Due to continual prosperity and record profits an opportunity has arisen for two graduates within a London based financial headhunting firm. The company is going through a huge period of growth as a result of investment from national and international partners - offices in Tokyo, Dubai and New York.

The successful applicant will be working with an excellent client base containing a number of FTSE 250 firms including top tier banks e.g. Goldman Sachs. With 20 years presence within the recruitment field the company offers an established platform from which you can create your portfolio. With offices all around the world, successful candidates will have the opportunity to travel to New York, Hong Kong or Tokyo by the end of their first year, with an option to move there after 2 years with the company.


The successful applicant will be working within a team of young professionals, becoming an integral part of their thriving legal recruitment team. The team is young, driven, with a strong emphasis on the social side. In order to prosper you will have to be naturally persuasive and resilient. Your day-to-day will be kept fresh and exciting with differing tasks and a variety of people to talk to. It is an extremely meritocratic lifestyle where hard work is directly rewarded via commission as well as rapid career progression.


The role itself does not require any previous recruitment experience, just a drive to succeed and a strong work ethic. Recruitment is a highly competitive environment - at this firm you are rewarded for your hard work, not only in monetary terms, but also with monthly lunch clubs and bi-annual holidays determined by the achievement of realistic targets.


The ideal candidate will possess these qualities:

- Degree level education (2.1 or above preferred - 2.2s accepted if success in other areas)

- Evidence of a strong work ethic, money motivated and target driven

-  Social and outgoing personality with a good sense of humour (much appreciated)

-  Extracurricular activity such as sport, music, travel or achievements is preferred

-  Sales experience preferred such as B2B/B2C/Telesales but not necessary

With these attributes, a first year OTE of £45,000 is a very realistic prospect.

We have a variety of graduate roles on at present (£17k-£25k), for candidates with 0 - 2 years experience, so if this is one is not suitable; please call Nick Lawson at Graduate Fasttrack to discuss other exciting opportunities which you can apply for.
