Experienced Recruitment Consultant - Marketing

Experienced Recruitment Consultants sought to help expand our offering within the Data, Marketing and Digital recruitment markets.

We've been doing this for a long time and are trusted by both clients and candidates to always:

  • Act professionally

  • Be ethical in approach

  • Value relationships more than transactions

  • Be subject matter experts in our fields of specialty

  • Value our employees, reflecting a family-centric environment that people enjoy being a part of

It's been a successful story, with Blue Pelican being recognised as a valued supplier to many different clients, large and small.

You could argue we're punching above our weight when you find out our client roster, and recognise this has been achieved by a company based out of Tunbridge Wells, typically competing with the big agency names in London.

That success has been achieved in part by the environment we've developed.

One giving employees room to breathe and approach the establishing of their desks in a way they know can be successful.

Valuing relationships with candidates and clients, recognising these only become more fruitful over time.

We recognise our people are key to our success.

Around 40% of us have been with the company for 5+ years, and we have a strong track record of internal promotion based on individual merit, from 1st year Consultant to Managers of divisions.

Having a strong pedigree in industry means we have an extensive candidate and client network which we nurture and develop every day.

We are driven by delivering an awesome recruitment service to both clients and candidates, and 95% of them would recommend us.

We're looking to appoint experienced recruiters at either Consultant and/or Senior Consultant level.

Self-motivated individuals who will own the full recruitment lifecycle; from setting out a market development strategy, identifying and engaging with target clients through to finding the best individuals within the market via all channels at their disposal.

Current opportunities will work across all industries but specialising within these key skills areas:

  • MI & Reporting

  • Market Research, Market Intelligence

  • Data Science & Data Engineering

  • Media Planning & Analytics

  • Digital - UX/UI & Technical

  • Agency Account Managers

  • Product/Propositions & Commercial

Cross-selling in order to present a broader recruitment solution to clients is positively encouraged, so developing your desk will be a mixture of your own effort and supportive efforts from the other Consultants around you.

You will need to demonstrate the confidence and desire to build relationships and open doors with new clients whilst also developing the value of existing accounts.

We'll also be looking for a drive to provide a best-in-class service and great customer experience.
