High achievers trip to South Africa 2019

Best of both worlds 🌍

What do you love about bigger companies? The global mobility? Well known name? Better training? But then you've got smaller companies who can offer flexibility. That personal touch. Quicker growth. So it's great when you find a company that can offer both. Introducing Cobalt...

Rewards with Cobalt 🥇

Don't you hate it when companies don't tell you their commission scheme until the final interview? We're not like that. We offer up to 40% commission as well as a starter scheme to get you earning money asap. Other incentives ✔️ Monthly - Extra day's leave for consultant of the month ✔️ Quarterly - High achievers' lunch in a top restaurant, plus money towards a long weekend away and an extra day's leave for Consultant of the Quarter ✔️ Annually - Global high Achievers' trip (recently to Las Vegas, South Africa and Dubai)

Lets fly away ✈️

With 11 offices across the globe, we champion the jet setters of the team that want to take their career abroad. There's always room to move overseas with members of staff even being promoted to office heads in different locations. We'll soon be opening our US offices which will be up for grabs for someone internally to head up. We've relocated Cobalters to Singapore, New Zealand, London and Germany.

Work is a part of life. Not all of it 🧘‍♀️

We've had members of staff leave and come back to Cobalt due to our caring approach to staff. We run regular surveys to get your feedback on how to improve the business. Due to feedback from consultants we've shortened our hours (8.30 to 5.30), introduced work from home and early finish Friday (off you pop at 5). That's why we feature in "The Sunday Times 100 Best Small Companies to Work For" and why we won "Best Work Life Balance Award".


"Describe your culture"... oh here we go 🙄

It's hard to get your companies culture across in words. But you don't just join a company for a seat to sit on 9 to 5 so here we go... We're a company filled with second jobbers who are looking to refine their raw skills. We're perfect for those wanting to move from a recruiter to a consultant. Our sales floor doesn't feel like a typical recruitment agency. There's no standing up and throwing balls, ringing gongs. It's filled with discussions and measured phone calls (we don't KPI on call times). If this is your second job in recruitment you'll notice we don't run to mega KPIs. We have 1 which is 3 to 7 interviews per week depending on the pace of your desk. We're a realistic decent bunch of people that are pretty good at our jobs.
