Ever wondered what would happen if a group of directors valued the work/life balance of their staff as much as their own? Usurpo work on tech based projects globally. Everyone (including leadership) gets to the office around 9:30 and tends to hit the road (or the gym) around 4:30. You'll be given all the tools you could ever want including LinkedIn Recruiter, job boards access, and a brand new CRM that was intentionally chosen to keep admin to a minimum.
Taking the Crystal Maze by storm!
Founded in 2011 Usurpo exclusively focused on the 'cyber security' software market. A hot topic in todays digital age. Directors Nigel and Dan are two of the most influential and well connected search consultants in the security market. Our security clients are typically 'hyper growth' venture backed US based companies that need rapid workforce acceleration across multiple geographies. In 2016 Usurpo diversified and brought in Director Damian Bird to enter and grow the 'enterprise software' market. Typically operating at leadership level for well established (often household blue chip brands). Mostly retained, project based recruitment covering commercial leadership hires and business critical, individual contributors. During 2018 'Usurpo Interim' was launched. A technical contract arm that offers clients access to interim candidates within the technology sector.
April 2019 - Usurpo launches our new website which clearly represents our core competencies, markets and our new, 'uber-disruptive' service - Talent as a Service (TaaS). www.usurpo.com
We value bright, ambitious people with integrity who often have an interesting character and a bit of flair. We aren't a micromanagement, KPI obsessed company (We dont even use them), so we only hire like-minded, decent people. We are great recruiters but also great people. We are big on communication and that means listening. Listening to great ideas and implementing suggestions and thoughts. We respect everyone that works with us and value your input. We strive to make sure Usurpo is a productive fun environment where our team enjoys time in the office and away from the office. In support of that we also offer: - Company Wide Trips where everyone can be a part of the action - Birthday's off in addition to annual leave - A closed office between Christmas and New Year - Free onsite parking - Cold beers in the fridge!

On hitting your quarters target we give you a 'company spend' which is a tax free amount for you to purchase anything you want. When you hit 100% of your quarterly target we will give you £500 company spend (tax free). When you hit 125% of your quarterly target we will give you £2,000 company spend (again all tax free). Do that over 4 quarters and that's £8,000 tax free ON TOP of the aggressive commission plan. Happy days!

£0 - £4,999 = Threshold (reset every month) £5,000 - £9,999 = 10% of billings (for example £9k billings = £900) £10,000 - £14,999 = 15% of billings (for example £12k billings = £1,800) £15,000 - £24,999 = 20% of billings (for example £17k billings = £3,400) £25,000+ = 40% of billings
