Trainee Recruitment Consultant, US Market. £25,000 + Uncapped Commission
London, EC3R 6DL.


Join us as we develop our US team.

We work with some of the most innovative companies in the life sciences industry across the pharmaceutical, biotech, medtech and digital health sectors, and we've been doing it for more than 30 years.

The latest step in our journey involves expansion into the US. We already have a dedicated team expanding our stateside presence from our London HQ, and we're looking for entry-level consultants to join us with the potential to relocate to the West Coast in 2023.

You'll join our early talent academy where we'll provide you with the training, resources, hands-on experience, and mentorship you will need to develop.
We're hiring throughout the summer, so whether you're looking to join somewhere as soon as you graduate or later in the year, apply today.

Your role as a recruitment consultant:
* Seeking out new clients to work with and selling the services we offer at SEC
* Using our suite of available resources and tech to identify candidates for active requirements, and to build your network for future requirements
* Managing job vacancies we receive from clients proactively, professionally and in a timely manner
* Progressing candidates through the entire recruitment cycle; sourcing, screening and managing offers
* Actively assessing your own performance and adjusting your inputs to meet activity and revenue targets (KPIs)

What we're looking for in a person:
* You have an undergraduate degree or higher - business, marketing, or a scientific subject would be beneficial, but a degree in most subjects would meet the US visa requirements
* You're willing to work flexible hours to meet US requirements - for most of our US team this is 11am to 8pm, but could differ depending on demand
* You're looking to grow a meaningful career in sales, and you're comfortable performing outreach to prospective clients and candidates
* You're persuasive, an effective communicator, and consider yourself a natural leader
* Reading between the lines is something you do naturally. You're able to understand a situation from different perspectives, and know what buttons to press to ensure it swings in your favour
* You've got a natural curiosity and you're diligent. You're able to pick up on small details in behaviour, language, or character and use them to your advantage
* You're ambitious and driven - self-development and career progression are both major motivators

Some studies suggest women are less likely to apply for a role if they feel they do not meet 100% of the skills and experience outlined in a job ad. If you fall into this category and you were about to rule yourself out based on some of the above criteria, please consider applying anyway - we would welcome your application.
