    Are you someone who is extremely goal-orientated (motivated by striving for new heights) and who could be described as a person who is motivated by acts of service?  Ever wondered if you have truly found your career calling that combines both of these elements of your persona into a role that gets you up in the morning?

    AltGen is an incredibly unique company, and well I’m sure you hear companies say that all the time about themselves. But we ARE different... Our team is extremely goal-orientated, we focus on results, but we do it strategically – we work smart and play hard. We love using BI to make big decisions, but we also realise that we are the sum of our parts, each and every one of our team members has a crucial role to play in our successes. And what truly sets us apart is the meaning we find in the work we do – besides supporting global net-zero targets through driving clean MW to the African grid (we do this through the renewable skills we place for our clients projects), we fundamentally care about the candidates we work with – we see ourselves as their personal career coaches. We form long lasting bonds with the people we come into contact with – in fact our business was built on relationships.

    Enough about us, let's talk about you! You’ll need at least 2 years of experience in sales or recruitment and to be armed with a bachelor’s degree to survive in this jungle. Your primary mission would be to source and connect exceptional candidates to our clients. This involves utilizing various communication channels to engage candidates and build an extensive talent network.

    We're on the hunt for a Talent Consultant who gets us. Someone energised and hungry for excellence. Our ideal addition to the team must be a MS Office wizard, a recruitment fanatic, and have exceptional communication skills. You’ll be working in an open-plan office and so ability to banter is a must. But you also have to care deeply about meeting the SDG goals, in fact it has to run through your blood. Last but not least, you must have an eagle eye for detail – if you have used the phrase “quality over quantity” a few times in the last 6 months, you are going to fit right in with us.

    So, if you see yourself as an enabler, a catalyst for change – then you are very likely the type of person who will thrive at AltGen. P.S. We suggest you get a glimpse of who we are here!

    Our benefits package includes:

    • Comprehensive training and induction program
    • Continuous focus on your personal and professional growth
    • Regular team-building activities to keep the camaraderie alive
    • Opportunities for on-site client visits to gain real industry insights
    • A competitive base salary with lucrative commission structures
    • Birthday leave because you deserve a day off on your special day
    • A hybrid work environment (based on seniority and role)

    Your commission-based earnings should, at a minimum, match or double your annual base salary.
