Full Time
Established in 1998, Blue Skies is one of the UK`s leading specialist marketing recruiters, working with FTSE 250 companies and multinational agency networks. Times are exciting here - we`re rapidly expanding, having recently opened our new central Manchester office to join our existing offices in London and Stratford Upon Avon. Our aim is simple - to be the number one UK leading independent marketing recruitment agency.

We`re currently looking for an ambitious and driven graduate to join our existing highly successful Client Side team in our Stratford upon Avon office. With huge earning potential in the first year, unbeatable career progression opportunities as well as a whole host of goodies, why look anywhere else?

The Company

Blue Skies has become one of the strongest brands within marketing recruitment, and we`re passionate about delivering outstanding service. We pride ourselves on acquiring a special understanding of the markets in which we operate and we have an exceptional track record of truly understanding our clients` and candidates` needs and finding the best talent for our clients - welcome to a different, more personal style of marketing recruitment.

The Role

The recruitment industry has proven itself to be a career in which graduates can secure genuine responsibility much more rapidly than within a corporate environment. The role of a recruitment resourcer is varied and no one day is the same - you`ll have the opportunity to work autonomously but under guidance with real responsibilities from day one with entrepreneurial flair.

Role responsibilities:

- You will begin your career as a resourcer focusing primarily on candidate acquisition through social media networking, headhunting, ad writing, interviewing etc.
- Lead and new business generation and retention through direct approach - spending time both on the phone and meeting people face-to-face
- Once you become an expert in your specialist area within Client Side you will manage the full recruitment life cycle process, building and maintaining relationships, selling the role to the candidate and the candidate to the client, and seeing this through to placement

The Person

We`re looking for ambitious and highly driven graduates who are confident, outgoing and who have persuasive communications skills. You`ll need to be professional but friendly with great attention to detail, and be highly motivated by targets - a hunger for success and a passion for all things marketing are essential!

Training & Progression

Our intensive and comprehensive 3 month bespoke in-house training programme and working closely alongside a senior consultant ensures you receive all the support and training to ensure your continued success and progression at Blue Skies.
We`re looking for future leaders and love to promote from within, and want to recruit individuals truly intent on building a long-term career to be a part of our continued success story.


At Blue Skies we not only offer the opportunity to work with an expert team for a recognised brand with an excellent reputation in the market place, huge earning potential and excellent career progression/development opportunities, but we also genuinely care about our staff and listen to our employees, offering a range of softer benefits to promote the best work/life balance.
-Competitive basic salary
-Very attractive targets-based bonus scheme, both team and individual
-23 days holiday including a well-deserved day off for your birthday, rising to 25 days after one year
-Two-week sabbatical after three and five years
-Flexible working hours
-£20K club - if you post sales of £20K or more in a month, you`ll be taken out with one of our associate directors for a special lunch at a top restaurant
-Expensed iPhone 4
-Regular company socials including “Final Thursdays”
-Friday “Beer o`Clock” and early finish
