Bright Researcher / Office Junior (23880)

£Excellent package inc. attractive bonus

Hey there! This is just one of many top career opportunities ECM can suggest — if this job isn't right for you, let us do the hard work! Tell us what you're looking for and we'll start searching for you. We promise to treat your CV as strictly confidential.

Articulate, Motivated, Microsoft Office / Databases, Friendly team

Are you a bright, outgoing and motivated person, with good people skills, who would enjoy working in a role that offers interesting work, support from a small friendly team, and a good variety of responsibilities? If you have an interest in modern technology and the latest high-tech developments, this would also be a definite advantage.

ECM is a well-established, specialist technical recruitment consultancy with an enviable reputation. We have our own modern offices on the outskirts of Cambridge and we offer a friendly, relaxed but professional environment.

As a Researcher / Office Junior you will help to run the office, but you will also liaise with our consultants to carry out a wide range of database tasks to help to locate and interact with high-calibre candidates for our clients.

Your general administrative tasks will include taking calls, responding to emails and typing – so you should be a confident user of Microsoft Office (especially Word) and, ideally, a touch typist. As you will be representing our company, you will also need an excellent telephone manner and good written English.

On the recruitment research side, you will work alongside our consultants to interrogate our database and to identify suitable candidates for a variety of roles, making contact by phone or email to progress their applications. Note, no 'cold calling' will be required because you will be communicating with applicants who have already registered their details with us.

You should ideally be educated to degree level, or similar, in a numerate subject. It’s important too that you are self-motivated, ambitious and don’t need to be ‘micro managed’, although you will of course receive on-the-job training and friendly support from other team members to help you to quickly become effective. In addition to base salary, the role also offers an attractive bonus element.

This is an active vacancy and successful candidates will rapidly progress to interview stage - so you are strongly advised to apply immediately if you are keen to join the team!
