Graduate Trainee – Fire up your career

Hill Start International Pty Ltd currently works with business clients across 2 divisions, executive recruitment and outsourced sales and marketing.

This role is to work within the executive recruitment division of the company, to ultimately source and secure new clients to benefit from our exceptional recruitment capabilities. Over the last 4 years we have made a dramatically positive impact on all of the businesses we have successfully recruited for.

There will be comprehensive initial and ongoing training, covering recruitment best practice, advanced business relationship building techniques and specialist commercial knowledge (to understand specialist organisations and their recruitment requirements). There will be a chance to attend conferences and events, as well as specific recruitment, sales and marketing training courses. The first event we anticipate will be the Interactive Minds Digital Summit in July.

Business development within the recruitment sector is, in our opinion a truly unique career pathway offering exceptional professional development, deep job satisfaction and financial reward. The recruitment campaigns will be varied allowing a superb overview of business in Australia. We use cutting edge recruitment sourcing techniques and would like this person to progress into a genuine Business Development Manager or full Recruitment Consultant role within 12 months.

The office is in Albion and is a short walk from Albion station, as well as having free parking. We operate a relaxed yet professional work environment, so it is expected the successful person will be able to work under their own initiative, sometimes with close guidance and teamwork, other times using your own impetus to get things completed on time.
