Technical Recruitment Consultant (26401)

Cambridge, office-based
OTE £35k first year, plus excellent prospects

Software, electronics, scientific, engineering or maths background, spring 2022 start

Do you have a software, engineering, scientific or mathematical background? Are you people-oriented, proactive and looking for a role with reward directly geared to your own efforts? And seeking an environment where you won't be "micro-managed" although given the support you need to thrive?

Then we could have the role for you! Join the High-Tech Recruitment Experts.

About you: You are interested in technology and degree qualified in a technical/numerate subject. Perhaps you have prior industry experience but are looking for a new career. You are confident but self-aware, competitive but collaborative, honest, tactful and on occasion persuasive but not "pushy". You are self-propelled and will find things out for yourself without waiting to be told. You take direction well but don’t need it day to day. Most of all, you like the sound of achievement directly linked to your own initiative and hard work.

Your main task will be to find suitable, high calibre candidates for our clients – leading UK high-tech companies. Communication is key, so you’ll need to be able to express yourself well in writing, and have an excellent telephone manner and good attention to detail.

You’ll have technical knowledge of one or more of the fields in which we recruit: software, electronics, engineering or the applied sciences. And you’ll be keen to learn more about other fields.

About us: ECM is a specialist recruitment consultancy with an enviable reputation. All our consultants are engineers or scientists who have worked in the industries for which we recruit. We most definitely aren’t the typical “pushy” agency you might have experienced.

Based in our own modern offices close to central Cambridge, we have room for expansion and are actively seeking to grow our business. We offer a friendly, relaxed but professional environment, working within a small team. Office hours are standard and not excessive, so our consultants’ evenings and weekends are their own.

We are a long-established company, but we are by no means complacent – your ideas, initiative and input into the business will be welcomed.

Be part of our success: You’ll receive training and mentoring to help you quickly become productive here. And with an uncapped commission structure, your earnings potential is unlimited.


Please note: even if this type of job is not of interest, do contact us now if you do have the background indicated - we may well have other opportunities that you would be suited to. And of course, we always get your permission before submitting your CV to a company.
