JOB VACANCY 1

Job Title: Admin / Finance Assistant

Salary: Up to £18K

Location: NG9 2NN / Home Based

It can be so much more than paper shuffling, pen pushing and printer fiddling – can’t it?

Admin underpins a business. It’s the first impression to visitors and callers. It keeps the cogs turning. Without you, the daily grind begins to unwind.

So, answer this: How valued do you feel? Be part of a team that wants to do great things. We have big goals and ambitions.

With us, you’ll perform key admin duties within a group of three associated companies:

  1. Recart… An editorial quality focus on presenting candidates’ motivations and character yielded a 68% improvement in the business’s CV-to-interview success ratio
  2. Adhook… Branded job adverts, crafting businesses’ unique values and passions into words that hook the right characters, not just skill-sets. A 92% advert-to-interview success rate.
  3. My CV Writer… Building compelling, engaging CVs for senior professionals and executives, with standout personal summaries that cut through buzzwords to present the individual.

The Perks…

  • A stable position in a small but progressive business environment
  • Joining an established group of companies with an international client base
  • Gym membership, refreshments, and quarterly team nights out (when we’re allowed to, again!)
  • Work based on trust and output, not set hours
  • Work/home-life balance. We have always operated a remote working and flexible hours policy – even before COVID

Your Future Employer…

We love what we do, and we care about doing things properly. We’re Chamber of Commerce Excellence in Customer Service Award winners.

Your Skills…

  • Experience in a professional, administrative business environment
  • Customer Service experience – for answering queries, whether by phone or email
  • Ideally, finance or finance support experience or a good acumen for numbers and finance
  • A willingness to learn – training is provided across the whole group
  • IT skills – for assisting CV and database management. It would also be great if you had a good foundation of social media experience

JOB VACANCY 2

Job Title: Editorial Assistant / Copywriter

Salary: Up to £22k

Location: NG9 2NN / Home Based

‘Words are our most inexhaustible source of magic…’ – and (Dumbledore forgot to add this…) they also help people get jobs.

Because they drive first impressions, spark conversations, and pave the way for great hires.

From the first skim-read of a job advert to the scanning of the CV number 264 in a pile of 600, first impressions matter. Words matter. And may professionals waste that opportunity.

But we’re changing that. And you can join our mission.

  1. Are you a stickler for speling and a sarge for a grammarians’s’s’ bugbears (…?)
  2. Have you achieved a degree in a writing-focused discipline?
  3. Do you have experience in putting other people’s thoughts and drivers into words?

In this role, you’ll be supporting a triage of businesses: Recart, Adhook, and My CV Writer – the former, a global recruitment business; the latter two, specialist editorial outfits.

Careers and recruitment. It’s just about who you know, right? It’s just down to the luck of the draw? It’s just an admin merry-go-round preceding sales patter and interviews?

To some people, yes, but let’s go look at that secret weapon again…

  • Recart… An editorial quality focus on presenting candidates’ motivations and character yielded a 68% improvement in the business’s CV-to-interview success ratio
  • Adhook… Branded job adverts, crafting businesses’ unique values and passions into words that hook the right characters, not just skillsets. A 92% advert-to-interview success rate.
  • My CV Writer… Building compelling, engaging CVs for senior professionals and executives, with standout personal summaries that cut through buzzwords to present the individual.

Job searching and recruitment doesn’t have to be a numbers game – a people’s lottery – based on the alignment of superfluous character cliches and aggrandising buzzwords.

It’s becoming less and less of a secret because it’s making more and more sense. Our CVs have helped CEOs and technical specialists land jobs. Our job adverts saved one multi-site national business more than £30K in recruitment costs within 18 months.

Wherever you are, desk-bound or in lockdown, you can contribute to our work. Even pre-COVID, we have embraced flexible working.

You’ll be supporting and learning the ropes from an Editorial Manager who is a senior-qualified journalist with 15 years’ professional copywriting experience.

From CV and job advert writing to blogs and social media posts, there’s plenty to get stuck into.

JOB VACANCY 3

Job Title: Digital Marketing and Social Media Content Writer

Salary: Up to £22k

Location: NG9 2NN / Home Based

 Marketing… It’s about joining up the dots, spotting trends, and producing content that grabs people’s attention. It’s the art of contagious conversation-starting, and that’s why you love it.

Digital marketing and social media content are at the heart of a company’s brand. It goes beyond sales and promotion; it’s about ideas, talking points, and engagement.

Do you…?

  • Enjoy finding unique and innovative ways to create and engage audiences?
  • Have a marketing degree and/or at least two years’ relevant industry experience?
  • Offer examples of creativity, social media account management, and digital campaigns?

In this role, you’ll be a voice for three businesses all united by a life-changing theme: people’s careers and working lives.

  • Recart – a global recruitment business specialising in executive permanent roles and contracts
  • Adhook – an HR and hiring support outlet for standout, branded job adverts
  • My CV Writer – a fast-growing editorial business crafting compelling CVs for professionals

We need your expertise crafting interesting content and ideas to keep our audiences engaged, as well as sparking the interest of potential new customers.

With a focus on LinkedIn, our websites, and other platforms, you’ll have authority to bring ideas and informative content to the table, liaising closely with and learning from senior managers.

As our businesses grow, there are strong prospects of this role evolving into a senior digital marketing position. We’re looking for someone who has a thirst for learning, likes to test and try new things, and is curious about how people react to and engage with online business content.

Your Working Life…

Founded and based in Nottingham, we have always embraced flexible working – and we mean that in the true sense, not in the sense of flexibility meaning you can be tied to a desk with no breaks!

In a COVID-19 world and beyond, our team has full flexibility in terms of when and where they work. We provide a laptop and a mobile phone; we keep in touch via email, phone, and Teams.

When the world opens up again, you’ll still have the same freedom, but we would, of course, welcome the chance to get together once or twice a fortnight; nothing beats a good face-to-face ideas meeting!
