You must be able to thrive in a lively, sociable and competitive working environment and be motivated by career potential. With us, you control your earnings - the harder you work, the more money you can earn.

In this, you will receive a mixture of online, classroom and on-the-job training whilst having the support of our Sales Development team who will help you make the transition from Trainee to Consultant.
You will receive "masterclasses" from experienced consultants on all aspects of the recruitment process and as you develop your career, the training opportunities will continue with external trainers and industry specialists.
The Career Progression
GCS operates a meritocracy. This is not a workplace where the only people that receive promotions are the ones that have been here for a long period of time. However, the vast majority of our management team are 'home-grown’ and started their careers in our academy straight from College or University but have gone on to bill millions of pounds. They are proof that you can build and maintain a successful career at GCS. We are looking for individuals that want to fast-track their career and are capable of quickly hitting and exceeding their targets. The career path can look like this:
