Information on the company

Our client is a Start-up recruitment agency focusing on assisting Berlin-based companies in building their software engineering and C-level executive teams. The team comprises of experienced recruiters that have spent the last ten years hiring software engineers purely for Berlin-based companies and, as a result, their knowledge and experience in this area is unparalleled.


What does the company do?

Start-up recruitment agency focusing on assisting Berlin-based companies in building their software engineering and C-level executive teams.

How you expect the candidate to spend their day:

Recruitment is a phone-based job which means that significant portion of the time will be spent speaking to people over the phone (the person should prefer to do exactly this over spending 9 hours staring at an Excel spreadsheet). The aim of your communication will be to build long-lasting relationships and provide recruitment consulting to our clients.

As a team, we are all quite chatty so the person will spend their day being exposed to our questionable sense of humour.

The ideal candidate’s personality and qualifications:

As our second hire, for us personality is key. We are looking for somebody who is positive, cheerful and open. We very much appreciate people who speak up when they have something to say (either agreeing or disagreeing with us).

Secondly, we like people who are ambitious and goal-driven.

Our requirement is to have candidates with successfully completed undergraduate studies. Commercial experience is a nice-to-have.

We do NOT require the following:

Recruitment experience

IT knowledge

What are the perks of working at this company?

Our company is celebrating its first birthday in November. Over the past year, though, we quadrupled our targets and, as such, we are very financially stable. As a result, we already expanded our office, hired one person and are looking to hire 3 people between now and January. Next year, we are looking to move to a 15 people office and, at least, double in team size.

The successful candidate will take part in assisting us achieving this growth. Whilst focusing on our core business - recruitment, the candidate will also take part in making strategic decisions on marketing, future hires, new office etc etc.

As a small, yet, financially strong company, we are under no pressure to generate revenue at any cost. Rather, we prefer to invest the time needed (as long as needed) to really train and develop our new hire.

Our typical training structure covers the first month of employment and combines classroom trainings, online-based studies and examinations, out-of-office trainings (typically on the field next to Tower Bridge) and numerous 1:1 session with the two co-founders.

Another perk is that our clients are based in Berlin. This means that, every now and then, we get to travel to Berlin where we, normally, turn the ‘business trip’ to a 5* luxury holiday.

Of course, on top of this we have our quarterly lunch clubs. On our last one, we went to the restaurant awarded ‘Best Restaurant in London for 2018’. On top of this, he like to celebrate our 6 months and 1 year birthdays. On top of this, we tend to treat ourselves on Friday for lunch after a successful week.

We also have ‘Wellness Wednesdays’ when we attempt some sort of exercise (either tennis or running).

As a small company, we do not have individual KPIs. Rather, we have ‘company’ targets which we aim at achieving as a team.

We offer flexible working hours (core hours 09:00 - 18:00 with one-hour lunch break, however this can be shaped in various ways, including adding a 2 hour lunch break) as well as, upon passing probation, working from home. On Fridays, we finish at 16:00.

Every new hire would receive a brand new iMac.
