Job Summary

We’re a small but successful team with big plans for the future, and we’re looking for someone to join us in our central London offices to help us get there. We've already grown hugely over the past year, and are established as market leaders in the Open Source industry - but there's so much room for future growth.


We have a strong 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.

Alice heads up the Development team


Our Development team is small but growing fast, and there's incredible scope to make your mark early on. Currently, we specialise predominantly in backend development and functional programming, but there's also room to grow into the front end and full stack markets. We're looking for experienced consultants who are passionate about doing recruitment properly and are looking for a role where they can carve out a real career. Working for an established and recognised industry leader like us will open doors for you as a recruitment consultant that have previously remained firmly shut. If you want to grow your skills and reputation as a recruiter, and be part of an industry that is doing incredible things, get in touch today.


You'll be exceptionally well rewarded at LinuxRecruit. Alongside our competitive commission scheme, 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!

Alice introducing our Scala Central Meetup


We are committed to training and development. We 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.


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. The financial rewards at LinuxRecruit are great, and if you put the work in, you'll see great returns.


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'. If you're bored of searching Jobsite and sending endless streams of unanswered messages and you want to work somewhere with a genuine USP and real brand identity, then we may be the place for you.


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.


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.


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're a committed group of exceptional consultants who enjoy working in recruitment. We are pragmatic, to the point and fiercely competitive. We know our industry inside out and call a spade a spade (and a Recruiter a Recruiter, you won't find any 'Talent Ninjas' here). 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. In return, we're looking for someone who is looking to make a real career out, loves recruitment and craves success.
