Are you a bright, people-orientated graduate looking to join an award-winning, international headhunting consultancy? 

We’d love to talk to you! We are a headhunting firm based in Covent Garden – the heart of London – and we’re looking for superstars to join our research team. 

In this role, you’ll support our recruitment consultants and play a primary role in candidate generation. You will learn the art of effective communication, conducting research, interviewing and assessing candidates, and mastering the art of persuasion! 

Alongside in-depth training through a leading recruitment body, you will receive training from the leaders of the business and day-to-day mentoring and development, all part of a personalised training programme to help you progress to consultant-level and beyond. 

Key responsibilities of the role include:

  • examining the marketplace to identify suitable candidates for clients

  • proactively headhunting candidates, both on the phone and through online platforms

  • building strong relationships with candidates in your market to ensure you are their 'go-to' headhunter when they are open to new opportunities

  • monitoring CRM databases and championing best practice internally

  • attending networking events to meet industry professionals and boost your personal brand

  • other ad hoc projects for the team, where required 

Skills you'll develop in the role:

  • in-depth research and analytical skills

  • sales and negotiation 

  • exceptional communication and relationship building skills

  • time management and working to deadlines

  • a strong understanding of the marketing and communications industry

  • headhunting skills, developed through training sessions hosted by Hanson Search and by external training professionals

The ideal candidate will have great interpersonal skills, tons of energy, and a real drive to succeed. You must be curious to learn, engaging with people, and always ready for a challenge! You never know when a request to attend a CEO-level meeting, a networking event with industry leaders, or an invite to join a team Tough Mudder might land in your inbox. We love people who are passionate and ambitious, who want to excel in their careers and aren’t frightened to get there. 

If this sounds like you, get in touch. We can't wait to hear from you!
