 Job Description

MCS Group is seeking Sales Professionals seeking to make a career move into technology recruitment as they continue their phenomenal expansion in NI and beyond.

Due to our continued growth within the local market, the Fintech Recruitment Team at MCS Group is seeking to further strengthen their cohort with bright and talented sales individuals seeking to transition into a successful career in Technology Recruitment.

About MCS Group

At MCS Group our vision is simple – To Set The Standard In Each Of The Markets We Operate In. We are one of Northern Ireland’s leading professional recruitment firms with specialisms in IT, Engineering and Professional Services.

Our continued success is driven by the quality of our people. As a business we have invested heavily in ensuring our consultants have all the tools and support required to succeed and maximise their earning potential. Our technology is first class; we are fully cloud based and therefore have the most up to date IT systems available in the industry.

We are on a significant growth curve and are seeking several new additions to our existing team of high calibre Consultants within the Fintech & Software team.


If successful, you will be recruiting on behalf of many of Northern Ireland’s most prestigious firms within Financial Technology and Software. You’ll have the opportunity to join one of MCS Group’s most driven and highest-performing teams and kick-start a successful career in technology recruitment. The job of a specialist recruiter is extremely varied day by day but underpinned by 2 core elements which drive almost everything you will do; business development and candidate sourcing.

Business Development – you will use your strong communication and selling skills to build new client relationships and further develop existing client relationships. New business is the lifeblood of any recruitment firm so the ability to open doors and continually ensure your business levels are high, is one of the key elements of a successful career in recruitment.

Candidate Sourcing – we work almost exclusively in challenging skills markets where talent is in very short supply. Our main differentiator as a firm is our ability to source great candidates that our competitors and clients cannot. Therefore, you will need to be extremely proactive and creative, using all available tools, in sourcing the best talent for our clients.

Great customer care and client management skills are also necessary in a role like this, keeping clients on board while the search for skills is going on and managing candidates throughout the recruitment process.

Person & Package

For this role we are seeking to connect with people with previous sales/business development experience (either B2B or B2C).

You must be extremely driven, have a strong desire to achieve success and a work ethic to back up your ambition.

Given the nature of the role, high levels of tenacity and resilience are also critical requirements. Previous experience in business development or a commercially orientated role would be useful although not essential.

Specialist Recruitment is not for the fainthearted; you must be confident enough to connect with people at all levels, be resilient enough to deal with setbacks and have the ability to remain on track when things get tough. In return we offer a good starting basic salary with a top of the market commission structure, designed to both reward and incentivise you to achieve a high level of success in our industry.

Strong IT skills combined with experience of using social media platforms such as Linkedin, Twitter, Google+ and Facebook are also necessary.

Full training will be provided.


Negotiable – with market leading base salaries and attractive commission structures.
