A FTSE 250 company is now looking for the very best recent graduates to join their firm in sourcing senior management level personnel across the city of London. Whether you have worked, travelled or done a work placement since graduating, this is your chance to hit the ground running in 2014 and start a career working in the very heart of the city for one of the most successful companies in the financial sector. Their track record speaks for itself – they have won an industry award every year without fail since 2000.
Set up on the 17-19th floors of a high-rise in the heart of the city, this firm work with all the very top banks, wealth management, practices and hedge funds. If you want to come into contact with the most powerful makers and shakers in the financial sector then this is the firm to work for. Whether it be CEOs, Directors, Managers or team leaders, this firm interact with the very top personnel. And by the ‘firm’ then that means YOU.
Set on a vibrant floor, the company is split into smaller teams, each specialising in their own specific niche market. This allows each team to build a rapport with each individual client based on extensive knowledge of the sector. As a graduate you will of course not be expected to begin your career with this knowledge, but it is expertise knowledge that will be passed to you from both your team leader and the other consultants around you on your team.
It is this flow of knowledge that sets this company apart from their competitors and this all stems from the training the graduates receive. The first three months consist of continuous training across all aspects of the recruitment cycle. From calling clients, how to find the best candidates, how to lead an interview through to how to close a deal, these are skills that will set you up for your entire career. Rather than this being taught in a class room, this is all teaching that comes on the job, a senior manager guiding you through your first calls, contracts and deals but for real rather than just doing role play scenarios. This means that all graduates have the best platform off which to be hugely successful and receive some of the rewards on offer.
Consultants can receive commission from day one, whether it be for bringing in new clients or for placing candidates. With a basic salary of Â£23,000, this commission structure inflates your wage up to Â£40,000 or Â£50,000 for the very best consultants. Within this company the directors expect all their consultants to be earning over Â£100,000 by their third year – a reflection of your increased knowledge, database, confidence and crucially your growing network of candidates and clients.
Other short term rewards include a monthly diners club at a Michelin stared restaurant, car targets, and a yearly holiday target – One team have just got back from a week all expenses paid for in Las Vegas.
This is not just another generic job, this is the chance for a top graduate to begin a career that can see them not only earn well, but also progressive quickly, based not on your age or experience but rather simply on your ability.
If you are a recent graduate with an exceptional work ethic, huge drive and a history of being successful both at university and in the workplace then this is the position for you.
