We have an exciting opening in Leeds for a Recruitment Consultant to join our established team that specialises in Financial Services recruitment.
We are a boutique recruitment consultancy and have been trading in the general insurance and financial services markets since 2008. During this time, we have become the recruiter of choice for many leading general insurance businesses, and the great testimonials that we continually receive from our clients and candidates are the result of our hard work, professionalism and commitment to providing the highest level of service.
You’ll be joining our division that specialises in recruiting IFAs / Financial Advisers and support staff such as Paraplanners and Compliance specialists. However, you will be welcome to develop other complimentary markets as you see fit. We are honoured to be the ‘recruiter of choice’ for many leading FS organisations and as such, we receive many business enquiries, which means you’ll have plenty to work on.
Whilst previous financial services recruitment experience would certainly be advantageous, this is not essential. If you don’t have this, you will ideally come from a ‘professional services’ recruitment background such as Insurance, Legal, Accountancy & Finance, HR or IT. You’ll be a proactive recruiter who is engaging, innovative and driven to make money, and you’ll be a team player with a good sense of humour, who enjoys working as part of a small, friendly and supportive team.
Here are just some of the benefits of working at Aston Charles:
- You will be rewarded with an attractive basic salary, together with the opportunity to earn up to 30% commission. We have a very lucrative commission structure, with zero threshold for the first few months while you are building your pipeline.
- Whilst you will be provided with the necessary training and support, you will also be given autonomy to run your desk as you see fit.
- We run regular monthly sales incentives, with the opportunity to win prizes such as trips away, spa / restaurant vouchers and luxury gifts. In addition, we run an annual incentive to win a free summer holiday, which has recently been won by the most recent addition to our team!
- Whilst there is never any pressure to attend, we have a great social scene, with regular evenings and meals out.
You will enjoy working as part of a very friendly team, with people who are very passionate about recruitment. We have been described by our clients as “taking our jobs very seriously, but not ourselves”. We like to think we have a good sense of humour and we very much enjoy what we do.
You’ll be rewarded with a basic salary of up to £40K (negotiable, depending on experience), plus commission and an attractive benefits package including subsidised parking (where applicable), subsidised gym membership, private medical insurance and typically, 2 free weeks’ holiday over the Christmas period in addition to a generous holiday entitlement.
If you are an experienced recruitment consultant who is serious about a long-term career in recruitment, then don’t hesitate and apply today. It could be the best decision you have ever made.
