Recently awarded Silver status by Investors in People - an accolade shared by only 3% of UK businesses - SmithCorp have serious plans to expand further in the New Year... For highly-motivated individuals seeking an entry-level career featuring progression, huge earning potential & a sociable environment, this is a great opportunity to grow within a firm committed to investing within our employees.

Established in 2004 by the 3 Smith brothers, SmithCorp is one of the UK's leading specialist recruitment groups offering bespoke, practical staffing solutions within the Education industry, nationwide. Starting as a single recruitment company, SmithCorp is now made up of 6 individual, highly successful businesses across 4 office locations (Bristol - Clifton & Portishead, Truro & Paddington, London).

As an organic company, we firmly believe in recruiting only at trainee level therefore no prior recruitment experience is necessary or needed. Each and every member of staff - all Managers, Directors and even our COO - started their career here at the bottom and worked their way up.

As a trainee, you will be assigned a mentor - usually one of the companies top billers - who will provide 1-2-1, on-the-job training with you throughout your first 4 months. With their guidance and support, you become an expert in your market enabling you to win business by offering prospective clients an insightful, high-quality service.

In addition to the mentor programme, continual training and development will be offered throughout your career to enable you to perform, progress and develop within the business in the path you choose whether this be management, training or billing.

With a strong belief that our success lies entirely with our people, we reward performance with promotion and have a structured, target-based progression system which allows achieving individuals to fast-track their career. Most individuals reach management level within 18-24months in the business with top consultants achieving this usually within 14-18months. Due to the organic set up of the company, there is no glass ceiling to hit - as long as you are working hard and performing, we are keen to train you to reach the next level.

With the ability to earn commission from Day 1, realistically you will earn between £25-30k in your first 12 months with us - this will also include a £3k rise to your basic salary as you're promoted from a trainee to a consultant. Within 18 months here, you should be on target to earn £40k+ and within four years, you will be earning in excess of £80k+.

Many top consultants in the company earn a six figure salary however there is no cap on your earnings and we have a number of consultants who have earned over £45K in their first year at SmithCorp - what you put in here is what you will get out.

Consultants who consistently hit targets can expect invites to three all-inclusive 5* holidays a year - Las Vegas, Portugal and a ski trip as well as Monthly Lunch Clubs. New trainees are often on our trips. It's very simple - hit your target and you will be on the plane! Additionally, you will receive a gym membership, company pension and healthcare plan as well as regular team and company nights/meals out. We reward longevity with Rolex targets.

We have a fantastic company culture with a fun, sociable office environment filled with like-minded individuals. We benefit from modern open plan office layouts with sophisticated technology, wireless headsets and even a putting green!

What are we looking for in our trainees?

No specific skill set or experience is required - our employees come from a range of varied backgrounds including (but not limited to!) hospitality, sales, retail, the Forces and very often, fresh graduates.

We are looking for individuals who are:

- Highly driven by results, progression and/or money.
- Bright, articulate and confident.
- Competitive and resilient.
- Fun, friendly and sociable!

If you tick these boxes and feel you could excel here, please send through an up-to-date copy of your CV. For more information about the company, the industry and whether a career in recruitment could be for you, please call Yasmin Monday-Friday on **************

I look forward to hearing from you!
