Graduate Trainee Professional Headhunter

A challenging, varied and exciting recruitment role, consulting with key industry leaders to proactively seek out potential new employees ‘in the market’, i.e. the very best available, rather than reactively working with ‘on the market’ candidates, as is typical in the vast majority of the recruitment industry.

The successful Professional Headhunter enjoys individual control of their career progression; skill development; financial success; and job satisfaction. The role of a Professional Headhunter requires a much more testing set of skills, objectives and tasks than that of a Recruitment Consultant, therefore the rewards are much higher.
