With over 7,000 employees in 36 countries across the globe, Page Group aim to be the leading specialist recruiter in our chosen markets, specialising in a broad range of professions and industries.

PageGroup Changes Lives for People through Creating Opportunity to Reach Potential.

Page Executive, Michael Page, Page Personnel and Page Outsourcing make up the global recruitment powerhouse PageGroup. Join one of our teams and you'll be working for one of the best names in the industry.

As a HR Recruitment Consultant you can choose the path your career takes. Want to lead a team of consultants and see them beat targets every quarter? Want to develop your career internationally? Want to be the highest biller? Choose a career with PageGroup and you can. Plus you'll receive the best rewards, training, support and development opportunities in the industry.


We are specialist recruiters. All our consultants are experts in their industry and only recruit into their specific market, which gives our customers the best insight and widest reach during their recruitment process.

Based in Reading, the role of a HR Recruitment Consultant combines business development and commercial customer service, generating revenue by successfully engaging with clients, candidates and colleagues.

To quote one of our consultants, "I just placed a 60 year old unemployed candidate... we change people's lives, one of the reasons why I love this job!"

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 in the role of HR Recruitment Consultant.

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. And recruitment can be tough; you must be able to overcome adversity.

At PageGroup, we create opportunities for people to reach their potential. If you feel you've got what it takes, we'd love to hear from you.
