Due to recent growth of the company we have an exciting new opportunity for a full time, long-term member of staff to work alongside the existing recruitment team! This position is currently fully based remotely/from home, however, we do have an office in West-Berkshire (Near Reading) where you will be expected to attend for training and team meetings (approx. once a week).
£19,000 - £23,000 gross per year (with salary progression after probationary period)
We provide a specialist service in domestic staff recruitment and domestic staff training. Based in Mayfair, London, we work with a global network of clients in private homes, hotels, restaurants, chalets, and yachts. We approach our services from a unique and fresh perspective. It’s not the bottom line that drives us, but the desire to satisfy and provide the very best service we can to our clients.
It might sound a bit cliché, but we would much prefer to keep a happy client for life rather than just work with brand new clients each time. Our ethos is what drives us, and makes us one of the (in our opinion) friendliest and eager to please agencies.
We are rapidly expanding and are looking for someone who has an interest in recruitment to help the team with recruitment administration. We are also keen to speak to people who have an interest in social media and marketing to help with the digital marketing side of the business too. We see this position being ideal for someone who has an interest in becoming a recruitment consultant or a digital marketer in the future and we are happy to support you in your progression on either path.
Ideally you should have a background in recruitment, however if you do not, but you are a quick learner (this would be assessed during the interview), then we are happy to hear from you! You MUST be excellent at computers/IT. The majority of our work is done on the computer and telephone, so you should be excellent at computer skills, be a quick learner and have perfect written and spoken English in order to process CVs quickly. This is a heavy administration role. You should enjoy admin of all aspects. You should also have an excellent phone manner and personal presentation. You will be given training and shadow the colleagues working.
Recruitment Admin duties:
Due to COVID-19 we are allowing full remote working. You should be happy to be working on UK time zone, and factor in your hours during normal office hours. Should you be based near to West Berkshire, you will be close to a number of the team members who work full time with the company. Once COVID-19 has become managed, we would like you to commit to one day a week (Wednesday) team day at the CEO office in West Berkshire.
Monday to Friday, 9am - 5:30pm. Plus 1 hour additional flexi time each day (including the weekends) to respond to comments and engage with users (first thing, mid day, and late evenings). During the first month you will be expected to do daily training days with us during your working hours in person, so you need to be able to commute to a team member's house in Thatcham for your training. This will then shift to remote working when you are up to speed.
You should speak a very high standard of English and be able to communicate in both written and spoken language to the highest degree of professionalism. You will be assessed on your written and spoken communication skills as part of the assessment process.
You must have an excellent phone personality. You should speak clear English. You must enjoy and be focused on the admin/computer based work - as despite our very glamorous industry this is a computer/telephone based role! If you speak any other languages this is always a bonus, but not required.
We are interviewing now for immediate start - we are recruiting safely within the COVID-19 regulations.
