LinuxRecruit

What Hunted Says

Linux Recruit are true specialists in their market, which means they have the same buy-in from clients as a larger brand, with all of the benefits of working for a smaller agile business. They run the biggest DevOps meetup in the world at over 5,000 attendees and their Trainees have billed over £200k in their first year. There's bags of autonomy, based out of a truly impressive office. This is an awesome culture which harbours success and above all, enjoyment in being successful.

WHY LINUXRECRUIT?

Working for an established and recognised industry leader like LinuxRecruit will open doors for you as a recruitment consultant that have previously remained firmly shut. Alongside huge earnings potential, you'll also get the opportunity to build up your reputation as one of the industry's leading recruiters - someone who gets a friendly message from the CTO of a cutting edge organisation that ignores cold contact from other agencies. We can offer you a huge amount of business relationships to leverage, with a good amount of autonomy, and the chance to genuinely build your own desk.

Community is at the heart of the Open Source world - and at the heart of how we approach recruitment.

We're Recruitment Consultants, not Talent Ninjas, Sourcing Fairies or Headhunt Wizards....

COMMUNITY DRIVEN

LinuxRecruit are definitely not your average recruitment company. We're valued as an organisation within the Open Source and DevOps communities and we work hard to contribute a huge amount, and make sure we go over and above just sending CVs. We run the Worlds Biggest DevOps meetup, with over 5,000 members and a regular monthly audience of over 250 attendees. We also produce regular content into the community, such as a regular DevOps eBook, DevOps Journeys, and have an interactive blog area with various client contributions. We regularly sponsor and attend events, conferences and industry functions. We're faces of the community, have a great reputation and are regularly asked to contribute to the community.

WHAT WE LOOK FOR

We're looking for consultants who make Placements not do Deals, who run campaigns rather than spray and pray and whose recruitment strategy doesn't end when the phone is 'Smashed'. We're a committed group of true consultants, who enjoy working in recruitment. We want people who favour a long-term relationship, rather than hit and run business. We are pragmatic, to the point and as a collective, fiercely competitive. Our consultants understand the industry inside out, are pragmatic and don't beat around the bush (we refer to ourselves as Recruitment Consultants, you won't find any 'Talent Ninjas' here). If you're bored of just searching the job boards, sending endless streams of unanswered inmails and you want to work somewhere with a genuine USP and real brand identity, then we may be the place for you.

LOOKING FOR AUTONOMY?

Though we're a relatively young team, we treat our consultants like grown ups. We aren't a KPI driven team, focussing instead on our results, and there is the autonomy to give you room to do what you do best - Recruit.

Alice Lloyd

Alice heads up our Development team, and personally specialises in Scala and Functional Programming positions, using her network to build up our successful Scala Central meetup from scratch.

Luke Gunn

Luke heads up our Contracts team. Starting out in the Permanent team, he knows pretty much everyone in the industry, and helps to organise the DevOps Exchange.

We build long term relationships, and want everyone at LinuxRecruit to play their part in building a brand that is trusted.

WHAT WE CAN OFFER YOU

We have a great commission structure, but what really sets us apart is the scope you'll have to generate huge billing figures. How much you can achieve is up to you, trainees coming in have billed 200K in their first year, and our top billers are bringing in over 500K. There are huge opportunities in our marketplace, and you'll join us with lots of warm relationships, and the scope and support to grow into leading a team, or even starting out your own business unit.

TRAINING AND SUPPORT

We are committed to training and development. We also believe that you learn on the job, not in the classroom, so we make sure training sessions fit around you, with on the desk-training, bi-weekly lunchtime workshops and industry expert visits. We also set aside time each month for a review, which gives you the chance to reflect on what you've achieved and refocus on your long term goals.

SAYING WELL DONE

You'll be exceptionally well rewarded at LinuxRecruit. There is a lunch club for every consultant that hits their target in the month, where we go to a great London restaurant and let our hair down! There's also a quarterly holiday target for those on track with their targets. Last year the team went to watch the Euros in Paris, and we're off to Las Vegas to celebrate a great year next month. The fact we're small means that we can reward our consultants flexibly, and we regularly come up with other ways to reward their hard work, whether that's going go-karting, or getting some drinks into the office to toast a great week!

Just outside our door is the lovely St Dunstan's in the East which is a great lunch spot when the sun comes out

We don’t wear shiny suits. We make placements not deals. We are fiercely competitive.

GENUINE SPECIALISTS

We know everyone in recruitment says they are specialists. But we take our word seriously. We see ourselves as part of the Open Source industry, and if you join us, you'll be able to become a real expert in your market - and that's definitely not something you can get at other agencies.
