As we’re super-busy, we’re looking for a new member of the team to join us, to provide general support to the Recruitment Consultants.
What we do
What we do is a bit like ‘match making’ in the job world – we help people who are looking for a new job, find the perfect one for them. We do this by also working with company’s who are looking for people to join their team. And we put them together.
Each of our Recruitment Consultants work on jobs in different sectors. We work on jobs in Marketing, IT, Sales, Customer Service, Administration, Finance and more.
We’re looking for someone with a sparky personality, who has bags of enthusiasm too. You’ll need to share our values which are fundamentally about delivering an exceptionally high-quality service to everyone we work with.
It’s a varied role where no two days will be the same. Therefore, you’ll be someone who thrives in a busy and buzzy environment.
What you will be doing
Below is a list of things you’ll get involved with:
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
Arranging meetings and interviews: Setting up candidate registration meetings for the Consultants. Setting up meetings for people that companies would like to interview

This will include posting on social media and the company website, sending emails to customers, helping to put videos together, booking tickets for events, providing administration support to events that the Sarah West Recruitment team are hosting etc.
When things get super-busy, you’ll be the kind of person who is happy to lend a hand or ‘get stuck in’ with other things too.
As you get more experienced, you’ll be given the opportunity to take on more responsibility and broaden the work you do, if that’s something you’re keen to do.
Can meet a deadline
Sarah West Recruitment is an established and successful agency that was set up 12 years ago.
