      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.

      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
      • General administration: This will include making sure that the team have the right documentation in place for all the customers we’re working with
      • Marketing: Provide support for the organisation’s marketing activities. 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.

      You’ll get to work in a great office with a fun, happy, team and be based at Dart’s Farm.

      There are some exciting plans for 2020 and beyond and we’re excited to welcome our new team member to help with and enjoy our journey along the way!

      £22k – £25k + monthly bonus 

      This organisation is looking for a new, experienced Project Coordinator/Senior Administrator to join their team. Due to the industry they work in, it’s important that as well as doing a fantastic job of the role itself, you’ll be someone who has a naturally caring personality and gets satisfaction from helping people too.

      This Project Coordinator role will sit within the architectural team and you’ll work on projects once a build has been approved, through the construction/build phase and co-ordinate the handover with the customer. A big part of that will naturally be to make sure that timescales, budget and processes are being adhered to. In this role you may also find yourself involved with the initial research – to identify suitable properties or land that will fit the needs of the client.

      As an experienced Project Coordinator, you’ll be used to obstacles cropping up along the way and coming with ideas as to how you can get over them too – often working with other teams and contractors to do this. You’ll work hand-in-hand with the client to help them to understand what the options are in order for the project to progress and feedback the outcome of that discussion to the other teams.

      Each project is bespoke and therefore you’ll be someone who thrives on juggling lots of different projects that are all at different stages and of different complexities. This organisation currently uses Excel to track a project’s progress and although it’s not a complex system, having a working knowledge of Excel already, would be ideal.

      Key tasks for the Project Coordinator will include:

      • Research – identifying potentially suitable properties and/or land, viewing and making recommendations
      • Document management
      • Supplier and contractor management
      • Client management – face to face and over the phone etc
      • Progress reporting – to internal and external teams and flagging any potential risks
      • Problem solving
      • Client support

      The skills and experience we’re looking for:

      • First class communication
      • Super-organised
      • Huge attention to detail
      • Someone professional but with a warm and caring side to their personality

      The role will be based in this company’s Newton Abbot office however the nature of the role will see you out about on site and client visits too however these are expected to be pretty local.

      This is a fast-paced environment however the work itself is hugely rewarding and genuinely changes lives for the better.

      If the above sounds like you and you are wanting a role that you will get a lot out of – both personally and job wise, get in touch with Lisa!

      This is a brand-new role working for a hugely well-established and growing manufacturing company who are looking for a new addition to join their growing team. They’re looking for someone with A-Level standard qualifications as a minimum.  However, if you have a degree, that would be an added bonus.

      Experience wise, you will receive full training and be fully supported by the existing buying team.   We are looking for someone who has wonderful Excel skills (V-Lookup, pivot tables) a quick learner and confident.  Essentially, you’ll be able to hit the ground running, early on.

      As Buyer, you’ll be hugely involved with the organisation’s procurement decisions around the raw materials they source to produce their products. Significant budgets are involved annually and you’ll be given your own individual sign-off responsibility too.

      • Research products and recommend which companies the organisation should use as their suppliers

You want to be the person they tell first about new products/materials they’ve got in the pipeline too.

      The organisation is becoming more data-driven and procurement decisions you make will be driven by the facts and figures. Therefore, you’ll be someone who can analyse data, identify trends or changes in the market and communicate this to the wider team. You may also get involved with communicating this information to others in the organisation – including the senior management team.

      Throughout the production process you’ll be analysing where improvements can be made.  This could be through costs savings, the product’s design or how its manufactured. You’ll also benchmark suppliers on a regular basis, identifying and flagging where there may be risks.

      What will you be like, and what skills and experience will you have?

      • Hugely organised
