At Maximise Recruitment we don’t like to make assumptions.

  • Attitude
  • Work ethic
  • Transferable skills
  • Personality

Joining Maximise Recruitment at Trainee level as part of our Consultant Development Programme promises:

  • Structured support

With full support functions from in house Learning and Development, personal development plans, mentoring programme and technical support functions to ensure you build the most efficient desk, we provide the tools to enable you to reach your full potential as a successful recruitment consultant.

At the core recruitment is without doubt a sales role, providing both our candidates and clients with a consultative sales service. A natural flare for sales, problem solving, and a target driven nature is essential to succeed. If you possess these traits we provide a unique and energising work environment for you to flourish in.

Whether you are fresh out of university or have sales experience and are looking to utilise your skill. For anyone who is entering recruitment we run a Consultant Development Program. This is the foundation year at Maximise Recruitment, focusing specifically on the development of fundamental sales and recruitment skills to ensure you run an effective and efficient service for yourself, your candidates and your clients.

Learning & Development

We think we offer a level of learning and career development opportunities that’s second to none.

Your journey to progress your career is clearly mapped out for you from day one, with multiple routes you can pursue. As well as extensive coaching and guidance, you'll benefit from training that supports your career ambitions.

Whether you choose training on the job, through attendance of courses and conferences or by studying for a formal qualification, you can decide what you learn and how you learn it.

You'll also be able to take advantage of the knowledge and experience of your inspirational and successful colleagues.

Whatever journey you decide to take, we'll be with you every step of the way. With us, you won't just fulfil your ambitions – you'll go further than you ever thought possible.


We understand everyone is different and have their own priorities and so here at Maximise we can offer various benefits that are flexible in nature so that you can come up with the package you feel best suits you.


We believe that the consultants in our business are the integral parts which make our business great, and we like to reward them. We offer a highly competitive basic salary which is then boosted with a commission scheme which has no threshold and rewards motivated consultants with uncapped commissions in line with the rate you agree with your client. In addition, there is the opportunity to earn gift vouchers, crates of beer and even 'duvet days' for those that want an extra day off!

Corporate Social Responsibility

Collective Social Responsibility is at the heart of everything we do, we nominate and support various charities, decided by you, throughout the year and look at giving back to the community through days on-site at various charities and through fundraising events.


Money is obviously an important consideration when looking at a role, however we also appreciate that a good work life balance is also key. We understand that life cannot simply be around your work and therefore offer a flexible working environment, many consultants take off to the gym at lunchtime!
