Training: the best investment opportunity we have.

Attend a Job Fair at a College or University and you’ll wait a long time before you meet a student who wants to pursue a career in Recruitment! It’s a Cinderella sector, graduates will consider high profile sectors like Marketing or Fashion, Accountancy or Law but Recruitment is not on the radar. Yet, according to the ONS, the Recruitment sector is twice as large as Marketing and only fractionally smaller than the Legal and Accounting sectors combined! As an industry we need to work extra hard to attract the best and brightest people. One of the ways to do that is to offer a comprehensive and professional training programme.

For over 35 years Just Recruitment have been actively training recruitment professionals. Both through in-house programmes and by supporting consultants achieve their professional qualifications with the REC. Many of those trainees are still with us, indeed Emma, our Operations Director, joined as a trainee. Recently we have completely re-designed the training programme, partly to incorporate the latest technology that we have been investing in but primarily to meet the requirements created by years of sustained growth.

The training has been designed by our founder, Jenny Wrightson, and is being delivered by both in-house experienced staff and Subject Matter Experts from our partner companies. The programme covers every aspect of the recruitment process and continues beyond initial training. Just has always believed in Continuous Professional Development and, since we became an Employee Owned Company, is now ingrained in our culture.

If the UK economy is to prosper in a post Brexit world then companies will need to hire and develop the best talent. We firmly believe that professional Recruitment Consultancies have a major role to play which is why we are investing time, money and effort to develop our people.
