Development and Leadership Pods

A new breed of L&D is here. Gone are the days of sitting through hour long speeches about topics that don't relate to ANY objections or barriers you're experiencing. That's why we've created our Reactive Learning Pods. 1. Development Squads - held with an MD weekly to talk about topics affecting you right now e.g. going over a tough BD call and how to convert tricky prospects. Got a candidate that's been counter offered? This time will be used to buid an action plan for you. 2. Leadership Pods - here you develop skill sets needed to lead your team effectively. Team over performing? These sessions will pinpoint why and how, then create a plan on how to duplicate this success across the business. We also have company wide Refreshers on topics such as Creative candidate reach-outs, the Value of feedback etc.

Who are we?

Over the last 15 years, Burns Sheehan has gone from strength to strength, based on one thing - our relationships. Founded by Sean Burns and Jon "Baz" Sheehan, we've grown from a small team to a flourishing business with offices in London and Manchester. We are on an exciting journey and our ambition is to be recognised as a great place to work and be the Technology Recruitment Agency of choice. Burns Sheehan support some of the best tech-led businesses in the country, with our unparalleled understanding of the market and extensive business network. Yoox Net-a Porter, Nandos, Google DeepMind, Babylon Health, Financial Times, Rightmove, Skyscanner, Bulb Energy and Charlotte Tilbury are all part of our glittering client list.

What actually sets us apart?

• Trust and Flexibility go hand-in-hand: We’ve cultivated a grown-up, transparent environment in which we provide our teams with all the support they need to thrive. We’re not afraid to have honest conversations with each other. • Cold calling isn't part of our culture: Instead of cold calling, we get stuck into our community and deepen relationships with everyone that we deal with. • We’re all invested: Our success rests on a collective passion in the Burns Sheehan brand, and a companywide obsession with delivering a first class service. • Flat structure: Our Directors sit amongst the team on the sales floor. The entire business, across sales and operations, all pitch in to ensure we make the most of every day. None of us are afraid to get stuck in.

We certainly know how to let our hair down

At Burns Sheehan, we pride ourselves on nurturing an amazing company culture. From Friday Drinks to our annual Skiing trip, we make sure that we give as good as we get. Our "Social Committee" keeps the team busy with regular nights out and we enjoy an infamous company away-day every year. Above all, Burns Sheehan host regular company celebrations for our clients and candidates alike, including out 10th birthday which people are still talking about! We are busy planning our 15th Birthday party right now, so watch this space!

Nick's Story

Nick joined us two years ago with no recruitment experience. Having gone through our training programme he's now managing his own accounts, and making consistent placements. He puts his success down to... “Being broadminded enough to understand the need to learn from and adopt traits from more experienced consultants as well as developing my own unique style.”
