Title Exeter Principal Recruitment Consultant – Executive Search
Categories Devon, Executive, Exeter, IT, Recruitment
Salary £25,000 – £30,00
Location Exeter
Job Information

Permanent people are recruiting for an established recruitment company which were founded in Germany in 2000, a boutique mid-senior search firm working on exciting assignments for a very loyal blue-chip client base.

Their UK team, based in smart offices in Newton Abbot, work primarily on non-UK searches, particularly, but not exclusively, German speaking countries. Due to continued strong performance, we are looking to hire an experienced recruitment consultant to join the team.

On paper, this is a classic 360 recruiter, sell and deliver role – so what’s different?

– focus on high quality, high-level work (typical search profile salary £80K plus).

– predominantly retained and/or exclusive assignments.

– primary focus on non-UK work.

– well established client base.

– flexible working possible.

– friendly, fun team.

Most of their staff have worked for “big name” firms in the past, which means we all know what we’re doing, but we don’t need or expect 24/7 KPI monitoring, strict call times etc. If you’re good, we let you flourish.

Ideal Candidate

You should have gained solid previous experience in a recruitment consultancy and will be adept at all main steps in the recruitment process, from identifying and closing leads, sourcing and screening candidates through to closing out the hiring process and establishing solid account relationships.

A functional speciality and previous experience of working on non-UK assignments would be great, as would any European language skills. You have broad business savvy and are able to communicate with high-level candidates.

You will need to be able demonstrate the ability not just to “sell”, but also to keep clients happy in the long term. You will understand the need to manage your revenue pipeline rather than living from deal to deal.


  • Competitive salary.
  • Commission structure paid at 30% of anything over and above the small threshold.
  • Friendly and welcoming company and staff.
  • Pension Scheme.
  • Generous holiday allowance.
  • Flexible working hours.
