Recruitment Consultant

Recruitment can be done differently and you need to let us show you how…

We're looking to speak to you whether you already have recruitment experience or not.

Finding someone with the right character/personality traits is more important to us than whether you've worked in recruitment before.

If you are currently working as a Recruitment Consultant or have carried out the role in the past, then great, you've got a head start! No doubt you've experienced meaningless sales/call targets and pressure to send CV's as part of those roles. We don't have those KPI's', we dont work to volume based commission and we have virtually no staff turnover we call that unique around these parts!

We're the largest independent provider of management/technical staff to the construction industry in Scotland and in 2016 we were named the Best UK Recruitment Consultancy' at a major construction awards ceremony.

You'll be joining us to work on an already successful sector within our business, dealing with high levels of repeat business and working with professional candidates and long-standing clients. You'll be paired to work with some of our most established Consultants, so you will get structured, thorough, and tailored training, to help you learn and develop.

This role will involve working within our successful, highly-motivated and close-knit recruitment team. As a company, we've experienced 5 years' continual growth, so we have the ability to offer you a long-term future. Our recruitment team alone is currently 30 people strong, sharing over 125 years of experience in the recruitment of construction professionals, so you'll be mentored by some of the best in our industry.

At Contract Scotland, you can expect things such as:

An ethical firm that stays strong to its values 👍

In joining us you'll be part of a company which has won several awards for customer service, candidate care, being a socially responsible lot and just generally for being a great place to work, aw shucks! You'll need to be sharp, self-motivated, come with strong organisational skills, and will require effective communication & social skills to build, maintain and enhance mutually beneficial working relationships. We don't cut corners here, so you'll also need an uncompromising attention to detail and the desire to meet the high expectations of both our clients and candidates.

You'll need to demonstrate your ability in what will be a thorough interview process, but let's start with your CV. If you have recruitment experience already, we are keen to show you the unique approach Contract Scotland takes, and if you've never worked for another recruitment consultancy before, please tell us why this role interests you and what you might bring to us as part of your application. You should consider attaching a cover letter as part of your application you might find that's a good opportunity to get your pitch' across to us!

In fact why not take a look at our company video and then apply, apply, apply!

In return you will be offered a competitive basic salary, quarterly bonus, company car, private health insurance, structured training, contributory pension, the use of a free holiday home and the chance to work with the best! We look forward to hearing from you.

Alan Shave
Associate Director

Joining the company as a fresh graduate in 2006, Alan has tried a bit of everything, whether that be cutting his teeth with the engineering consultancies, developing his career within temporary recruitment, sourcing permanent staff for many of the building contractors or helping create our international division. Armed with all that knowledge he jumped at the chance to lead our permanent recruitment section in 2014, with the challenge of growing the team and developing our offering, while making sure that the ‘Contract Scotland way’ remained at the heart of everything we do. In 2016 Alan took on the role of Associate Director and is now involved with all the fun strategy & operational stuff! His proudest achievement is taking the business to parts of the world we never thought we would, as well as helping some of our ‘newer’ colleagues develop into great recruiters.
