DM Fundraising Recruiter | Minimum £35,000 basic salary, negotiable depending on experience, + outstanding commission | Bermondsey head office, with extensive flexibility and work from home options
A bit about us:
QuarterFive was launched in 2013 to provide exceptional, proactive recruitment consultancy to fundraisers and not-for-profit organisations. Six years on, we’ve built a successful, close-knit team of ten and a solid reputation for a high quality service. Our business overwhelmingly comes from recommendations and networking, with a significant and consistent number of exclusive jobs.
We’ve recruited fundraisers from Assistant to Director level for clients including Action Against Hunger, Alzheimer’s Society, Bloodwise, Breast Cancer Now, Centrepoint, Concern Worldwide, Crisis, International Crisis Group, Mind, Plan UK, Shelter, Stonewall, Teach First, Terrence Higgins Trust, The Prince’s Trust and War Child.
Our uniquely flexible and positive culture has been key to our success. We’ve strived to make this a great place to work, with collaboration, supportive leadership and highly motivating commission and benefits at the centre of our practice. Pointless KPIs, fixed hours, cold calls and tight-fisted bonuses aren’t our thing.
We created a new, dedicated DM desk in April 2019, and in only four months this has become one of our busiest markets and average fees in this area are high.. So, we’re looking for a new recruiter to join the DM recruitment team, working roles up to director-level.
You’ll be joining a key growth area for Q5 and working a 65/35 mix of contingent / exclusive jobs, alongside playing a key role in the proactive maintenance of existing clients and using our shared successes to leverage new business.
You’ll be given full responsibility for taking briefs, planning and executing searches and building high quality, consultative relationships with candidates and clients. Personalised training and ongoing support will be provided by the highly experienced directors.
A bit about you:
Successful recruiters tend to be tenacious relationship builders with an eye for detail and a knack for spotting opportunities, so we care less about your professional background and more about your approach. That said, we’d be very interested in DM fundraisers looking to move into recruitment, experienced recruiters, or someone looking for a career change who will add to the qualities and potential of our team.
Essential skills & experience
Highly articulate, showing attention to detail in both verbal and written forms
Skilled relationship builder, able to establish rapport with a wide range of people
Excellent listening and questioning skills
Highly organised and have a track record of successfully working to deadlines and prioritising tasks
Our business overwhelmingly comes from recommendations and networking
Less PSL work, more exclusive and retained jobs with quality briefs
We actively build on individuals’ strengths rather than using KPIs to drive generic activities
Supportive, collaborative culture – we collectively evolve best practice and learn together
Our consultants actively contribute to the direction of the business
We're growing fast, and this is a chance to join us at a time when our consultants play a key role in shaping the business
We'll invest in expansion as soon as there is a clear case for doing so - we'd like to think we're an attractive prospect for highly ambitious people interested in growing with us
In year one, you will earn between 30% and 40% of what you bill, depending on performance
Unrivalled flexibility – we all enjoy being in the office, but our culture is supportive of regular home working and we do not clock watch – you will be trusted to manage your time
25 days annual leave, plus Christmas Eve to New Year’s Day inclusive
Q5 is registered with CycleScheme, allowing employees to purchase a bike in a tax-efficient way through a salary sacrifice scheme.
Excellent basic salary
