Job Description

Welcome to what could be the very first step in an incredibly exciting career.
At Macildowie, we are looking for our next group of trainee recruiters to join our growing business in 2023. With a brand established over 30 years ago, we recruit across 8 core disciplines some locally and some nationally from our Nottingham and Leicester offices.

What really sets us apart is our approach to what we do. With a focus on partnering with our clients to provide recruitment and retention solutions, we develop relationships that provide the best opportunities for customers in our communities.

We are looking for people with a great work ethic, passionate about development and have good interpersonal skills.

A bit about what you would be doing:
Relationships are at the heart of everything we do and key to success will be working hard to build meaningful connections with the best candidates in the market, engage with clients and manage the whole recruitment process with a real focus on adding value and a consultative approach

Learning how to identify talent in a market, matching candidates not only on skill but soft skills and competencies

Growing your personal brand both in person and on-line, using digital training to help you develop your market

Using our award winning value proposition Macildowie have to create job opportunities with customers and connect them with the best candidates in the market

What we offer you:
Flexibility: In addition to considering all types of working patterns including part-time working, condensed hours and temporary adjustments; we also support hybrid and remote working. With our office based in Leicester you'll spend time in the office with your colleagues and also time working from home and remotely.

Support & training: We will start your journey with us with an initial 6 months training plan for the market that best suits your strengths, with regular support, coaching and access to our e-learning platform 'MacYouniversity'.

Career development: We understand the importance of our people's development and well-being. Most of our Executive Team started as trainees. Whether you're a trainee, consultant, manager or a director; we provide the opportunities for you to develop and be the best version of you.

An award winning brand: with over 30 years in the market we have developed the relationships, marketing tools and value propositions to help you win in your role.

Incentives: In addition to a great commission scheme and the chance to join us on an annual trip to Las Vegas (or other exciting location) we also have weekly & quarterly incentives as well as regular social events.

A family focussed culture: Family will always come first and our commitment is to support everyone in having a healthy balance. That's why we've introduced industry leading family policies, including enhanced maternity & paternity leave, to support parents having paid leave (depending on length of service) to help reduce the financial pressure.

Earning potential: Our ethos is that we should all be rewarded fairly for the work we do so, we keep our bonus & commission schemes transparent, fair and achievable with an amazing set of additional benefits and wider incentives!

What we need from you in return:
An ability to bounce-back: Recruitment can be challenging but it is also incredibly rewarding. The key is how you approach it; you'll need to be able to bounce back from challenges, positively learn and grow from mistakes and keep a can-do attitude throughout.

Passion: A pro-active approach is key to succeeding so if you really like diving in, learning to create opportunities for both yourself and your team and building relationships; this role could be perfect for you.

Communication: To help establish and grow your relationships you'll need to be a good verbal and written communicator, able to adapt your approach to different types of people.

Experience: You don't need specific recruitment experience any experience of working with customers is beneficial. If this is potentially your first job you will need to have something which can demonstrate your drive, communication, problem solving and organisation ability. Tell us about your best achievements outside of the classroom. For example, what role have you played in the success of sports teams, societies or previous jobs.
