Job Role

AF Selection is a niche recruitment consultancy for the digital, PR, marketing and design sectors, placing people in agency and in-house disciplines. We have been in business since 1988, and work with many engaging and entrepreneurial businesses across the Midlands and North West. We enjoy what we do, and like to think it's why we have always had a solid level of staff retention and a sound reputation for treating people in a considered and thoughtful manner.

The role
There are many recruiters that do what we do, but not all work with such an eclectic mix of clients, which range from well-known UK brands to some of the most innovative digital, PR and design agencies in the UK. You will also work with some very talented and inspiring candidates that make your daily working life, interesting and enjoyable. You can guarantee that we won't set you ridiculous targets or expect you to spend time making wasteful calls - our business is based on long term relationships which requires tact, diplomacy and a sensible approach to recruitment. In reality, a credible consultant needs to have an engine for hard work, but at the same time can retain a sense of humility and have respect for all walks of life. On a daily basis, you will work on a diverse mix of recruitment briefs, at all levels, for blue chip companies to highly creative integrated and independent agencies. Our culture is based upon supporting each other, and working with values of trust and respect - as a whole, we work in a consultative and supportive manner which is underpinned by years and years of experience.

What we're looking for
We are looking for someone with one to three years recruitment experience who has a sound insight into the recruitment process and is looking for an opening where you can stay and grow with the business. We are not fussed if your experience has not been gained in a similar sector, but we are fussed by your empathy and integrity towards the people you will work with on a daily basis. Most of our successful recruiters have worked in different disciplines from Finance to IT. It is more important that you have an empathetic approach to your candidates as well as being able to work with a mix of clients, all with different aspirations. We will also consider candidates that are working within our fields of expertise such as digital or PR, and would like to swap sides and move into the field of recruitment - it's not that bad, we promise! We like to do things the right way, because it's the sole reason we have lasted this long and continue to enjoy superb working relationships with many of our clients and candidates. In truth, the vast majority of our existing client base used to work with us as candidates, which is a testament to how we treat people.

What's on offer?
Based in our Sutton Coldfield branch, you will be joining a business which is extremely well established, and has built a fine reputation for carrying our recruitment in the right way. You will benefit from working with a team of very experienced consultants who will add value to your career and personal development. Your remuneration will be based on your commercial expertise, and you will also receive a range of benefits which will include profit share, phone, bonus, health benefits, 25 days holiday (and you don't need to save 3 for Xmas) plus a few more little goodies that make your working life a tad easier. Please feel free to call Debra or Emma on 0121 355 0955 or e-mail your details to and we will respond as soon as possible.
