Recruitment Consultant


Richard Powell

Bright Leaf Recruitment specialise in the recruitment of veterinary professionals, primarily veterinary surgeons. We are looking to hire two additional recruitment consults to join our team.

Whist the veterinary sector may seem complex to those without experience, rest assured, we're a friendly team and are very happy to pass on our knowledge. Our consultants all manage one large, key corporate client so its is easy to build relationships with your contacts. Consultants also take additional responsibility for growing our independent practice client base.

Experience in recruitment is not essential, none of the existing team (including the owners) came from a recruitment background. What is essential is experience in a sales/customer service background and the ability to maintain relationships. Consultants will be responsible for screening CV's, maintaining our CRM, processing applications, following up with applications ore and post interviews.

Currently we focus on the permanent market and that is where new consultants will be focusing their efforts and time. In time, we may decide to open up to the temp market

We are based in an old cotton mill in HX4 Greetland/Barkisland. We have ample space in the private car parks or on the roadside close to the building if the mill is particularly busy. With regards to public transport the 343/344 from Huddersfield and Halifax pass the office and we a 10 minutes walk from West Vale with multiple buses. As we cover the UK, there is generally no need for client or candidate visits however, we do visit the 7 vet schools of the UK annually to cover their careers fairs. These events, depending on location can require an overnight stay. Full travel expenses are provided.

Our office hours are currently 8.30 - 5.00 Monday to Friday with an hour for lunch. Consultants are provided with a mobile phone for the occasional evening call.
