West Midlands / Staffordshire / Shropshire region (Flexible working)

An exciting opportunity to join the No.1 end-to-end finance recruitment team in the region.

Our Business

Seymour John is a specialist recruitment and consultancy services group fronted by passionate people who stand out because we are honest, ethical, and genuinely care about the lives and businesses we touch. We work hard to achieve a positive impact in the world, adhere to high standards and set the benchmark for service quality.

Our business is continuously evolving, and you will benefit from an exciting and engaging work culture that actively supports flexibility and the healthy integration of work and family lives. Whilst we are serious about what we do, ours is a relaxed environment where people are encouraged to be themselves and add their unique strengths into the mix. We currently employ around 35 people.

Our West Midlands team have been operating at capacity for most of 2021 and we know we are in the right place to welcome at least one more person to the business, confident we can support your commercial success.

The Opportunity

Seymour John offer industry leading reward packages, which include a generous basic salary with uncapped commission. For example, an experienced Principal Consultant delivering ??150,000 annually in fees/temporary margin will be able to earn over ??60,000. We also offer 30 days' holiday, in addition to your eight statutory days, plus your birthday if it falls on a working day.

We offer flexible working between home and the office; we are open to part time or full time working (a full-time contract being 40 hours per week).

You will have unrivalled support from our team of exceptional people who genuinely care and want you to excel and become the best you can be.

We have invested in market leading advanced search technology platforms that allow you to find and deliver the right people solutions faster and we intend to stay at the forefront of what is possible as technology evolves. We believe that if we want to be the best from our customer's perspective, then we need to equip ourselves with the best tools available to help them.

We do not manage you by KPIs; we treat you as the trusted grown-up professional that you are. In return, we expect you to be highly self-motivated and invested in your continuous professional development.

If you demonstrate consistent, stellar performance and behave as a leader in everything you do, you can evolve your influence within our business and progress to Associate Director.

What we expect from you

We need someone who can deliver permanent and temporary recruitment from Clerical to Manager level across purchase and sales ledger, credit control and payroll, and Accounts Assistants/Assistant Accountant. We are relatively open minded on the level of experience you bring to the party, although it's essential that you have the character to maintain our high standards in integrity, passion, and care. You will be:

  • Fundamentally honest to the core
  • Able to earn the respect and trust of others by delivering what you say
  • Able to offer empathy and understanding, blended with pragmatic advice that adds value in every conversation you have
  • Inspired and passionate about doing the right thing for people to enhance their lives or their business - understanding that your commercial reward is a by-product of doing the right thing, not the primary goal
  • Tenacious and determined to succeed
  • Commercially astute and self-respecting - able to communicate the value of the service you provide
  • Able to demonstrate a sharp intellect and ability to understand and solve different challenges every day
  • Hungry to develop and be better tomorrow than you were yesterday

If your values and standards align to ours, and particularly if you have already developed a loyal client following, we would love to hear from you.
