Focusing on USA based clients directly from our Manchester office, we offer the opportunity to work alongside seasoned recruiters and managed by someone who is not only dedicated to the craft but has also found an incredible niche with tech clients (such as Facebook and Amazon for example) but the true purple patch has been the businesses we can partner with and help scale exclusively.

  • 12-week training scheme from Day 1, followed by specialized development training throughout your career
  • Clear performance + competency based promotion criteria
