Who are we looking for?

We’re on an exciting journey and we’re looking for someone who is fully engaged, thrives on being successful and reporting on their results.  We’re looking for someone who will share the feeling that our clients get when they win new business – the buzz, the high, the sense of achievement.

As a team, we love the thrill of smashing targets, supporting each other with our positive energy and showing grit and determination when the going gets tough.  We’re still a relatively small team, so whilst you’ll have the support of your Line Manager, we don’t have time to micro-manage – so you’ll need to rely on your own passion and drive to make every day count.

Finally, integrity is key to our culture, so if you’re used to cutting corners or saying ‘that will do’ then this role isn’t for you.  You’ll be working with a company that has a great reputation for being open and honest with support from your colleagues who share your passion and drive.
