Are you looking to start your career in recruitment? Or an experienced recruitment consultant, or manager looking for a new challenge?
At Rilwood we can offer outstanding career prospects for those with the capability and enthusiasm to excel.
As one of the largest independently owned recruitment businesses in the country, we can offer the benefits of a bigger business, including first class training and support, an established brand in the market, and a professional management team. But here you can still make a difference, have your efforts recognised, and achieve rapid career development.
Whether you’re looking to work to the top of your market as a recruitment consultant, or build teams around you and manage their success, we have the right environment for you to fulfil your potential.
As an established but ambitious business, we are always interested in speaking to like-minded people who want to succeed. Here are some of the main benefits of working with us:
But don’t just take our word for it – here is what some of our existing staff have to say:
I began my career at Rilwood nearly two months ago and have not looked back. After completion of an introductory course, I was warmly welcomed into a vibrant and high spirited team who have been very supportive throughout my training so far.
Coming from a manufacturing background, it was a daunting challenge to go into a field of work I had never been in before. But Rilwood took the positives out of my career so far and put me in a division I felt comfortable in to give me a chance for success. One of the reasons I joined Rilwood was because of the highly professional profile and credibility they have gained through maintaining an effective and attractive service.
If anyone was in the mindset of wanting to go into recruitment, I would warn it is not for the fainthearted, but would recommend joining Rilwood to any individual with the aspirations of being at the top of the recruitment chain!
I applied for a consultant’s position at Rilwood Associates having seen an advert on the internet. Within 20 minutes of applying I received a call from the MD. Following a 15 minute conversation we agreed I would attend an interview the following day. The interview process was thorough and I got to meet the owners of the business, the team I was being considered for and the back office staff. I was made to feel part of the team even though I was only at interview stage. Thankfully I was offered a position and left, the same day, with a contract of employment and a start date. I had no hesitation in accepting the offer.
I started a couple of weeks later and I arrived that morning to find everything was ready for me. Once again I was taken around to meet everyone and the thing that sticks in my mind was how welcome I was made to feel. My new manager sat with me going through day structure, systems and expectations. Despite having recruitment experience I was given full training and advised on the levels of professionalism I would be expected to display. This is where I noticed a fundamental difference from my previous recruitment experience. Rilwood Associates take great pride in the way it is portrayed in the relevant marketplaces. Consultants are encouraged to build relationships with clients and candidates and look for mid to long term gain rather than the “smash and grab” approach adopted by some companies. From my peers to managers and directors of the business Rilwood have an open door policy – this enabled me to develop quickly and start achieving results that benefited my team, the company and me. Since joining I have recommended Rilwood Associates as a good place to work to two former colleagues. They also experienced the slick recruitment process adopted and are thoroughly enjoying their new careers.
During my 5 years at Rilwood I have seen my career develop from trainee consultant, to consultant, senior consultant, to manager, to running a new division with responsibility for multiple teams. I have always had a clear agenda about what I wanted out of my career and personal life, and the best thing about working here is you get the opportunity and environment to achieve what you want.
My colleagues are some of the most friendly, knowledgeable and driven individuals I have worked with. The atmosphere here is lively and fun. I’m very proud of our mentality and ethics, so many recruiters talk about customer service, integrity, honesty but we live it and breathe it which leads to excellent relationships with our clients and candidates. Employees here are the beneficiary of excellent in-house training, career development, commission and incentives. We are continually investing in new ways to improve our business. If you are serious about making a successful career in the Recruitment industry I would advise you come in to see us and experience what we have to offer.
We treat all enquiries in the strictest confidence, and we are happy to talk to anyone who has the right attitude and ability. To apply, please send a CV and covering letter to firstname.lastname@example.org
