About the opportunity

Seen us advertise before? Get used to it! As a recruitment agency we are constantly recruiting on behalf of our amazing clients as well as for our own internal roles. We are growing, proud of it, and are now on the lookout for our next batch of superstars to join our team as entry-level Sales & Recruitment Executives. These are full-time positions based at our Melbourne CBD office on Lonsdale Street.

In a nutshell, as a Sales & Recruitment Executive at EO, you'll be selling our range of amazing recruitment solutions, over the phone, to clients from multiple locations and industries across Australia. 

With the Employment Office model, our clients get full transparency and are bought in to what we do. That starts with you. Your days will be primarily filled with identifying new and future clients - calling to engage with them and articulating the value we deliver. From there you bring in a specialist from one of our in-house advertising, shortlisting, or recruitment software teams, to explain our methods and the benefits we can offer them. Then together, you'll close the sale. Job done? Not quite! You'll then play an integral part in account management and ensuring ongoing client delight in our service offering. 

Why start a sales and recruitment career with EO?

Any successful business person, leader or entrepreneur will tell you the most critical skill you can have is the ability to connect, engage and influence people. Countless senior or successful professionals in all types of roles have started out as Salespeople, but what matters - whether you're at the start of your career or seeking to make your mark - is where you do it.

EO gives you the opportunity to quickly develop excellent sales, commercial, and business skills and use these to have a real impact in acquiring new clients for our business. You'll learn from the best in their field and will work in an environment that will set you up for future success. That being said, we can't make it happen for you; your work ethic and drive is up to you. You'll need to earn it and we'll be honest - it's bloody hard. But when you do, you will be recognised and rewarded, and whether you stay with us for one year or ten, you'll leave with a great story to tell.

In return, we ask that you are articulate with the confidence, ability and willingness to instigate telephone contact with senior business people that are advertising for staff. This will be crucial to your success. You also need KIPPA - keenness, intelligence, persistence and attitude - in bucketloads.

You don't need any formal qualifications, however any experience working in a business environment will be beneficial, as your primary contacts will be HR Managers and senior business leaders (the key decision makers within a business!).
