The finer details...

Being a resourcer is usually a Monday to Friday role, 9am – 5.30pm. However, you will be required to be flexible and to go the extra mile for our clients.

There are thousands of recruitment agencies in the United Kingdom. And they all deal with different industries and specialisms in the job market.

Woodrow Mercer specialises in interim and permanent recruitment within IT, Public Sector and Senior Management.

With experience, and extensive training, the potential to move up the career ladder at Woodrow Mercer is great and can be very rapid. Promotion into a consultancy, business development or management role is a real possibility - especially if you're consistently delivering, or exceeding, targets and making a big impression on clients and candidates alike.

The good points...

Operating as a Resourcer at Woodrow Mercer you will most likely get experience of IT, Public Sector and Interim Management recruitment. A broad spectrum of some of the industry’s most profitable sectors.

You will also shadow, work with and observe high earning successful consultants’ day to day. Gaining invaluable experience and insight.

As a business, Woodrow Mercer is a sociable, fun and modern company. We take pride in looking after our staff and creating a working environment that provides a platform for our consultants to thrive in a professional and personal manner.

For our best consultants, the chance to earn six figure salaries, go on trips to Ibiza, Las Vegas, Barbados et al 

...and the bad

It's up to you to find the right applicant for each position, and that means screening lots and lots of potential candidates before recruiting them.

Your product is a person(s), and people change their mind. A lot. This job can be frustrating and mentally draining at times so you will need the strength of mind to persevere when the going gets tough and pick yourself up when your best carefully laid plans fall apart.

If you can do that, you’re halfway there.
