What makes a Hays consultant?
We recruit the attitude and develop the skills
Recruitment Consulting is a career that is all about matching people to organisations. Your role is to develop and manage your own portfolio of clients and source the most suitable candidates. You will have the opportunity to consult and advise the decision makers of many of the world's leading organisations and make the most of your broad range of skills and talents.
As market leaders, we know that it's the depth and breadth of our expertise and industry insight that sets us apart from the competition. That's why we invest heavily in your learning and development. The training at Hays is widely recognised as the industry's best. We want you to be extremely successful, so we support your development with formal classroom training and on-the-job coaching from experienced colleagues who are passionate about their work.
You might not know what you want to be or do. You may have embarked on a career that simply isn't you, or you may have recently graduated and still be trying to work out what that career should be.
There is no typical profile of a successful consultant at Hays. We employ people with diverse work and life experiences, from recent graduates through to expert sales people, engineers, accountants and lawyers.
There are however, certain qualities that are common amongst our most successful consultants at Hays. A passion for their work, a desire to build and share expertise, determination to be the best, drive to exceed targets and commitment to exceptional customer service. And most of all we’re interested in who you are and the attitude you bring to work every day.
Recruitment is an incredibly demanding environment and the people who succeed are exceptionally motivated. Strength of character is what will ensure that you achieve your goals. You will need to be able to work under pressure and manage the most challenging workloads.
You will need to respond proactively and positively to targets. There is no room for complacency in a sales environment. Your exceptional communication skills will hold you in good stead to build strong business relationships.
If this sounds appealing, then a career in recruitment with Hays is for you.
Being a market-leader, we have high expectations of you to fulfil your own potential just as you should have high expectations of us to support you. Only by continuing to learn and grow will we stay on top of our game, deliver unparalleled expertise and truly power the world of work.
