Recruitment Consultant adverts are all much of a muchness most of the time. Being honest, why would someone leave one recruitment agency to join another? What truly separates one agency from another? Our Global MD, Farooq Mohammed, has attempted to distill this and focus on the qualities that make Digital Gurus unique...
"I often get asked, “How did you guys scale DG up from a bedroom, to an international brand and with people who stay for years?”. The answer is really simple. We hired outstanding people and gave them the tools to do their job. My commitment became to provide the tools that individuals needed to do their job well: the job boards, a brilliant brand, budget for events, a quality office, learning and development support and an excellent commission scheme. So that’s what we did and over the years we kept that core. I did change the commission scheme a few times and probably strayed off a winning formula but we have gone back to a scheme that rewards each Recruitment Consultant for doing really well. We have great offices and we have people that know their markets intimately.
So, why are we looking for a new Recruitment Consultant? Well, we have a big old space in Manchester and we want to fill it. It’s about scale in this office, getting exceptional people who feel like their current place doesn’t appreciate their efforts, doesn’t get transactional recruitment, isn’t agile or simply they don’t get on with their leaders. We are seriously ambitious about becoming market leaders in our space, digital and technology. I would love to work with people who want to help us achieve this, scale up a business and provide top service to their customers. In return I promise you a few things:
Freedom to genuinely own & shape your desk (with a track record of promotions from within) | Existing & hugely impressive client base to leverage | Leadership team with deep expertise, who will back you all the way, listen to your ideas and encourage you to think outside the box | Great basic salary and commission scheme | Funky offices with all the tech recruiter perks (table tennis etc!) and | A fun collaborative team to share it with.
1. An excellent commission scheme, up to 40% 💰
2. An environment where you will learn and develop with training and support to improve you 🔨
3. An environment where you will work hand in glove with a team that is desperate to make a difference 👨👩👦👦
4. An environment where we encourage thinking outside the box to make a difference, i.e. “How do we break the mould, not be so generic and stay ahead of the curve?”. 💡
5. A brand that will enable you to make a difference in your market 🚀
6. A leadership team that will back you to the hilt 🎯
I would genuinely encourage those who want to achieve more, do more and want more, to reach out. Let’s have a conversation and see if the two parties are naturally aligned.
And yes I did write this advert myself…..why? Because getting world class talent is the most important thing our organisation does."
We are looking for experienced recruiters, ideally 2+ years' experience to join our DG family in Manchester. We set our consultants up to be specialists in their areas, so previous technology or digital experience is a plus but not essential...we can teach that knowledge, we can't teach values and attitude!
