Are you an experienced recruitment consultant looking for a new role?

Do you want to work for a company who offer lots of incentives and an excellent commission structure?

As a 360 Consultant on the permanent division, you will proactively take responsibility for 3 key business activities as detailed below: Candidate resourcing, account management and business development.

The purpose of this role is to proactively generate new prospective clients who would make a good JHR partner, retain and grow key clients, whilst achieving monthly revenue targets. 360 Consultants are to work closely with their team manager to accurately forecast / pipeline month to month allowing room for the Team Manager to ensure collective team targets are achieved monthly, as well as supporting you individually to achieve target.

We look for our 360 Consultants to be excellent team players, strong communicators, and natural conversationalists. As an account manager you will be able to utilise the resource support across the team, strengthening your overall candidate pool, as well as benefiting from being able to earn from your colleague’s desks.

We look for our team to lead by example with confidence and in line with our values, helping shape more junior members of the team, offer support to everyone and sharing best practice ideas across the team where possible.

On-going key performance indicators:

  • Accurate monthly forecasting

  • High fill rates with all key clients – having the biggest ‘slice of the pie’ against other agencies
  • High retention rates with all clients – FOC’s & credits given to be reviewed annually
  • Utilising maintained candidate pool via spec activity

  • Directly influencing the spend growth of your key clients – proactively obtaining introductions to new departments, sourcing potential new contacts and introducing yourself, make speculative candidate introductions to roles you see advertised that aren’t given to you etc.
  • Identifying opportunities within your clients for your colleagues cross-department (generate opportunities for the temp desk and exec search)

Progression for this role

The most natural route of progression from this role is evolving into a Senior 360 and later a Managing Consultant. To achieve this promotion within the business we will look for consistency against all of the key performance indicators listed, consistency in monthly billing / performance against target and positive performance against the behavioural competencies outlined in appraisals.
