Welcome To TalentBase!

We’re a tech recruitment start-up founded in 2017 by two guys fed up of technology recruitment having a dirty name. We are very much financially secure, have offices in WeWork and have clients that actually appreciate what we do and give us a ton of exclusive business as a result. We started out self-funded so we’ll never have investors telling us what to do, and as a start-up we actually enjoy coming into work as there’s always a new challenge!

Founders - Charlie & Matt

What We Need:

Bright, switched on and respected Technology Recruitment Consultants who can come in and hit the ground running. We’ve built the foundations for a great company and now need the right people to come in and help us take it to the next level. Also someone that takes photos would be a plus, as it turns out we do not...

The Fun Stuff:

• Equity in the business from day one • 20%-30% commission • 25 days’ holiday + bank holidays (if you run out of holiday and need a break, we’ll make it work) • Annual holiday incentives – so far we’ve been to America, Turkey, Croatia and France • Quarterly away days/nights • Monthly lunch clubs • Team days/nights out – both ad hoc and target based • Regular BBQ restaurant visits (can be altered for vege/vegans!) • No dress code • Friday early finish • Fresh fruit – you want a banana? We’ll buy you one. • Oh, and our office has free beer/cider taps on every floor, though legally we can’t encourage excessive use of this... • Table tennis, pool (not swimming), etc.

Why Join Us?

Because it’s going to be a seriously fun ride! Recruitment isn’t always fun, but joining a start up and having shares and a say in who we hire and what direction we move in IS fun! We expect a lot from everyone, ourselves included, and that’s what makes us good. However, we will also keep the focus on your personal progression and ensure that you’re always learning, always pushing for promotions, and always developing as an individual.

What You Get:

A seriously warm desk – genuinely. We are overrun with work and you could happily sit and resource for six months and make some serious cash, though obviously BD is always encouraged! We know all tech recruitment businesses offer ‘relaxed environments’ these days; no phone times, no dress codes, no KPIs, etc., so we’ll cut all of that jargon out because frankly that’s obvious. What they don’t offer, however, is the chance to be instrumental in the building of a business from an almost ground level and actually be a part-owner in the company you’re helping shape!

Our Culture:

We’re an easy-going bunch who don’t take ourselves too seriously, but we work hard and smart. We know everyone has their own way of working and we support those. ‘One size fits all’ has had its day. We’re also realistic – sometimes you want to work until 8pm because you’re on a roll, other times you’ve had your fill by 4pm and need an early refreshment. All fine by us! We always reward success, financial or otherwise, and drive a positive and energetic environment. We don’t want an office full of drones. We want a company filled with lively people who are comfortable expressing themselves! We’re based in WeWork Moorgate and, among many offerings, we have pool/table tennis and free beer/cider taps on every floor that are always handy after a tough day!

Organic Growth:

We are hiring because we simply have too much work on! We’re not trying to scale for the sake of it - we will always hire carefully, and only ever hire quality. We will never be a bums-on-seats company. We will hire consistently but not in huge waves so as to keep the business very much profitable, making sure your shares are always increasing in value and also importantly to maintain the great culture. You will be an integral part of this business and you will help shape it. You’ll be involved in as much or as little of the business side as you like and we will have a clear, individual progression plan in place for you, agreed by both us and you.
