Our Opportunity

We're looking for experienced consultants that recruit mid-senior level Finance positions or HR specialists within a specific industry vertical. We've created a working environment which enables you to manage your business in your own way. You'll work autonomously within a collaborative and supportive culture, enabled by technology.

Our Environment

We are experienced recruiters who know our markets. So we decided to create a company of like-minded individuals who are specialists in their field and don’t need KPI driven business environments to be successful. We don't believe that this type of experience needs any form of hand holding so everyone is given full autonomy to run their desk the way they want. Support is on hand at any time as and when required. We operate a collaborative working culture where ideas, leads, contacts, networks and clients are openly discussed and shared when appropriate. Your sales target is 4 x your base salary which will be your only statistical objective.


The technology we use enables us to work from wherever we want, be it at home or at regular team meet ups in town. When joining you'll receive a laptop, iPhone, printer and a few other gadgets to enable you to work effectively. We give everyone a LinkedIn recruiter license with InMails and advertising slot. We are constantly investigating additional advertising platforms and CV databases. All our software is cloud based so you can use it wherever you have connectivity. We use Microsoft Teams for regular face to face interactions and our remote support team are on hand to tackle any technical issues that arise.

Relationship Driven

All we ask is that you have a relationship based approach, that you connect with our values and that you are excited by joining a business on a journey of growth. Our Values: Honest & Passionate Brave & Tenacious Challenging & Human We approach our role with our Brand Values at the heart of everything, we believe in them and the positive effects they have in the world of recruitment. Whether it is brutal honesty regarding feedback, standing firm on our fees and making sensible commercial decisions or advising our clients and candidates to consider alternative solutions. We truly believe in a relationship based, genuine consultative approach underpinned by our values.

Commission & Reward Structure

We operate a quarterly threshold equal to 20% of your base salary. Once achieved you will earn 35% of your NFI. Once you're over £200 k for the year then you earn 40% of everything you bill minus threshold. Once you're over £300 k for the year then you earn 50% of everything you bill - no thresholds. There are no rolling quarterly thresholds. Our benefits scheme includes an unlimited holiday allowance (no catch, although we do insist you take at least 20 days), PMI and some softer benefits and a variety of discounts through one of our providers. In addition we run regular ad-hoc reward and incentive schemes which we regularly review.
