As a Recruiter, you manage your own business and work in a commercial and entrepreneurial environment. You source candidates, win business and match the right candidate to the right job. Our 12 month internship will see you running your own desk, working within our internal recruitment function, and interacting with both candidates and internal stakeholders – in fact you’re pretty much treated just like every other employee that works for us. As a result you’ll be equipped with the skills you’ll need to succeed once you finish university, and many of our interns return to Hays after completing their studies.
As an intern at Hays you'll be given lots of responsibility and enjoy hands-on experience of running a desk. You’ll be given extensive training and support to help you become an expert and complete a successful internship as well as have access to the best tools and technology in the industry.
There's not one typical person that makes a good Recruiter…and people with all sorts of degrees and disciplines have completed internships with us. To succeed you'll need to be sales driven, results-focused, and possess an ambitious drive to succeed. Recruitment is hard work and it takes time to achieve results so resilience, persistence and determination is key. You need to be passionate about sales, people-focused, outgoing and confident.
You'll need to be approaching your third year of your Undergraduate Year In Industry to quality for our internship.
