Job Description

Are you a seasoned recruiter looking for a 6-12 month contract?  Perhaps you are in-between roles and deciding whether to stay in agency recruitment or work in-house? TPP has the perfect opportunity for an experienced Recruitment Consultant who may be looking for flexibility or a bit more work life balance. The role is to join our highly successful and established Office and Specialist Support team and cover a Business Managers permanent desk during a period of maternity leave.

You will cover, maintain and service the requirements of existing clients and candidates and manage this desk with the highest level of customer care. The role will form part of a 7 person team and you will work alongside 3 other Permanent consultants. The Specialist Support division has the pleasure of working in partnership with many varied and interesting clients within the not for profit arena. As the leading specialist consultancy we enjoy servicing the Third and Public sector and placing candidates in their dream jobs.

The Company

TPP are one of the UK’s leading not for profit recruiters and work with a wide range of clients and organisations ranging from international NGOs to independent health charities. 

At TPP, we genuinely believe in creating an environment where people enjoy coming into work and we encourage team working, openness and honesty. All staff are treated as individuals, given autonomy and encouraged, praised and trusted to make their own decisions. There is no such thing as a bad idea and career development is nurtured and supported.

Our principled and ethical work culture reflects the sector in which we specialise, and many of our employees join us because they want to help support the charity world.


The Role

The Office and Specialist Support team is the longest established of our eight divisions and has an excellent reputation. Within this team is one of our most successful Business Managers who has been working with us for over 9 years and bills £200K+. She will soon be due to go on maternity leave, therefore we are looking for a consultant who will have the ability to step into her shoes and do a fantastic job of covering for a period of 6-12 months. You’ll be recruiting across a wide range of support functions vital to the running of any not for profit organisation. The roles are interesting and varied with a large focus on data and database management roles as well as anything from entry level support to PA, research and advocacy, project coordination through to governance and senior level fundraising support roles.

You’ll never be bored working in this successful team, as the sheer range and diversity of the roles and clients makes the position varied and interesting.

In return we are looking for someone who is motivated, hardworking and passionate about what they do with the ability to successfully match candidates to jobs.
