New to recruitment?

Go on the career site of any recruiter and you will see words like ‘challenging’,
 ‘rewarding’ and ‘dynamic’ repeated over and over. 
There is no doubt that recruitment can be all of these but it’s often difficult 
(even for recruiters!) to identify who is cut out for it. 

If you can answer yes to most of these questions, then you could be.

Do you enjoy gaining new skills?
Are you a people-person?
Do you like a fast-paced environment?
Have you got a sense of humour?
Are you ambitious?
Are you good on the phone?
Have you worked in sales or retail before?
Do you like working in a team?

Mostly yes's? Apply below.
