About Us

We are a forward-thinking recruitment and talent solutions provider, with over 40 years' experience as the trusted recruitment partner of some of the UK's best-known brands.

Our people are crucial to our success, and our culture supports everyone, regardless of background and experience, to feel included, love their job and thrive!

Due to the continued growth of our IT Division, we are looking for Associate / Trainee Recruitment Consultants to join the team, with opportunities available in both the Contract and Permanent teams.

As a business we are huge advocates for a healthy work/life balance, offering flexible working opportunities, fully remote or hybrid roles, and an industry-leading holiday package of 40 days - 25 days holiday plus banks, with an additional four "ReLoad days" to use across the year, a Christmas closedown and a holiday purchase scheme.

Other benefits include group pension scheme, enhanced maternity and paternity packages,, a £1000 Employee Referral scheme, various incentives throughout the month / year, and a free Employee Assistance Programme.

We have recently moved into state of the art co-working offices in the city centre, complete with fully equipped kitchens, breakout areas, rooftop terrace, and prosecco and beer on tap for after-work wind-downs.

Summary of the Role

As an Associate / Trainee Recruitment Consultant you will mainly handle the candidate sourcing aspect of the recruitment process, with the support of experienced members of our team. Working within the IT, Technology and Business Change recruitment sector you will find it varied, fast paced and needless to say, busy! We have established relationships with a number of well-known clients who place their trust in us to find them the best talent in the market, so this won't be a sales-focused role, instead you will be involved in sourcing the best candidates for your vacancies, through LinkedIn marketing and headhunting, within a specialist, candidate short market. Your role will consist of the following:

  • Building talent pools of relevant candidates within our IT and Business Change specialisms

  • Attending meetings alongside Senior Consultants/ Managers to understand your clientbase

  • Supporting candidates through the interview process and managing the offer stage

  • Working across multiple sectors including Financial Services, Retail, Energy and Utilities

  • Building relationships with candidates and liaising with hiring managers to fulfil their requirements

  • Winning new business through lead generation

If you want to be part of a growing office with a fantastic culture then this is the role for you. We create a fun environment and offer great training, and opportunities to develop across our business, whether that's into more senior Recruitment roles, or delivery and Account Management positions with our larger clients.

Qualifications, Skills and Experience

We are looking for people who are IT literate, great communicators, passionate about providing a fantastic service, and driven to succeed. Recruitment or customer service experience would be preferred, however you will be provided with full induction training and support within your role.

We are also open to candidates with any previous recruitment experience, whether more 360 / sales focussed or with a background in delivery, and are happy to provide training to get to grips with the IT and Change market if you have not previously covered this vertical. Our team works across both permanent and contract opportunities for our clients so we can consider experience in either area.
