Job Description

Pitch is an independent recruitment consultancy based in the Colmore District of Birmingham. Established in 2007, our culture and service are built on reputation, honesty and trust. To our clients we offer an agile, adaptable and a highly efficient service - although “boutique like” we have the infrastructure and processes to tackle any project. Our specialism has historically been within marketing, PR, Digital and Creative. Over the last 3 years Pitch has begun to evolve and broaden its offering and is now gearing up for a period of growth.

To move forward in line with our vision we are looking to strengthen our Leadership Team with the appointment of a Managing Consultant

This person would be heading up our team of freelance/interim recruiters. The position is still a billable role so we need someone with a proven track record of managing a team of at least three, but who is also still hands on and able to identify and secure business. 

Given our strategy for growth, having experience in marketing recruitment isn’t crucial. We will equally consider experience in sales, FMCG, marketing or digital/tech.

We are also not looking for someone who simply wants to manage a team and bill. We are looking for a commercially minded and ambitious professional who has a genuine interest in being part of shaping and steering our business forward. We are looking for someone who can spot opportunities, improvements and drive ideas and solutions to ensure our offering is constantly evolving. This role is key to strengthening our Leadership Team.
