We are a leading recruitment consultancy for the media and communications industry, established over thirty years ago.

We are looking for an experienced recruiter to join the media and editorial team. Ideally, we are looking for an established recruiter with experience working with academic and/or scientific publishers.

As a company we have ambitious growth plans for the next 3-4 years, with the aim of growing to over 30 staff, so it is an exciting time to join the business with opportunity to grow your own team and niche. We prize strong candidate and client relationships and expect our consultants to spend a substantial amount of time out of the office at in person meetings and networking events. We value flexibility and treating staff as adults with trust and autonomy, illustrated by our new 9-day fortnight option.

As an independent & flexible business there is genuine ability to grow and develop your career here, in whatever direction you wish. Our Managing Director, Divisional Manager and top biller all joined straight from university, showing what can be achieved.

Our media and editorial team have strong relationships with the best media businesses, publishers and news organisations. You will have the opportunity to benefit from our advanced marketing and sourcing tech suite (including cutting-edge AI), a significant degree of autonomy in your work, opportunity to develop our business in the U.S with potential for business trips, and a friendly and supportive team of colleagues.


  • Track record of exceeding financial targets in a recruitment agency setting (experience recruiting for creative, content or marketing agencies would be highly desirable)
  • Desire and drive to build a successful, long-term career in recruitment
  • Confident in sourcing & pitching for new business
