Trainee Recruitment Consultant


East Leeds

Basic £18k to £25K

Do you enjoy talking with people on the telephone?
Are you self-motivated and organised?
Then you should consider a career with us training to be a recruitment consultant.
You will find the role of bringing companies and candidates together is both satisfying and financially rewarding.



Thornhvac is a specialist engineering recruitment consultancy dealing with manufacturers, distributors and contractors, mainly in the heating, ventilation and air conditioning sectors (HVAC). 

The company provides sales, management and technical staff across the UK and to some overseas markets and has developed a good reputation with candidates and clients for effectiveness and integrity. 

Trainee Recruitment Consultants are given extensive training which can include a two year apprenticeship leading to an industry recognised qualification. They are helped to develop expertise in a specific sector. Recruitment Consultants also work closely together to share jobs and candidates so that their expertise can be fully utilised.

The company profit sharing scheme actively encourages consultants to work together in the customers' best interest. 

The recruitment consultant at Thornhvac is involved in the whole recruitment cycle, from building the relationship with the client company, gaining the vacancy to attracting and assessing the applicants and filling the position.

Consultants aim to deal with the leading companies and the best candidates in a sector and utilise the company's database system to identify candidates as well as advertise and market vacancies using a variety of media as required. 

Recruitment is essentially a sales role and consultants spend most of their time on the telephone talking with clients and candidates, getting referrals and building relationships. Although the company has a comprehensive database and sophisticated recruitment software it is very much a 'contact sport' and success comes from time and expertise on the telephone.  

Although consultants are encouraged to visit clients, this is mainly an office based role with the bulk of their day spent on the telephone making outbound calls persuading candidates and clients to use our services.

As a Trainee you will enter an induction and training program that will develop your skills in all of the support and front line functions before you take up the baton yourself. Senior consultants can expect to earn between £40k and £50k and there is no cap on earnings.



1. Successful outbound/proactive sales experience. 

2. Good written and verbal communication skills in English. 

3. A minimum 'C' at GCSE English and Maths. 

4. A qualification in either: A Levels, NVQ, BTEC, International Baccalaureate. 
5. Good computer keyboard skills and familiarity with Microsoft office or similar.
