Flexible working isn't just about being able to start a bit later, and finish a bit earlier. It's also about working from home one day a week, every week. It's about having extended lunches to fit in that gym session. It's about finishing at 3pm on a Friday to embrace the weekend. That's what New Chapter offer as standard. With offices in Leeds, London and Manchester, the work across Consumer, FMCG and Retail, and have great relationships with some enviable clients such as Coca-Cola, Lindt and Laurent Perrier.

You can earn up to 40% uncapped commission. The more you bill over the financial year, the more commission you earn. £0 - £49,999 = 10% £50,000 - £99,999 = 20% £100,000 - £119,999 = 30% £120,000 - £149,999 = 35% £150,000 + = 40%..that's right..40% commission.
I’m passionate about developing and motivating my colleagues to achieve more than they imagined possible
Here at New Chapter, our people are a biggest asset, we know without our people, we have nothing. So in which case, our people empower our business. We know that employees are not just motivated by money, we're motivated by autonomy, mastery in our market, a cool place to work and a sense of being. So that's what we do! We put a lot of effort and work into creating the best platform that we can for our employees. There are monthly open forums so that we can all talk and discuss any amazing ideas people to have to drive the business forward, we've worked very hard having a career path in place where everyone is treated fairly and rewarded accordingly and we have an environment where we all celebrate each others successes and support each others development - that's what makes New Chapter different! We not only empower you to run your own business in a business, we also incentivise team effort and performance.
Our commitment to service excellence in everything we do and a values-driven approach makes us truly unique within the recruitment industry. We have created amazing office environments across Leeds and London, built a unique benefits package and a progression structure that will make your eyes pop. We believe we have created a place where you will love to work, want to come to work and want to stay and contribute to its success. So much so we even got nominated and won 5th Best Small company to work for in the UK alongside the likes of Coca-Cola, Lindt & Twining’s.
"I almost left recruitment completely before I joined New Chapter. I’d experienced unfair bonus’, prescriptive learning and development and the typical “boys club” behaviour in the office and I was ready to throw in the towel. I met the guys from New Chapter out on their Christmas Party and I’ve never met a bunch of people who were so ready and willing to wax lyrical about how good their business was and what a brilliant place it was to work. Which is only enhanced by winning the Great Place to Work award twice and significantly improving on the ranking! I’ve joined New Chapter and I’ve never looked back. To work in a place where you genuinely feel rewarded, valued, and trusted to act ethically in support of your client and candidate is really special. Add in the beautiful offices and the incentives and it almost feels too good to be true. This is a fantastic place to work!"

We know every company will have a mission statement and a set of values but at New Chapter we all really live by them. We think it's why we've created an amazing working environment for people to thrive in. First of it's PEOPLE.. People are at the heart of everything that we do! SUCCESS As people we strive for success in everything we do. We aim to support, challenge & encourage one another to achieve their individual and collective goals. PASSION You'll get this right away from us - we are passionate about everything we do. INTEGRITY No matter what the situation, we do things the correct way. KNOWLEDGE We encourage our consultants to become industry experts and act as true partners with our clients. You'll often find them in long conversations with industry leaders about the latest trends in their industry. EXCELLENCE We strive to take on every single task with excellence while improving every day.
Our biggest is our annual holiday incentive - this year we are heading for Miami. You can win your seat on the plane with your own performance, your team's performance and your division's performance, even more reason to support each other! Every month, each office sets a team incentive and if we hit our target we'll agree on an activity to do together - these have included visiting cool pop up places in London or going on boat trips with plenty of booze to keep us busy. As a team if you hit your target - breakfast is on us. (Some people like 'Spoons, others prefer somewhere a bit more refined). Get yourself into the 'Elite 100 Club' and you'll receive an extra day working from home a month, an early finish a month, a fancy meal, £100 voucher, £100 donation to our charity and a state of the art trophy!
"Working at New Chapter is a roller coaster of fun, hard work and ambitious people working for a common cause. From day 1 you are empowered in your role and given the autonomy and tools you need to succeed as a Recruitment Consultant."
Every year, we partner with a new charity and we work together throughout the year to raise money for it. Events have included a bike ride to Paris, raffles, quizzes and bake sales. Charities have included The Cystic Fibrosis Trust, The MS Society and The Barts Charity.
We're going places!! We've just opened up a new office in Manchester, relocated our Leeds head office and have just moved into a swanky new space in London. By the year 2020, we aim to have our first international office - we're thinking New York!!
