Career Rewards

While technology recruitment is incredibly tough with long hours and constant stress, it is also very rewarding. A successful and growing recruitment company can offer generous financial incentives, the opportunity for travel and room for professional development.

At J People we believe in supporting and rewarding performance. We operate a number of incentives and reward schemes to realise the ambitions of our employees, including:


  • Competitive basic salary based on experience
  • The increased basic salary for Managing Consultants
  • On-target uncapped individual commission scheme paying 20% of the full GP


  • Regular training and discussion forums, including a comprehensive self-study library, to support and accelerate your path to becoming a 'Super Biller'
  • Regular company funded events and nights out
  • Incentives to win daily, weekly, monthly and quarterly rewards
  • Monthly performance reviews and daily one-to-one meetings
  • Weekly operational stats to help consultants identify their strengths and weaknesses
  • Bespoke recruitment software tailored for our specialist technical market simplifies patch running
  • Brand names within contract and permanent specialities provide consultants with the liberty to run business-within-business ventures
  • Exposure to the full hierarchy, from Junior Developers to CEOs of multimillion pound companies.
  • All expenses paid international travel and experience (Consultants are expected to visit their clients at least 4 times a year)


Niche technology Recruitment is one of the most stable industries, so long as technology professionals are available and in demand, successful recruitment agencies will grow. This is particularly true for headhunters working in candidate-driven markets. While official certifications and years of experience are paramount in other careers, recruitment companies focus on performance. This means there are fewer barriers – making valuable and lasting placements is the only true requirement.

Financial Rewards

With exceptional recruiters in the UK earning up to 6 figure salaries, the market can be fiercely competitive. At J People our focus on the niche Java market means our top 5 billers will earn anything from £60K-£100K and it is not uncommon for graduates to use recruitment as a fast-track mechanism to move into other commercial arenas. James Caan and Robert Stiff are just two entrepreneurs who started out in recruitment. There is a direct relationship between the work a recruitment consultant puts in and their annual income.

Transferrable skills

J People is committed to training, supporting and taking an active interest in our employees. Besides on-the-job training our dedicated training manager teaches over 40 different master classes; everything you learn in our company provides you with valuable skills that can be transferred to any other recruitment company in the world. After 6 months of recruitment experience, you can expect to be headhunted on a weekly basis by other agencies, especially if you have built up a reputation within a specific market.
