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. With a stellar year behind us we're busy, we're hiring, and we've got an awesome opportunity for a talented person to join our team.
Why join us?
The jobs market is bouyant so there will be lots of options to consider, but we think we offer something different, and here's just a few of them;
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.
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.
Social stuff: We do all kinds of things, lunches, dinners, awards (cheesy but fun), team outings, feel good Fridays (we finish at 4:30pm 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.
Benefits: 26 days holiday + bank holidays + the option to take another 3 unpaid, season ticket loan, guaranteed bonus, flexi time, etc etc. 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.
This is an end to end recruitment role, but with a very limited focus on sales (there's already lots of existing clients who need looking after). Apart from that it's taking the brief, identifying the best candidates from our extensive database and managing offers. It isn't quite that simple of course, as grit and determination are a pre-requisite, but the process itself is relatively simple.
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 and those from the events industry.
If your experience is within recruitment then you will need to have specialised in permanent recruitment (at a reasonably senior level) and be able to demonstrate success.
If you're from the events industry we find that the easiest transition is for someone from an events / production / experiential or exhibition background - as these are the areas we tend to focus on.
If you like the sound of us then hit the apply button and we can start the conversation.
