What Hunted Says

Founded in 2011, Usurpo originally focused on the cyber security software market before moving into the Enterprise Software space in 2016. In 2018 we launched our technical and interim division (IT and IT contract focus). 2019 saw the launch of our Life Sciences function which supports VC backed biotech companies hire executive talent, on a retained basis. In 2021 we are growing all divisions with the addition of building a contract appointments team within Life Sciences. Whilst Usurpo has 2 UK offices (Reading and sunny Brighton), we serve our clients on an international basis. We have partners in 12 countries (outside of the UK), which gives us a strong unique selling point. All of our consultants can participate and take advantage of this alliance network. When permitted, international travel is encouraged! We are a people first, values led business. We pride ourselves in creating cohesive collaboration between consultants and divisions. We encourage our people to develop, improve and to become the best you can be. You'll notice from your first day that we listen to our employees, take on board your ideas and action what we agree to. You will not find broken promises here.  We hire adults and will certainly treat you as one. We offer a vibrant and relaxed culture with humane working hours. Our formal working hours vary, giving you time to see the kids, go to the gym or simply enjoy life outside of work. We are not a KPI obsessed boiler room – we hire people that know what they’re doing, and trust them to do it well. In a nut-shell we have high ambition, delivered with low ego.

Come & build Brighton business with us!

2020 was always set to be a growth year for Usurpo. Growing the IT technical team in Reading, growing the Life Sciences practice in Brighton and the enterprise software commercial team in both offices.

2020 has been an unusual year in all industries, not just recruitment. No business has been unaffected by COVID-19. We are proud that Usurpo got through the challenging earlier months of 2020 due to solid team collaboration, trust and determination. We have always been well equipped for remote working so this wasn’t a significant change for our working practices. 

The summer months have seen significant traction in all of our markets. We recently closed a number of IT contract positions, won new retained business in both Enterprise Software and Life Sciences and have a robust platform to accelerate through the rest of 2020.

Who your clients will be..

In an ideal world, you'll have previously been working with software vendors- but we know that having the right traits and mindset is more important than experience with a precise set of clients.

So we're open to established 360 consultants coming from any market requiring those transferrable communication skills and recruitment styles.

We typically deliver commercially oriented hires (leadership, sales, marketing, some professional services roles) for both venture backed startups and major fortune 100 brands.

Whilst exposure to similar roles to our core focus would be perfect, we're open minded- so long as you're bringing credibility, influencing skills and attention to detail to the table.

We are more than happy to have a conversation to see if there could be synergy, so let’s talk it through- no ruling yourself out!

Your commission :

£0 - £4,999 = Threshold
£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 - £19,999 = 20% of billings (for example £17k billings = £3,400)
£20,000 = 40% of billings for all revenue above £20,000
