Are you looking to start a career in Recruitment, or want to get a better understanding on if you are being paid correctly in your current recruitment role?
Recruitment is a sales focussed role, and like most sales roles, Recruitment Consultants will receive a base salary and the opportunity to earn commission based on their performance. The opportunity to earn commission is great, as it is purely based on your output, performance and success, which means you get out what you put in. The more deals you do the more money you make, and here at Navartis we have a huge number of Recruitment Consultants that are earning incredible commission.
We have put together an overview of what we offer our Recruitment Consultants at all levels, as well as offering an insight into the progression opportunities we offer, training provided and benefits offered.
What can you earn as a Recruitment Consultant?
As discussed above, Recruitment Consultants receive a base salary, which increases as you progress through your recruitment career and will also earn commission for each deal that is done. By this we mean when you place a candidate in a role, you will receive a percentage of that deal. This can differ from company to company, but overall it means the more deals you make the money you make.
Below we have offered the base salary for each level or Recruitment Consultant at Navartis;
Trainee Recruitment Consultant = £20,000 to £24,000 per annum
Recruitment Consultant = £24,000 to £28,000 per annum
Senior Recruitment Consultant = £28,000 to £34,500 per annum
Principal Recruitment Consultant = £36,000 to £43,000 per annum
What benefits do we offer Recruitment Consultants?
On top of your base salary and the commission you can earn, you will also receive a benefits package. A benefits package may differ from business to business, but below is what we offer our people;
Uncapped bonus schemes
Cycle to work scheme
BUPA Private healthcare
Birthday day off
Charity day off
End of quarter events
Company car (dependent on level of seniority)
What career progression do we offer Recruitment Consultants?
We believe in promoting from within and you don't have to wait for a management role to become available in order to progress. If your goal is to become a Managing Consultant or Business Manager, then we will build a team around you and coach you on every step of your journey. If management isn't the path for you, then our Principal Recruitment Consultant role allows you to run your own desk, generate new business, develop existing clients, and focus on making placements.
At Navartis your recruitment career is yours to decide. So whatever your goals, we will provide the support and expertise to help you meet them. Below you can see what an average career progression for Recruitment Consultants within Navartis looks like;

Recruitment Consultant (9+ months recruitment experience) More training will sustain you to take on more responsibility, develop and manage your own clients plus help you apply your recruitment knowledge and establish your business reputation.
