Are you looking for a challenge? Or to utilise your fabulous sales skills and take a side step into recruitment?

We are recruiting for a Private Health Care provider who are looking to take on their fourth Recruitment Consultant.

Recruitment consultants are responsible for building and maintaining a temporary staffing desk. To actively participate in new business generation to ensure the sales targets are met.

Recruitment consultants are responsible for attracting candidates and matching them to temporary positions with client companies. They attract candidates through advertising in a wide range of media, as well as by networking, headhunting and through referrals. They screen candidates, interview them, do background checks and finally match them to their clients.
