 Job Description

Recruitment Consultant (Associate to Senior) - Hays IT, Belfast

Trainee Recruitment Consultant, Hays Technology, Belfast – OTE £30k

About us

We are looking for a recruitment consultant to join our growing Technology team.

Hays is the most successful specialist recruiter in the U.K.  We have had a strong presence in Belfast for over 23 years and with this abundance of experience comes an unrivalled knowledge of the Northern Ireland market. This combination of global leadership and local expertise means that our consultants excel in their specialism. 

What you’ll need to succeed

Whilst experience in Information or Digital Technology is desirable, the strengths of our brilliant Belfast team lie in our variety of people. We understand that people from different circumstances bring different strengths to the table, and so hire from all kinds of backgrounds – sales professionals, telesales, call centre environments, graduates… all with an interest in sales and a drive to succeed.

As a recruitment consultant you will source candidates, win clients and match the right candidate to the right job, so you’ll need to demonstrate that you’re sales driven and results-focused for this role. Recruitment is hard work and it takes time and perseverance to achieve results, so resilience, persistence and determination is key. You need to be passionate about people, outgoing and confident.

Our office operates over twelve specialisms but we work as one team, so consistently share leads and meet clients together. Because of this, you will need to work well in a team environment as well as independently.

What you’ll get in return from us

Working for Hays as a graduate is an experience unlike any other. You will receive first class training, access to the best technology in the industry and guidance from our Marketing Executive (who will provide you with invaluable insights into advertising and communication to ensure your writing is always individual and impactful).  You will be fully supported by your manager to ensure you quickly become an expert in your field.

Each team is closely knit here in the Belfast office, meaning you’ll also enjoy the expertise of your colleagues as you begin your new career, along with a brilliant social life too. With Christmas parties in the gorgeous Galgorm hotel, free pizza Fridays and regular nights out, Hays is the perfect graduate role if you don’t want to leave behind the fun of being a student.  It’s no surprise that we’ve been recognised as the #1 Employer in The Job Crowd’s Top 100 Companies for Graduates to work for!

You will receive a competitive base salary and uncapped commission, along with an impressive variety of incentives and rewards. We also have a huge range of generous employee benefits to choose from including:

•           Discounted gym membership

•           Annual season ticket loans

•           Healthcare and dental care plans

•           The ability to buy extra holidays

•           Generous shopping discounts and savings

We operate a meritocratic culture where you are rewarded, recognised and promoted based on your results. Its hard work and we expect excellence, but if you deliver the results your earning potential and career progression has no limits.
