With an imminent move to new and larger offices in Spring 2023, we have set ourselves the ambitious target of doubling our headcount this year, so we need the very best talent to help us achieve this goal. 

The Opportunity:

The Research & Delivery Consultant’s principal responsibilities will include:

Maximising coverage of clients’ vacancies and search campaigns through:

  • Taking detailed briefs from recruiters to fully understand the client’s preferred candidate profile.
  • Performing detailed candidate searches across LinkedIn Recruiter and employment websites to create applicant longlists for screening by recruiters.
  • Managing and prioritizing workflow with quality control criteria including projected fees, time constraints, level of decision maker, exclusivity levels and/or client history.
  • Implementing a combination of research methodologies including pre-defined search  filters, Boolean logic, and direct competitor mapping
  • Ensuring that all longlists are recorded accurately and in a timely manner on the company’s CRM platform.

Optimising the development of recruiters’ sector specialisms through:

  • Identifying premium mid-market to executive level talent within current specialist verticals and target sectors who are open to considering an employment move.
  • Working with consultants to generate market intelligence and competitor matrices for the proactive marketing of candidates to prospective employers.
  • Identifying key decision makers and target stakeholders within prospect clients, including relevant accurate and compliant contact data
  • Developing an encyclopaedic glossary of keywords, terminology, and tangible search terms that are geographically specific and relevant to key territories.

  • Strong organisational abilities, attention to detail, research, and analytical abilities
  • Strong familiarity with LinkedIn and Microsoft 365
