Account Executive

We are looking to add a number of Account Executives to our team. This is a front line role which focuses on making contact with candidates on the telephone to establish suitability for a vacancy.

Based from our large, modern offices in Kingston town centre, the role of Account Executive is varied. The primary focus of your role will be to provide one of the company’s senior team members with people who you believe are suitable for introduction to a client.

There is no sales work involved in this role. The candidates you speak to will have applied for the role you are trying to find suitable people for. The Account Executive’s role will also extend to matching people on our database to vacancies being resourced by the team.

This is an opportunity for a positive and self-motivated individual to join a very successful and established recruitment agency - the role has been created further to the company’s continued steady growth.

This role is entirely telephone and email based with very occasional client-facing meetings - excellent written and verbal communication skills are absolutely essential.

You will need to have the confidence to speak to people at all levels.

The ideal candidate will have the following key skills and attributes:

  • Customer Service, Contact Centre / Call Centre or Office Administration experience 
  • Excellent written communication skills - please ensure your CV is 100% error free 
  • Experience using Microsoft Office 
  • A polite, friendly and enthusiastic telephone manner 
  • Training will be given on the use of our CRM systems and databases - you will learn telephone interviewing techniques, recruitment administration skills and a solid understanding of our overall process.

The role of Account Executive is permanent and offers an initial basic salary of £22,000 per annum, plus the opportunity to earn regular bonuses.

This position is a first step in a defined career with the Ashdown Group. The opportunity to progress to the position of trainee Recruitment Consultant will be offered to those that work hard to develop their skills and knowledge who are able to demonstrate all necessary attributes and ability.
