Eight reasons Vertical Recruitment is a great place to work

Training & Development

Supporting you to achieve your potential and career goals is incredibly important to us.

We invested heavily in our recruitment consultant development programme, delivered by our trusted training partner with contributions from our Directors.

All new starters enjoy a 6-month programme, delivered through face-to-face coaching, online video sessions and practical on-the-job training. Through a combination of workbooks and role-play activities, you will acquire the skills, habits and behaviours required to become a high performer.

The programme includes topics such as:

  • How to succeed in recruitment
  • Candidate generation
  • How to qualify and interview candidates
  • Lead generation and business intelligence
  • Writing job advertisements
  • How to work proactively rather than reactively
  • Conducting a search assignment/headhunt

An Award Winning Team

In 2019, we received the Grafters’ Best Construction Recruitment Consultant Award. The Grafters celebrate the best of the North West Property & Construction Industry, which means you will be part of a company recognised for delivering a high-quality, reputable service.

Staff Rewards and Benefits

We offer a highly competitive, uncapped commission structure that pays up to 25% of monthly billings, with an additional quarterly bonus paid for high-achievers.

Our staff receive a company pension scheme, access to our bike-to-work program and rewards through our quarterly social incentive scheme. Rewards on offer depend on the overall office performance and have previously included weekend breaks away, race days and meals out. We also finish early on a Friday!

Sports & Social Events

We are a social bunch and welcome a bit of healthy competition, so we enjoy taking part in events as a team. Previously we have taken part in the JLL Property Triathlon, the 3 Peaks Challenge and the Great Manchester Run and are always looking for new willing team members. We have an office bar too for Friday drinks and a chance to chat about our week and celebrate our successes.

City-centre working

We are located just a few minutes walk from the centre of Manchester which offers plenty of shops, restaurants, cultural destinations and gyms. We offer subsidised parking at a cost-effective underground car park 2 minutes’ walk from the office.

Industry Networking

We pride ourselves on our industry knowledge and relationships and enjoy building on these at some of the region’s best industry events. We have sponsored the RICS Matrics Sumer Soiree for the last six years and can often be seen at Place North West social events, offering you an excellent opportunity to celebrate the industry and build your own network. We also partner with Place North West for our biannual salary survey to ensure we are ahead of the competition for market and salary information.

Social Media

In addition to recruitment training, we have quarterly social media and creative content writing sessions with an external Marketing company. We believe social media is now the real driver for finding talent and making our employer brand known.

Clear Progression Plan

All Vertical employees have a clear progression plan mapped out from day one, which enables you to be promoted within a 3, 6 and 12-month period. For those interested in management and developing a team, we have a management programme to help you reach your goals and develop your career to become a director.

Trainees enjoy transparent benchmarks for their development which coincides with their training sessions, so they know they are on track from week 1 to complete their 6-month new starter journey.


At Vertical Recruitment, we understand the importance of keeping up to date with technological developments. As new trends constantly emerge, we regularly review our systems to ensure our consultants have access to the best possible tools available. Our staff enjoy such things as LinkedIn Recruiter licenses, Horizon phone system for agile working and access to multiple job posting websites, all integrated with our CRM system.
