Since we started in 2003, we have built an award-winning team with an amazing reputation. We wish to grow our team even more and hire people with strong values, drive and potential.

We hope this offers a healthy insight about our team, rewards, culture and career paths within Abacus.

A Summary Of What We Offer:

Join a team that offers a rewarding recruitment career & enjoy it along the way; via social events, regular team trips and support for charitable and good causes.

Earn significant uncapped bonuses on top of a competitive salary, progressive commission levels and access to profit share. Plus monthly gifts and prizes and other perks.

Work with autonomy and access support and coaching in an open and collaborative team environment.

Access our training academy and benefit from significant investment in your personal and professional development, qualifications and skills.


Culture is critical to Abacus.

This means we want our team to interact daily, achieve success together and be inspired in a collaborative environment. We all own our culture. We are equal partners.

Our day job means we offer strategic talent solutions, overcome recruitment challenges and help customers to grow their team. But in our team, we make sure we are there for each other, have a relaxed working space, try at all times to smile, laugh and have a lot of fun both inside and outside the office.

Our Culture

We get involved in various activities such as:

Walk and Talk – make sure everyone is happy and positive in work and life and coached on day to day activities.

Trips away – in 2022 alone, we visited Lusty Beg for an overnight trip filled with water and land-based activities. Then Carlingford (pure food and drink!) and next is a weekend in Brussels for our Xmas dinner.

Spot prizes – it feels like we are celebrating on a weekly basis, a new team member, best individual performance, new client contract, team performance, exceptional outcomes etc.

Maxing out the company credit cards is our monthly goal!

Work Life Balance

Health & Wellbeing


Investment in you is a constant. Learning never stops in Abacus.

Our core focus each day is to help individual job seekers access permanent and interim roles across multiple professional sectors. This includes executive/leadership roles above £200,000 right through to graduates starting careers at £20,000.

We need to be equipped to deliver an exceptional service and be agile to an ever-changing world of recruitment. Everyone in the team completes a training needs analysis (TNA) during induction and onboarding. This is tailored to reflect your level of experience and background. You will access an extensive training programme (lasting months) to help you manage all key recruitment aspects – managing jobs, companies, candidates and sales targets. We always commit to external speakers and experts to educate the team and attend events, programmes, courses and qualifications to improve your academic and technical capability.

Skills and Behaviours

We want to balance skills and cultural fit and we want to be the right place for you too!

The main skills and attributes in Abacus include a competitive drive and self-motivation to be successful & strong organisational skills, ability to multi-task and set priorities.

Highly effective time mgt, set goals and targets but be agile to react to opportunity and a positive team player.

Excellent written and verbal communication skills with an ability and confidence to present or pitch to high-level companies, build and maintain relations via meetings, social events, lunches and dinners.

We can support you with everything beyond skills, personality and cultural fit are very important.
