About SThree Group
Like all great ideas, four friends had a great idea to combine their experience and we founded Computer Futures because of the skills shortage within IT and propositioned ourselves as a business that really understands the sector. Fast-forward to 2015 and we have grown our business to become the world's largest Recruitment provider. We are now the only Recruitment employer to be awarded as one of 'The Times Top 50 Employers of Women 2014 and 2015'. We are a team of 2700 across 45 offices in 15 countries; we have great open plan offices in some of the most incredible locations such as Times Square, overlooking Sydney Harbour and just off Europe's busiest shopping street, Oxford Street London.
SThree want to be the most respected and highly valued international, specialist staffing services business.
"Our success and growth has been dependant by the quality of our people, the training we provide and the loyalty we develop." - Gary Elden, CEO of SThree
In Singapore, under SThree group we have 3 different specialist brands. Huxley Banking & Financial Services, Real STaffing ( Lifescience ) & Progressive global energy (Oil & Gas). We are looking to expand across our Banking & Lifescience team.
About the job
Your job as Associate Recruitment Consultant will be attracting candidates by using a wide range of media and drafting advertising copy for use on social media /networks, attending events, recruiting and through referrals. Once you have found suitable candidates, you will screen and interview candidates, conducting background checks, and matching candidates to jobs. Naturally, with the role, it is a consultative job and you will need to advise both clients and candidates on salary levels, training requirements and on job opportunities. As well as this, you'll use sales, marketing techniques, networking and business development techniques to attract business from companies. You must develop a good understanding of companies and their business is key, in order to build better stronger relationships with companies.
Ambitious - We don't want people who want a job. Gary Elden started as a Trainee with us and now is the CEO. We want you to be in charge of one of our brands, or the next CEO. If that fails, then you can retire on the commission you have earned with us. We have had people retire at 40 after successful jobs in Recruitment with SThree. If that is something you want, read on.
Determined - In order for SThree to achieve our goals, we need you to be able to achieve yours. We set our expectations high, but realistic. A job in Recruitment is tough. No one gets into Recruitment to give good news. There are many rejections faced in your early days and at times, it will feel like there is little return on the work you do. The effort you put in does come off but often a few months down the line.
Fun - Your job in Recruitment is going be the busiest job you will ever have worked. Recruitment needs really focused people who put their clients and candidates first and there are long hours, but it's about the ability to lighten the mood when things get tough and picking your team up as they'll do for you.
What skills are needed for the job? To be successful in your job as a Associate Recruitment Consultant , you will need to have worked in an environment where you have had to meet sales targets as a minimum. We are open to all kinds of sales but those with telesales/ B2B experience are going to be advantageous. It does not matter if you don't have a degree, providing that you have a proven experience in that environment.
