruitment skills, you’ll also get to know and understand how the process/industry works, inside out.
Your role will include sourcing candidates (by carrying out searches on online job boards for example), arranging meetings and interviews and general administration – for example making sure that all the right documentation is in place for everyone we’re working with.
While you’ll be completely supported and trained as we get you up to speed, we’re looking for someone who’s able to work independently too. As you get more experienced, you’ll have the opportunity to take on more responsibility and broaden your remit, if that’s something you’d like to do.
You’ll need to be a people person through and through, to fit in with our team, have a sparky personality, come with bags of enthusiasm and share our values, which are all about doing everything we do – super-well.
What will you be doing?
Candidate sourcing: Help the recruitment consultants find people with the right skills and experience for the jobs they are working on (by carrying out searches on online job boards, on LinkedIn and other sites).
Research: Using our recruitment system, you’ll carry out searches to come up with ‘long lists’ of people that might be a good match for jobs that the team is working on. You’ll also help to seek out companies who are recruiting that the recruitment consultants could potentially help with.
Arranging meetings and interviews: Setting up candidate registration meetings for the consultants. Setting up meetings for people that companies would like to interview.
General administration: This will include making sure that the team have the right documentation in place for all the customers we’re working with.
Person-wise you'll be someone with excellent communication skills, a brilliant eye for detail, who's confident and organised. While you’ll of course be fully supported in this role, you’ll be happy to work independently too
