In this fast-changing world, an organisation’s greatest competitive advantage comes from having the best people. It's true at Hudson too, which is why we are looking for you!

Your role as a specialist recruitment consultant

Being a specialist recruitment consultant means that you will have true, deep specialisation for roles within job functions.

You’ll become an expert in the skills, salaries and trends for those roles, whether that’s for Digital Marketing within Sales & Marketing, Business Partnering within Accounting & Finance, or UX Design within Technology.


Find and engage the best talent

In today’s recruitment market, candidates are more passive than ever before, yet far more open to talking about job opportunities. Few candidates that we place into roles have applied for that specific job through an ad.

At Hudson, you will use our extensive database of specialised talent pools, networks and multiple sourcing channels to find, engage and nurture outstanding candidates, so you can make the best placements for your clients – and fast.

Be rewarded for your work

You’ll receive training and support to help you grow your desk, with clear and transparent criteria that empower you to progress your career and to earn more.


What does it take to succeed?

Don’t have any recruitment experience yet? Don’t worry. Recruitment consultants can come from all sorts of backgrounds. Sales is a particularly helpful background as you will need to be confident actively looking and finding new clients. Industry experience can give you a head start within your specialism.

The important things are that you have a good attitude, a drive to succeed, great interpersonal skills, resilience, and a willingness to learn. We train you on the job to become the best recruitment consultant you can be.
