The Role - What is recruitment?

In a nutshell it's helping job seekers find their dream next role, and helping businesses find the best talent, but it doesn't stop there. It also requires you to build relationships beyond the recruitment process itself, creating a community that you can genuinely partner with, advise and give market insights to.

At Morgan McKinley we are a team of ambitious, collaborative and down to earth individuals, who genuinely believe in improving the lives of our candidates, our clients and our colleagues.

The role is a '360 degree' recruitment one (i.e. working with both clients and candidates, nurturing them through the entire recruitment process and beyond), and includes:

  • Building your network of client contacts through business development activities.
  • Partnering with our key accounts across Financial Services and Commerce and Industry, and leveraging MMK's brand and position as a tier 1 supplier to the majority of the ASX 20.
  • Candidate sourcing using tools like LinkedIn Recruiter, Seek Profiles etc, and building a community in your area of expertise.
  • Consulting to your clients and candidates throughout recruitment processes; e.g. taking a job brief, identifying the best suited candidates for opportunities, arranging interviews, reference checks etc.
  • Building your expertise and brand in your market and sharing insights through attending/running networking events, writing blogs/articles, partnering with external associations.

What can Morgan McKinley offer?

  • Exciting and dynamic role with more time out meeting people than sat behind a desk
  • Work for a multiple-award winning agency with an enviable global brand reputation, and established and impressive leadership team
  • A competitive base salary along with a lucrative, transparent and monthly commission structure; be rewarded for the work you put in!
  • Long-standing preferred supplier relationships with high-profile companies across financial services, government and commerce. You will join an established business with a vast number of existing (and strong!) relationships and accounts for you to work with, meaning you will find success quickly.
  • Go Beyond trips overseas to Bali and Queenstown
  • Additional leave days and regular incentives such as high performers' lunches, 4 hour Fridays and travel vouchers
  • Monthly /quarterly team nights out, fresh fruit in the office, beer and wine in the fridge
  • Support and encouragement to give something back to the community, through our award-winning Corporate Social Responsibility program
  • We have a high-performing culture including fantastic mentors to learn from in your first recruitment role.
  • Industry-leading training and development, structured to develop you through to experienced consultant, with genuine career progression tailored to your strengths and aspirations.
