Not sure about the first step in your career, but want an interesting role with lots of opportunity to learn and challenge yourself? A role as a Recruitment Assistant provides just that – with the opportunity to gain a broad range of skills to progress your career.

Our Wigan recruitment branch has a solid base of clients but are looking for an ambitious individual to join the team and help build its next wave of growth and expansion. You do not need any previous recruitment experience – just an appetite to succeed and learn.

Who are NRL?

At NRL, our people play an integral role on major projects across a range of critical sectors including renewable energy, power generation and infrastructure. We’ve provided technical engineering recruitment and contracting services for over 35 years, and our success is down to the individuals in our regional branches and support office teams – working together to drive continuous improvement and innovation.

We’re proud to be a Living Wage Employer and a supporter of the Armed Forces Covenant, as well as providing a range of training and support to help our colleagues flourish. Our company values of care, openness, integrity, accountability, commerciality and professionalism guide us every day – and have transformed our small family-owned business into a multi-million pound carbon neutral organisation.
