Recruitment Consultant – Sutton Coldfield

Are you an experienced Recruiter or Salesperson, who perhaps loves what you do, but not where you do it?  Does specialist and niche interest you more than big and generalist?  Would you be inspired by, working with highly knowledgeable colleagues who could make you better at your job? If this has piqued your interest, please read on, as our two current vacancies may be of interest.

A common question I receive is, do I need experience?  There’s no doubt that it can be an advantage, particularly at first, but it’s your attitude to sales, and how you would build a successful long-term business, coupled with an openness to develop which is more important than experience.  If you possess these attributes, then you would do well here, just as others have, in some cases for 20 years.

With Probe, it’s not so much what you do, but how you do it that’s important.  Our Consultants are relationship builders rather than archetypal Salespeople.  They work with clients to help resolve a problem, rather than see a client as an opportunity to make a quick buck.  They understand that if they do the right things by their clients, those relationships should look after them in the future.

But this is of course a sales role, and there would be targets, but you would be supported to achieve those targets, and you would enjoy all of the normal trappings of working within an established recruitment consultancy of nearly 30 years, such as an outstanding commission scheme, a structured career pathway, incentives, and working with an amazing team.

If you have some recruitment or sales experience, ideally within a technical field, and would like to find out whether we could be a good fit for you, then please contact Andy Davies directly – andy.davies@probejobs.co.uk / 0121 321 4311.
