We have been looking to consolidate after a prolonged period of growth, but high demand for our recruitment services in the area of social care means that we need to find an experienced / senior recruitment consultant to help us deliver on both current vacancies and a strong pipeline of future work. This is not a sales role as we have Dawar Hashmi and Alison Nimmo (see their profiles here) generating lots of new business and building our brand in key markets, but we need somebody who can help the existing team to manage and deliver exceptional recruitment solutions. The level of vacancy ranges from individual headhunting projects at Director level with salaries well over £100k, down through Assistant Director, Head of Service, Team Manager vacancies to large campaigns recruiting dozens of social workers for local authorities.  What differentiates us from others is that we apply a researched based headhunting methodology to all of our work.  We never work in competition with other agencies and as such are retained to work on an exclusive basis with our clients. So if you love social care recruitment, but not the sales, or you are an experienced recruiter working in another area but have […]
