Offering 20% on everything you bill plus up to £6k in bonuses, you can say good bye to Liverpool Street Station and expensive season tickets. Early Friday Finish, closed between Christmas and New Year, and Birthday Off are a couple of the thoughtful perks you can expect at ECS.

Escape the City - Join Team ECS!

You’re an Essex based recruiter getting up at silly o’clock to sit (if you’re lucky) on an overcrowded, overpriced train whilst listening to the other commuters around you cough, sneeze and snore their way into the city. You arrive at your office, work all day, only to repeat the process in reverse on the way home. Sound familiar? Why not talk to us? Get in touch and you’ll find our modern offices are a 5 minute walk from Leigh Broadway and short cab journey from Leigh and Chalkwell train stations. You'll also learn about an environment where you’ll be given the support to ensure you’re successful and the freedom to do the job your way. We’re confident you’ll find we have the perfect opportunity for you. Stop spending all that time (and money) on the train and register your interest in a role with us today. Escape the city and we guarantee you won’t look back.
