Cobalt Recruitment, Recruitment Consultant
7th September 2016
Job Type

Cobalt Recruitment is a leading international search and recruitment provider to the Property, Construction & Engineering and Financial Services & Accounting sectors. We have offices in the UK, Europe, Middle East, Asia and New Zealand and recruit at all levels from recently qualified professionals to Board Directors on a permanent and interim basis.

Due to planned expansion and success-driven growth, we are looking for a lead consultant to join our temp and contracts team, which currently consists of a Temp Construction & Temp GP desk. We have seen a massive increase in demand for surveyors and construction professionals on a short term contract and interim basis so are looking to grow this team into similar areas of the business such as FM, Architecture and Property Management. Working with a wide variety of clients in the private and public sectors such as niche property companies, global consultancies, education, transport and health, this is one of the most varied roles in Cobalt.

Placements vary from 1 month to a year + and often need to be filled at short notice, so is great for anyone who thrives under pressure and can meet pressing deadlines. Strong, proven managerial skills and good interpersonal skills are essential, as networking in this relatively small community is key to building your contractor base. Previous experience in temp/interim recruitment is paramount for this role.


We go to great lengths to make Cobalt an attractive place to build your career and this is why we feature in the Sunday Times Top 100 Best Small Companies to Work For. However, we don't lose sight of the fact that money and rewards are the main reasons that the best recruiters come to work every day; that's why we offer an outstanding uncapped commission scheme that really rewards success. Together with a competitive salary and an attractive range of incentives and benefits, this makes working for Cobalt a rewarding experience in every sense of the word.

About You:

  • You will come from a Temp/Interim/Contract recruitment background
  • You will need to be ambitious and commercially minded; these roles are for people who want to progress their career quickly.
  • You should be entrepreneurial; you will have the opportunity to grow this desk and take ownership of clients with the support of a Senior Consultant.
  • You will be a relationship builder; the ability to engage with clients and candidates is key to your success.

If you have what it takes to work in a dynamic, fast paced sales environment, can demonstrate excellent communication skills and have the determination to get deals done, then please apply online with your current CV.
