Early careers in recruitment
Every day we help our customers – whether they’re candidates or clients – and our employees strive for success.
Depending on whether you are a recent graduate or are a working professional transitioning into recruitment, we have 3 different entry level roles at Hays, including: Graduate Trainee, Researcher and Associate Recruitment Consultant.
Graduate Trainee: A 6-month internship designed for new graduates looking to kick-start their career in recruitment. During the first phase of the programme you will focus on candidate acquisition and candidate management before being trained in client-facing tasks, such as business development and job management, to progress on to either a Researcher or an Associate Recruitment Consultant.
Researcher: A 180 recruitment role focused on candidate acquisition and candidate management. Supporting an experienced Recruitment Consultant or Key Account Manager you will deliver high calibre candidates to fill our clients job vacancies.
Associate Recruitment Consultant: A 9-month development programme for professionals new to recruitment. This is a 360 recruitment role where you will be developing and managing a portfolio of clients, as well as sourcing high calibre candidates to match clients' requirements.
Our culture is a meritocracy, which means promotions and rewards are based solely on your performance. You will receive regular, structured feedback during your initial development programme to help you reach your full potential.
