About the role

Consultant – Public Sector

Salary £30-£60k basic salary / uncapped commission scheme

Location:  Horsforth, Leeds, LS18 4BH (potential to consider remote working arrangement)

Keywords:  Business Development / Sales / Recruitment / Public Sector / Digital / ICT / Interim / Transformation

NHS Procurement and Crown Commercial Services (CCS) are two organisations that have come together to form a new work force alliance. We have recently won a place on the Non Clinical, Temporary and Fixed Term Staff Framework for this new alliance which includes; the NHS and all UK public sector bodies, such as local government, Universities, Charities, Blue Light Services and Central Government. This framework win along with the significant growth we have achieved in recent years means we are keen to continue our development and reach across the public sector.

Key to this, is the appointment of a highly experienced Consultant / Manager within the Public Sector Team.  This is a crucial position for us to build our brand across our 3 key areas of Local Government, Central Government and the NHS, working with existing resourcing, bid development and marketing teams to identify opportunities and deliver Contract and Fixed Term Staff to Public Sector departments.

We are looking to hire an experienced Recruitment Consultant or Manager with considerable experience of providing interim and contract recruitment solutions to the public sector, with experience in utilising the Non Clinical framework or other compliant procurement routes.  Proven experience in this sector is key as is the ability to maximise our presence on the framework.

Reporting into our Public Sector Director, you will play a key role in our offering and lead on the delivery of some of the most high profile projects into one or more of our key areas.  As a result you will have a direct impact on the quality of public services we all need and use every day.  We are looking for someone with the drive and ambition to build a team of your own so this would suit someone with previous experience leading sales and delivery teams, or someone with the ability and desire to do so in the future.

Consultants can be based anywhere in the UK as although we have a functioning office in Horsforth, Leeds our expectations are that this role will be filled by an experienced, self-motivated Recruiter that may live anywhere in the UK.
