Recruitment consultancy struggles to recruit recruitment consultant

The UK’s longest-established estate agent recruitment consultancy is itself struggling to find a recruitment consultant to join the team.

For the past three months, Property Personnel based in Staines-upon-Thames has been advertising the role, but so far no suitable individual has been found.

Property Personnel Managing Director Anthony Hesse explained: “We’ve certainly had no shortage of applicants for the job. But the perfect candidate would be someone with a background in both property and recruitment – which means we knew from the start that this was not going to be an easy process. Nevertheless, for us, attitude is far more important than ability, so we would love to appoint someone with first class customer services skills, an excellent telephone manner and an above average ability to communicate.”

The role on offer involves all aspects of the recruiting process – which includes registering and interviewing candidates to assess their requirements and abilities, screening candidates for suitable opportunities, and identifying appropriate clients by consulting with them over job descriptions & specifications.

The successful candidate will also need to arrange interviews, keep regular contact with clients updating their recruitment needs, write copy for vacancy advertisements to attract candidates, as well as provide continual support to both clients and candidates throughout the recruitment process.

Anthony Hesse added: “The truth is, we’re being highly selective about the person we are looking for. We only want candidates who are truly focused on a career in recruitment, with the relevant background, skills and attitude for the role.

“They will need to live reasonably close to our offices here in Staines-upon-Thames and be educated to degree level or equivalent. There’s a basic salary which will be in line with the candidate’s experience levels, and an excellent commission structure paying up to 20%.

“We don’t work weekends or bank holidays and we provide 20 days’ holiday rising to 25 days over 5 years, plus we are closed between Christmas and New Year. We even give you a day off for your birthday!”
