Recruitment Administration Consultant

Posted: 23 days ago
Place: Clapham, London

Evocation EFL is a Brixton-based recruitment agency for teachers of English as a foreign language (EFL). We have been covering EFL for ten years now, so we are well established. However we are still a small firm. Although we have nearly a hundred teachers at busy times, they are out working and don’t come to the office after initial interview. At the moment it is essentially just the director in our small office, so anyone wanting to be surrounded by people should look elsewhere.
The advantage of working in a small firm is that you can get experience and training in the full range of business activities, and this is what we want. You need to take on the day-to-day matching of school requests with available teachers, understand all the operational and marketing processes, and generally be able to support and deputise for the director.
In order to support the director in relation to financial matters, you would need to use Quick Books, which is straightforward to learn, but past experience in this or other accounting software would be a plus. A good knowledge of Word, Excel and Google Drive will be essential.
Our sales and marketing could be better. Maybe you can help develop this?
All in all, you need to have a broad capability for both detailed work and liaison in a speedy, effective way with teachers, schools and colleagues. You will probably be quite outgoing and you will certainly be precise and careful, even though you can work fast. You will have a good phone manner with a high standard of written and spoken English. You will be comfortable with the full range of communication – by phone, email, text etc.
Overall you should be an energetic, sensible and cooperative person who can think and work methodically and accurately across the whole range of business activities. Your personal qualities and skills are more important than your qualifications, but you will probably hold A-levels at least, and a degree is always welcome. The right person does not have to be the finished product. You will be trained in all aspects of the business if you have the right attitude and willingness to learn.
We will consider offers of part-time support but it would need to be at least two and a half days a week. However we would prefer someone who is full-time (or nearly).
Our busy period started in March and runs through the summer, so we would need you to start soon and commit through to September at least. The summer period is very hectic, so you would probably find yourself working particularly hard at that time. At times there is a lot of pressure. The first month will be probationary.
We will consider either someone who is looking to work until September or October, or alternatively someone who has longer term ambitions. If you are good enough to stand in for the director and manage the business when he is away for up to a week, then you should want to work on a full-time basis.
Suggested office hours are 9.30am to 5pm. The exact times are open to discussion. You will also need to take a turn handling morning calls which start at around 6.30am. (This can be done from home).
Salary is subject to negotiation based on your qualifications and experience. On a part-time basis, we will pay around £10/hour. A full-time salary would be in a similar range.
You would be entitled to paid holiday pro rata to your working hours, but time taken should be kept to a minimum in July and August.
Please apply with CV and covering letter. Indicate whether you wish to work on a part-time or full-time basis, and whether you wish to be considered on a short-term contract or on an ongoing basis. State when you are able to start. Demonstrate that you are suitable to be shortlisted for interview.
Please also make clear where you are based. We prefer candidates who are reasonably close to us.
