Sales Careers at Sanctuary Personnel

Location: Ipswich
£16,500-£22,000 per annum + uncapped commission

Do you want to work for East Anglia’s ‘Business of the Year’?

Sanctuary Personnel is a market-leading recruitment and service delivery group based in the centre of Ipswich. In 2017 we have collected no less than six business awards, including Business of the Year, The Youth Pledge and Large Business at the EADT Business Awards and Best Client Service, Best Public/Third Sector Agency and Best Temporary Agency at the national Recruiter Awards.

The job:

Are you tired of working in a sales job that doesn't reward you properly? Or are you fed up of not being in control of your own business and unable to really control your own income?

If that sounds familiar, we want to hear from you.

Sanctuary Personnel is looking for Recruitment Consultants to work from our central Ipswich head office. We support our clients from across the UK, such as local authorities, the NHS and major charities to recruit health, social care and criminal justice practitioners.

The successful applicants will be managing an area. Therefore, we need proactive and self-motivated consultants who can manage existing and build new relationships with our clients and candidates. This will involve inbound and outbound communications in a predominantly office-based environment, but there will be the requirement to be out of the office occasionally to meet clients, candidates and attend jobs fairs, etc.

You will be a customer service perfectionist and your relationship building skills should see you support the careers of the same candidates for years.

Comprehensive training and ongoing support will be provided to help you maximise your potential.
