We use our integrity, insight and skill to bring leaders together with organisations who share their values. Now appointing more than 200 people every year, this is a particularly exciting time to join us. Our consulting team has grown significantly this year and we have recently completed a review of the structure and roles in our crucial support team. We’re poised for further growth and expansion and are also developing our corporate capability beyond this. A fast-growing executive search and interim management firm, we are a strong and close-knit team united in our aspiration to make a positive difference to society. Our clients – from Co-op Group, to Blenheim Palace, to Cancer Research UK, RNIB and the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea – choose us because they know our passion for finding the right leaders is grounded in personal commitment and relentless focus on quality.

The Role

We’re looking for new colleagues who can bring experience of working in a service-delivery environment, or who want to use professional experience gained in another setting to develop into a leading recruiter of the future. As Assistant Consultant, you can expect to play a vital role supporting and co-ordinating all aspects of successful assignment delivery, from scheduling to candidate liaison, search support and helping with new bid preparation.

These are fast-paced roles in a rapidly evolving business, in which you can expect to build professional knowledge quickly, gaining insight into, and hands-on experience of, a range of different disciplines. You’ll be managing competing priorities as part of a core team working on a range of appointments and a sharp focus on quality, along with effective communication skills, will be essential.

We offer excellent opportunities for promotion, with a clear progression pathway in place, along with opportunities to help shape future services and ways of working. We are proud to stand out from the crowd in our industry and are looking for people who, like us, want to contribute to social change and progress.

If you believe you have the skills, experiences and qualities we are seeking, we look forward to hearing from you.
