And we want you to join us. Riding high on our organic growth and success within the Pharma division, Discover have grasped a unique opportunity to take a team to live, work and excel in Miami, Florida! With the scale for growth and success in Pharma in the US off the charts we landed at the end of 2018 with a brilliant and eager team. 2019 is going to be an incredible year! Why Miami? We wanted to break out from the standard New York or San Francisco move, we were looking for an East Coast time zone for easy access to clients, with great weather all year round, the beach on your door step, a fun location with diverse culture, food, music and nightlife; a better cost of living, a far better standard of living. A pool of local talent. With easy connections around the US and Caribbean islands for business and leisure, and offering cheap flights to the UK for our expat contingent. All with much more money to be made for you as a professional. For us, Miami ticked all boxes.
Whilst the awesome lifestyle of the move is important, our team are the hungriest for the increased earning power and income from fee size they will have in Miami compared to the UK. Where UK recruiters are taxed close to 40% on the high earners they place, in Miami this will be more like 25%. Combined with the bigger fees on offer in Florida consultants can earn approximately a third more money whilst working at the same performance output as their UK cousins. This, all before adding in enhanced internal and external training for further development and subsequent commission achievements under the Discover International family.
Our Miami home will be in Brickell, the central, buzzing business district - close to stunning South Beach and on the door step of beautiful, affordable areas to live so you can walk to the office in the sun!
If you are local to Miami, or if you are US citizen or Green Card holder working elsewhere in the US who would love to live and work in Miami, we want to hear from you! Experience in recruitment and/or sales is preferred. For British citizens, if you have 2+ years’ experience in contract or perm recruitment and are interested in accelerating the next step in your career and earning power in the sun in FL with our industry leading team - get in touch! We're looking for high performers with positive energy, a real desire to succeed, and evidence of first class business development and recruitment skill, to help us grow and become the number one pharma recruitment company in the US. We will be providing Visas and a relocation package.
Compared to other recruitment hot-spots, Miami has a big draw beyond the obvious sun, fun and lifestyle. Your money goes a lot further! Unlike much of America, there is no state income tax in Florida, no city tax in Miami, and federal income tax for our high earners will be approximately 25%. Approximate tax comparison: MIAMI 25% New York 36.8% California 38.3% UK 38.6% Cost of living is lower too...
