Senior Recruitment Consultant - Client Services


Senior Recruitment Consultant - Client Services - Integrated/Digital

£40k + bonus


About Us.

Founded in 2008 DNA is a boutique recruitment company focusing on the marketing, digital and tech sectors. We have coverage across the whole of the UK with our key people based in London/South and Leeds.

We cover Client Services, Strategy & Planning, Marketing, Creative & Design, Business Development & Project Management. Within these divisions, we work on everything from Account Directors to Marketing Managers, from Creative Directors to Client Services Directors, from UX Designers to E-commerce Managers and everything in between. We provide clients with recruitment solutions spanning Permanent, Fixed Term Contracts, Freelance, Retained Executive Search and various Business Consulting services.

We regard ourselves as a modern thinking company with a grown-up attitude to staff. We have offices in London and Leeds but our consultants tend to work from home the vast majority of the time and that will still be the case when the current restrictions are lifted. It is completely up to you to decide when you come into the office and when you work from home and how you grow your client portfolio. We provide you with all the kit you need to work remotely; laptop, mobile phone, access to company database and as much support as you need.

DNA has recently partnered with Iliad Ventures and we will benefit from Iliad's significant experience of growing businesses within the recruitment sector. This allows DNA to embrace a journey that benefits from market synergies from both a domestic and international perspective.

Client Services Desk.

We're looking for a Client Services focused recruiter to join DNA and help run the division - we'll be frank, this is a really hot desk with lots of clients and candidates (so limited business development needed).

Operating in the agency market since 2008, DNA has long standing relationships with many of the world's leading agencies (a healthy mix of networks and independents) and so the heritage and track record is in place for a Client Services recruiter to come in and really hit the ground running.

The Role.

Client Services is a core area of the DNA business. We work across the integrated spectrum from leading Advertising agencies through to Digital, Direct, Retail and Activation and Design and Branding clients.

We are looking for 360 recruiters with existing experience in Client Services to work on a defined portfolio of clients.

You will have a strong network of contacts (both clients and candidates) in ATL, Integrated and Digital sectors. The best thing is you'll be working with colleagues with a range of experience to share knowledge and collaborate with.

What We Offer.

  • Salary to £40k
  • Market leading commission scheme which pays up to 45%
  • The opportunity to join the DNA share option scheme which will allow high performers to benefit from participation in Iliad's short, medium and long-term prospects.
  • 25 days holiday plus a day off for your birthday and a day for moving house.
  • The opportunity to autonomously run a desk and for the more ambitious, grow and run the Client Services division.
  • A strong supporting back-office team covering finance, resourcing, on-boarding, marketing, training and tech support.
  • Clearly defined career path based on performance and targets from day one.
  • LI Recruiter licences plus the use of a team of experienced resources.
  • The freedom and flexibility to work from home or in the office depending on your work schedule.
  • Team away days and once a month we have a team get-together in London to plan, brainstorm and throw ideas around the table. We want our consultants to thrive in their job.
  • Full membership to The Stanley Building (The Office Group) and 17 other London locations.
  • Fully mobile tech set-up at home.

What We're Looking For.

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

  • Ambitious, commercially astute and entrepreneurial by nature.
  • Marketing/digital recruitment experience; 360 recruitment or targeted headhunting background.
  • A track record in building and managing client relationships, whether from scratch or existing relationships.
  • Strong organisational skills; database management (Bullhorn experience beneficial, but not crucial).

To Apply.

This is an urgent hire so please send your CV via the link or email Ali Wallace () or call him anytime for a P&C discussion on 07984 171873.
