Work For Us

Established in 2010, Austin Rose has become known by both its candidates and clients as a professional but friendly firm that can be relied on to provide honest and informative advice. We believe that our continued growth and trusted brand is very much down to both the professional consultants who make up our team and the environment that we have created which allows them to flourish.

We have exciting growth plans and are looking for talented individuals to be a part of this. Whether you are an experienced recruitment professional or a graduate calibre individual with strong sales / commercial experience in a business to business environment, you can learn quickly through excellent training, whilst having the opportunity to enjoy success from the outset and great earnings potential.

Whilst our London office offers our consultants the ability to meet clients and candidates in a professional but relaxed environment, the majority of our recruitment efforts take place at our modern office suite in Loughton. This Greater London location was chosen to suit our primary value – success through long term relationships. We believe that for a consultancy to be successful it must build long term relationships with both clients and candidates, and that this can only be achieved if we have continuity of service within our own team. To this end we offer a career that in many ways mirrors that of a Central London firm, including city salaries, but without the need to commute on a daily basis.

 

In addition to a Central London level salary, our competitive package includes:

  • Uncapped commission scheme up to 30%
  • Additional performance related bonus
  • Incentive to earn additional annual leave
  • Contributory pension scheme
  • Free car parking
  • Regular social events
  • Team-based rewards to include overseas holidays (last trip was to New York!)

 

The team at Austin Rose often receive feedback from our clients and candidates that we seem different to other Recruitment Consultancies. The testimonials on our Home Page give a strong indication as to how we are regarded in the market.

We believe that feedback comes from the core values instilled throughout our business:  

Long term focus – our stable recruitment team focus on developing long-term working relationships with our clients and candidates. We believe that this cannot be driven by key performance indicators (KPIs) or by volume-based sales efforts. We believe in providing long term plans for all consultant’s careers as well as an environment that promotes work life balance and family-friendly work arrangements.

Quality over quantity – We provide an expert, quality service. We will contact clients if we have a great candidate who we believe suits their requirements, and candidates if we feel we have a suitable role for them. We do not call either if we have no reason to do so. 

Transparency and meritocracy – Our consultants understand what is expected of them and in return they are given a clear plan of how to achieve pay rises and additional annual leave entitlement. This transparency also enables the team to feel confident that all of their colleagues are on a level playing field based purely on meritocracy.

Respect – All members of the Austin Rose team endeavour to create a mutually supportive working environment. We are open with each other and our consultants are comfortable approaching the management team when queries arise.

Collaboration – We believe that we are stronger as a collective unit. When their colleagues are not available, each member of the team will action any required work as if it’s their own. In this way we maintain a consistent and supportive service to our clients and candidates.

Trust – To operate a successful recruitment consultancy without a focus on KPIs requires high levels of trust from the management team as well as motivation from the consultants in order to gain long-term results. Our pride lies in hiring recruitment consultants who are driven and can work autonomously.

Invest in the best – Austin Rose endeavour to provide an advertising plan that is amongst the best in the market as well as investing heavily in our state of the art CRM and IT systems. As an accredited member of REC, we have a commitment to industry best practice.

Fun – We can remunerate you well and provide you with all of the support in order to be successful. However we understand that a happy company is a productive company and therefore try hard to make Austin Rose a fun place to work. We’ll expect you to work hard and uphold our high standards of professionalism, passion and productivity, but it is much easier to achieve this if you have a smile on your face.

Therefore, we welcome ambitious individuals who share the understanding that hard work and enthusiasm are vital qualities for excelling in the recruitment industry. In exchange we will endeavour to provide you with the most positive work environment, fulfilling career and a work life balance that enables you to enjoy life outside of work.
