Recruitment Resourcer / Trainee Recruitment Consultant


We are Westray Recruitment Consultants - a leading boutique recruitment consultancy based on Team Valley.Our team of committed and highly trained Consultants offer specialist expertise in the Commercial, Manufacturing and Industrial, Technical & Engineering and Professional sectors.

Due to a period of continued growth in the division, we are now looking for an ambitious, motivated individual to join our Commercial team. With an excellent internal team and a culture built upon honesty and trust, this is a fantastic opportunity to join an established business where you can progress and develop.


When working in recruitment, every day is different. This role will give you the opportunity to broaden your business knowledge, by exposing you to a variety of businesses and candidates from a range of market sectors on a daily basis. As a result, you will be engaging with professionals at all levels.

The idea is that you will initially work to support our Lead Commercial Consultant in a key resourcing role. However, you will also show motivation and passion to develop into a 360 Recruitment Consultant.

Initially, your role will involve:

  • Sourcing and selecting suitable candidates for vacancies, utilising a range of methods including our database and external job boards
  • Conducting telephone screening interviews with potential candidates
  • Preparing and submitting CVs to clients
  • Arranging interviews with clients
  • Writing job adverts and managing responses
  • Taking incoming calls on the desk, being a key point of contact
  • Key administration tasks and database management

After demonstrating your capabilities, you will then have the opportunity to develop into a Consultant role. Support and training will be provided along the way, but it will ultimately be up to you as to how quickly this happens.

As a fully-fledged Consultant, you will then take on business development and sales responsibilities and move into a more client and customer facing role. This will involve account management, generating your own pipeline and attending client meetings.


What do you need to be considered for this role? Well, you definitely need to be self-motivated and demonstrate a hunger and desire to develop. You should also meet the following criteria:

Preferably educated to degree level
You must hold a full UK driving licence and have access to your own transport
You must be very articulate, with excellent telephone, face to face and written communication skills
A strong team player

It would be advantageous if you have previous recruitment experience; however, what is most critical is an excellent work ethic and a desire to achieve exceptional customer service.


This is a permanent role, whereby you will work from 8.30am until 5.30pm Monday – Friday (with a 4.30pm finish on a Friday, providing the requirements on the desk have been met).


Salary is negotiable
Team bonus is also in place, which you will be eligible for upon completion of 3 months’ service
Free parking
22 days’ holiday per year + bank holidays + your birthday (rising with length of service)


Should you be interested, please do send a copy of your CV, together with a covering letter to our Lead Commercial Consultant, Katie Newton, [email protected]
