Working As A Recruiter For Orchard

All recruitment companies operate in different ways and finding the right company that works for you is just as big a challenge as finding the right individual is for us. We have a big mix of clients and we cover a wide range of areas within our speciality of Digital, Creative and Marketing recruitment.

We enjoy our sector, actually we are passionate and fairly compulsive about our sector. You will always find us at industry events, educational or social, and our team are the most knowledgable recruitment consultants that work in North of England. To be successful at Orchard you will need to share this passion for Digital, Creative or Marketing, and have a real thirst to learn and develop as an individual. Whilst highly successful, our consultants all work in their own way and we try to take as relaxed an approach to KPI's as possible.

If you need a 'whip cracking' to keep you motivated, we're probably not the right company for you. We all achieve and achieve well, but we do it in a manner that makes our environment enjoyable, and keeps our clients happy. Our team and environment is very important to us.

Our consultants work with an allocated client base to ensure that they have sufficient work and to ensure that all our clients receive the service they deserve. We have specialists in both offices covering freelance and permanent recruitment in Creative, Agency Account and Project Management, and Marketing, across both traditional and digital.

Our regular hours are 9.00am to 5.30pm, Monday to Friday, as we believe in allowing you the freedom to we do work in a deadline environment so occasionally people will like finish a search off rather then leave it till the next day. Many of the industry events we attend happen in the evening though many occur during regular office hours too.

If you would like to chat to us to see if we can help you progress or start your recruitment career then please feel free to contact Mike Carter on 0161 455 0055, or email mike [at] orchard.co.uk to arrange a confidential chat.

Paintballing, a trip to the theatre, go-karting, meals out, spa days,…. if you have an idea, throw it in the pot and we will pick up the tab.

Never sick?
If you take less then 3 days sick leave a year, we will give you an additional £250 bonus End of Year Fun - Every year we look to organise a get away event to celebrate our year's success, and help you celebrate all your hard work.
