We are growing! As a result of our continued success, Cathedral Appointments are expanding the team, and we have an opportunity for a rising star to join us at an entry level and learn our industry. Starting as a resourcer and administrator, we will support, coach, train and develop you through all aspects of the service we provide to our candidates and clients. You will be able to gain experience as you learn, gradually progressing into a more consultative role during your first year.

Cultural fit is everything – we are not your average recruitment agency. We are service led, and focus on quality over quantity in all we do.

You will be responsible for managing your own workload, providing busy and varied administrative support to a small team of consultants. As your knowledge and confidence increases, you will begin resourcing candidates, developing your own candidate base and ultimately managing your own vacancies and clients.
