  • BECOME A
    HEADHUNTER

    To be a successful headhunter, you must be enterprising and well connected on your course or on campus generally. Links to societies, sports teams, large peer groups and departments are particularly helpful. You should also like networking, approaching people and talking to them about our clients’ schemes. Being active on social media will also help you reach the maximum audience.

  • WHAT WOULD
    I DO?

    As a headhunter, you would approach your friends, course-mates and anyone else you know, that would suit the campaign you’ve been briefed on. Think of it as networking that gets your friends hired at the same time. You will only ever work on one campaign at a time.

  • WHAT WOULD
    I EARN?

    Our top headhunters are paid a basic salary, as well as large commissions. All of our other headhunters work on a commission basis and are rewarded for every qualifying CV per campaign, as well as large cash sums per hire.

  • HOW DOES
    IT WORK?

    1. Briefing
    Our campus team brief you on the people we are looking for, for each campaign.

    2. Campus Search
    You spread the word on campus by approaching anyone in your networks that you think suits the role and the company. These can be friends, course-mates, sports teammates, society colleagues or anyone else you think is suitable.

    3. Application
    The people you have recommended the role to then apply using your unique referral code.

Having worked with them on a few applications I was always struck by their personable, relatable and honest approach and the incredible level of service and support provided to candidates.

Even now I’ve got the job, the team is still in touch to check everything is OK and offer advice, which shows just how wonderful their services are! I’d absolutely recommend them without hesitation. Thanks, Sanctuary!
