(Any excuse)

Am I a Futurehead?

We’re not your typical recruitment business, we work hard and get some phenomenal results but we openly put our people first. If you want to work with genuinely nice people who care about what they do (and have a bit of fun along the way) then we might be for you!

Who will you be working with?

Our team are a diverse bunch. We have career recruiters who know their markets like the back of their hands, graduates who are learning the ropes, and others who've transitioned from other careers in areas like music, events management and design and bring extensive industry experience to the party. We have a great back office team, comprising Marketing, Operations, Finance and Compliance folks who can support you. We also have a number of part-time parents in our ranks, and we're more than happy to discuss flexible working options if that's something you need. What we all have in common (other than a love of cake), is a shared belief in the power of being nice. Why not get in touch and come meet the gang?

Proudly collecting our third Great Place To Work award!

Cheers!

Why work for Futureheads? A smarter way to work

Everyone specialises in a specific digital discipline, building really deep knowledge with a niche network. We hire recruiters who are interested in becoming experts in a field, and help them build really credible knowledge which adds value to our customers. All Consultants run dual desks across temp and perm as we believe this delivers continuity of service to clients, and maximises earning potential for you. Our collaborative culture means that your colleagues actively contribute to your success, and vice versa. Several heads are better than one!

Why work for Futureheads? A long-term career

We take time to understand you as an individual and build your training and career opportunities around your unique strengths. There are a range of career routes available to you including people management, practice lead and account direction roles, with clear guidelines around each role to help track your progression. And because we’re ambitious about both growing our existing markets and expanding into complementary market sectors, there’s lots of opportunity. If you’ve got a market growth idea, we’d love to hear it.

We're committed to your career progression

There's lots of opportunity to advance knowledge and skill, with external trainers, coaching sessions and on the desk training, quarterly workshops, lunchtime masterclasses, and industry expert visits. We will always focus on your strengths rather than looking for weaknesses. We have a team of really motivated consultants and resourcers who want to continue to improve and develop and be the best they can be.

If you want to work with genuinely nice people who care about what they do (and have a bit of fun along the way) then we might be for you!

We stick to what we’re good at

We recruit for a handful of digital disciplines that we know lots about, rather than tackling a bit of everything. That means a deep and genuine engagement with a niche community and its issues, conversations and events. • C-Level and Executive • Change and Transformation • Product Management • Project Management • Design & Creative • Marketing •Technical • UX & Service Design • Analytics & Insight

We’re a happy bunch who like to collaborate and share success. We like people, and we like to see people and businesses do well. If we can play a part in that, we’re extra happy.

Why work for us? A dynamic digital market

The digital industry is growing, fast-moving and highly engaged with recruitment, yet very skills-short. There is a real need for a genuinely consultative approach – smart recruiters have a clear opportunity to over- achieve on billings and enjoy a huge variety of work. Our deep experience in digital means we can help you navigate the market quickly.

Why work for Futureheads? Our bonus scheme

Futureheads has a unique bonus scheme which celebrates and reflects our collaborative working practices and culture. Everyone is rewarded on company performance and individual performance, reflecting their contribution to the wider business’ success. It’s a bonus scheme which engenders trust and collaboration but which also allows billers to maximise their earnings. Overall, we ensure that your total earnings (including base salary) equate to at least 30% of the Gross Profit you bill. We also ensure that non-billers, including support staff, receive a share of the company’s success, so it’s a truly inclusive scheme.
