This is an excellent opportunity for a driven, articulate, professional and friendly individual to join a successful recruitment consultancy. There is a supportive atmosphere and no cold-calling involved.

The targets are realistic, you will earn commission on every placement you make and earnings are uncapped. Targets are clearly defined and achievable - there will be a direct correlation between your efforts and your financial rewards so this role is best suited to a self-motivated individual.

- Administration - filing (online & offline) and sending correspondence
- Phone - professionally answering calls for you and other team members
- Email Marketing - identifying and contacting the appropriate audience about opportunities of interest
- Advertising - writing adverts about specific vacancies to be posted to national job boards

You will need to demonstrate that you can build rapport and communicate easily with people from a wide range of professional backgrounds and at various points in their career, are capable of working in a busy environment where you will work to regular deadlines and can adjust to rapidly changing priorities.

Excellent written and verbal communication skills are a prerequisite for this role as is a strong commercial awareness and a drive to succeed, learn and progress.

The role of Trainee Account Manager is a permanent opportunity and is offering a basic salary of £20-25,000 per annum dependent on depth of relevant skills and experience plus commission, subsidised gym membership and pension.
