Work for Howett Thorpe

Work for Howett Thorpe

Howett Thorpe is an established independent recruitment firm with divisions across accountancy and finance, public practice, qualified finance and business support. We offer unrivalled service to both our candidates and our clients — and as such, over 70% of our business is derived from referrals or recommendations.

Due to our growing reputation in the market, we are now looking to hire people to join our teams.

Whether you are just embarking on your career in sales or recruitment or are a senior-level consultant wanting to work in a truly autonomous environment, we would love to hear from you!  We have openings in our team to work on established areas within the finance team, and unlike our competitors, you will not be given a business area to develop from scratch.

We offer an industry-leading commission scheme, run quarterly incentives and recognise performance whatever your position level. But we are not a business that targets employees based on KPIs. Instead, you will be given full support from the team and will be appointed your own mentor, who will be responsible for professional development and your career journey within Howett Thorpe.

People join our business to become a part of a successful, motivated and stable working culture. Staff retention is a high priority for us, and we work hard to keep our team happy. As a result, we have a dedicated team that provides over 150 years of combined recruitment experience.

Our recruitment roles are predominantly office-based (car parking is provided), although we do also offer the flexibility of working from home.
