    Resourcing Consultant

    Develop your skills

    Being part of the team at Highfield is more than just a ‘job’. We offer long term career progression, unrivalled internal training and a meritocratic structure, meaning you are guided through your career, and rewarded for your successes.
    Our business has been built on three strong values - Professionalism, Integrity, Expertise. Working with us means encompassing these values and embracing our honest, hardworking culture.

    You will act as the vital link in matching the right candidate with the right vacancy. Speaking solely to candidates, you’ll gather essential information to ensure we can match industry professionals with our vast network of clients. Factors like location, salary expectations and information about their previous roles will mean you can fully understand their requirements.

    Relationship building is imperative. Not all our candidates are looking for a new challenge immediately - their contract may be due to expire in 6 months, so they are just ‘testing the water’ to see what their options are once it ends. They might even just be seeing what the market is currently like. No matter what their circumstance, you need to gain trust and build unrivalled rapport to ensure Highfield are their first choice in agency.

    Accountabilities
    Day to day, you’ll be involved in candidate name gathering, candidate management and advert response handling.
    Dealing with both permanent and contract vacancies, at a range of levels, each day will typically involve;

    • Sourcing and selecting industry professionals for our clients, by identifying skills to match candidates appropriately with vacancies
    • Preparing adverts for job boards and social media
    • Conducting telephone interviews with candidates
    • Networking to attract potential passive candidates, new to our database, using social media

     
    About you
    You’ll need to be a confident, resilient individual to succeed in the role of Resourcing Consultant. As it’s essential to get as much information as possible to make the perfect job match and gain future business leads, you’ll also need great people skills, and be able to build and maintain excellent working relationships with your candidates.

    In a nutshell, you should;

  • Have good communication skills
  • Be able to gain people's confidence and put them at ease
  • Be persuasive, persistent and patient
  • Be flexible and adaptable
  • Have a mature personality
  • Have good organisational and administrative skills
  • Be able to prioritise
  • Have good IT skills
  • Be able to work to deadlines

  • Progression opportunities

    Highfield operate a meritocratic structure - we promote from within. So, you could join us in a Resourcing Consultant role, move to a Recruitment Consultant role, then a Senior Recruitment Consultant position and into Managerial roles. If you’re successful, we reward you. This means you get a defined career path, with various routes you can take, within a growing company.
