Job Description

No pointless KPI's | Great team ethos | Exciting event sector | It doesn't get much better!

Who are we? We're an award winning recruitment agency that started small, has grown substantially and is now on a fast track trajectory to even greater heights! We're a business full of passionate, hardworking and fun-loving people who work for some of the best creative, event, experiential, AV, Exhibition and corporate clients. After continued strong growth we're busy, we're hiring, and we've got an awesome opportunity for a talented person to join our team.

Why join us? There will be lots of options to consider, but we think we offer something different, here's just a few of the differences; 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 also outperform all of our competitors in the sector with a very well resourced (and financed) advertising 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. For example, two of our Directors joined us as Account Managers, and five of our Account Managers joined us as Resourcers. If you have the talent and drive we will support and develop you in every way we can.

Social stuff: We do all kinds of things, lunches, dinners, awards (cheesy but fun), team outings, feel good Fridays (we finish at 5:00pm and have a beer), quarterly incentives (the last one was a day out at the Polo - the next is the Crystal Maze) amongst many other things. Just because it's a good thing to do. Holidays: 26 days holiday + bank holidays + the option to take another 3 unpaid. Not bad we think..

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

The role This is crucial role within the team, working closely with our fabulous Account Managers to find the very best event talent for our clients. There's lots of training (on desk and classroom) in both how we do recruitment and the events industry overall, so when you start speaking to candidates you'll be 100% comfortable and confident. There's lots of different aspects of the role, including; - Identifying talent from our existing network or approaching potential candidates through social media

- Collating advertising responses
- Interviewing potential candidates
- Preparing a shortlist of candidates
- Formatting CV's

Often we find that the skills and experience gained within this role (in time) leads to promotion into an Account Management role.

What do we look for? First it's about chemistry, we have a tight team so you'll need to be a sociable person who doesn't take themselves too seriously and can enjoy the friendly office vibe. Second is experience. There are two routes for anyone joining us - those from a recruitment background who want to join a friendly team without pointless targets and those from the events industry who are looking for something different.
