Head of Embedded - Recruitment - Fully Remote

Job description


Founded in 2008, DNA is a boutique recruitment company making strides in creative, digital, marketing and technology.

We help our clients find and attract top talent in client services, strategy & planning, marketing, creative & design, business development & technology.

We put our people first. Our culture is supportive and collaborative as well as fun, vibrant and diverse. We operate a flexible and remote working model, meaning you can operate as a home-based consultant, with the flexibility to work in our London whenever you wish. We are committed to investing in the best recruitment technology and have embraced the latest cloud-based CRM and interviewing software for flexible working and self-management.


DNA is growing and as a result we are looking for an ambitious and enthusiastic leader to manage, develop and grow the DNA Embedded solution for our existing clients and build strong relationships to onboard new clients.

If you are looking for a big opportunity - then you've found it. We want you to head up the offering across our established client base and ultimately build out the desk around them. As Head of Embedded, you will be responsible for account management whilst overseeing a team of talent sourcing specialists.

You will be "hands on", working with the wider team to ensure all requirements and service levels are delivered seamlessly. We work collaboratively across desks and functions offering a supportive and motivating working environment. Yes we are a remote first business, but we see the well-being and success of the team as a top priority.

We invest heavily in our tech which includes top rated recruitment software and tools. You will have access to in-house marketing and back office support to meet the needs of you, the clients, and eventually your team.


This will be a fast paced and challenging role, so we are looking for someone who can really hit the ground running.

Ideally, you will have:

  • At least 3-5 year's advertising and marketing recruitment experience; 360 recruitment or digital recruitment

  • Experience delivering an embedded service to clients across the DNA specialist sectors

  • A track record in building and managing client relationships whether from scratch or an existing relationship

  • Experience managing remote onshore/offshore teams - experience of South Africa teams is an advantage

  • Strong organisational skills: database management

  • Experience working with numerous candidates to build solid relationships and develop a network of talent

  • Ability to generate leads for other desks in DNA would be a plus

  • Commercial and entrepreneurial by nature

Salary: £40K - £50K + Bonus (£100K OTE)
