Joining a team of 8 with over 50 years’ combined experience, this role will be specialising in Accountancy & Finance recruitment across Lancashire.

You will be working under the direct leadership of the Area Director and alongside some of the most successful consultants within REED.

Reed is not your average recruitment business. As the largest family-owned recruiter worldwide and a recognised brand name throughout the UK, our co-members come to work every day knowing they have some of the best technology, support and colleagues to help them achieve success. To be part of the Reed family, a company with genuine belief in investing in your development, then we’d like to hear from you!



At REED, if you have the will and the drive to succeed in a sales role, you will receive the best support and training as well as be recognised and rewarded for high performance.

On top of our uncapped bonus and transparent career framework, we are now rewarding our top performers with luxury holiday experiences, additional bonuses and the chance to win some incredible raffle prizes that include a luxury car.

  • Salary: £23,000 to £30,000 (experience dependant) + uncapped commission
  • Location: Preston (flexibility to work from home up to 3 days a week after training period) 
  • 25 days holiday + statutory holidays (including a holiday exchange scheme)
  • Contributory company pension scheme
  • Retail and healthcare discounts
  • Death in service and critical illness cover
  • Various extra benefits on top of all of these
  • Role Type: Permanent/Full Time (37.5 hours)

What’s the job?

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

You will develop and manage client and candidate relationships, to ensure high levels of customer satisfaction and quality standards whilst working against KPI’s and targets.

Our consultants understand that they are the relationship builder and that through high energy and fantastic communication and listening skills, they are able to find and then match the right people to the right opportunity. 

This role suits those with an ability to manage multiple tasks and a tenacious attitude. You will be ready to research, call and develop new business and enjoy meeting and talking to people.

If you are an experienced recruiter or even if you are only just looking to start a career within recruitment then I’m looking forward to hearing from you. Please submit an application
