A team you will want to work with

Times are strange right now for everyone but we and our clients are seeing better times ahead.  We all long for the ‘new normal’ but we aren’t going to wait around for it to land.  We are cracking on to ensure we meet our goals and objectives for 2021 and beyond.

We have already re-adjusted, we are totally effective from home and the office.  Of course, we are still longing for the day when we can all work together in our main office together.  Hopefully not too far away!

Morale is hugely important at Abacus, we know how and why we need to support each other during these difficult times. Video calls, WhatsApp messages, and face-to-face (socially distanced and when permitted) all helps to keep us connected.  Appreciation, kindness and a bit of banter goes a long way!

If you are interested in joining our team, we think you should meet the team.  Coffee chats with future colleagues, of all levels, are a part of our process.  Ask straight questions and get straight answers.

We’d love to hear from you if you…

  • Consider yourself honest, reliable and passionate about a long term career in the recruitment industry
  • Have gained at least 12 months or more work experience in a commercial environment
  • Possess a 3rd level qualification and wish to keep learning and developing
  • Thrive in a competitive but collaborative environment
  • Have confidence in your communication skills and ability to influence

If interested please complete the details below and we will reach out to arrange an initial discussion.
