Created for new starters in the recruitment sector, this training has been thoughtfully put together by employees at all levels across the Foundation team. It covers the fundamental knowledge, habits and behaviours needed to become a successful recruitment consultant in the real estate and placemaking arenas.

It’s an essential course that will give you three months of initial training which develops into a further three months of management support and encouragement. The training is 1:1 initially in a modular format where you’ll look at all aspects of sector specific recruitment, from recruitment tech and sector analysis up to candidate generation and interviewing skills.  You’ll get the opportunity to put your new skills into practice and create meaningful recruiting relationships that will help shape your career. This is a tried and tested initial dive into the recruitment world and has served us very well over the years, helping us create some amazingly successful colleagues!

For team members looking to make the move into a management role, the Foundation Recruitment Advanced Training Programme helps take that step. It is a three month rolling training programme that covers topics including motivational management techniques, understanding team dynamics, appraisal themes, business planning, management reporting and internal hiring and training.

Created by our knowledgeable senior leadership team, it gives you the platform to step up to management level in the world of Real estate, Facilities management and Placemaking recruitment.

During this training, we also encourage you to attend external business conferences and workshops to further your learning and skillset. At the latter stages of the programme, our Non-Executive Directors will be there to support and guide you on your management and leadership journey.


Aimed at recruiters who are working towards an Associate position and beyond, this recruitment training programme provides a blend of senior-level industry training provided internally, along with membership of various leadership mentoring programmes and external groups.

We aim to ensure our future recruitment leaders are equipped with the very best industry knowledge and practices to be able to steer Foundation Recruitment into the future. After all, our people are the foundation of our success.

The programme is specifically tailored to the individual and their intended career path and company role. This investment will enable you to play a major leadership role in the business. Foundation Recruitment’s UK Director was the first to successfully complete our Future Leaders Training and now sits on the company board.


Employee Benefits Package

We know your career in recruitment isn’t just about the salary and benefits, although of course, that forms a big part of it!

You might be new to recruitment, or you might have been in the industry long enough to know that it can be a high pressure, high-stress environment.
