As a Trainee Recruitment Resourcer, you will provide full support to the consultants.

You will start off supporting the team, and you will learn all about recruitment from the bottom up. You will be answering the phone, and also will be busy speaking to candidates about what job they are looking for, and going through job boards looking at ideal CVs.

Compass Resourcing work within the construction, engineering, and technical sectors. So they are looking for a fairly bold and outgoing person who can hold their own in this enviornment. This industry is much better suited to confident personalities, so if you prefer back office administration, this is probably not quite the right role for you.

They are looking for someone who enjoys being on the phone, interracting with a wide range of new poeple, as this will be a large part of the job.

In return for your hard work you will be paid a basic salary of £150 per week to start with. This should rise with successful performance, and should hopefully lead you on to a high earning career further down the line.

The main day to day duties will be:

  • Answering calls
  • Data entry
  • Invoicing
  • Finance
  • Taking messages
  • Making searches on job boards such as Indeed, LinkedIn, CV library
  • Sorting through CVs for consultants
