Our continued desire to innovate and grow means that we currently have an exciting opportunity to join our expanding Reading office as a Trainee Business Development Executive.

Your new role:

  • Working within our sales team, in which you will be mentored by our Regional Sales Manager as well as our internal L&D team.

  • To understand the recruitment process and what “good” looks like, we will teach you how to qualify candidates against live roles, preparing them for interviews and debriefing them after – following through to successful placement in a new position.

About You:
