Ignition Driver Recruitment is currently recruiting for a 360° Recruitment Consultant, to be based at our office in Wednesbury. The Wednesbury office services a high-profile client across a number of sites which has been a long-term partnership over a number of years.

Do you:

If the answer to all of the above is YES, we would love to hear from you. In return for your hard work and dedication, we will invest the time needed to ensure your initial learning curve is more than successful, and that you are fully integrated into not only the branch team but the organization as a whole. 

Your own full UK driving licence is preferred, as travel to client sites would be required, but when based in the office you will be within walking distance of all local amenities in a thriving city centre. There is also free parking available, and excellent public transport links.

You may also be required to undertake an on-call facility to ensure that your drivers have a point of contact 24 hours a day. This on-call requirement is based on a rota, so you will not be on call all the time and is for emergency purposes only.
