What does it take Recruitment Consultant?

Honestly, a lot of resilience, drive, determination and motivation! In recruitment, just like any other business, there are good days and bad days. Here at Protocol, we celebrate together on the good days, whilst supporting and lifting each other on the bad. Therefore, a dedicated team player is essential.

The role

You will be tasked with finding the very best talent for clients within the Higher Education sector nationwide! You may be working with Universities, Training Providers and colleges to name but a few.

This varied role will have you chatting with amazing clients and candidates alike, so the ideal candidate should have excellent customer service skills and a personable, friendly approach.

The company & the person

Protocol are already well-established within the Education and Skills sector; however, we are seeking the most prestigious talent to help us in our continued growth and journey to take over the recruitment world!

Experience in recruitment is essential so applicants with a background in Higher Education recruitment will be at an advantage. You will need to have experience of working within Higher Education and know the ins and outs of dealing with every possible situation.

Are you hungry to learn and progress? Excellent – we have developed a market-leading training plan for each and every one of our employees, which contains inductions, group and whole company training sessions!

As well as promotions, we offer competitive salaries, an uncapped commission scheme and additional prizes and competitions.

The office is bright, vibrant and buzzing with big windows, open plan seating and an ‘Energy Zone’ complete with pool table and sofas. Located in the lovely town of West Bridgford, you are only a short walk away from the River Trent, shops, cafes and restaurants where some of the team like to spend their lunch breaks. There are also excellent transport links into the Nottingham City Centre, so getting to work is no issue.

Do you get fed up of being confided to a desk day in, day out? Whilst this is predominately an office-based role, you will get regular opportunities to visit other Protocol offices, events and conferences off-site!
