Recruitment Consultant

Humanising the world of work 
Over the last ten years, Bailey & French have grown from a small group of recruiters forging an authentic and transparent way of working, to a grown consultancy that delivers a broad range of innovative people solutions across the employee experience. We’re pioneers in positive psychology.

Our Recruitment business is in a strong and exciting position to advise clients and candidates about their specific needs, helping them make informed choices. We offer a range of solutions: Contingency Searches, Retained Assignments, Interim and Contract Services, Team Hires, as well as Market Mapping and Competitor Insight. You’ll work at the heart of the Risk, Compliance and Technology markets. 

We’re proud to be different: we don’t want people to just match candidates with job specs, we want someone who’ll understand their client’s needs and what a candidate is looking for, so they can place people in roles that will ultimately change their lives for the better.

We need you!
Are you brilliant at developing human connections? Could you get the best from candidates, clients and colleagues?
Are you someone who likes to work people out? 
Are you super organised and love efficiency? Someone who can manage and move deals through your pipeline in order to achieve financial targets? We believe in rewarding effort, hard work and success.
Experience in recruitment isn’t necessary as you’ll get lots of opportunities to develop. We offer a great combination of formal, classroom and ‘at desk’ training. We’ll help you discover and play to your strengths. Bailey & French consultants are collaborative and supportive. You’ll be surrounded by a team with a mix of experiences in and out of the workplace, who’ll help you grow. 

This is an exciting role where you’ll be proactive and have an impact on the overall growth of the company.

Working for us brings benefits!
