What do Aaron Wallis Look For in a Recruiter

Our consultants and directors deliver a full-circle recruitment role where we responsible for converting new business and managing the entire recruitment projects from start to completion.  We are looking for recruitment professionals who are looking for the long-term and to grow within an ambitious, entrepreneurial and visionary business.   

To apply you will be passionate and sales led recruiter that is looking for a culture where you will work autonomously and will not be micro-managed.   Whilst continuous support from highly experienced directors is available, we prefer consultants that structure their own time and manage their ‘own business within a business’.  

As a company, the fundamental reason behind our success has been our positive and winning teamwork ethic, and we are seeking individuals who are achievement led and embrace these values.

This is a challenging role that requires a confident and forthright character that is passionate, inquisitive, creative, credible, positive and resilient.  Skills wise we need a sales led individual who is ambitious and tenacious yet is organised with a terrific understanding of Microsoft Office together with the ability to quickly pick up new IT systems and tools.  You must be a ‘sponge’ for information and someone who is genuinely interested in understanding ‘how things work’ and ‘how companies do things.’
