As an entrepreneurial firm, we’re seeking a Senior Recruiter today who can become the partner of tomorrow.

This is a fast-paced, dynamic role for a self-starter who is motivated to expand the business in niche public affairs markets on a global scale. Successful candidates will have a strong record managing a client portfolio and leading clients independently with confidence.

The benefits

  • Work across the full recruitment cycle, ensuring the people whose life you have changed are thriving in their role and see you as their trusted advisor;
  • Become the preferred advisor for influential clients with challenging recruitment missions that are incredibly fulfilling to manage;
  • Influence how the company develops in terms of new segments and markets;
  • Work alongside some of Europe’s most connected public affairs professionals in a super-charged entrepreneurial culture;
  • Join a meritocratic team where talent and drive come before seniority;
  • Partner track position with no cap on bonuses;
