Celebrating 10 years of Human Capital

Working at Human Capital

At Human Capital, we believe that in recruitment you are only as good as the quality of relationships that you have. It is for this reason that we place a heavy emphasis on maintaining and expanding our client and candidate community through quality direct interactions. We know that this approach works because for the last 15 years+ we have been able to build a strong reputation as the ‘go-to recruiter’ in all of our core markets. Yes, we realise that is a bold statement, but we know it is true because some of the most senior and accomplished clients and candidates working across global commodities answer our calls. We take this so seriously that when you join our business, we will facilitate as many introductions as possible to allow you to build and maintain key client and candidate relationships across UK and Europe in person. In return, we ask that you are proactive and self-motivated and prepared to build a career as a search consultant.
