Your new job in recruitment

At Clarkson Owens Specialist Recruitment we are experiencing a sustained period of organic growth in our Construction Division.

As a result we are seeking applications from experienced Recruitment Professionals to join our Glasgow operation with a view to helping us expand our footprint within the sector whilst also taking advantage of the high volume job flow we are currently experiencing.

Experience within the Construction sector would be advantageous but not essential as would experience of working on a Perm, Freelance or Mixed desk or handling either volume campaigns or search and selection recruitment across a number of disciplines.

You may be a Recruitment Consultant new to the industry or a Senior Consultant looking to progress at a faster pace than currently on offer at your present organisation.

You may even be a more experienced individual at Manager or Director level looking to spread your wings and actually be able to fully implement your business plan or strategy without having to wade through the corporate mud or be blocked by your current boss.

For us it's more about the individual than the title or length or service.

About us

Established in 2007 as Xltec Recruitment the organisation underwent a rebrand in 2018 after 11 years of successful trading specifically within the Oil & Gas industry. The idea behind the rebrand was to position the organisation to deliver a more tailored recruitment offering to the Construction, Digital Technology, Oil & Gas and Professional Service sectors.

Following 3 years trading as Clarkson Owens we dominate the Glasgow Construction market for Construction Management and Commercial Appointments partnering some of Scotland and the UK's largest contractors as well as the SME community.

Our strategy is to grow and expand organically, preferring to invest in individuals rather than targeting sectors ,although sometimes the business finds us and we are forced to react.

In anything we do or undertake we aim to be the best, to dominate the market and whilst doing so deliver the best customer experience to both our clients and candidates.

What you'll need to succeed with us

You will possess a talent for building relationships - Number One. You will be resilient, persistent and determined in order to achieve results. You will be focused, outgoing and confident.

You will operate with honesty and integrity and realise the importance of clear and regular communication with your candidates and clients as being your duty of care and responsibility.

What you'll get in return from us

The opportunity to work with and grow your career with within a forward thinking organisation where you will be judged on your results and not micro-managed around KPI's to satisfy a Senior Management Team with nothing better to do than to scrutinise and debate figures.
