You will work with existing clients to break into divisions of their business where we do not currently operate, as well as bringing in new customers.

You will join a Client Solutions team of four who support the Consulting teams across our three locations of Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. We have compelling and unique selling points that separate Randstad from our competitors, which include access to a suite of HR tech products that enhance our operational delivery and thought leadership assets such as White Papers, our quarterly Work Monitor publication and our annual Employer Branding research.

  • Deliver on the national sales strategy through effective sales leadership
  • Win new business and grow existing accounts in your portfolio
  • Build and develop professional relationships at executive and senior level
  • Leverage your broad understanding of Recruitment services and identify best-fit solutions
  • Identify, prepare and execute successful bids and tenders
  • Represent the brand at sector / industry forums and conferences
  • Effectively follow up on all leads and share business intelligence with colleagues
  • Maintain and develop sector networks to capitalise on business opportunities
  • Lead Quarterly service reviews with our clients
  • Build a deep understanding of client agreements and translate them to operations

Along with the expected salary and commission structure that comes with the role, Randstad offers a hugely supportive environment where you can truly grow your skills and career. We have a social, team environment and we love to share our wins and our good news stories. We have a culture of training and developing our people, we have an excellent reward and recognition programme and we take a vested interested in your well being.
