Prior Recruitment Experience:

We can take individuals with recruitment experience and teach about our market. Our approach is quite different to a transactional recruitment role, but we are willing to consider people that genuinely want a change of approach.

We are equally happy to consider those from outside of industry and graduates with no prior experience but the right core skills and personality.

In short, we are looking for a hardworking, solutions-oriented individual who just gets it and we can teach you the rest.
