Working as a Resourcer for Thorn Baker’s Construction team in the centre of Leeds, you can expect a busy, satisfying role that offers a realistic potential to increase your earnings over and above your basic salary. Often (but not always) an entry level role to the Recruitment Industry as well as our business, this is a position that requires your application of a variety of skills and personality qualities.

The role involves: • A lot of speaking to candidates over the phone • Screening candidates against pre-agreed criteria • Matching candidates to jobs • Identifying sales leads • Data entry – adding new candidates to our database • Account Managing our customers – up-selling where appropriate • Delivering high levels of customer service to both clients and candidates • Working as part of a close knit team.

The crux of this role is balancing the need to work at pace as you speak to our customers, using your charm and influence to build rapport – but also focussing on the accurate and timely completion of administration tasks as you work to meet fixed deadlines. Basically we need a perfectionist with personality! We’re looking for someone with great communications skills – both written and verbal. Ideally you’ll have some B2B experience, which could be gained in a sales or customer service role. The most important thing is that you are looking for an exciting and challenging opportunity, and are open-minded to develop your skills as you grow in this role.

Our Leeds team are among the top Construction recruitment offices in the North of England and 2018 proved to be a year of both significant investment and growth. We have a fun and hard working environment and have an extremely good name in the marketplace. We love to reward and recognise success, whether taking our High Flyers abroad each summer, awarding our people additional holidays, duvet days, coffee cards, activity days, high street vouchers and hotel stays, or providing Perkbox to offer you discounted personal shopping. Our zero-threshold and uncapped bonus scheme rewards you from day one, giving you an early taste of the prosperous living a career in recruitment can offer.

We are delighted to have been awarded for the third time, based on our exceptional levels of employee engagement, 3 stars from Best Companies and to have been named in the Top 100 Best Companies to Work For.

The Construction sector is booming and skills shortages mean recruitment remains an operational challenge for every contractor. Problem-solvers are in high demand and the opportunities are huge. With 30 years of experience and a UK-wide network of offices we have built a brand that you will be proud to become a part of.
