We’re Hiring: Search Consultant

Are you a talented Search Consultant who wants to join a highly ambitious and entrepreneurial Search Consultancy? Would you relish the opportunity to join a highly experienced team that takes pride in providing a holistic approach to senior hiring and search?

KING is a leading South West based consultancy looking for a talented Search Consultant to join our team! As a search recruitment agency based in the UK, we are open-minded and flexible, we’re looking for someone to specialise in an industry or sector – depending on your toolkit and aspirations!

KING specialises in Executive Search across the South West with aspirations to build out industries/sectors across the UK and internationally. We work as a close-knit, collaborative team to support SME’s, and high-growth scale-up businesses to find the right leaders for their organisations.

We deliver managerial, senior leadership, and board hires, whether it be for succession planning, M&A activity, growth, turnaround, diversification, or wholesale change.

As a Search Consultant, you will be responsible for driving your own specialism whether that’s growing out a team, or simply being a consistently high-achiever! You’ll be someone that nurtures long-term relationships with clients, candidates, and partners, building a pipeline of business, and delivering excellence and innovation in senior appointments. There is flexibility for you to define your core focus which could be based on professional discipline, geography, or sector. We are seeking someone that can balance team collaboration, with a strong drive to achieve exceptional results. 

Ideally, you will be based in a good catchment area for our head office in Exeter, but we are open-minded to where you may be based as we offer hybrid working, but also would consider someone UK based. We’re looking for someone with entrepreneurial flair, a proactive self-starter, with excellent communication skills and the ability to build strong relationships with clients and candidates alike.

About KING

WE. ARE. KING. KING has evolved from an organically grown business to a fast-paced ‘scale-up’ recruitment and search firm, that is set to dominate the Southwest region with further plans for UK & International expansion.

Since its inception, King has gone from strength the strength. King Recruit received Private Equity backing from James Caan CBE’s award-winning investment firm; Recruitment Entrepreneur in 2021.

We’re based out of Winslade Park, Exeter – and the team are seriously enjoying all of the benefits of working here, including great restaurants, gym, break out areas, free parking, a lively business community on site and a swimming pool coming soon.

At King we do things differently. We have created a dynamic, supportive environment where people work flexibly, in a hybrid model and a culture of teamwork is fostered.

We measure our success through repeat business and referrals developed from our established long-term relationships as trusted advisors.

We offer competitive remuneration packages including a comprehensive benefits programme.

We would consider part-time or compressed hours for the right applicants.

Be Bold. Take Control. Realise Your Full Potential. If you believe you can contribute to KING’s growth and our approach complements your values, we would love to hear from you. Please get in touch with Helen Plumridge our MD for an exploratory discussion. helen@kingrecruit.com | 07808 537696
