Working at our newly opened offices, the successful applicant must have previous experience as a Recruitment Consultant working in the Driving/Logisitcs sector.

– Your will have a pragmatic approach to problem solving
– You will understand the legal demands of working within the driving sector (such as WTD, HGV License requirements, Infringements etc)

Role Requirements of a Recruitment Consultant:

– Strong IT capabilities (Word, Excel, Outlook – training will be given for internal systems)

– Volume People Management (360 degree, from booking shifts through to providing disciplinary action)
