Recruitment Consultant 

You’ve been recruiting for 1 or 2 years and realise your boss is just running after their own bonus, micromanaging you to reach their targets, are fed up with unrealistic KPIs and need more trust, flexibility and freedom? You are looking for a grown up environment where you can come in whenever you want – because YES KAREN I want to perform no need to be on my back all day -, work from home on the rainy days when Pyjamas feel more appealing than business fits? Need a fun team around you, but also people you can be inspired from? GREAT, we might have the exact environment you are looking for.

We are looking to expand our Permanent Team with Experienced Recruiters in the Life Sciences Field. Grown from 6 to 15 in one year and counting, you will find not only a highly capable team of recruiters, but also an environment where taking on responsibility and personal growth are encouraged by our leaders.
