We invest in our people so they can provide the best expertise and knowledge for our clients and candidates while developing their own career and building on the strength of our community.

You might not know what you want to be or do. You may have embarked on a career that simply isn’t you, or you may have recently graduated and are still trying to work out what that career should be. There is no typical profile or successful consultant at Hays. We employ people with diverse work and life experiences: from recent graduates across all disciplines through to highly trained sales people, engineers, accountants and lawyers.

However, there are certain qualities and competencies that are common among the most successful consultants at Hays: passion for their work, desire to build and share their expertise, determination to be the best, drive to exceed targets and commitment to exceptional customer service.

We are more interested in who you are and the attitude you bring to work every day. Recruitment is an incredibly demanding environment and the people who succeed are exceptionally motivated. Strength of character is what will ensure that you achieve your goals – you will need to be able to work under pressure, manage the most challenging workloads and respond proactively and positively to targets.

There is no room for complacency in a sales environment. Your exceptional communication skills will hold you in good stead to build strong business relationships.

Our company values determine the attitude, skills and qualities we look for in our people.
