Our Technical Training

We are only as good as our employees.

With this in mind, J People invests in a structured and supportive training process to enable our recruitment consultants to achieve.

Junior Consultants can expect their first few months to go like this...

First 3 days Group training with your new colleagues
Up to month 2 1-on-1 sessions with our in-house training manager covering theory and role play leading up to your first candidate placement. We believe in learning by doing; that is why our trainees work a desk alongside their training
By your 3rd month

With the support of your team, along with tailored training, you can expect to make your first deal by the 3rd month, making thousands in revenue and commission for you. 


In the IT world, technical training is critical. To ensure that our consultants keep up-to-date, we hold regular sessions on the latest technology tools, software environments and language iterations. 

You career with J People

J People offers two main career progression routes; senior/principal consultancy and management.

Recruitment consultants who are driven by financial rewards and show a natural affinity for understanding the needs of their clients generally remain in consultancy, moving into the Senior Consultant and Principal Consultant role over the course of 5 years.

Principal Consultants receive one of the highest base salaries in the company (even without commission) and benefit from less working hours, more holiday and greater professional freedom, but there is also more pressure to achieve.

The other route is managerial, consultants who excel in leading and motivating others usually move into management. The first step into the Team Leader role involves taking charge of 5-6 consultants and is obtainable within one year of joining as a Junior Consultant.

A Team Leader continues to be eligible for uncapped earnings while gaining management experience but, as a result, needs to balance team management duties with candidate placements. Despite this new responsibility, our culture leans towards an informal management style, where the Team Leader acts more like a guide.

Those who continue to show a talent for people management move into senior management and take on part responsibility of the day-to-day running of the company. They contribute to important business decisions that have a direct impact on the future of J People.

The Sales Manager is one of the final steps within the company and entails acting as a port of call in the absence of the Managing Director. They get involved in all of the deals, lead coaching, arrange KPIs, set targets and more.

Neither the Principal Consultant or Sales Manager route are binding; those who exhibit the necessary skills can arrange to suit their focus.

We are also constantly on the lookout for employees with other talents in areas like internal training, operations, marketing and other back-office roles.

Accelerated Career Development

The positive impact of our training is clear in the rapid progression of our consultants and over the next couple of years we are looking to appoint another 6-7 Team Leaders and 1-2 senior management members from within the company. Our continued growth means there is room for accelerated career development. For example, our most senior Sales Manager began their career as a trainee consultant and became J People’s second-most senior manager within three years.
