Allegis Group

Allegis Group

Recruitment Consultancy/Headhunting is a fast paced direct sales position that offers a varied and challenging role far from a typical 9-5 job. As a Recruitment Consultant you will effectively run your own business building up a client portfolio, attract the right candidates for the roles and match the two respective parties (candidate and client). Executive Search and Recruitment is the second fastest growing industry in the UK, worth approximately £29 billion a year turnover in the UK alone.

Founded in 1983, Allegis Group is a serious global player, with over 350 offices and a turnover in excess of $8.3 billion. We are the largest privately owned recruitment company and the 4th largest staffing firm in the world. Allegis’ international offering is headquartered in central London; we provide a full range of recruitment services from contingency through to executive search, for organisations across the UK, Europe and Asia.

In the UK Allegis has offices in London, Thames Valley, Birmingham, Manchester, Edinburgh & Dublin and we are still growing! With our global presence and solid infrastructure we can offer our people a clear career path, intensive training program, ongoing support and market-leading rewards.

We believe there are two main factors which differentiate us from our competitors:

  • Our employees – we hire the very best candidates in the market, train them to a high level in a specific industry, motivate them in a range of different ways, not just financially; stock ownership is a major incentive - currently 24% of our staff are shareholders and over 90% of these staff are recruited at entry level. We also train and develop our employees and allow them to develop the career path that best suits them as individuals; we do not believe in a ‘one size fits all’ approach to learning.
  • The pro-active methods – we boast a very impressive and broad client list. Consultants do not spend their time randomly cold-calling managers, instead, we strategically target organisations we wish to work with and build relationships with clients which are more akin to a partnership. This state has been achieved by focusing our efforts on finding and attracting the best talent in the market. AGI does not wait for applicants to apply, preferring instead to target the passive job seeker on behalf of the client.

Experience within the field is not necessary, although sales or commercial experience is beneficial.

This opportunity would suit an entrepreneurial individual with drive to succeed, and the desire to be the best at whatever they do.
