Blayze Group - the Opportunity
Blayze Group - the leading Recruitment and Talent Management Consultancy in the property and construction sector - is growing its teams in London and the North West. Having just moved to smart new offices in the heart of the City of London, Blayze Group is looking for committed individuals who can demonstrate good communication and sales skills and who have an interest in property and construction.
In return, Blayze Group can offer a comprehensive training programme, support from the latest systems and technologies and a clear career path with industry-leading benefits and compensation potential.
Why a Career in Recruitment?
The recruitment industry employs around 100,000 people in the UK and was worth over £31bn to the UK economy in 2014/15. Recruitment is big business and a major contributor to the country's service sector.
Recruiting is rewarding work - both financially and personally. This is one of the few industries where you really can fast track your career and achieve substantial rewards in a relatively short period of time.
However, while many are initially attracted to recruitment by the financial remuneration, the real rewards come when you help someone land their dream job, or you help a candidate get out of a frustrating position or poor career choice, or when you find and secure a superstar who can transform a client's business.
The satisfaction you'll get from helping people progress their careers and helping businesses succeed through successful talent acquisition is something that few professions can offer.
Why Property and Construction?
Property and Construction are big business and important components of the UK economy. Construction accounts for around 6% of the UK economy and employs over two million people.
The property and construction sectors are thriving - there is a great deal of activity across the country and there is pressure for the industry to deliver the residential and commercial buildings that are required for homes and businesses.
The government has ambitious targets for housebuilding over the next few years and continued support for buyers through schemes like Help to Buy and Starter Homes together with the fundamental supply constraints in the market will ensure continued demand for new houses for years to come.
Major infrastructure projects like Crossrail, Crossrail 2 and HS2 along with many road improvements and proposed developments across the Northern Powerhouse will create jobs not just in construction, but in planning, consultancy and valuing as well.
The property and construction sectors are vibrant, growing markets with lots of hiring activity - this is a great sector to specialise in for your recruitment career.
Why Blayze Group?
Blayze Group is well established as a leading brand in its specialist sector. Blayze Group has long standing relationships with most of the leading residential and commercial developers, construction companies and consultancies in the country.
A key component of Blayze Group's success is the people who work there. As a recruiting company, Blayze Group knows that talented, committed people are the bedrock of a thriving business - so it strives to be a great place to work as well as a great recruiting business. In addition to winning a 'Best Company to Work For' award from the recruiting industry's professional body this year, Blayze Group has achieved the coveted Investors in People Gold Certification for the way it looks after its staff.
Blayze Group is structured into a variety of teams, each with experts in their particular field. Blayze Group's specialist teams work across the entire development life cycle, from purchasing and planning to design, build and project completion. An Infrastructure desk works with clients in Aviation, Road, Rail and Civils, while the International desk extends Blayze Group's reach across the globe.
Blayze Group operates at the higher end of the talent spectrum - senior technical, professional and managerial positions up to board level. Once qualified, you will be dealing with highly successful and extremely well compensated individuals - and this is what you should aspire to as well.
At Blayze Group you will have the opportunity to work with - and learn from - experienced consultants who are experts in their field. Blayze Group's top consultants have earning power that is limited only by ability and performance. There is no upper limit on earnings and progression is based on merit.
Recruitment is one of the few professions where you really can rise quickly through the ranks and achieve earnings your peers can only dream of. Many of Blayze Group's consultants earn more than the senior professionals they are placing in large UK companies and global corporations.
Structured training programmes and state of the art technology mean that you will quickly gain the skills you need to be successful in your chosen profession. Once you have completed your basic training, the Blayze Group Continuing Professional Development programme gives you the opportunity to study your specialist sector in depth and pursue professional recruiting industry qualifications should you choose.
What's it like working at Blayze Group?
At Blayze Group a consultant's life is never dull - there are clients and candidates to meet, 'phone calls to make and events to attend. You will constantly be learning about the Property and Construction Industry, your specialist sector and the business of recruiting.
The recruiting business isn't for everyone and no-one is pretending the work is easy. Like any job, there will be frustrations and setbacks. However, with proper training and the systems and tools in place to support your development as a recruitment consultant, you can quickly progress to achieve the substantial rewards that come with success.
Blayze Group has recently moved its London HQ to newly-refurbished prime offices in the heart of the City of London. Living and working in one of the great capitals of the world gives you a marvelous opportunity that many will aspire to, but few will achieve.
While the work may be challenging, the atmosphere at the Blayze Group office is dynamic, upbeat and fun.
Outside of office hours there is an active social scene with nights out and team events throughout the year. Blayze Group is also an active supporter of LandAid - the property industry charity - and many members of staff can be found running, cycling or dangling from tall buildings throughout the year!
Who are we looking for?
You will be outgoing and a good communicator. Recruitment is a people business - you will spend a lot of your time on the 'phone talking to candidates and clients or meeting with them in person. If you aren't comfortable with this kind of thing, recruitment probably isn't for you.
You will be organised and be able to follow a plan. At Blayze Group we have refined our systems, processes and procedures over the years to maximise results and to give you the best chance of success.
You might be a recent graduate - perhaps with a degree in a Built Environment discipline (or maybe something completely different) and are wondering about your career options. You will be ambitious, have a strong work ethic and you won't be short of self-motivation.
You might have a successful background in sales but are frustrated with the cap on earnings and the limited opportunities for growth.
Perhaps you already work in Property and Construction but are unhappy with your current position, elements of the job or the management structure in your organisation. If you are ambitious and don't feel that your efforts are being rewarded in your current job, do think about the possibility of a career in recruitment.
If you are interested in taking up a career in recruitment with Blayze Group, in the first instance you should email your up to date CV to email@example.com - we'll be in touch to arrange an informal chat to see if we'll be a good fit.
If it looks like we might be able to work together, we'll invite you to the office to meet with some of our consultants and management team to see how we get along.
This is a great opportunity to join a successful, innovative and growing company - if you want to make your mark in a vibrant industry and reap the rewards of a successful Recruitment Consultant, ACT NOW.
