Job industry: HR / Recruitment
Corepeople is the North Easts largest, privately owned, built environment recruitment agency. With a proven history of successfully managing permanent and temporary staff appointments across a vast array of construction disciplines, from trades and labour to technical and professional specialists, we have built a solid reputation for delivering a top-quality, professional and thorough service to construction businesses and candidates alike in this domain.
We are inviting applications from graduate calibre candidates from any academic background to join our 2019 training scheme which provides the ideal introduction to the world of recruitment. Upon its successful completion consultants will possess all of the skills necessary to succeed in providing bespoke staffing solutions to the built environment.

You will work with main contractors and subcontractors, developers, surveying and architectural practices, as well as consulting engineering firms, who are operating throughout the North East, Cumbria and Yorkshire - businesses ranging from sole practitioners to the largest, nationally and internationally recognised players. Our teams are structured in such a way that each individual consultant has specific ownership of their part of the marketplace, and is charged with the following responsibilities:
Financial sales and placements
Developing business with our existing clients as well as new
Promoting tailored and quality methods of recruitment
Negotiating terms of business
Marketing and promoting vacancies
We believe that our success comes from doing things right by both our clients and candidates, ensuring that both derive a strong sense of value in their dealings with Corepeople. We require our consultants to work hard, but we teach them how to work efficiently, positioning them to maximise every opportunity for long term wins and ultimately, their own financial gain.
Working on the outskirts of Durham, our office environment is vibrant, fun and inclusive - our consultants dont subscribe to any recruitment consultant stereotypes!
