Recruitment Account Executive - How would you like to change your life?

We're currently recruiting a Recruitment Account Executive to support the Account Manager in servicing a large engineering recruitment contract, recently won by our business. But before we get into that, let us tell you a little about who we are and why you should join us:

We are developers. From the moment you enter our business you will notice how heavily we invest into our people, starting with a comprehensive induction that introduces you to our business and the recruitment industry, provided by our awesome and dedicated Training and Development Team. Training doesn't end with your induction; it's continues to compliment your own personal development and includes opportunity to gain formal qualifications - exactly as it should do.

We are givers. We will give you all the tools you need to succeed. We will give you recruitment training. We will give you expert knowledge and insight. We will give you incentive to build a successful desk. We will also give you great salaries, life changing commissions, ad-hoc rewards including trips abroad, up to 30 days holiday and loads more. We will even give you the most important meal of the day - breakfast (and fresh fruit too).

We are flexible. Recruitment is hard and life can be harder. We recognise this which is why we offer a generous holiday allowance a good pension and private medical insurance. We understand that not everyone's life functions on an 8:30 - 5:30 basis and that's why we also offer flexible working too.

We are winners. Competition is in our veins and we thrive on success. Yes, we have targets and no, it's not easy but we're offering you an opportunity to change your life - get on the property ladder, save for your future, enjoy the finer things in life.

  • Managing candidates and their journey - organising and preparing candidates for interview, providing updates and feedback, setting expectations.
  • Delivering against internal and external KPI's.

Become part of something great

  • I have received nothing but the heartiest welcome into the Business. Not your normal recruitment agency. Firstly, you receive thorough training. Instantly you get the welcoming atmosphere and there is great team morale. Management listens, Colleagues listen and my opinion and any offering I contribute, I feel is valued and taken seriously. I really enjoy the level of support I receive as a newbie to both Recruitment and the world of Technical and I genuinely feel valued. I would highly recommend and already have to many of my contacts!

  • A friendly environment that takes work seriously. Everyone at Astute seems to very much enjoy being here and that reflects on the atmosphere in such a positive way. No one ever seems to have an issue with lending a helping hand when it is needed. The way that the staff on the floor are very focused and hardworking spurs you on to be the same. The saying "Work hard, play hard" could not apply more to the lovely bunch I have the pleasure of working with. I really feel as though I have fitted in well at Astute.
