About us:

Young Foodies is the leading service provider for high growth consumer businesses across the UK. It is most well known for our Community which supports more than 1500 brands and growing - this community fuels the rest of the business with brands to partner with.

Our recruitment function is only 3 years old and has grown explosively since launch - famous for hiring entire teams in the most successful new brands in the industry. This sits alongside a number of other services, from supply chain management, to team training, to sales and commercial support and more.

We are on track to double the size of the recruitment business this year due to a high volume of incoming roles through the Community. So we are looking to scale our team significantly over the coming months.

There are 2 red hot desks that we are looking for recruiters to lead.

  • Sales - covering roles from £30-70k
  • Marketing - covering roles from £30-70k

Both desks have a steady flow of inbound leads from awesome brands - just check out our website to see some of the businesses we work with.

This, combined with our awesome database and depth of partnership with our clients means we have a proven track record of high productivity per recruiter - £23k per month per recruiter based on the last 2 months average.

What’s in it for you:

Young Foodies is different to any sort of traditional recruitment agency, we only work on an exclusive or retained basis with our clients, these include brands such as: Rubies in the Rubble, Cheesgeek, Little Moons, Mallow & Marsh, Crosta & Mollica, Milliways and many more new and innovative brands that are bringing so much to the FMCG industry. 

You will have the chance to engage with founders and leaders at face to face clients meetings, networking events and yearly parties (our Community Christmas party is one for the history books!). 

Outside of this, Young Foodies has a great development structure in place, your success is our success - we are committed to developing everyone in this business and will do our bit to help you reach your potential, nurturing each and every employee on the path they see fit. 50% of the people that joined us in the past 6 months have already been promoted to the next level.  You will have access to an abundance of training sessions to participate in throughout the year, attending these alongside other like minded people in the industry and we offer quarterly book clubs, offsites and full team training sessions to bring everyone together.

About you:

You must be skilled at identifying and landing incredible people in roles at FMCG challenger brands, whilst also developing collaborative relationships with brands and hiring managers. This is an opportunity to not only make a name for yourself and bill well, but to come in early in an entrepreneurial mission-led business.

We are open to many different profiles, if you've got a background in sales, business development or customer relations then you have lots of transferable skills and we would love to chat with you.

About the role:

The role itself will involve:

  • Management of the end-to-end recruitment process, from taking and shaping role briefings with brands, to supporting candidates through the interview process to close.
  • You will build consultative relationships and advise on the long-term hiring plans for our brands, so we continue to support their scaling in the right way.
  • A competitive salary and commission structure
  • 25 days holiday + bank holidays and 1 extra day each year after 3 years of service

Office: Vauxhall, London (if based outside of London we would like you to come into the office at least once a month) - standard is 3 days in the office and 2 from home.
