Job Description

About Talent Quest


Talent Quest is a growing recruitment business with offices in London and Manchester. We specialise in Language Recruitment for various sectors, Marketing Research and Digital Media. We are looking for entrepreneurial professional recruitment consultants to drive the business forward and consolidate our existing operations.


Do something different! Challenge yourself and get involved in building a high end recruitment business. The return is excellent bonus and commission as well as a future stake in the business.


Role Description


You will partner with the Directors, working together to drive the business forward. The purpose is to increase the client base and to maximise sales revenue. You’ll be working on new business development as well as managing existing accounts. You will want to work for a small, entrepreneurial company, with all the risks and possibilities that entails!


-This role is a hands-on sales role

-High levels of lead generation through online and offline research and cold calling

-Telephone calling to gather information, contact decision-makers and sell recruitment services to clients

-Face to face canvassing and networking to build contacts and win business

-Resourcing and interviewing candidates to fill bookings

-Driving sales and maximising revenue generated


Person Specification


-You are a sales person, with a persuasive and consultative approach and a set of business ethics that puts integrity at the forefront.

-You can prove outstanding sales figures and the ability to win and deliver on new business

-You are looking to be part of an exciting project and understand the role requires a hands-on approach with high levels of sales through business development and candidate resourcing; as the business progresses your role will develop.

-You will want to be appreciated and rewarded, and not just a number in an organisation.

-You should be intelligent, resourceful and highly proactive.

-You should be able to keep calm and continue when things are tough.


You will be proactive, entrepreneurial, and someone who drives – picks up the phone, makes the call, pushes things through. You will be looking to forge a successful career in recruitment, develop your skills, and recruitment experience. If you find corporate environments boring/stuffy/stifling and are looking to be part of something ‘different’ then we’d like to hear from you.


Experience Required


You’ll be a sales person - a successful one - and we’ll want to see evidence of it! You do not necessarily need experience in Recruitment Sales. But you must have significant sales experience, telephone based. You will have a stable working history. You will work ethically, you’ll be tough and resilient, but you’re ‘nice’, easy to get along with and enjoy doing things for others. Your English must be to a very high business level both written and orally and if you speak another language, particularly a European one – that would be great. It’s not a 9-5 role, certainly not in the first year, so be prepared to work long hours, working hard and smart is the only way to achieve success. This isn’t just a job – it’s a long term career and project full of exciting possibilities.


Additional Information


There are generous commission rates; in the medium term prospects for significant profit-share and/or bonuses and career progression according to business and individual performance. Targets clearly set out in advance. We’ll discuss this with you at interview.


To apply or register your interests please apply online initially.
