The best of Bristol has arrived. Foxtek have carved a name for themselves in one of the most rapidly developing tech locations in Europe - the Netherlands. Break free from the oversaturated, UK talent scene and work in one of the most rapidly developing tech locations in Europe. From independent start-ups to huge multinationals, the Netherlands is the place to focus - with thousands of tech companies in Amsterdam alone. Co-founders Tom and Tom carefully tread the line between autonomy and hands on support. Yes, you can go to the gym at lunch, remote work when you need to, and dart off early on a Friday. But recruiters at every level also receive structured training and mentorship by two of the biggest billers in the industry. At Foxtek you have the flexibility to grow out new markets in the way you want to do it, whilst being surrounded by top performers to bounce ideas off, turn to for advice, or spur you on.
We’ve felt for a while that the approach used in the recruitment industry needs to change! Despite being a £36 Billion industry in the UK. alone, outdated practices, a lack of care and a bad reputation are commonplace. However, we live in exciting times where disruptors across every sector are leading by example and demonstrating there is another way! The recent rise of Fintechs, Medtechs etc. is evidence that customers are no longer willing to put up with a shoddy service and are more prepared than ever before to switch to companies who offer a greater experience and put the customer first 👌 Here at Foxtek, we feel it's about time someone disrupted the recruitment sector for the better and we're the ones to do it 💪 We appreciate what you might be thinking – “Yeah that’s great guys, but talk is cheap”. You’re absolutely right, but we’re confident that through the dedication of the Foxtek team, we can show you what a modern recruitment agency should look like 👍
Here at Foxtek, we think working collaboratively is the way to go! Fed up of having to compete with other consultants for the same leads or being forced to call your manager contacts every 2 weeks just to avoid someone else poaching them? That's not how we do things! Each consultant gets their specific discipline and geographical patch that only they can work. Leads & candidates within your area are constantly passed across by your peers and Foxtek clients are shared should they be looking for a skill set that you specialise in. The result = warmer desks with repeat business clients and Tech Consultants that know their market better than anyone. It just makes sense 🤷♂️

If you've ever visited Bristol or live here already then you'll know how awesome it is. We're based at Bristol Castlemead surrounded by Cabot Circus, St Nick's market and our favorite pub, The Phoenix! 🍻 If you like keeping fit then choose from not 1 but 3 Gyms based next to the office and if you want some summer sun at lunchtime then head over the road to Castle Park ☀️ We think Bristol is simply the best place in the UK to live right now!

Surely there's a bit more time before robots take over recruitment? We hope so anyway. In the meantime, we feel a customer experience focused approach resulting in true brand fans is the way to grow! We talk as humans to humans. Whether to each other or to candidates and clients. Revolutionary I know 😉 We know all agencies claim this, but customer care is at the very centre of everything that happens at Foxtek. To demonstrate this, we've got a 5 ⭐ Google rating in Amsterdam... which no other recruitment agency has giving us a market advantage. This means our clients and candidates come back time and time again and consistently (& voluntarily) refer others. The result is more roles to work, and more commission 👍

The real reason you join recruitment... for free food! 🍴
Recruitment companies are notoriously shocking when it comes to training - "just get on the phone and call some managers". Sound familiar 🙄 We have a proper, structured training plan in place for both junior and experienced recruiters that covers every aspect of the job. You also get the opportunity to be mentored by two top billers (having consistently billed £1.5m per annum between them) and surrounded by some really top recruiters. There's tons of knowledge being shared and speaking out with fresh ideas is actively encouraged!
Everyone matters at Foxtek. We want everyone to feel part of the journey we're on. We all contribute to how the business operates and constantly strive to innovate. We don't do fixed breaks and you don't have to hit an incentive to be able to go to the gym at lunchtime. It's a fun, honest and informal environment. We love to socialise and take every opportunity to get together outside of work. You'll normally find us chilling out at Bristol harbourside, eating at Bristol's famous eateries or grabbing a drink at the local pub! (The Phoenix) We also have regular celebrations throughout the year such as Summer BBQ's, monthly lunch clubs, Boat trips in Amsterdam and many more.
Here's a few things we've done so far 🌞 ▶️ Summer Party ▶️ Paddle-boarding ▶️ Boat Trips ▶️ Go-karting ▶️ Bowling ▶️ Comedy club ▶️ Christmas Party Up next for October... Mini Golf ⛳
