WE'RE CONSTANTLY LEARNING We do things differently, so don’t expect the ordinary. We believe in employing authentic characters above all else and it’s our duty to challenge. Good people make good recruiters - our balance of diligence and authenticity makes us truly the best ones for the job. We care, we listen, we’re constantly learning from each other and refining our craft, we value teamwork over individual success and we’re always fun to work with, even in the trickiest of situations.
We hire people with great attitudes who work really hard, so it makes sense that we give them the freedom to work from wherever, whenever. We believe giving people this freedom demonstrates mutual trust which is the foundation of all great teams. Team members often take advantage of the flexible hours by having long weekends in Europe - flying out on a Thursday evening, working remotely on Friday and then being at their destination ready for Friday evening :)

SIVAN - CEO & FOUNDER
Sivan is the founder of Joss Search and has worked in the recruitment industry for 15 years. She left school at 16 and was soon managing a local restaurant where she discovered her passion for providing exemplary service. She moved into recruitment and worked for several firms before deciding to set up Joss Search in 2010 to focus on finding the highest calibre candidates and staff regardless of their backgrounds. Quality is at the heart of everything she does
After 5 years working at Joss Search, we feel that it's a good time to take a proper break and gain some a fresh perspective. We therefore offer a 3 month, fully paid, sabbatical for anyone who reaches this milestone. Sally, one of our Senior Consultants who started life at JS as Sivan's PA and who has been with us for over 5 years is taking her sabbatical in March. She is heading off for an amazing trip to New Zealand to escape London and enjoy the great outdoors...I'm not sure she'll miss us as much as we'll miss her :)
JOSSIE VALUE #2 - BE HUMBLE, BE REAL
THE JOSSIE CHRISTMAS PARTY 2018 IN THE COTSWOLDS
Claire joined the team in 2013 having worked as an EA in private equity for over 10 years.

She (and continues!) displayed an outstanding attitude and thirst for knowledge which has led her become a top billing, Senior Consultant with management responsibilities
JOSSIE CHILLY BOTTLES!
We believe better people make better Jossies and one of core values is to be constantly learning. We're therefore passionate about helping you become a better person as well as a better recruiter. We ensure you have clear recruitment and sector specific training through a mix of theoretical and practical learning. Everyone has a career development plan as well as role specific objectives which are check into weekly and quarterly respectively. For 2019 we're implementing a whole new external training program to develop the teams' sales, recruitment and business skills at all levels in the business. This will also include leadership and management training for all managers to ensure we help maximise everyone's development
TEAM EXERCISE CLASSES
We all share common values but we're a mixed bunch from a wide variety of backgrounds - the most important thing is that we work with nice, interesting people! We don't recruit from particular backgrounds or experience which means people join without preconceived ideas about our sector or recruitment in general. Our flexible working means that we're committed to giving people the chance to fit their lives around work. We believe this is something everyone should take advantage of and it is has been particularly helpful for Mums and Dads (including Sivan!) who are coming back following maternity leave, who able to fit parenting responsibilities around their work.

Other changes include: + new CRM (Talent Rover) + cloud based filing system to allow more effective remote working + Northstar (the equivalent of a Fit Bit for recruitment consultants!) which will help Consultants better manage their performance and career progression.
