Recruitment Partner – Working hybrid or remote with some Travel – London – Gloucestershire

This is a perfect opportunity for a driven and results orientated Resourcing/Recruitment Partner to make a real impact on a successful and growing start-up organisation with its roots in finance/accountancy. Established in 2019, this business has grown its client base rapidly over the past couple of years and is only now maturing its infrastructure and corporate processes and is looking for their first dedicated Recruitment Professional.

As such this role is in many ways a ‘blank sheet’ so would provide a creative candidate with finance recruitment experience a rare opportunity to both devise, own and implement recruitment strategies to meet the demands of this fast paced growing business. The role is an influential one and a great opportunity for someone who is an accomplished communicator and relationship builder to be creative, win buy in and implement their ideas.

With offices in both Gloucestershire and London, although this role could be working from home or hybrid with a few days in the office, with some travel to both locations, the ideal location for someone to be situated would be either of the two locations or somewhere inbetween.
