Executive Search /
Senior Data & AI Recruiter

Are you ready to be the owner of your own destiny and set your own objectives?

Sick of all the admin and able to get the help needed to close deals?

Want help sourcing so you can focus on fulfilling the clients' needs?

Oktet is a remote-first, employee-centric executive search firm specialising in finding senior experts and business leaders in data and AI driven clients. Oktet is entering the UK Executive Search/Recruitment market and looking for exceptional Search talent who want to become an equity partner, but don’t want the pain of actually running a business.

Collaborating with Oktet is the best option for entrepreneurial executive search consultants like yourself. We offer complete transparency, no manager checking you're at your desk 9-to-5 and definitely no shiny suits like regular City recruiters.

We operate under the rare belief that our people come first. Our mission is your vision where you get to build your own desk with all the tools and automation you need.

In partnership with Oktet you’re in business for yourself, but never by yourself.

The Opportunity

We’re looking for an up and coming Executive Search Consultant or Data & AI Recruiter who has worked with senior data and AI talent and has a proven ability to build long term repeatable business. You will be an instrumental part of the first tranche of UK hiring helping to build the pipeline with an expert sourcing team and a clearly defined path to equity partner.

Initially your focus will be on the UK market, however you are free to hunt wherever you like because you are the owner of your own business within a business (with a remuneration package to match).

The Selling Points

  • We’re striving to automate as much as we can, allowing you to focus on what you do best, so don’t worry about invoices, finance, most of your sourcing, legal, etc… we got that covered.
  • 100% remote, work from anywhere (limited only by things outside our control like insurances, taxation, time zones, etc.)
  • Weekly online/F2F socials with ‘beer/coffee/drink money’.
  • Monthly get and an annual fully paid off-site training and social event (I hope you like sailing in warmer climates…).
  • Access to health insurance, L&D benefits, and other schemes after probation.
  • After 12 months and achieving mutually agreed targets, you will be invited to join the equity partner program, a 12 week training program which will allow you to become a part owner of the business.
  • Above industry average commission structure (it starts at 40%...).

The Requirements

  • You will have 2-3 years ++ of Executive Search or Perm recruitment experience, ideally with experience of hiring senior data, AI and leadership positions either retained or contingent.
  • You have proven ability to deliver against set targets and maybe have grown your own desk of senior data and AI professionals.
  • You will have worked in a 360 degree role before so you know what it is like, although you will be working in tandem with our in-house sourcing specialists (so it's more like 180-270 degree haha).
  • You will have the skill set to acquire new business even if you have not done this recently in a recruitment firm, perhaps you have sales experience from another industry or have the ability and confidence to pick up new clients because of your c-suite relationship-building skills.
  • It would be preferential if you have hired at least one sector specialism before, e.g. retail, utilities, government or others.
  • You have right to work in the UK (we are unable to sponsor at this stage).
