How a career in recruitment can give you a better work life balance

How a career in recruitment can give you a better work life balance

09 Sep 16:00 by James Thornhill


When you are looking for a job that gives you flexibility and excellent work life balance, recruitment might not be the career that first springs to mind. The industry has something of a reputation for demanding targets and long hours tied to the phone or desk - but that doesn’t have to be the case. At Thornhvac we have turned the world of recruitment on its head and are attracting talented recruiters as a result, particularly those who yearn for a better balance in life.

Our culture is rooted in a belief that a thriving modern business depends on a team that feels inspired, energised and self-motivated. That motivation should, we believe, come from a desire to do a great job for both client and candidate rather than a pressure to meet rigorous KPIs.

We also believe that job satisfaction comes from being part of a vibrant and supportive team. That’s why we work towards company targets rather than individual targets so that we have the needs of our clients and candidates first and foremost at all times. We hold regular team meetings where everyone’s input is valued, creating a real sense of co-operation within the business.

Flexible working isn’t just a box we tick – we understand how important it is to be able to have a good balance between work and home life. All our systems and processes are designed to support flexible working and we know this will mean different things to different people. We have a realistic and open-minded approach to working hours and home working and we welcome applications from experienced recruiters who are looking for a job that offers them genuine flexibility. 

We are currently recruiting for an experienced recruitment consultant with a background in engineering or technology to help us grow our team and expand our business.
