Cobalt to the Core

We believe that relationships are based on chemistry and trust. To us, the real value of recruitment lies in the ability to attract and retain these relationships, just like the magnetic metal we’re named after.

The people we work with are at the forefront of everything we do. We’re a passionate team equipped with the skills and support needed to be able to work in a way that suits you best. It’s just one of the reasons why we stand out from the crowd.

Let's Fly Away ✈️

With offices across the globe, in the UK, Germany, the US, Singapore, and New Zealand, we champion the jet setters of the team that want to take their career abroad.

There's always opportunities to move overseas, with members of staff even being promoted to office heads in different locations.

Our global collaboration between offices is a special and unique part of Cobalt, that we can use to leverage the best roles and candidates around the world. 

Be Rewarded at 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.

✔️ 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

The World of Cobalt

In an overcrowded market, we are authentically different. We believe that relationships are based on chemistry and trust and that, like the magnetic metal we’re named after, the ability to attract and retain these relationships is the true value of recruitment.

We’re always on the lookout for talented people to join our team.

We measure success on quality, not quotas. Without high-pressure sale tactics, our consultants have the freedom and flexibility they need to do their job well by matching the right people to the right jobs through their own good judgement.

As a team, we're proud to deliver quality with integrity. This is why the best recruiters want to work for us and why we think you will too.
