Technical Consultant, Recruitment (26669)

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

Science, engineering, software or maths background

If you have a software, engineering, scientific or mathematical background, and you’re looking for a rewarding, people-oriented and proactive role in business, consider ECM. We offer an environment where you’ll make good use of your technical background, won’t be “micro-managed”, and will be given the support you need to thrive. Rewards are directly geared to your own efforts.

You will be:

  • Degree qualified in a technical or numerate subject, with an abiding interest in technology including in disciplines other than your own.
  • Either starting out in your career, or have prior scientific or engineering experience, whether commercial or academic, in a field in which we recruit.
  • An excellent communicator, able to express yourself well in writing, and with a good telephone manner.
  • Detail-oriented and very capable of multitasking.

These qualities will serve you well, as you are:

  • Confident but self aware; collaborative but gently competitive; honest, tactful and on occasion persuasive, but not “pushy”.
  • Self-propelled, finding things out yourself without waiting to be told.
  • Someone who takes direction well, but doesn’t generally need it day to day.
  • Seeking achievement directly linked to your own initiative and hard work.

ECM are the high-tech recruitment experts, 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. Your main task will be to assist candidates throughout their job search, and support our client companies finding the people they need. We most definitely aren’t the typical “pushy” agency you might have experienced.

We offer a relaxed working environment, a 37.5 hour working week with core hours, 24 days holiday plus bank holidays and, after passing probation, home working on Fridays. Our offices are just north-east of Cambridge and we have parking on site.

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.
