Sales professionals are topping the hit list of potential candidates as a leading recruiting agency announces expansion plans.
As the jobs market continues to improve and companies ramp up hiring activity, recruitment consultancy Adecco Group UK & Ireland is looking to grow its workforce to help cope with demand and to recruit more than 70 consultants across seven brands within 90 days.
Adecco Group is looking to ‘change the face of the recruitment consultant’ and encourage people with a range of sectorial experience, particularly in sales, try their hand at recruitment.
The locations of the jobs include London, Birmingham, Bristol, Manchester, Nottingham, Milton Keynes, Southampton and Dublin.
Peter Searle, chief executive UK and Ireland at Adecco, said: “We’ve seen a marked improvement in the labour market recently, with no signs of slowing down. Market confidence has seen a sharp resurgence and on the back of an improved economic outlook, many companies are ramping up their workforces. For us, this means reacting to the faster pace of hiring by investing in the growth of our own workforce.
“As a global leader in recruitment services, Adecco Group has some of the best training and development programmes in place to help support and nurture future leaders. We want the best and hungriest people to join us. I am excited to see our own recruitment drive come to fruition.
“Jobs within recruitment are varied and you’ll get a chance to specialise in a field that suits you best. Be it IT, Telecomms or Banking and Finance, there is a role for you. Transferable skills are important as they allow candidates to pick up vital business skills quickly. Candidates we’ve seen excel have been good at building strong and trusting relationships. As there is a large element of sales and customer service involved you’ll also need to be able to converse well and be able to work within a team environment to really enjoy recruitment.”
