Graduate Trainee – Technology Recruitment

Hill Start International Pty Ltd currently provides quality solutions to clients across two business units, executive recruitment and outsourced sales and marketing.

Following consistent and sustained growth since 2012 (during which time we have proven our capabilities in recruiting key staff for clients) we are diversifying to capture a recession-proof area of the recruitment market which also complements our outsourced sales and marketing division. This is technology recruitment. Consequently, there is a need for an enthusiastic and hard-working person to join the company in the recently launched technology recruitment division at this exciting phase of growth.

This role is to work in the technology recruitment division and will involve learning all aspects of both the recruitment process and the most in-demand technology skills to ultimately be able to generate and manage recruitment assignments for clients. We have completed numerous diverse client assignments over the last 7 years and the work is always interesting and challenging. We have worked with some of the most exciting technology companies in Australia.

Specific duties will involve;

  • Assist the technology recruitment division with the entire recruitment process. Primarily focusing on sourcing new clients and completing recruitment assignments.
  • Research a broad range of industry sectors to identify prospective new clients, client decision makers and prospective candidates looking to progress their careers.
  • Undertake general telephone contact with prospective clients to identify and secure recruitment briefs. Visit client premises to present our recruitment capabilities.
  • Speak with and interview potential candidates for client job roles as well as managing job advert responses.
  • Prepare and execute diverse sales and marketing campaigns with the Director.
  • Any other ad hoc work as required, such as general administration, producing reports, web research and supporting clients.

This is an entry level role, including full and ongoing training for a business which has maintained positive growth and long-term client relationships over the last 7 years. Not only will this role be interesting, varied and challenging in the short term, but it will offer superb development potential for the future. Initially there will be a comprehensive 6-week training program. Rapid progression to a self sufficient consulting role is expected and there will be genuine career opportunities for the future as this division grows.

  • Enthusiasm, determination and commitment to get the best results for clients.
  • Proactive approach to work with good time management to ensure projects are completed as planned.
  • Confidence to be involved in face to face business meetings and telephone conversations with a wide range of people.
  • A desire to take early responsibility for projects and manage client relationships.
  • Willingness to work hard and spend plenty of time on the telephone taking to prospective clients and job applicants.
  • Ability to use technology proactively, including social media, whether for research or day to day communications.
  • Eligibility to work within Australia.

The office is in Central Melbourne, accessible by public transport and is a relaxed yet professional environment.
