Junior Talent Consultant ⚡️

London £25K regardless of experience Permanent

We are great believers in hiring people that have all the right skills, even if they haven't done the exact job before. We want to provide opportunities to people who hiring managers 'couldn't picture doing the job'.So if you're looking to progress your career in luxury travel, lifestyle and hospitality and want to make a change to the industry when it comes to ED&I then we may just be the company for you.

About Us

After launching Lightning at the tail end of 2019 (pre pandemic) thanks to everyone’s incredible support the business has gone from strength to strength and we are now a well known and exclusive brand within the luxury travel, lifestyle and hospitality recruitment spaces, priding ourselves on being the change we want to see.

We're also proud activists that are constantly fighting for the travel industry to be better. You might have seen our '85% of CEO's are white men' candle featured in the Metro, Unilad or Independant? Or did you catch our Non-Binary finery CEO Chris featured in the Daily Mail? We're always fighting to make the industry a better place and using our platform to speak up for marginalised communities.

Activism aside, we're also pretty epic when it comes to recruitment. We've got over 100 five star Google Reviews and it brings us all the joy to say that we truly value and get to know PEOPLE. It's what makes our service so awesome, and why we're looking for someone as passionate about both the industry and the people within it to join us.

The Role: Junior Talent Consultant

We're looking for someone who is super passionate about people. We're looking for someone who loves the luxury travel, lifestyle and hospitality industries. We're looking for someone who wants to grow. 

In short, you'll be assisting with recruitment processes and making sure things run smoothly for the talent team. Working alongside Ciarán and Jack you'll be mentored by them and shown the ropes of what it means to be a talent consultant. You'll learn everything from the importance of a clean database, to how to schedule interviews, vet candidates and manage clients.

Our focus is not on hard sales, but instead is on the human element of recruitment. As a business we are not about making the most money, but about making the biggest difference and providing the best service. We need someone who is able to multi-task, is deadline driven and is a natural relationship builder.

NO EGOS NEED APPLY - everyone here started off their careers doing admin and it won't work if you come into this role thinking you're better than this (or us).
