Phaidon International is a specialist global Recruitment business that focuses on placing rare to find talent into clients that range from start ups to FTSE 100 companies.

This year Phaidon International have performed excellently in what has been a challenging time for us all, growing to over 1000 staff across our 12 offices globally, and promoting a record number of staff from entry level to Principal Consultants and even managers within 12-18 months.

Phaidon International is now looking to add to our London team for January 2022 and seeking either 2021 graduates or individuals in the early stages of their sales careers looking for a change. As this is a sales position, we are looking for candidates who are goal driven, resilient and solution focused.

Role of a Recruitment Consultant:

As a recruitment Consultant, you'll be approaching hiring managers of companies we haven't worked with before and persuading or influencing them to give us their job vacancies.

Once we have a vacancy, we then approach candidates who may or may not be looking for a new role, and persuade them we have a position that's better than the one they are already in. Then marry the two together and present our candidate to the client and manage the interview process to hopefully an offer.

We only place senior level candidates so Director level or above, people who earn £100K a year or more so we typically must headhunt them.

What we offer a Recruitment Consultant:

  • £24,000 base salary and uncapped commission
  • Work in an incredibly ambitious company that is constantly striving to achieve more
  • The chance to prove your worth in a position that will challenge you in ways you never thought possible, but reward you like no other company
  • Progression that's based on how quickly you want it, and personal development from some of the most intelligent individuals in the Recruitment industry
  • Great company incentives like holidays, team nights out and prizes for high achievers
