Blackthorn Trace

What Hunted Says

What would the perfect high billing environment look like? Well, you’d want to work in a sector that is growing by the year. You’d want your potential clients to be crying out for new staff, and your expertise on how to hire them. You’d want to surround yourself by ambitious, driven individuals who - most importantly - support and encourage each other. And you’d want to work under a Team Leader with exceptional credentials. Sound good? Then let me introduce Blackthorn Trace, one of the UK's first niche Cyber Security recruiters, dedicated to the fields of Defensive and Offensive Security, Threat Intelligence and Governance, Risk and Compliance. They’re a high performing, collaborative team who partner closely with their clients. Oh, and they just happen to have some excellent perks too.

From suit and tie to black tie 😃


You've worked in recruitment, you understand how demanding it is. At Blackthorn Trace we ensure we work together collaboratively to get the work done, and we work as a team to find our way through the lows. Everyone on the team takes ownership of their role and we work hard during the week to ensure we have a reason on Friday to let our hair down! On Friday's we are in dress down and as soon as it hits 5pm we (more often than not) head to the pub to kick-start the weekend! We also have the chance on a Friday to finish as early as 2:30pm depending on how many deals the team have closed that week! We are interested in working with people who love what they do and are passionate about recruitment and being the very best they can be. Everyone on the team genuinely cares about building a culture that’s different, a culture that feels like home, and that's what makes us special.
