Not Specified

Who are we and what are we looking for?
Macildowie are an award winning business who have won numerous awards for our Customer Value proposition and have been categorised as an extraordinary business to work for in the Times Top 100 no fewer than 6 times!
We hold a unique market position as the UK’s only Recruitment & Retention consultancy and we aim to change people’s lives by building great futures, one career and one team at a time.
Macs have a fantastic track record of developing and growing the careers of graduates and having hired our biggest graduate cohort last year, we’re looking to make further additions in September 2021.

Why would you want to join Macs?
We are passionate about the power of long term relationships and we believe that what we do truly makes a difference to our candidate’s lives and our client’s business performance. As a result our organisation has a long track record of growth and we have exciting plans to build again over the next 5 years. This level of growth has been the result of individual performances that have seen consultants win incentives to Las Vegas and New York and get on the property ladder within 18 months of joining the team!

What will we need from you?
We are a business that all work together as one team to deliver for our candidates and clients. There are no big egos in our company. Instead, you will be motivated by doing a great job for your customers and being a positive influence across your team to be the ‘Best Version of You.’ You’ll recognise the importance of pushing yourself and you will be open minded to trying new approaches and you’ll need to learn from both your successes and failures. Whilst understanding that being part of an ambitious customer focused unit of people comes with the potential for tremendous progression within Macs – it also a healthy pressure to contribute to the team and really strive for the one team feel we created.

What will you be doing?
On completion of our graduate training scheme, you will be find yourself working with a host of instantly recognisable PLC Customers and high growth SME’s to pipeline and recruit the very best talent that is ‘in’ the market, not just ‘on’ the market.
We believe in investing in the training and development of our employees to enable you to become a star performer today or a potential leader of tomorrow. You may have previous recruitment experience; you may not have any at all. We are looking to hire on attitude and aptitude, not just technical fit.
We like natural pace and people with agility that are able to think quickly. You will be keen to develop new relationships and recognise the importance of nurturing the broad client base we have worked so diligently to develop.

What will you be offered in return?

6 Months training – We’re not going to throw you in at the deep end, we’ll give you 6 months training for the market that best suits your personality, with regular support and coaching.

Defined market and candidate pool – You’ll be responsible for your own customers in your own specialism when you’re up and running meaning the opportunity to build relationships to last through your career.

Incentives – It’s not just about the amazing bonuses, it’s also about the annual trip to Las Vegas, the flights to New York, the flexible working, the weekly incentives and quarterly social events. (When travels permits ;))

Times Top 100 business – We are a people business so our training and development is second to none, be it at trainee, consultant, manager or director level, we’ll constantly develop and challenge to let you be the Best Version of You.

Earning potential – Everyone says it, but the bonus is transparent, fair and very achievable, it should never be all about the money but being rewarded for your work.

Retention – There’s a reason our Exec team and most of our managers all started as graduate trainee’s and have progressed so well.
