​About the Job

​As Principal Recruitment Consultant, you will be a fundamental addition to the Stafffinders team so we’re looking for someone with the determination to elevate their career to the next level.

Whether your background is in Commercial, Industrial, IT or another recruitment sector, you could be just what we are looking for. We are very much open-minded.
