This team will develop business relationships with new and existing clients, ensuring that we understand their needs and that we have the right team to deliver the right solution.

In order to deliver for clients, we must find the best talent on the market, consistently, while ensuring we are delivering on fit as well as skillset, so we are helping businesses hire their leaders of the future.

The team manager will have a proven track record of success in recruitment and while experience in technology recruitment is not specifically required, it would be advantageous.

As well as experience working as a recruiter, the successful candidate will have already gained some experience in successfully leading & managing teams of specialist recruiters, be an individual who sets high standards and have a high level of ambition for what can be achieved with the Customer Solutions Team.
