The Opportunity

You will have the opportunity to grow your own desk through a combination of our training, guidance and your own entrepreneurial flair. This in itself can mean huge monetary reward for growing your own successful business. In addition to your day job, if you show the attributes for leadership and are capable of growing a successful team, the company is in a position to reward you with equity in the business itself. This could mean the ability to achieve life changing amounts of money further down the line.


At Austin Andrew we maintain a mature and trusting environment for our senior consultants. We trust each other to get the job done and therefore allow for flexible working and working from home if the need arises. Every consultant gets a work mobile phone and work laptop. We are a small team with a big brand in our specialist markets and we believe we add real value to our clients. We celebrate our wins as a team and go for a big (often boozy) lunch on a Friday when we have hit our monthly target. We also have a bigger quarterly target which is incentivised with an overseas trip. We don't operate in a KPI driven environment. We trust experienced recruiters to know what they need to do in order to make money and we give them the tools to do that. Every consultant has access to their own LinkedIn Recruiter account and we are signed up to The Recruitment Network which gives us access to industry leading training days for experienced recruiters and an external mentoring programme.


We would expect people to be joining Austin Andrew at Consultant level. If you bill £130k in your first year or £80k in any 6 month period then you will be promoted to Senior Consultant. From there you can decide to become a Managing Consultant, where you will have the opportunity to start building/running a team or you can go down the Principle Consultant avenue where your sole focus is billing. We are a small company who are entering a growth phase so it's a great time to join in on that growth. Once you have proven yourself there is the opportunity to gain equity in the business. Austin Andrew's current Directors and significant shareholders all joined as grads and we are keen to involve those who believe in our success.
