Job description

Hybrid working – 2 days in the office, flexible hours, flexible days. A fantastic opportunity for an experienced Recruitment Resourcer or Recruitment Consultant to join a team-orientated, socially conscious and award-winning recruitment agency in the creative events industry.

Who are we?
We’re an award-winning recruitment agency like no other. Our business is built on a collaborative, supportive and socially conscious ethos that allows every person in our team to love what they do, feel supported and achieve more than they ever thought possible.

We are a true partner for most of the UK's leading creative events and experiential agencies (think car launches, award shows, festival activations etc) connecting exceptional talent to great opportunities.
No hard sales, no recruitment bull.. we just work hard, give exceptional service to our clients, use our industry knowledge and utilise the latest tech/resources to make sure we are the go-to recruitment agency for the industry.

Why join us?
We think we offer something different, here’s why.

A great team: Everyone says it, but we truly do work as one team, everyone supporting each other and celebrating successes in an honest and genuine way. Everyone has a part to play in what we do and how we develop as a business, so open forums and idea sharing are integral to our success.

Advertising/reputation: We have built a great name in the industry which means that we’re now the “go to” people for clients and candidates. New clients contact us all of the time and great candidates come to us for their next career move. On top of that we use latest recruitment tech and outperform all of our competitors in the sector with a very well resourced (and financed) marketing budget.

Career opportunity: We trust and develop our team, that’s why almost everyone in the business has been promoted at least once during their time with us. If you have the talent we will support and develop you in every way we can.

Hours: We treat people in a grown-up way - that's why we offer flexible hours. Want to come in late - no problem, want to leave early, again no problem. It's all about the work being done.

Home working: Our rather fabulous offices are open all week to every team member, but generally we work from home 3 days a week. We're a fab team who see the value in being together regularly, so you'd need to be able to commute to our Birmingham office (Colmore Row) on 2 set days a week.

Social stuff: We do all kinds of things, lunches, dinners, awards (cheesy but fun), team outings, feel good Fridays, quarterly incentives etc etc etc

Holidays: 26 days holiday (plus more each year) + bank holidays + the option to take another 3 unpaid. Not bad we think..

The environment: Yes there's music playing, fresh fruit, random tea flavours and all the other stuff you'll find in a cool modern office, but what really makes it special is the positive vibe and supportive / happy team.

For the good: We want our team to make a difference both at work and in society. We offer 3 paid days per year to each person for charitable work, encourage charitable initiatives and we're committed to making a substantial annual donation to a charity chosen by the team.

The role
Working with all of our team members you will be speaking to a wide range of candidates from the events industry, from entry-level candidates looking for the first step in their career through to Director level. Through conducting extensive Zoom / Teams and telephone interviews you'll spend the time to understand their experience in detail and how we can help them meet their career aspirations.
Day-to-day responsibilities include:
- Proactively approaching talent through LinkedIn / CV databases / our CRM
- Responding to new candidate registrations
- Interviewing candidates to assess their skills and experience
- Writing up interview notes and updating our CRM
- Pro-actively promoting those candidates internally

What do we look for?
First it’s about chemistry, we have a tight team so you’ll need to be a people person who can enjoy (and add to) our friendly and supportive culture.

Second is experience. For this role candidates must have a minimum of 2 years experience as either a Consultant or Resourcer working within a recruitment agency, preferably within professional services.

We are open to candidates who are looking for reduced daily hours or 4 days a week.
