The Apex Graduate Scheme
Recruitment may not be an area that you had considered moving into – HOWEVER, if you are looking for a career where every day is different, where you spend most of your life speaking with people (either on the phone or face to face), and where you are directly rewarded for your personal delivery, then we are the place for you!
We are all about providing both our clients and candidates with the best levels of service and NOT all about cold calling and sales, sales, sales! Don’t get us wrong - you will need to be a naturally positive, driven, determined and committed individual but we do not pressure our staff into cold calling and hitting sales KPI’s. We are all about quality over quantity, customer service delivery. If you can deliver this to a high standard, then you will be rewarded with an unlimited bonus scheme.
From a role in recruitment you can expect to build and develop the following skills that will be of use to you in the rest of your career:
- Understanding of P&L and financials
- Stakeholder management
- Business relationship building
- Market analysis
- Prioritisation of commercial activities including time and resource management
- An insight into marketing, advertising, and the commercial operation of a business
You will have a starting salary of £20,000+ per annum.
Dependent upon skills and experience, this can be increased – we also have regular reviews to ensure that our Account Managers are being competitively remunerated.
An uncapped bonus scheme – the more placements you make, the more you earn! We strongly believe that you should benefit from the roles you fill – that’s why it’s uncapped!
In addition, a subsidised private healthcare scheme is an option for you to join, and a 3% contributory pension scheme.
Most importantly, you will gain the skills and experience to either develop internally (we are keen advocates of promoting our own people), or to carry forward for the rest of your career. After a year with us, the business and commercial acumen you would have had the opportunity to build will stand you in excellent stead for the future!
You will receive a mixture of ‘formal’, classroom-based training and on-the-job training. We have a suite of ‘bitesize’ modules that should give you a good idea how a recruitment agency works and you will be assigned a buddy or mentor to support you through the first few months with us.
In addition, there is external training that we send our Account Managers on to give them an array of tools to enable them to provide an outstanding level of customer service to our clients. We are always willing to talk to employees who wish to undergo specific training (as long as there is an approved business case for it) – so we would encourage anyone to come and talk to us!
