Five Graduate from Redline’s Fourth Recruitment Academy, with the fifth starting this June!

11/06/19 Greg McHugh Head of Training & Acquisition

Redline Group, the Permanent & Contract High Technology and Engineering Recruitment Specialists, are pleased to announce the success of its fourth Recruitment Academy. Five successful trainee consultants graduated from Redline’s in-house talent academy managed by Greg McHugh, Redline’s Head of Training & Acquisition. All five recruitment consultants are now working within Redline’s specialist divisions.

Redline launched its Recruitment Talent Academy in April 2017 as a part of the company's strategy to continue its expansion of its existing 65+ team to 100+ by 2023.

The Academy success has enabled the technical recruitment specialist to secure and identify future recruitment talent for the growing business. Greg McHugh comments: “As a leading technical recruitment specialist, we’re proud to invest in talented people. It is our people who really make us who we are. Our recruitment training programme is for those joining us without previous recruitment experience. The Academy is a structured recruitment training programme, integrated amongst a usual workday. It is this combination of recruitment training and spending time with our teams to allow those new to our business, and recruitment, to build the necessary skills for success alongside building relationships with their teams.

Lasting 12 weeks and consisting of seminars, group activities and at desk training, our Academy teaches our new and inexperienced recruits the skills required to be a successful recruitment consultant - identifying and shortlisting candidates against roles, sourcing and briefing candidates, advertising and the use of social media for candidate attraction, objection handling, business development and relationship management. With a transparent growth and development structure, our graduates are now in full control of their recruitment careers, allowing them to get where they want to be in the business.

It's not easy – but it is rewarding

We're looking for people with passion. If you've got a strong understanding of business and people along with the motivation for sales, come and talk to us. If you're a graduate, that's perfect, but if not, don't be put off. A genuine desire to thrive within the technical recruitment industry is what we're really looking for - and some of our most senior members of staff joined us without any previous work experience. Clear development opportunities. Excellent reward and recognition. Full training and ongoing coaching. It all starts here.
