Let’s face it:
Finding a job in recruitment is tough! Especially in London!
There are thousands of companies and even more jobs to consider.
But what really make’s it confusing is how many businesses seem to all appear pretty much the same and work in exactly the same “salesy” way.
So with this in mind, how do you work out where is the best cultural fit and who will support you most in career development?
We truly believe we genuinely offer a different proposition.
Here are 10 points as to why we think working here is great. (P.S. If you share our values you’ll probably agree too!)
1. Our people come first
Every single day each one of us works to make Vertical Advantage a better business and a more enjoyable effort. That’s the personal responsibility of everyone in the business, not just mine or the leadership team, and we all appreciate this.
2. We’re good at the job
Our team is a combination of talent, experience, and sheer hard work. You’ll learn by osmosis, every single day, and in doing so, you help make the company what it is: a team of experts who love their work.
3. We’re led by quality
We don’t create harmful KPIs for CV sends or time on the phone. We know that quality takes time, thought, and sometimes negotiation, and we want you to find the best people and options for our treasured client base.
4. We’re grown up
Seriously, if you need to work from home because a fridge is being delivered from Argos any time between 8 am and 8 pm, that’s fine. Don’t worry about it. Just log on remotely, and crack on with your day. We trust our employees.
5. We help each other
With the wide range of skill sets, ambitions, and client requirements we see every day, the opportunities for cross-selling are vast. No desk is ever truly cold. Your colleagues are not over-protective about their clients and candidates and will want to see you succeed.
6. We have a strategy
Sounds sensible, doesn’t it? We know from experience that many recruitment businesses bounce from one idea to the next. At Vertical Advantage, we know where we are going, and we know how to get there.
7. We have meaningful values
You can find our values on our website. Have a read, but understand that these literally describe the reality of working at Vertical Advantage. They explain how we work with our audiences, both external and internal, and because we favour a straight-up approach, buzz words are banned here.
8. We offer a career, not a job
We’re hot on continuing professional development here, and you’ll find a variety of options to help you develop your career the way you want. Our experience helps us understand how you can get the best out of yourself in order to progress.
9. We’re passionate
It’s not about filling jobs (although sure, that’s a side result of our efforts), it’s about working in a sector we love and understand. The best way to capture this is to read some of the blogs we have published. Please check out our .
10. Our people come first
We didn’t want you to lose sight of the overriding purpose of the business. Our people make our business what it is, and we’d be nothing without them.

We DON’T want your CV.
And we don’t want a corporate sounding covering letter with lots of buzzwords you think we might want to hear.
We are sure you are ‘driven and personable’ and you are ‘both motivated to work as an individual or as part of a team’ but we’d like to know something different!
From there, we will be in touch to arrange a coffee, and we can get to know each other informally, without going through a strict interview process.
We look forward to hearing from you.
