Students & graduates
The recruitment industry in the UK is growing and recent research has highlighted that by 2015/16 total industry growth of over 25% is completely realistic. This UK industry is currently worth around £26.5 billion and over 64,000 consultants are employed in the UK alone; a number which is increasing. So, what better career path could you choose?
We look for final year students who have a keen interest in the recruitment industry and are exceptionally motivated and driven to succeed.
We offer a paid internship to coincide with your final year university studies. Our interns integrate into a specific team to:
- Work on live consultant assignments
- Start to become an expert within our markets
- Search for skilled candidates on social media platforms
- Develop your communication and questioning techniques by qualifying candidates over the telephone
For those who demonstrate the qualities we look for in a Nigel Wright consultant during their internship, there will be the opportunity to join our Graduate Scheme once they complete their studies.
From day one you will join a specific team that will enable you to become an expert in your sector. Your first three months are split between class room based training and on the job learning. We believe the best way to become a successful recruitment consultant is by doing the job and immersing yourself in your market.
You will be surrounded by likeminded individuals, all driven by wanting to be the best in the industry. Your manager will provide support and continual mentoring and you will be given responsibility for live assignments to work on straight away.
We offer an extremely competitive graduate package. For example, our Newcastle office graduate scheme includes:
- A basic starting salary of £20,000
- Immediate qualification into the Nigel Wright bonus scheme
- A £4,000 car allowance after a qualifying period
- A 15% increase on your basic salary once you have achieved £100,000 of billing
So, successful graduates normally have guaranteed earnings of £27,000 by the end of their first year, with total earnings often rising to between £35,000-£40,000 by the end of their 2nd year
