Join Eleven

We are growing! We’re currently looking for experienced recruiters as well as trainee recruiters and resourcers to join our friendly, knowledgeable team based in the Cheshire town of Knutsford.

We understand that some recruitment firms have a bad reputation – aggressive sales targets, candidates treated like commodities and a dog-eat-dog atmosphere.

Eleven has never been like that. As a fourth-generation family business, we look at the long term picture and understand that our company’s health depends on ongoing relationships built on trust. It’s why we worked together to agree the commitments we make to both candidates and clients, and rather than letting them gather dust on a shelf, they now guide how we do business every single week.

Specialising in the commodities, (clean) energy and speciality chemicals sectors, we have an excellent reputation for recruiting candidates into some of the world’s leading energy companies and have a solid track record of hiring mid to senior level professionals including C-Suite.  

You’d be working as part of a team that live and breathe their specialist sector and are constantly seeking to develop their reputation as trusted experts. Overseen by a sector lead the team is made up of people responsible for business development, management of assignments and searching for perfect candidates, assisted by an expert support team.

We place a high value on great, considerate manners, people who don’t give up easily and enterprising types who find creative solutions to the challenges posed to us by our clients.

What’s in it for you?

  • Salary from £18,000 to £30,000 depending upon experience

  • Commission structures leading to OTE of £50,000 to £100,000

  • Open holiday policy

  • Flexible working opportunities

  • Many networking opportunities via our trade association and event partnerships such as Chemicals Industry Association, Chemicals NorthWest, UKLA, UKIFDA, Flame, ACI, Energy Risk Europe, eWorld and IP Week

Our head office is in the lovely Cheshire town of Knutsford, with Tatton Park and retail therapy right on the doorstep.

We have a policy in place to spend 1% of our time and 1% of our revenues on charitable/community initiatives - we’d love support you in helping your favourite cause or for you to join us on one of our all company volunteering days planting trees or digging ditches for voles!

Our office is regularly stocked up with cakes and biscuits and as well as opportunities to travel to client offices and industry events, there are team outings, quiz nights, legendary parties and more.

Follow our Facebook or LinkedIn pages to keep up to date with our team activities and charity involvement.
