About Us

RedCat Digital was one of the first specialist digital recruitment agencies in the UK. We were established before the likes of Facebook & Google were household names and have been helping to build this disruptive industry since 2000 – we don’t mean to brag but.. we’re kind of a big deal. We’ve worked with some of the biggest brands from household names like ASOS, RBS, LoveHolidays, Burberry, Heineken, BT, Sky to up and coming start-ups like Monzo, Plum Guide, Babylon Health, Letgo (to name but a few). RedCat was born from a dislike to KPI-driven recruitment. We decided to go against the grain to create a collaborative and relaxed environment where people feel comfortable and everyone’s opinion matters. We're based in the heart of Shoreditch so there are always cool bars to head to when your pipeline heads south. We don’t want to be breathing down your neck – making sure that you hit your daily targets, we trust you to run your own day, in your own style.

About the Role

The contract team covers content & editorial, cybersecurity, web development, and mobile development, but with plans for international expansion, we are looking to expand into other areas of technology including, but not limited to Product Management, Data and Analytics, Digital Design, Project management and Client Services. Although these are open seats, we believe that our consultants should be passionate about their vertical, so if you have already built a network in another specialism, we are happy to build a desk to suit you.

About You

As a senior consultant, we expect ambition, hunger and the dedication to build a successful contract market. You’ll have an established private network in your sector and would like us to provide you with the equipment and support needed for your day to day activities. You will be comfortable meeting and greeting both candidates and clients daily, and would be happy to work hand-in-hand with our perm team in order to build on our existing client base. Our clients come to us when assignments are tough, so you'll need to use your intellectual horsepower to lead our clients - even when talent is scarce. KPI's have never been our thing, so for this reason, you should know how to grow a market, whilst providing elite levels of service. Attention to detail goes without saying. We don't want to look over your shoulder, and shouldn't have to.

The Day to Day

• Talent attraction: market mapping and head-hunting – once you’re up and running, you will get the opportunity to bring on a trainee and to support their development in order to build your own area in the contract division. • Business Development: working closely with other consultants to open existing accounts and developing new long term partnerships. • Marketing/ developing your recruitment brand: working with our marketing manager your role will be to build our brand as the recruitment partner of choice within your sector of choice. We are looking to invest significantly in sponsoring events and giving something back to the community we partner with.

Training & Development

We understand the importance of training whether it be inhouse from our internal trainer, Directors, online training, or through visiting industry experts. We've made significant investments in our training and development program which is spearheaded by our dedicated internal trainer who has over 15 years of recruitment experience. We want you to be the best you can be and have worked hard to develop a fantastic talent development program which is on-going and constantly updated. Our training sessions are bespoke for each consultant, offering management and director programs for more senior staff members. From day one, you will understand the key targets you need to hit in order to progress to Director. There's no limit to how quickly you progress as long as you stay on target. You'll have regular catch up's with the management team to help you manage the pace of your workload and your career. With progress comes more responsibility, freedom and, most importantly, MONEY!
