Fancy joining us?

We are the antithesis of conventional recruitment companies. No sales targets, no business-speak, no hardball, no offices or office politics (!) and no stress to get placements, although obviously they do help us keep afloat.. Just hard work coupled with experience and knowledge and the creation of personal relationships with locums and clients alike.

We are particularly interested in someone to assist us with the central London market. If you are currently working in recruitment but fed up with the usual sales nonsense or the need to commute anywhere or work rigid/long hours, get in touch with our Managing Director, Jonathan Fagan, at jbfagan@ten-percent.co.uk, or message him via LinkedIn.
