Permanents Recruitment Consultant

Reed Edinburgh are looking for a Recruitment Consultant to join their growing Legal team.

  • Job Title: Permanents Recruitment Consultant
  • Salary: £20,000 – £23,000 (plus uncapped commission)
  • Job Type: Permanent, Full Time
  • Location: Edinburgh (we offer the opportunity to work from the office and home)

Back in deepest, darkest lockdown, we decided to set up Reed’s Legal Recruitment hub for Scotland…what a journey it has been! Going from relatively unknown territory, to hands down one of the busiest desks in the region, in the space of just 9 months. We’ve worked with some truly fantastic candidates and clients and have even extended our reach into the North East & Yorkshire.

We are now looking to grow the team – so if you fancy being the lucky person who gets to take on a BOOMING desk with over 60 live vacancies to work on right away, please get in touch today.

You don’t need to be experienced in recruitment! The role would be great for someone with experience looking for a new challenge but equally, would suit a recent graduate looking for that first step into the world of recruitment.
You’ll be joining the absolute market-leading agency across the UK, have the opportunity to develop and progress in your career with our award-winning training and, best of all, get to work with a great bunch of people at Reed in Edinburgh. 

This is a varied and challenging role requiring someone resilient and determined to succeed. You will be interacting with business clients and prospective candidates on a daily basis and using your own initiative to gain new business. Day to day the role includes:

  • Targeted business development, including making outbound calls
  • Attending meetings with business clients
  • Sourcing suitable candidates for vacancies
  • Building and maintaining relationships with candidates and clients
  • Working to targets and KPIs

What Reed offer:

  • Uncapped commission based on your performance & other performance incentives
  • Structured induction and training throughout your career
  • Powerful bespoke database with access to millions of candidates
  • Recognised brand with 60 years in business
  • Health care plan, gym discounts and wellbeing support
  • Personal development fund of up-to £500 for a course of your choice
  • Sponsorship for professional qualifications
  • Ongoing learning including the opportunity to join our Management Academy
  • Bonus to salary conversion – REED provides increased financial security to high performers by allowing them to increase their base salary
  • Paid sabbaticals at 5,10,15, 20 years and so forth
  • Moving home leave 
  • Spotlight and Star Awards
  • And more….

We need the right person. The service we provide to our clients is really important to us. If you like to do things right, love working with people, and will work hard to achieve what you want, then we’d like to hear from you.


Join Reed and help us achieve our purpose of improving lives through work.
