We're Hiring!

Together Stronger

We’re proud to be an equal opportunities employer and have built a supportive environment that encourages and values diversity and builds on the differences individuals bring to the team. 

Gender equality in the workplace is something we’re very passionate about and we believe that individuals can fulfil their potential at Understanding Recruitment regardless of their gender. That’s why we’ve pledged our support to APSCo's Women in Recruitment initiative. But we don’t stop there. Our consultants also receive training around Unconscious Bias and Equality Law and we are proud to be signed up to the Disability Confident Scheme.

We know recruitment can be stressful at times. That's why we're big on supporting your mental health and wellbeing and have implemented several initiatives including our Wellbeing Committee and dedicated Mental Health First Aiders. We've also signed the Mental Health in Recruitment Awareness To Action Pledge and are committed to how mental health is viewed and supported in our workplace.

We're looking for IT recruitment talent to join the Understanding Recruitment team.

We're on an ambitious journey and by 2024 we want to be 100+ consultants strong, operating in at least another country with two additional offices.

Be Part of the U's Team

Recruitment is pretty similar everywhere you go. It's the team environment that can really make a difference in how you feel about coming to work. We're really proud of the team-orientated culture we've created and put a lot of emphasis on supporting each other and winning together!

Our culture is based on our five values: 

  1. Reputation is everything
  2. Never, ever give up
  3. Exceed expectations, always
  4. Together stronger
  5. Be the very best you

We want each of our team member to reach their potential and encourage everyone to drive their own development. Our in-house Learning & Development team will work closely with you to make sure you get the mentoring, coaching, internal, and external training you need to progress your career with us.

We believe in rewarding hard work, and that's why we offer special meals and trips for those who have really gone the extra mile with their targets, such as our 'Road to Olympia' trip to visit our Acceler8 Talent recruitment team in Boston, Massachusetts, for trainees and graduates.

Giving Back Matters

We’re passionate about giving back and encourage our team to get stuck in. Everyone at UR gets 2 paid days a year off to participate in charity work and fundraising. Together we’ve raised thousands of pounds for our nominated charities over the years!

We’ve taken part in the Herts 10k, Nuclear Races, baked dozens of cakes for our annual Bake Off, and our directors even ran, kayaked and cycled across 105 miles of the Scottish Highlands as part of the Coast to Coast.
