Job Description

Here for a slice of the action? We get it. You’ve heard about the lucrative earning potential, you’re aware of the prestigious clients we enjoy working with, and you’re hungry to succeed in a trillion-dollar industry.

You may already be familiar with the world of recruitment, possibly even an expert in the field or you might simply have a real interest in the Property and Construction sector, but you know what makes people tick.

This is an opportunity to immediately gain access to an enviable portfolio of client accounts such as Argent, Deloitte and the University of Cambridge. Only a few of the prestigious names entrusted by the Holtby Turner Group, with board-level relationships spanning over the past 20 years.

With 90% of our work retained, you would also gain the training to effectively offer and deliver recruitment solutions on a retained basis, ensuring that every hour you invest into an assignment is recognised, with an up-front financial commitment from your client.

Your hard work would be rewarded and recognised with arguably one of the most generous commission schemes in the market. On top of this you would be awarded an annual bonus for surpassing your targets and further rewarded, for value added in other areas of our business. Talking of targets, we love to celebrate hitting them whether that be with a team trip to a Michelin star restaurant or the South of France, you suggest something fun and together, we will make it happen.

If you got this far, you must be a people person and there is no greater way to meet new friends and grow your professional network than in our shared luxury office space, which you would be free to use at your convenience on a flexible basis.

Your voice will immediately be heard amongst our agile, close-knit, collaborative team so you will have a real opportunity to define the shape of our business and play an integral part in the bigger picture; the ambition to become the first name in recruitment in the property and construction sector for the mid-tier candidate market.

Once you are done for the day, take a step out of the office into central Marylebone or two steps into neighbouring Selfridges, should you wish. If fitness comes first, head to a gym on us with a monthly £50 contribution to a gym membership of your choice.

We look after our team, which is why we finish early on a Wednesday, we encourage home working and from day one, we build a development plan just for you.

York Street Recruitment is a division of the Holtby Turner Group, a friendly team of five professionals with a variety of experience with an aligned purpose. Whether you are a member of our team, a client or candidate, our priority is to support you in achieving your aspirations and to maximise your true potential.

If you are interested in joining us or would simply like to learn more, apply now or contact us today.

Senior Project Manager
£70,000 - £80,000

If you're working in Project Management in Construction & Property with a consultancy, you'll know what's involved - both the challenges and the rewards.

We are looking to add a 6th person to a team of 5 other project managers in RLFs London office over the next 3 years, develop them into some one capable of taking up a senior role within the PM team.

The business employ around 170 people - so a good size firm but not so large that you'll get lost in the background with most people working remotely 3 days of the week. You would have a major role to play in pushing the PM side to be their primary service offering - a new strategy to put them in line with the wider business, following a recent acquisition by an American firm, MGAC.

You'll know what a project manager does, but this role in particular will be focusing on the "front-end" of development - with a large focus on residential projects, namely the luxury, later-living market. That's not to say you won't ever be involved in the later RIBA stages or working on other sectors, but you'll need at least "some" exposure of RIBA stages 0 - 4.

If you're thinking what qualifications or accreditation you need, you'll need to be chartered through either the RICS, APM or CIOB.

With the company being fairly small but global, there will be plenty of opportunities to progress your career and get involved in projects both at home and overseas. A good package is also on offer with bonus you have every chance of achieving.

If this appeal to you, please get in touch with me at ashley@yorkstreet.co (just .co) for more info, or apply within.
