Life at Hays for work placements

About us:



This is the 'magic' of recruiting, and it's why we do what we do.

As the world's leading recruiting experts in qualified, professional and skilled work, we power the world of work by truly understanding our clients and candidates, locally and globally, and by providing deep expertise across a wide spectrum of industries and sectors. The trusted consultancy service we offer our customers, both clients and candidates, helps them to achieve lasting impact and it's what makes us unparalleled recruiters.

Last year, we helped hundreds of thousands of people across 33 countries find temporary and permanent positions. At Hays we share a commitment to helping people, companies and industries to flourish over the long-term.

We operate in a high performance environment and our internal company culture is fast-paced and dynamic. At Hays we grow our own, and describe our culture as a meritocracy, a high performance culture that promotes and rewards individuals based on the merit of their performance. As the leading recruiting experts, we have high expectations of our people and invest heavily in their learning and development. Our greatest asset is our people.

As a Recruiting Expert at Hays, you will develop and manage your own client portfolio through a variety of sales initiatives. You will source the most suitable candidates on behalf of organisations you’re working with ensuring a high level of customer satisfaction is achieved.

Entrepreneurialism is encouraged, and you are free to work with a high degree of initiative and autonomy allowing you to be accountable for your success.

Our culture is meritocratic: if you are dynamic, can build strong relationships with customers, across the business, and know how to get results, it's within your power to move quickly through the ranks.

On any given day, amongst other things, you are likely to be involved in the following:

New business development

Presenting Hays’ recruitment methodology to organisations / clients

Gaining exclusive business with organisations / clients

Proactive on-going management of client relationships

Attracting talent through advertising campaigns

Screening and interviewing candidates

Attending promotional and networking events

Delivering a highly professional business consultancy service in a complex environment - both with clients and candidates - will not only sharpen your sales and consultancy skills, it will hone your commercial acumen and experience.

And to further cement our ability to develop your long term career in recruitment, here are a few words from some of our grad placements:

Grad placement to Director in 5 years

I started as an intern for Hays working as an industrial placement student and rejoined the group after graduating. Unlike other graduate schemes upon joining Hays you are given real responsibility from day one. No two days are ever the same; you’re constantly doing different tasks and visiting new companies and empowering the world of work. It is a fast paced and enthusiastic work place.

We truly live our brand values and I’ve always found Hays to be a genuine team-based working environment where you share the highs and lows, the achievements and disappointments, with your colleagues. The people and opportunities are probably the best thing about working for Hays. I have had the opportunity to work with some phenomenally intelligent, driven individuals and feel constantly challenged.

If you work hard and are successful the opportunities to move disciplines, locations and even relocate internationally are unrivalled. A lot of companies will promote these sort of opportunities – Hays delivers. I have been promoted 5 times in 5 years and now manage our Financial Markets division managing 25 consultants and a P&L of nearly £3.5 Million

So if you are passionate, driven, results focused and committed to exceptional customer service, don't waste any time!
