Exciting news. We’re looking for a Junior Recruitment Consultant to join the Craft team.
This is a new role in our business - to begin with you’ll work closely with the current team to better understand our market, clients and the positions we recruit for. In time you’ll have your own area of expertise within the creative, digital and marketing industry.
As a business we’re at an exciting time in our growth. There’s an established, motivated and talented team to learn from - but also opportunities aplenty of carve out your own path and successes.
Who do we work with?
Creative agencies and studios that specialise in marketing, brand, design and digital. We carefully and craftily match them up with talented people. We cover tech, digital marketing and client services needs too. It’s a hugely rewarding industry to be involved in - we love it.
Positive and forward-thinking attitudes are infectious, inspiring and all-round good for business. As well as the day-to-day stuff, we attend and contribute to industry events, and we love a creative collaboration or two, too.
We tend to do things a little differently to your average recruitment business. We launched our own beer, brewed in collaboration with local beer heroes Northern Monk, which we send to all successful candidates as a little ‘well done!’.
We like to give back to the industry too, so we run a regular event where we bring together leading creative directors and budding designers in need of a helping hand - called Portfolio Lab.
What we want from you
You're driven, friendly and self-motivated with a commercial mindset. You enjoy building genuine and lasting relationships, and you waste no time seizing opportunities.
You’ll find this position rewarding if you’ve got an inquisitive mind who wants to learn and develop in a market that’s truly rewarding to recruit for.
Tip-top communication skills go without saying in this role. We’re looking for someone who can build rapport, consult and influence whether that be face to face, over the phone or with a well directed email.
An eye for great creative work might help, perhaps you have a design or marketing degree? That’s by no means essential though – more important is that you’re an all-round good egg who's ambitious, works hard and cares about what you do.
You’ll love working here
We would say that, wouldn't we. But if you’re looking for a role in recruitment where you can help businesses build great teams and people make life-changing career moves – then we’re the employer for you.
Commission and regular incentives
We have a generous commission structure in place for all consultants - so you’ll be handsomely rewarded for your efforts. We also run 6-monthly team incentives too - the whole team went to Amsterdam for the weekend (all-expenses paid of course) and we’re in the process of organising this years trip as we speak.
Flexible working and time off
We believe that all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy (or Jill a dull girl). So we champion a good work-life balance here at Craft. We reward results rather than hours worked, which means you're free to manage your workload and your hours in ways that suit us all.
We also finish early on Fridays, and offer 25 days holiday (plus bank holidays) as standard. Plus one extra year of holiday for every year's service, up to 30 days.
Help us grow
Now's a good time to join us. Craft is getting bigger, always getting better, and looking for a likeminded ambitious type to help grow our brilliant client base and reputation. Your ideas and opinions count too. So you'll have a say in business decisions that help us become the go-to creative and digital recruiter across the north of England.
