Job Description

We’re currently looking for a Senior International Recruitment Consultant to join our UK office in Nottingham.

As we start 2023, EMEA Recruitment is celebrating 15 years in the international market. We remain extremely busy. Both main markets, Switzerland and the Netherlands, are currently registering high numbers of opportunities, and EMEA Recruitment is continuing a period of high growth.

However, our primary objective at EMEA Recruitment is to find Europe’s best candidates for some of the largest and most reputable companies based predominantly in the Netherlands and Switzerland.

This success, now more than ever, depends on us attracting and retaining our top consulting talent. We believe that only these extraordinary people can help our clients to solve their most critical staffing challenges.

2022 proved to be a fantastic year - the year that we broke all records, regular travel back to Switzerland and the Netherlands, shortlisted at the Recruiter Awards, and the year that saw us cementing our reputation as one of the leading international recruitment consultancies in Europe.

At EMEA Recruitment, we have adapted and modified in line with the times, and have confidently shown that we can still provide the same level of development, challenge and support, while working flexibly.

Over the past few months, we have continually pushed expectations; we have hired 21 new people into the business, which has meant we will be moving to brand new bespoke offices in the next couple of months. The outlook for 2023 is hugely positive, and we would like to talk to experienced recruiters looking for a new challenge.

Our reputation has been built up over the past 15 years, winning exclusive partnerships with many European multi-national organisations and an enviable reputation across numerous market sectors.

For those recruiters looking to make the move into international executive search, EMEA Recruitment offers that opportunity. The team is all hands-on, experienced consultants, who work in senior and very lucrative markets. As a business, we prioritise long-term relationships and encourage international travel.

Job requirements:

  • Search experience for the professional services sector would be advantageous
  • High level of intellectual agility and curiosity, strong drive for both success and excellence, an independent self-starter
  • Attention to detail and strong persistence, very well-structured way of working and self-organisation
  • Ability to manage multiple searches through strong project management
  • Fluency in English (German, French or Dutch fluency would also be advantageous)
  • Ability to travel potentially every 6-8 weeks (2-3 days minimum)

Why join EMEA Recruitment?

  • Market-leading base salary, plus industry-leading commission
  • All new consultants receive 50% of your fees billed in the first 6 months
  • Transparent career path from consultant to director level
  • Consultants earn in excess of £100k/€150k/CHF150k
  • Culture of learning – we value continued development at EMEA, we host regular training sessions and workshops for all levels within the business
