We're Hiring Copy

As a niche agency dealing with recruitment in the heating, ventilation and air conditioning sectors (HVAC), we have a strong understanding of the importance of having the right people in place to make sure your business is a success.

Our own business is no different and, having already successfully developed trainee recruitment consultants into valued members of our team we are now on the lookout for new candidates who can grow their skills and career with Thornhvac.

So, what attributes are we looking for in this multi-faceted role and how can we support your career development? 

A flair for sales

Essentially, recruitment in our specialist field is a business development role and we are looking for someone who is already showing promise in a sales or marketing role. It’s our job to find the right people for jobs in the HVAC sector and we pride ourselves on finding quality candidates rather than sending large quantities of CVs and applicants. Working for a niche practice like ours means you will gain specialist knowledge and deal with leading companies and organisations in the heating, ventilation and air conditioning sectors.

This role involves working on the whole recruitment cycle and our consultants spend a lot of time making calls to candidates and clients, and advertising market vacancies. Expertise on the phone and strong communication are among the skills we are looking for in this role.

Networking & building relationships

Building connections, negotiating, problem solving and engaging with clients and candidates is a core part of our work, so we are looking for confident, outgoing individuals who can develop business relationships in the market. Our clients are looking for experienced sales and engineering talent and it’s our job to deliver successful recruitment solutions.

Develop your skills

As a trainee recruitment consultant, we are dedicated to advancing your skills. We deliver a full induction and training programme in all of the support and front-line functions of the business before you take up the baton yourself. We believe in team work and rather than focusing on individual benchmarks, we have company targets that we are all aiming to achieve. Supporting our staff in their career progression is important to us and there are lots of opportunities for future development. We value our employees and place a lot of emphasis on working together to achieve common goals.


In this job, no day is ever the same and you can expect to be talking to lots of different people to find the right candidate to suit the role. There are also follow up elements that need to be explored and negotiated such as salaries, benefits and career development.

We are looking forward to recruiting new members of the team who are dedicated, have an aptitude for sales and are keen to progress their career with us.
