Michael Page is a global recruitment powerhouse with over 7,000 employees in 36 countries. Our established Maidstone team have maintained a clear and definitive presence as market leaders in our local region over the last twenty years, having successfully grown into two new disciplines and consistently grown year on year.

Our success is underpinned by a culture of putting people and teamwork first, and we're immensely proud of our reputation for professionalism and integrity. We are continuing to grow organically, with over 87% of our Directors promoted internally.

After an excellent 2017, we are seeking to grow our team, capitalising on our excellent existing client relationships and opening new areas of the market.


The role of a Michael Page recruitment consultant combines business development and customer service, generating revenue by successfully engaging with clients, candidates and colleagues.

The key responsibilities of a recruitment consultant include:

* Identifying and developing client/business relationships in a competitive environment
* Advising on and selling the most appropriate solution for attracting candidates and maintaining a candidate database
* Assessing and responding to the needs of each particular client or assignment
* Sourcing suitable candidates and briefing them on the opportunities offered by the client
* Managing the process through interview to offer stage and beyond
* Offering CV, interview and general career advice
* Networking to build business information that can be converted into commercial opportunities


We know there are particular qualities that make people successful in our organisation. Many of those skills are easily transferred from your current or past work experience - not necessarily in recruitment. Have you ever had to negotiate with someone? Had to adapt your approach depending on your audience? Ever had to push yourself to achieve the best result?

The ability to be compelling and persuasive, develop relationships and work as part of a team, meet targets and compete for the best results is what will set you apart as a successful recruitment consultant.
