Why are we hiring?

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. The Life Sciences function was well positioned to endure the challenging, unforeseen market that COVID-19 presented. With a number of retained mandates in place and high value contractors we have managed to get through fairly unscathed. 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 have recently closed a number of contract positions, won new retained business and have a robust
platform to accelerate through the rest of 2020 so we are looking to hire effective recruiters who subscribe to our culture and company

Environment and hours

We value collaboration, good communication and individuals with a desire 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 say that we'll action. You won't 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 at 0930 - 1630 giving you time to see the kids, go to the gym or even just a real evening to do what you want to do.

The ideal background

- 1-4 years of recruitment experience. Should have billed primarily through new business rather than through house accounts.  

- Ideally Life Sciences experience although not entirely necessary – experience in another highly technical (science driven) industry however, is essential. Aerospace, Defense, Artificial intelligence etc. 

- Motivated for the right reasons.

- Articulate, well spoken and “switched on”. Not necessarily a graduate as university isn’t for everybody but this person must be well presented, intelligent and have the ability to hold business conversations with very senior industry professionals.  

Nice to have 

This role genuinely offers the opportunity to build and lead either a Life Sciences focused contract team or vertical market focused retained search team in the future. As such leadership and mentoring qualities are a plus.

Your commission structure

Your commission structure £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 over £25k
