* We operate in a highly automated environment, utilising the latest technologies, and so you'll be confident using all the usual PC based tools, including Word, Excel and Outlook.
* Self-motivated and flexible, you'll be able to juggle lots of things at once - but there'll be plenty of support when you need it from the team
* Your daily activities will cover all aspects of the recruitment cycle, from searching and interviewing, to client visits and advertising.
* Responsible for both the temporary and permanent placement of candidates, you'll have a variety of team working and also individual tasks.
