Recruitment Consultant - Legal Division - Tunbridge Wells.

Blue Pelican are a leading niche recruitment consultancy based in the centre of Tunbridge Wells.  We have specialist divisions which are all highly successful and long established including tech, public sector, marketing, pharmaceutical and legal.

Our legal division was established in 2008 and we are currently looking to recruit a consultant to manage the legal support desk.  This is a very warm desk (no cold calling required) which manages all non fee earning roles within the South East and London.  These include vacancies for legal secretaries, paralegals, legal assistants, legal cashiers & accounts, compliance, HR/business development and receptionists to name but a few.  So it is a very varied role.  

We work with some of the best law firms around Kent, Sussex, Surrey and London who give us lots of repeat business and we have a very established candidate database too.

Our ideal candidate for this post would have at least 6 months recruitment experience (either as a consultant or a resourcer) ideally gained within a fast paced recruitment agency.  Experience of any sector would be considered but an interest in the legal market would be an advantage.

You will have exceptional communication skills, both verbal and written, you will be confident speaking to both candidates and clients, and will at all times be professional and honest.  

Although some recruitment experience is preferable, graduates with a relevant degree, who are looking to break into recruitment will be considered.

We are a very friendly team and operate a hybrid working policy, good basic salary, comprehensive benefits and uncapped commission up to 25%.  We also have a clear progression route.  

You must be able to attend the Tunbridge Wells office at least 2/3 days per week and therefore you will live within commuting distance.
