A role in recruitment is incredibly fast-paced and dynamic, requiring hard work, determination and perseverance, but the results are extremely rewarding. As part of the Nigel Wright Graduate scheme you will undertake a structured training programme which consists of a blend of classroom and on-the-job sessions that will take part over a 6-month period and be delivered by the senior management team. Core skills and knowledge gained at university are developed and complemented with learning specialist recruitment techniques, business development, account management, customer service and negotiation skills.
As a Recruitment Consultant you will be winning business with clients and sourcing and placing candidates, so relationship-building skills are key. We are a results driven business and we will provide you with first class training, a strong brand and the support of your team and wider colleagues to help you achieve your sales targets.
In your first year, a remuneration package of up to £30,000 can be achieved, with this increasing in subsequent years. You will either be based in our Newcastle headquarters or our Wynyard (Teesside) office.

You should be eager to learn and be driven to become an expert in your field. As a graduate you will ideally have spent a year in industry, perhaps as part of your degree or be looking for a career change.
At Nigel Wright we will give you the opportunity to reach your full potential and be rewarded for your achievements. We offer:
