VWA is hiring! We are looking for an ambitious, highly communicative and team-playing individual to join our temporary division as a Trainee Consultant.

Victoria Wall Associates is a boutique recruitment consultancy and has been established for 32 years - there is a true family feel in our culture and approach. We partner with a number of London and internationally-based firms to support with a range of hiring needs, including:

  • Business support and administrative roles
  • Private PAs
  • Operations
  • Marketing
  • HR
  • Finance, investments and accountancy

As a Trainee Consultant based on the temporary team, your role will cover different areas to develop your knowledge of all VWA's recruitment processes. This will include:

  • Administrative support including sending our compliance documents and Microsoft Office assessments, formatting CVs, answering incoming queries via email and phone.
  • Sourcing candidates through responding to applications and active searching.
  • Conducting telephone screening calls with potential candidates.
  • Conducting competency-based interviews with candidates invited to register.
  • Candidate relationship management throughout registration process.
  • Drafting and posting adverts on job boards and the VWA website.
  • Shortlisting candidates for clients' briefs.
  • Collating interview feedback from candidates.
  • Market research and analysis as required.
  • Other tasks as required.

With a longer-term pathway towards eventual Consultant status and management of your own client-base, this is an excellent opportunity for someone looking to develop their skills in a commercial and people-focused environment. Ideally, applicants will have some existing administrative or customer service experience, and be comfortable with IT programmes and databases.

We are looking to hire someone of degree-calibre, with a strong attention to detail, an efficient approach to work and with a warm and approachable manner. You will be a natural rapport-builder, and have a team-working and commercial mindset.

Core hours are 9am - 5.30pm, with flexibility to work beyond these hours if required.

Kindly note that you will be expected to work from our West End-based office twice a week (on Tuesdays and another day of your choosing).

The role comes with a competitive base salary up to c.25K, and eventual participation in commission scheme.

If you're looking to kick start your career in recruitment in a fun, supportive and team-spirited environment, we would love to hear from you!
