Careers at BLT

If you think we’re a typical recruitment company, think again. Whilst operating to the highest professional standards, we like to think of ourselves as a little different to your archetypal recruiter.

Our business is expanding and we are interested in talking to experienced Recruitment Consultants, particularly with expertise in one of our core areas – Tax, Management Consultancy and Interim Managment.

As a new joiner, you will get involved in all types of assignments and have the opportunity to recruit at all levels. You can capitalise on BLT’s excellent brand and reputation as you make your name and our supportive culture provides both the mentorship and autonomy for you to develop and run with your own portfolio of clients. You will reap the rewards of this via an open ended bonus structure.

Our key criteria include:

  • Educated to degree standard.
  • A track record of success in recruitment.
  • A focus on quality client service.
  • A commercial mindset.

It is our unique approach to recruitment which has made us the provider of choice for clients and candidates alike. Whatever your background, you will be joining a team packed with experience.

Comments from current BLT consultants:

Why is BLT a great place to work? I joined BLT in 2004 after an earlier career in accountancy and recruitment at Ernst and Young, the ICAEW and two major recruitment consultancies; Robert Half and ECHM. My specialist areas of focus are Financial Management across all sectors and the Financial Services sector. At BLT we’re a mix of individuals (no clones here!) – all very different but a great bunch of colleagues with clear common aims and values. Unlike many of our competitors BLT recognises that you don’t need to be working fourteen hours a day to be successful! Flexibility, freedom and trust - not often found in recruitment firms - that’s what makes BLT different.

Catriona Cookson, MC Team

One of the best things about BLT is that people work genuinely together, as part of a distinctive collegiate team environment. Whilst the Directors are always on hand to pass on advice, support and help, consultants are encouraged to develop their own style, personal approach and contacts. Recruitment is a people business after all, and it will be your personality that wins the clients and candidates, and rewards you accordingly.’

Guy Barrand, Indirect Tax Team
