The Opportunity

Letís look at a typical day in Zest. In fact, we canít do this because there is no typical day. Being a recruitment consultant is one of the most diverse roles you are likely to work in. No two days are the same and rarely a dull moment.

The job of Recruitment Consultant is all about marrying sales skills with psychological skills. In order to be good at the job you need to have an innate ability (developed with training) to present things in good light, the tenacity to keep going when you think something is of value. A genuine interest in people that helps you to understand them and a capacity to build strong sustainable relationships. You develop business Ė so you will become a business development guru. You research, and network candidates for roles and then technically screen them. Second place is the first person to come last in recruitment.

Sales and outstanding service could be two key words to describe a key recruiter. Add to that a huge amount of hard work in speaking to candidates and clients and following a process to make placements, and you have the essence of recruitment.

Recruitment provides with a level of business acumen second to none Ėit is a career that will give you such a diverse and yet detailed understanding of the business market. It gives you a very large and highly transferable skills set for the business world; it provides training and development; it gives you as much autonomy as you want to have, of course the pay and rewards are great, alongside fantastic training, development and long term career opportunities

Our business is built on organic growth, leaders in our Stamford and Bristol offices started as trainees! We are always keen to speak with ambitious individuals that are looking for a business that can offer a fulfilling and rewarding career.
