Marketing Recruitment Consultant
We want a recruiter, with experience in the marketing, creative or digital industry, who can help us further establish and grow our business in the North. In return, we offer a relaxed, progressive and ambitious working environment, alongside people who are passionate about what they do.
We need someone in this role who can talk recruitment matters with everyone from marketing directors to junior marketers. Who can come in and hit the ground running, drive business across both permanent and/or contract markets, and help us establish new relationships in the region.
You might come with an established network you can harness, or you might be relocating to the North after a stint working in London in a similar recruitment agency. You’ll have a sixth sense for a good opportunity and be a dab hand at converting enquiries.
Who do we work with?
Agencies and studios that specialise in marketing, brand, design and digital as well as internal marketing departments for leading brands. We carefully and craftily match them up with talented people.
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!’.
And 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 and a strong track record in recruitment, ideally already within marketing, creative or digital, though this isn’t essential.
What is essential is that you care about what you do, you enjoy building genuine and lasting relationships, and you waste no time seizing opportunities.
Strong negotiation and communication skills go without saying. You're happy to manage your own time and workload. In short, you're an all-round good egg who's ambitious and driven. If you're genuinely passionate about helping businesses build talented teams, you'll fit right in at Craft.
You’ll love working here
We would say that, wouldn't we. But if you’re like us and in this game for the joy of helping people build satisfying careers – while being generously rewarded along the way – then we’re the employer for you.
Commission and 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 - last year the whole team went to Amsterdam for the weekend (all-expenses paid of course) and we’re in the process of organising this year's 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.
