The Management Recruitment Group is a boutique search consultancy which has a specialist University People brand solely focusing on professional services appointments across higher education. Our success is built on the expertise and contacts of our Directors, Managers and Senior Consultants. They possess in-depth market knowledge and benefit from established senior contacts across their industries.

Our University People practice covers the full range of non-academic Director and senior leadership appointments across all aspects of professional services including Admissions, Academic Registry, Student Services, Marketing and IT. We have a nationwide remit and have partnered with many of the UK’s leading Russell Group institutions including the University of Oxford, Imperial College London and UCL in addition to many modern universities such as University for the Creative Arts. Working with our sector lead Sian Gardiner, we are seeking to appoint a Recruitment Consultant to undertake both search, permanent and interim appointments.

Across the wider business we have a team of 30+ recruiters based in our Bishopsgate office with an experienced team, where our team leaders have an average of over 12 years recruitment expertise. This has created a mature and professional environment where there is a great deal of know-how on hand. Everyone really contributes to the success, future, and direction of the business, with a team who work together and support each other. Our consultants work collaboratively on joint ventures to achieve campaign success.

Our people philosophy is very simple; our expectations are high and our ambitions challenging. We aim to train and develop all our Consultants to a position where they can achieve £200k+ in fees per year. Consultants work hard, but earn and live very well. This is the standard already being achieved by our top producers and our aim for everyone who joins.

We offer extremely competitive commission schemes in addition to realistic career progress and salary enhancement through promotions linked to annual fees. We have created a flexible workplace (we offer a hybrid model of 3/2 days home working) with a like-minded and inspirational team that produces fantastic market leading results and genuine rewards for all staff. We are passionate about work/life balance and have three in-house mental health first aiders and a corporate social responsibility team. We plan to grow significantly in a short space of time, and this will provide unparalleled management opportunities for a passionate Recruitment Consultant looking to build their career.

*We are always looking to grow the MRG team, so if a role in our Higher Education team isn’t for you, please still get in touch and we might be able to find a better fit for you on one of our other desks.*
