Graduate Trainee – Sales, Marketing, Research

Diversity. Work on a wide range of recruitment assignments for a broad spectrum of clients. Speak with candidates with experience covering marketing, administration, sales and management.

Quality. Be deeply involved in shaping the future of some of the most exciting organisations in Australia today. For example, two clients have relocated to major new premises, in part thanks to our work.

Challenge. Test your skills and find new ways to get the best results for clients. Have real input on projects. Learn more in 6 months than you could in 2 years in many mainstream roles.

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

Within the recruitment division we have recently won our largest ever recruitment supply contract and have several additional recruitment projects to manage for long standing clients. Consequently, there is a need for an enthusiastic and hard-working person to join the company at this exciting phase of expansion.

This role is to work for the recruitment division and will involve dealing with both active and passive candidates and job applicants. We have completed numerous diverse client assignments over the last 5 years and the work is always interesting and challenging.

Specific duties will involve;

  • Learn client job roles for individual recruitment assignments. Understand client requirements in the context of their business.
  • Learn the entire candidate management process in a recruitment business. Ensure best practice at all times for a quality candidate experience.
  • Review applicant CVs and conduct telephone interviews to understand candidate work history and career requirements to gauge suitability for roles.
  • Learn the face to face interview process. Conduct interviews with job applicants either in the office or at a location suitable to the candidates.
  • Research and directly approach potential candidates for client job roles.
  • Conduct telephone reference checks.
  • Occasional new business development to discuss the best candidates with prospective clients.
  • Any other ad hoc work as required, such as occasional social media marketing, writing blog articles and producing reports.

This is an entry level role, including full and ongoing training for a business which is growing rapidly at this time. Not only will this work be interesting, varied and challenging in the short term, but it will offer superb development potential for the future. It is expected that the successful person will attend conferences and events (both in Australia and overseas) and undertake formal/informal learning as an ongoing part of the role.
