Birchwood Knight is a specialist executive search firm focused on corporate affairs. We help a broad range of organisations to recruit the leaders and teams who promote and protect their corporate reputations with the media, politicians, regulators, investors and local communities, as well as engage their own staff. It’s a fascinating sector.
We’re a small team currently making about 50 placements a year, mostly in the £75,000 to £150,000 salary range. The vast majority of our clients come to us via referral and all commit to working with us exclusively. We also have a strong balance sheet, which enables us to take decisions for the medium to long-term.
2019 marks our 10th year in business and we are actively looking to grow our team with smart, energetic people who can help us continue to develop what we do and how we do it. People who can drive even more business referrals and grow profits, help shape our culture and take us into new markets, and ultimately make the next ten years even more successful than the last. In particular, we’re recruiting for an:
- Associate Director/Senior Consultant with the ability to lead client work, and a
- Consultant/Research Consultant to play a key role in delivering senior searches
Experience in executive search, recruitment and/or corporate affairs would be helpful, a willingness to learn and enthusiasm for the job are essential. You’ll need to be inquisitive with the ability to ask searching questions and really listen to the answers. This is how we make sure we are really clear on what our clients and candidates are looking for. You’ll also need to be a confident communicator, a quick study and a good problem solver.
In addition to interesting work we offer a supportive, flexible working environment and competitive package.
