Internship in Recruitment – International & Offshore markets at Reach International

Where: North West England

Deadline: June 14, 2017

Type: Placement Year

View more

  • Are you a student or recent graduate interested in an internship and a career in recruitment utilising your skills?
  • Do you have excellent communication skills and the drive, determination and resilience to succeed in an extremely challenging, fast moving and results-based environment?
  • Naturally competitive, with the confidence and credibility to communicate at a senior level, do you strive to be the best at what you do?
  • Do you want to use your skills in a professional, recruitment sales environment?

The ideal intern will be motivated by exceeding targets and being pushed outside their comfort zone, with the ability to demonstrate the competencies required for a career in sales. A keen interest in international travel and overseas destinations and/or languages would be an advantage, (as would some previous business to business telephone sales experience) but these are not essential.

We are seeking students/recent graduates to join our successful International and Offshore teams as Intern Recruitment Consultants. The role of a recruitment consultant is fast paced and pressurised – involving sales, account management, business development, candidate generation and the management of the recruitment lifecycle on behalf of both our clients and candidates. No two days are ever the same and recruitment consultants are constantly challenged in their ability to beat set targets, bring on new business and generate revenue. Please note that Recruitment is not HR, it is 100% sales focused.

If so Reach International could be for you.

As part of its exciting expansion plans, Reach International has recently moved into sizeable Grade A city centre offices based in the heart of Manchester’s Central Business District. This presents fantastic opportunities to become part of a growing recruitment business whilst completing your studies and taking your professional career to that next level. We can provide excellent training, a clear career path limited only by your potential, an entrepreneurial and empowering environment as well as a market leading bonus scheme with outstanding earning potential.

Reach International

Reach International is a market leading, professional recruitment group specialising in the placement of accountancy, finance, financial services and banking professionals, from Newly Qualified to Partner level, exclusively into offshore and international locations. From the Channel Islands to the Caribbean, Australia to the UAE, or Singapore to Russia, we cover the globe!

We have built a strong reputation for our professional approach to recruitment and exceptional service delivery, focusing on the recruitment needs of clients whilst balancing those with the career aspirations of candidates.

We work in partnership, across the world, with the Big 4 / Top 20 accountancy firms, multinational Blue Chips and leading financial services institutions, together with the smaller independents and niche boutiques.

Reach International is a fast growing, recruitment consultancy whose ambitious plans and continued success depends upon our ability to attract, develop and retain top talent in each of our specialist offshore and international divisions.
