Careers in Recruitment

Become a Recruitment Consultant

Our continued success is due to our relentless focus on how we understand and treat people; this is at the heart of everything we do.

Why work for us?

Recruitment is often seen as a fast-paced, commission motivated industry, with high levels of staff turnover and bad customer service. As a result of operating in a number focused environment, it is not uncommon for employees to feel undervalued and for candidates to feel underwhelmed – we at The ONE Group aim to break this mould.

We passionately believe that people make the difference and having the right people, in the right place, loving what they do is the real secret behind every successful business, genuine job satisfaction and real engagement.  

The ONE Group consistently works to build employee value, strengthen skillsets and establish long-lasting bonds between our teams. Whether it is formal qualifications, monthly newsletters, a quiz or even a trip to abroad – we believe that we can offer you a truly dynamic environment with great opportunities in which to build your career.

As a result, The ONE Group have recently been recognised for our levels of workplace engagement in the Best Companies for 2019 scheme. We hope that this signifies our commitment to providing a happy, cohesive and thus productive working environment.


We understand that defined progression paths are key to your journey and that development is high on the agenda of every professional looking to join the recruitment industry. To help you understand your path with us, we offer complete clarity on the steps you can take within The ONE Group. Whether you are just starting out or you are a seasoned recruitment professional, there is always space and a clear path for you to grow within our business.

Formed in early 2004 by three Recruitment Managers, who believed a different approach was required and at the time, one which was simply not available. The approach was simply to put our customers first in an ethos we call ‘recruitment as it should be’. As the backbone to the organisation, to this day our management team build upon this approach every day, creating great culture and great results for our clients and candidates.

Your work environment workenvironment.png

We currently operate across three office locations; Cambridge, Peterborough and Northampton.  Our offices are set out in a communication friendly open-plan layout. We believe this creates great cross-team relationships, combined with a sprinkling of sociable culture and the odd pool tournament.

We recognise the importance of giving back to a multitude of charities big and small - you will be given the opportunity to regularly work to support worthwhile causes through bake sales and dress down days to name a few of our exciting fundraising activities.  Our chosen charity partner MAGPAS, is at the heart of all we do – with our annual golf day being a key fundraising event in the calendar.
