Become a Trainee Recruitment consultant

At Spencer Ogden we don’t like to make assumptions. We don’t assume that a specific degree subject or personal background dictates your potential as a recruiter, nor do we think you need to be fresh out of university to make the transition into a successful career in recruitment, we welcome a variety of sales and educational backgrounds, building our team based on:

  • Attitude
  • Work ethic
  • Transferable skills
  • Personality

Joining Spencer Ogden at Trainee level as part of our acclaimed Consultant Development Programme promises:

  • Structured support
  • Constant personal and technical development
  • Self-dictated progression
  • An assigned business mentor
  • Clarity on your own progress and clear sales performance expectations

With full support functions from in house Learning and Development, personal development plans, a global mentoring programme and technical support functions to ensure you build the most efficient desk, we provide the tools to enable you to reach your full potential as a successful recruitment consultant.

At the core recruitment is without doubt a sales role, providing both our candidates and clients with a consultative sales service. A natural flare for sales, problem solving, and a target driven nature is essential to succeed. If you possess these traits we provide a unique and energising work environment for you to flourish in.

Consultant Development Programme

Whether you are fresh out of university or have sales experience and are looking to utilize your skill. For anyone who is entering recruitment we run a 1 year consultant development program. This is the foundation year at Spencer Ogden focusing specifically on the development of fundamental sales and recruitment skills to ensure you run an effective and efficient service for yourself, your candidates and your clients.

The year begins with a 2 week blended learning training academy and a subsequent tailored 1 year training suite with courses available running parallel with your progression in the role.
