Senior Recruitment Consultant

Reporting to: Nana Boss, Divisional Manager

Simon Gerrard, Executive Director

1st Step Solutions are currently looking for a skilled and motivated Recruitment Consultant to head up a fast-paced temp desk in its Central London office. The Construction division is a new branch of 1st Step and has been very successful in building a strong base of clients within the permanent sector. With the growth in the market and demand for Freelancing and Temporary professionals, we are now looking to increase the team with a confident and driven consultant.

Previous recruitment experience within the construction sector is preferred, although consideration will be given to people with a strong demonstrable track record within a contract recruitment environment. For those that have worked in recruitment, you'll appreciate that this team works primarily with main and sub-contractors and are not restricted by a VMS policy, so all recruitment is carried out by relationship building over the phone and more importantly - face to face.

    • work in conjunction with the Senior Management team in raising the positive profile of 1st Step Solutions Limited.

  • Recruitment

    • Resourcing of professional and technical candidates
    • utilise the existing database of candidates in line with the training you are given to fulfill client requests and ensure consistent recording of information;

    • Working in a fast-paced environment with the authority of making quick decisions
    • Identify potential key personnel from competitor agencies and report back to Senior Management in order to develop and grow the 1st Step team.

  • General Office:
    • answer incoming calls and deal with enquiries professionally and efficiently;
