Job Description

Established in 2001, Venn Group currently employs 400 people and is a leading contract specialist Recruitment Consultancy working within both the public and private sectors. Due to our ongoing success, we are currently looking for Associate Recruitment Consultants to join our Manchester office, as we continue to develop our business into exciting new markets. We are currently looking for a number of graduates, or candidates with previous sales experience, to join our teams to help with this continued success.

Our Manchester office is centrally based, and is just a stones throw away from a number of popular restaurants, bars and interesting places to grab some lunch! We currently have 40 consultants working from this office on a number of teams, which include Construction and Property Services, Rail, Civil Engineering, Estates and Facilities, Public and Private Sector Finance, Public Sector IT, Housing Management, Revenues and Benefits, Public Sector HR as well as Strategic Services.

All new Associate Consultants will receive a structured and comprehensive training programme from the outset. You will receive a combination of training, shadowing, mentoring and support on the desk from the other consultants on your team, your Manager and your Director as well as formal training developed by our in-house training team in London.  Your training will be continuous during your time here and it doesn’t just stop after the 6 month consultant development programme finishes. We believe in investing in you in the long term and providing opportunities for you to continue to personally develop, so we offer a further training course per quarter (selected by you) to help.

We offer all of our new starters a welcoming and friendly team-based environment, where you will be surrounded by like-minded individuals. We are an approachable, outgoing and sociable bunch who enjoy lots of social events including all expenses paid days out in any one of Manchester’s contemporary bars, evening meals out with your team, bowling, quizzes, bingo, charity baking contests/charity day events, civilised wine & gin tasting and, for those feeling brave, the odd trip to a local Karaoke bar!

We have an unrivalled progression scheme at Venn Group along with a highly competitive commission structure which allows you to take control of your own earnings! Our Pathways & Milestones programme offers a clear, transparent pathway to progression and allows for significant pay increases and/or new job titles with each new milestone hit. We’ve had great feedback on this so far and applicants particularly like the way that your progression opportunities are laid out from the start. We also have a unique and competitive commission structure which allows money to be made not only as an individual, but as a team. We are unique in our team-based approach to recruitment and believe this helps us with our ongoing success.

Along with our uncapped commission structure, training programme and a clear pathway to quick progression, other benefits of joining Venn Group include:

  • 22 days holidays per annum (rising by one per year up to 30 days in total)
  • Bupa cover after one year's continuous service
  • Monthly Fizzy Fridays as well as regular team nights out
  • Entry onto our Vennture Points reward scheme (where you can trade in points for items from cinema tickets to technology to holidays!)
  • Top performer lunches for top billers

    A typical day-to-day can involve:

  • Building long-term relationships with both candidates and clients
  • Calling established, warm accounts to maintain already existing relationships with contacts
  • Networking and generating business from cold clients
  • Meeting face to face with clients
  • Screening new candidates over the telephone and face to face

    If you are reading this and you believe you are;

  • Money motivated and driven by success
  • Tenacious and hardworking
  • Excellent at communicating with others
  • Able to thrive in a fast-paced agency setting

Then a career at Venn Group could be for you!

If you are educated to degree level (2:2 minimum), or you have previous sales experience, along with a proven ability to think on your feet, whilst contributing as part of a strong team, we would love to hear from you!
