  • London


We're Socially Responsible Recruitment or SR2 as we like to be known & we're challenging the status quo of Recruitment 💪

We recently placed 34th on The Sunday Times 100 Britain's fastest-growing private companies list, won "Recruitment Agency of the Year" in 2022, We won "Best New Agency" in 2020, and are a B-Corp certified business 🏆

It's growth-time 🚀 as we look to scale from 65 - 100 heads and globalise the business with further expansion into Europe and America.

Our contract team currently is focused on UK business and has over 200 + runners with some of the fastest-growing consultancy and scale-up clients. We are looking to mirror this growth in Europe and to build a best-in-industry team covering Germany initially, then growing into NL & Nordics.

We are already operating in Germany on a permanent basis, our GmbH, & have an established team and client base that can be leveraged.

We are actively interviewing for 360's and are looking to land 2-3 individuals into the team that is sales focused from day one. We see this team growing to 10 + heads over the coming 12 months and for the role to quickly progress into a key leadership role at SR2.

Prior experience of successfully operating in if not setting up contract functions in Europe and desire to manage & scale a team is essential.

We have a great brand behind us and see this as one of our biggest growth areas over the coming years and a massive opportunity for the right individual 🤩

  • Working with the SR2 leadership team to define tech verticals and entry points into these markets
  • Building a best-in-industry contract team around you - we will give you autonomy and budget from day one to scale your team
  • Cross-selling into our existing European client base
  • Driving best practice 360 contract recruitment and self-sufficiency
  • Reporting to our existing Contract Director and will be a part of the SR2 leadership team from day one


What actually is 'socially responsible' recruitment?

Well, it's recruitment, done better. Done by putting people ahead of profit, never treating anyone as a commodity or means to an end.

Done with a care for community, the environment and with a commitment to giving back and as a B-Corp have the highest official accreditation to prove it.

For too long our industry's had a bad rep. We're changing that. We believe in making headlines for the right reasons, showing that business can be done with a double bottom line and that doing so enables attraction of the very best talent and ensures long term customer loyalty.

We're authentic, socially responsible humans first and incredible recruiters second. By design.

We connect the finest tech & digital talent across the UK, US and Europe with awesome and innovative tech brands. We're big fans of Tech for Good and love nothing more than working with a variety of businesses, experiencing different cultures and diverse ways of working.

  • Highly experienced in Contract 360 recruitment within the European Tech market

  • grows
  • A cracking personality and amazing communication skills
  • A good human who always acts ethically & morally with honesty & integrity
  • Has the ability to take accountability & the willingness to work hard


In this role you will get:

  • A very well-compensated offer with profit shares, guarantees, milestones etc.
  • Up to 40% Commission + Annual Bonuses
  • Team Overrides as the team grows
  • No thresholds - earn on everything you bill
