Senior Recruitment Consultant (Data & Technology) – Manchester

Posted on January 12, 2021 by Jonathon Webley

Our Business
Agile Recruit is a data and technology recruitment specialist. Due to growth in our business we are looking to expand our capability and hire experienced consultants (senior / principal etc) to our DevOps and Data Engineering teams. The roles can be based out of our Manchester or Milton Keynes offices or be remote based, and you’ll be working on a blend of existing accounts and new business. Most of our team operate dual desks across contract (umbrella and SOW) and permanent positions but this could be tailored differently if required.

Over the past 18 months we’ve invested significantly in our recruitment technology and approach to market and the make-up of our group of companies including Agile Solutions, and Agile Tech Services will allow us to continue to take advantage of market opportunities.

Within our business are consultants with huge amounts of experience and we are looking for individuals who share our dedication to providing a level of service for our clients and candidates that goes beyond CV filtering and booking interviews. We have a truly consultative approach to the way we work, we’re not afraid to challenge the status-quo and we are known experts in our domain.

Why we’re different
We’re not your stereotypical recruitment firm! Here’s what makes us different:

  • Grown-up business attitude – Most of us here at Agile have been doing this for a while so we have a grown-up mentality that is based on mutual trust, and shared expectations. We offer flexible working and working from home.
  • No Micro-management – you are coming to us with experience so we'll give you the flexibility to work in the manner that you believe best suits the needs of your clients and candidates.
  • No KPIs – we don’t set unnecessary KPIs, it’s up to you to do what is necessary to build your business, and of course we’ll guide you along the way.
  • No Outrageous Financial Target – You heard correct! we don’t set your targets YOU do. We only set a minimum expectation; you pledge what you want to achieve!
  • Collaboration – regular catch ups, stand ups and a culture of collaboration. Here at Agile everyone knows they’re not the finished article and we help each other to succeed.
  • The Agile Group – Agile Solutions are a leading UK Data consultancy. This provides us unparalleled access to technical expertise, business development and industry engagement opportunities.
  • Commission – As well as your basic, our simple scheme that you can download from our website https://www.agilerecruit.com/join-us/#benefits returns up to 40% of gross profit.
  • Entrepreneurial Spirit – Got an idea – Lets try it!
