Account Manager - IT Recruitment - Niche Tech Consultancy!

Prism Digital is a niche IT Recruitment Consultancy specialising in the DevOps and Cloud industry. We pride ourselves on being experts in our market and offering a consultative approach to our clients, whilst taking a genuine interest in the industries we help hire into. As a team of about half-a-dozen employees, we are a close-knit bunch with a start-up mentality. Over the next 18 months, we are looking to double our headcount and cement ourselves as *the* leading DevOps talent partner. It's set to be an exciting and very rewarding journey!

As an Account Manager, you will have the opportunity to work on dedicated accounts, with no cold calling and guaranteed positions to work on. This is a mid-senior position so we will expect you to have previous experience either working for an IT recruitment consultancy or for a direct employer as an internal recruiter or account manager. You will be the sole dedicated Account Manager to begin with, so there will be opportunities for you to grow and head up your own 180 team in the future.

We are looking for someone who is comfortable managing multiple business relationships with existing clients at once - handling the recruitment of their open positions from start to finish. It will be important for you to have a keen eye for what makes a suitable candidate and be able to make sure that any candidates in process are given the proper attention required to ensure an optimal recruitment process. Your day-to-day job will involve developing the relationships we have with existing clients and networking with candidates to generate a solid talent pool that you can then deliver into your accounts.

Whilst we are a DevOps and Cloud focused consultancy, some of our long-standing clients do have other requirements beyond our usual niche which we are happy to cater to as part of our land and expand model. A key function of your role as a dedicated Account Manager will be to assist in fulfilling these slightly different positions that our existing clients come to us with.

  • We are niche specialists. Our focus market is DevOps Engineering - one of the most in demand tech jobs in the world
  • Very generous and transparent commission structure
  • We invest a lot of time and money into marketing our brand so that our consultants' jobs are made easier
  • We are always open to new ideas - no suggestion is too whacky, if you think it's a cool idea, we want to hear it!

Your role will involve:

  • Delivering on a multitude of roles ranging from IT Development, Software, QAs, and Pre-Sales
  • Managing SLAs - be comfortable and understand the importance of our set service level agreements and enforce the SLAs for your future team
  • Canvassing candidates and engaging with applicants face-to-face at Prism's office and at our client's office to fulfil the first stage interview process
  • Face to face meetings to build relationships, take role briefings and become embedded with our clients' processes
  • Client hospitality, be willing to socialise and enjoy the partnership with our clients
  • Reporting, creating and running through monthly delivery reports for our retained clients

We are looking for people who have the following:

  • 12 months + IT / Technology Recruitment experience
  • Experience in mentoring or leading other recruiters
  • An exceptional phone manner - you will be the 'voice and face' to many of Prism's clients
  • Strong written English
  • A persuasive and likeable personality
  • Great work ethic, a passion for success and relentless energy
  • An appetite for learning and personal development
  • A keen interest in IT and technology
  • An analytical mind and an eagerness for following processes that result in demonstrated success
  • Ability to work closely as a team and collaborate with your peers
  • Resilience and the wherewithal to handle rejection

In return, the following benefits will be on offer:

  • Circa £25k base salary, depending on experience
  • Base salary promotion targets clearly defined on a 6-monthly basis
  • Defined career path, with promotions attached to sales targets
