All great businesses are built on the best foundations and part of SThree’s success is its network of regional offices. Each has its own character and each offers great career opportunities. Leeds is no different, it’s not just the third largest city in the UK it’s one of the largest financial centres in the country and home to a strong new media and technological economy.
So could Leeds be the right place to take your career to the next level. Let’s take a look.
What’s the focus of the Leeds office?
The Leeds office is buzzing. As we’re in the heart of the North of England so we sit across one of the hottest technology regions in the UK. We specialize in Contract IT roles through Real Staffing, offering end-to-end contract solutions and with access to over 100,000 people who work in the digital sector it offers our specialist recruiters with huge opportunities.
Leeds currently has the biggest IT Contract book in the UK region and we’ve enjoyed substantial growth this year, in both headcount and profitability and won SThree Contract Team of the Year.
We are also expanding our offering into new emerging markets as well as supplementing the core markets we have historically been successful in. The team work as a unit within their respective locations and technology stacks to develop their candidate and client relationships – a strategy which has paid dividends this year! This approach certainly worked for Rachel Kettlewell, who won the Top Assist spot on the Ibiza Holiday, one of the top incentive trips for SThree employees.
Even if you don’t make Ibiza there’s plenty of other ways of celebrating success and we hold regular events with sales days happening quarterly as well as innovative competitions, including The Real Leeds Apprentice, Real Leeds Derby and lots more. We also reward our team by celebrating our Office Favorite and have Quarterly Incentive winners.
What’s happening in Leeds?
In some ways Leeds is one of the best kept secrets in the country, the city has undergone a huge makeover in the last couple of years. As industry declined the city moved over to a service economy and became a technology and internet hub.
The whole city has undergone a transformation and moved a bit upmarket with Leeds Trinity becoming the go to place for dining and shopping. The development shows no sign of stopping with the city’s 4 quarters all getting a face lift. Underneath the new modern exterior lies the proud Yorkshire traditions which are easily recognizable. You won’t get far without hearing someone talking about how much they love Tetley’s Bitter, Yorkshire Puddings, Treble Winners Leeds Rhinos or the “not so famous anymore” Leeds United.
Who are we looking for?
We are looking for people who want to grow and develop with us. That’s why we offer new starters a tailored in-house training and intensive Learning and Developing Programme to enable them to build a successful career and business for themselves.
A job in sales offers a lot of variety too and you need to be excited about meeting people face to face or engaging them over the phone. The perfect fit for our team would be someone who’s creative and enthusiastic and can bring new ideas to the table; if you throw in a positive attitude and taking pride in your achievements then recruitment and SThree could be right for you.
