We’re hiring recruiters – here are 5 reasons to join us!

If you already work in recruitment, you may be looking for progression, a change of direction or a fresh team and working environment. 

If you don't, you might be shifting careers from another industry or taking your first step on the career ladder after school or university.

Whatever your background, we’re currently hiring for multiple roles, at all levels – here are just a few reasons to consider applying to join our award-winning team.

1)    We have been awarded the prestigious ‘We Invest In People – Gold’ accolade by renowned workplace evaluation organisation ‘Investors In People’

Winning a Gold accreditation is no easy task! Our business was scrutinised, our staff anonymously surveyed and our culture evaluated. Keystream was found to be a business that lives its values, embraces new ideas and provides excellent opportunities for our teams by Investors in People

And this isn’t the first time we’ve been recognised. In 2019, we were judged a top 10 recruitment agency to work for by an expert judging panel at the Talint Awards.

2)    We are on a journey to build a more equal, diverse and inclusive workplace.

We’ve always been an ethical, values led business, and in 2021, we appointed a team of Equality, Diversity & Inclusion (EDI) Champions to lead, drive and implement a new EDI initiative. Ranging from internal awareness raising events to sharing EDI best practice and engaging with clients on how to increase their workforce diversity, the team are passionate EDI allies

Needless to say, we welcome applications from under-represented groups, with ‘protected characteristics’ and from all backgrounds!

3)    Exceptional career progression opportunities with a growing business.

Our strategy is to promote from within wherever possible. We provide the support, training and investment needed to help our teams achieve their career ambitions at Keystream. It’s one of the reasons why our recruiters stay for an average of 3 or more years in an industry with a high level of staff churn.

We’ve got lots of case studies which highlight our track record on internal progression, including:

  • Two Associate Directors who started as trainees.
  • A successful apprenticeship programme which has resulted in full time jobs, three progressing to Manager level
  • An average 70% of employees achieve promotion within their first year

4)    Excellent earnings opportunities from the outset.

A benefit of working in close partnership with loyal clients is the high proportion of early access and exclusive business we have with existing clients. 
‘Warm desks’, an extensive, proven talent network and a dedicated Business Development function mean our newest recruitment consultants can very quickly build up their particular niche business, and watch their earnings grow. 

Working across five divisions, we have plenty of options for employees who want to change sector, focus on permanent or executive hiring or try out new markets and ideas.

5)    Last, but not least, our flexible, supportive ‘family feel’ culture.

In every Keystream employee survey, culture is the top reason for people joining and staying. From our CSR programme to our EDI initiative, company values and social events, our employees tell us they enjoy life at Keystream.
Our teams support each other, socialise together, help each other. People are able to take ownership, encouraged to try new things and supported through tough times. We respect our colleagues, clients and candidates, we can be authentic.

We’re incredibly proud of the culture we’ve built at Keystream, everyone has an impact on it and brings something different.
