Founded in 2016, we're a small, niche boutique agency, which means we're all about relationships over making a quick buck and really pride ourselves on giving amazing service. Essentially, in our market reputation is everything (and we like to think we've built a pretty good one so far!) We grew our turnover by 140% in 2018 and whilst this clearly an exciting time for Hawkwood, it also means we need to develop our culture, processes and systems in line with this growth. This is hopefully where you come in... we're offering an opportunity for you to present new ideas and help us grow as a business but we also get that working in an ever-changing environment might not be for everyone! Hawkwood is an informal environment built on entrepreneurship and our team are self-motivated, consultative and creative individuals; who all wanted to move away from a 'salesy' environment into somewhere collaborative and non-hierarchical.
If you're reading this, there's a likelihood that you know what a recruiter does by now... so we'll just cover off this bit off with a brief summary - You'll be sourcing candidates (normally via our database, LinkedIn and referrals), before meeting them and managing them through the interview process. Most of our business comes through word of mouth, so we don't really do much BD here! Whilst we can't promise that will always be the case, we can promise you won't be hammering the phones making sales calls all day long. We're working in a really exciting growing market, so most of our business development is through building relationships with our candidates and finding out about the latest Tech / Media businesses launching in the London! We're lucky enough to already working with some of the top brands in our field, so you'll get exposure to some of the best out there and will be helping Hawkwood to grow through developing great relationships with our clients.
