Senior IT Recruiter

We’re looking for an experienced Senior IT Recruiter to join our team based in the UK.

Shipley GB / Contract / Remote OK

We’re an R&D technology partner that develops cutting-edge ‘Internet of Things (IoT) smart, connected products, video and broadband end-user equipment, streaming TV devices, networks and platforms.

We want every team member to feel empowered, have a say in our future, and share in our success.

If that is something you can get excited about, we'd love to hear from you.

How you will spend your time

We don’t sell products; we sell expertise. That means our technical bar is set very high, and we only hire the best. This makes recruiting for Red a real challenge, but a rewarding one which will take you out of your comfort zone every day.

As a Senior IT Recruiter, you’ll provide a comprehensive recruitment service for some of our key programmes and projects. We recruit for Software Engineers, Hardware Engineers, Integrators, and Architects, amongst other things. You’ll need to speak the lingo, and have considerable experience in technical recruitment already, to help you hit the ground running.

People with the right kind of expertise (C, C++, Java, Android, Embedded Linux) aren’t easy to find. That means you’ll need to be adept at proactive candidate search, using LinkedIn Recruiter and other tools. You’ll couple this with an honest, authentic approach and a real belief in adding value with every interaction.

Part of your role will be managing an extensive network of suppliers, including recruitment agencies, contractors, and other service providers. You should be confident managing these kinds of relationships, including dealing with any issues – whether practical or contractual – and negotiating terms on a variety of business-to-business agreements, whilst keeping an eye on all of the relevant rules and legislation.

This is a fast-moving and pressurised role, and our team deals with plenty of uncertainty. Our customer’s needs and requirements can change and, when they do, we have to react quickly, providing solutions to tight deadlines and even tighter specifications. This means that hard work, resilience, innovation, and expectation management are our bread-and-butter.

To us, recruitment isn’t just another business process. We’re the first point of contact that many people will have with Red, so every interaction is important, and every conversation counts. We’re growing at an incredible pace, and our biggest challenge is to continue to rapidly scale up our workforce, whilst staying true to these principles and standing out from the crowd in a competitive marketplace.

If you have the right kind of experience, and this sounds like the challenge for you, we’d love for you to apply below.

What you will need to bring

Mandatory Skills

  • A strong track record in recruitment, preferably “in-house” – Essential
  • The ability to build strong, mutually beneficial relationships with a large variety of stakeholders (candidates, contractors, colleagues and customers) – Essential
  • Experience recruiting for high volumes of software engineers (preferably C, C++, Java, Android) – Essential
  • Excellent communication skills, over the phone, in person and on e-mail – Essential
  • Broad knowledge of relevant UK legislation (GDPR, IR35 etc.) – Essential
  • The ability to process and prioritise a broad set of inputs, and large workload, with minimal direction – Essential

Desirable Tech Skills

  • Experience of recruitment in Poland
  • Experience within a Technology Consultancy environment

What you will get in return

  • Employee ownership; a chance to be part of something unique
  • A competitive salary that grows with your career
  • A twice-yearly company bonus scheme
  • Full personal medical cover, which can be upgraded to cover your family
  • 5% matched contributory pension
  • Opportunities to train, develop and grow your career
  • 25 days’ holiday as standard, rising an extra day every year
  • A flexible and risk-averse approach to remote work
  • Access to the “Headspace” mindfulness app

Agile Software Expert

We’re looking for a superb Software Engineer to join us and share your superpowers! You’ll set the direction and act as the technical expert in one of our Agile development teams.

Shipley GB / Full Time / Remote OK

Learn more about this role

Consult Red is an employee-owned company and a trusted partner to some of the world’s largest brands. We’re an R&D technology partner that develops cutting-edge ‘Internet of Things (IoT) smart, connected products, video and broadband end-user equipment, streaming TV devices, networks and platforms.

The employees are the business owners, and we work together with shared values and purpose towards our common goals. We want every team member to feel empowered, have a say in our future, and share in our success.

You can find out more about our company, and what it’s like to work with us, on our LinkedIn or Glassdoor pages. 

If that is something you can get excited about, we'd love to hear from you.

How you will spend your time

In this role, you’ll build on your proven experience of software development and add in the ability to lead and inspire your team.

In footballing terms, you’re the Captain, not the Manager. You’ll still be in a hands-on technical role, working day-to-day in a Scrum team, but you’ll be the one your colleagues look to for support, to set their technical direction, help them out of sticky situations, and advise them on the right approach to a problem. Our clients will know you as the most dynamic member of the team (though not necessarily the most senior in years) and as someone they can rely upon to answer their questions and explain difficult technical stuff in a down-to-earth way.

You’ll have excellent knowledge of software development. We mainly use C++ or Java, so experience with those is really helpful, but if you can show expertise in other languages, good theoretical knowledge and an ability to learn quickly we’d still love to hear from you.

You’ll generally be part of an established Agile (Scrum) team. While Scrum teams don’t officially have leaders, you’ll be able to use your experience to offer support and advice to other members of the team.

The work involves the delivery of a wide array of bespoke customer projects – you might be working on anything from the next generation of TV streaming box to a new embedded Internet-of-Things device that might sit at the heart of the home of the future.

Our customers value our expertise and industry experience, so they will look to you for advice, feedback and solutions to a variety of technical problems. This means you’ll need to be knowledgeable, approachable and adaptable; stepping in to assist proactively, wherever you see a potential bump in the road.

This is a highly visible role within the business and, as well as helping others, you’ll have significant opportunities to train, develop yourself, and to progress your own career at Red Embedded.

What you will need to bring

Mandatory Skills

  • Really strong, hands-on, software engineering experience
  • Great knowledge of modern software engineering techniques – such as object-oriented design, unit testing/test-driven development, CI/CD, use of code analysis tools
  • You are likely to have experience of developing in languages such as C++ or Java, but you’ll also be comfortable with the idea of learning new languages and technologies quickly
  • Experience working in Agile/Scrum teams
  • Experience mentoring and supporting other engineers on your team. While this doesn’t need to be in a formal management/leadership capacity, you will be a “people person” and a very strong team player, and you’ll know how to encourage a team to achieve it’s technical goals and hit deadlines
  • A desire to grow your career – you’ll be the sort of person who is always up for a challenge, interested to learn new things and gain new experience
  • A flexible, can-do approach
  • Outstanding communication skills; you’ll be confident discussing technical matters with both technical and non-technical people

Desirable Tech Skills

Experience with any of the following is useful, although not required – an ability and willingness to learn is just as important.

C++11 / STL or frameworks such as Qt • Embedded or mobile Java, JNI • Linux development / kernel / driver / networking code • Android / AOSP development • RTOS • GCC / GDB • TDD and Unit Testing frameworks such as Google Test / Mockito / JUnit • Software development for consumer electronics, Internet of Things, or TV • Audio, Video & TV standards • Networking protocols and standards including TCP/IP, Wi-Fi, UPnP / DLNA, HLS, MPEG-DASH • Cloud development for AWS / Google Cloud / Microsoft Azure • Agile / Scrum / Kanban • UML • Use of planning tools e.g. Jira, MS Project

What you will get in return

  • A competitive salary which will grow with your career.
  • A twice-yearly company bonus scheme
  • Opportunities to train, develop and grow, as well as learning from talented colleagues
  • 25 days’ holiday as standard, rising an extra day for every year you stay with us up to a maximum of 30 days
  • A flexible approach to remote work and a great work-life balance.
  • Relocation assistance if you’re considering moving more locally.
