This training programme has helped mould new starters into successful money hungry recruitment consultants. see below a few recent success stories from the staff of Consortia.

  • A team leader billed £67,000 last month so candidates that are money motivated should be able to work out the type of commission that would give
  • One of the consultants has been with the company for 3 months and placed someone after 9 days working, and has already done a perm deal worth £8,000 GP
  • A consultant also had a client that rejected 3 presented candidates on a Friday so he spent all evening as well as Saturday and Sunday finding 3 more to present on Monday morning. The client hired one of the candidates and was extremely happy with his service so he not only earned commission but also secured further work from the client.
