What’s really important though is that you’re a nice person with strong ethics. Someone who genuinely cares about achieving the very best for our clients, and treats everyone with the utmost respect.
Camaraderie’s high at ninesharp. We have fun while we work, and when one of us scores we all celebrate. But if a job comes in as we’re leaving, we all stay back and pitch in. It’s one of the reasons people stay with us so long.
We’re very specific about how we do things because we know it gets results. You’ll always be clear on what’s expected of you, and you’ll get lots of training.
Here’s how your first few weeks could look.
You’ll meet your mentor, a Senior Consultant, and the rest of the team and get settled in.
You’ll shadow your mentor and get detailed training from our experts about every aspect of recruitment, and our job-driven approach in particular. You’ll also get a chance to get to know everyone better during after-work drinks.
You’ll begin working alongside your mentor. Whichever office you’re based at, you’ll also spend time at our head office in Maidenhead during this period.
If we feel you’re up to it, you’ll get your own specialist market to work in under your mentor’s supervision. Training hasn’t finished though – it’ll continue throughout your time at ninesharp.
Perform, and your career progression at ninesharp has no limits.
You could move from Trainee Consultant to Senior Consultant and on to Team Leader in less than four years. Because it’s not about time served, it’s about your ability to succeed and inspire others to do the same. If you really shine, you’ll get a Director role with shares. And an incredibly healthy bank balance.

Recommended by James Money, I started as a trainee consultant with ninesharp at the beginning of 2012 with about six months previous recruitment experience. I benefitted immensely from the training programme, learning from industry experts who invested their time in helping me learn about recruitment process and the important roles that IT, Finance, Marketing and HR play within business. I now work as a Senior Consultant in the interim HR market, looking after a small team and I enjoy contributing to the development of others. A career at ninesharp has allowed me to achieve personal development goals and real financial security. I have cleared all my debts, purchased property and rarely have to worry about finances. The best thing about working at ninesharp is the success-driven environment - everyone strives for excellence and genuinely wants you to achieve it too.
I’ve been at ninesharp for over four years now and in that time I’ve progressed from Consultant to Senior Consultant and the position I’m in now – Contract Team Lead. I feel I’ve grown professionally and on a personal level since joining the company. And the rewards, including lunches at Michelin-starred restaurants, all expenses paid trips and the ability to buy my first house, have been fantastic.
Working in recruitment can be a demanding and stressful at times, but the one thing that makes it easier is the environment at ninesharp. From day one the support that is given to you is second to none. Everyone wants you to be a success – directors, managers and colleagues – and that’s why I enjoy working here. You’re given a platform and all the tools needed to be successful.
Like many New Zealanders, I had the urge to travel and spent half a year in India and a month in Nepal before landing in the UK. What was meant to be a small stopover has turned into full-time settlement! I started my recruitment career at a specialist IT agency and was headhunted by ninesharp to set up our IT division. I’ve gone on to become ninesharp’s all-time leading biller for permanent placements.
Along the way I’ve not only opened up large accounts for the business and hit numerous incentive trips for myself, I’ve helped to mentor and manage others to achieve success. I take great pride in taking a raw Trainee and helping them become a Consultant who consistently delivers above target. The best thing for me about working at ninesharp is the people – we have a great team and always have a laugh.
