What Hunted Says

Leeds based NJP Selection Group have tied together three executive search brands under their banner over the last decade: NJP Global, specialising in the Packaging sector; Aston Chambers, for Flavours, Fragrances, and Ingredients; and Baine Wallace, for Finance, Fintech, and Banking. Despite being based in the UK, the overwhelming majority of their assignments are international. They take development and mentoring extremely seriously. And they aren't shy of a reward either: there are bonuses and regular incentives for top performers to enjoy. Take your pick of exciting markets to recruit into and join a family of brands that take your career seriously. And they've built the mature, high performing environment you need to make it a success, too.

NJP Selection Group - Aston Chambers

The NJP Selection Group, established in 2009 at the height of the last UK recession, set out with the strategy to develop global, yet niche focused recruitment practices. 

Now over 11 years later we are made up of three recruitment brands, NJP Global, Aston Chambers and Baine Wallace.  

The three practices are truly global with less that 5% of all our assignments being undertaken in the UK.  

We have also recently relocated to a brand new HQ, located in the heart of Leeds city centre and we are now looking to grow across all three practices with a number of strategic hires as we build towards 2021.

The opportunity

We are now looking for like-minded individuals who wish to join a flexible and mature culture, looking to operate with a level of autonomy yet with significant support/training when required.  

We look for recruiters, that genuinely get excited by the market sector, that have character, resilience and great commercial awareness. We undertake the majority of our assignments with clients from across the world, so having great communications skills is an absolute must!

Aston Chambers - Flavours, Fragrances, Ingredients

Working alongside our Practice Director, you will help support and eventually lead the development across the US speciality ingredients sectors. The US market for flavours, fragrances and ingredients is enormous, representing a huge, stable and growing market sector.

The role would require you to build and develop our existing network in this area, proactively building new relationships in order to source and win new assignments.

We are hiring in our other divisions

NJP Global - Packaging, Machinery, Private Equity-backed Portfolio Entities
Baine Wallace - Corporate Finance & Restructuring, Economic Consulting, Fintech, Forensic & Litigation Services, Financial & Banking, Tax & Legal Services

Growth and Development Opportunities

All but one of our recruitment leadership team have been developed from within, so whether you are looking to eventually manage or not, the opportunity exists. 

Only last year we put our leadership team through a 12-month externally run leadership development program as one of many internal/external programs we offer to our employees.  

We also run regular group training sessions led by the leadership teams alongside mentoring programs for our junior consultants. Our aim is to have a team of engaged, talented, high performing people at the top of their game, so learning and development is a top priority.

About you

For our experienced hires, we look for a demonstrable track record of consistent billing revenue over a couple of years. We are not too worried if you haven’t ever billed more than £250,000 but we require your ambition to get there. Our markets are well balanced, stable and growing, with our average fees across all three businesses of about £27,500.  

As an experienced consultant, you'll need to be inherently proactive, have a demonstrable record of success in finding and securing new assignments, whilst being comfortable with headhunting passive candidates.  

We are open to your market experience, as long as you have some affinity to recruitment within the manufacturing environments across all areas (sales, marketing, operations and technical). We are also happy to speak with you if you have never recruited outside of the UK, as we can teach this aspect.
