Are you ambitious, sales focused and target driven? Would you pride yourself on the service you provide to both clients and candidates alike?

Most importantly, do you have the personality to match?!

If this is you, then you could be just what we are looking for. Due to expansion, we are looking for talented Recruitment Consultants of all levels, across a number of sectors including Commercial, Hospitality, Industrial and Technical. Whether you are an existing Recruitment Consultant or looking to start a career in recruitment, we’d love to hear from you.

Who we are…

Stafffinders is a family-led business, very much at the forefront of temporary and permanent recruitment since 1971. So much so, we have won several awards, most recent being "Outstanding Performing Business" at the 2017 ROCCO Awards. With offices in both the west and east coast, we cover the length of breadth of Scotland (also internationally thanks to the continued success of our sister company, Kingpin - who are also recruiting). Members of both APSCO and REC trade bodies, our values and ethics are very much in line with our family background. We also work closely with both community and charity organisations, recently playing an active role in the Paisley 2021 bid as well as raising awareness and funds for Cash for Kids and RAMH.

What we want from you…

To succeed as a Recruitment Consultant, you will need to be determined, enthusiastic and self-driven. Attitude is everything within the job, as you will be required to proactively drive business development in a competitive market, actively sourcing clients and candidates through a wide variety of mediums for a wide variety of roles. Online and social media presence is an important part of the role, but you should also be outgoing, adaptable to different individuals and willing to pick up the phone and get out and meet people. The personal touch is vital, so if you want to be figuratively tied to a desk and hide behind emails, perhaps give it a miss.

As for experience, we are flexible. We are interested in all levels, whether it be Senior or Trainee Recruitment Consultants. If you don’t have experience in recruitment but are able to demonstrate the skills and attitude required to succeed, then that’s fine also.

What you get from us…

Aside from highly competitive salary (based on experience), achievable bonus opportunities, the potential for flexible working hours and time in lieu, quite a lot actually. You will get the chance to earn industry accredited qualifications from the REC, along with the opportunity to develop through world-renowned training plans such as those by “Social Talent”. Besides the aforementioned bonus opportunities, we offer regular and varied performance-related incentives and prizes (£100 restaurant vouchers most recently up for grabs!). You will get the chance to have your ideas heard and implemented, as we don’t like to micromanage, rather be supportive and open-minded in our approach. Last but not least, if you are really good you will get the chance to progress within the company. Danielle has just been promoted to Managing Consultant, after only a year with us and it was only 5 years ago I was bluffing my way through my first placements, whereas now I am writing inspiring job ads such as this…….!

Is it hard work?...Definitely

Is it worth it?....Absolutely

So, do you think this sounds good?

To apply, please forward us an up-to-date CV. If you want to discuss it further, please call us and ask for either Graeme (myself) or Fiona (19 years here, so what she doesn’t know about working here, isn’t worth knowing).

We look forward to hearing from you…
