Research Associate

At Eversearch, we have a different perspective on Recruitment.  We pride ourselves on delivering a comprehensive, quality driven service from the outset.


Our role, as a trusted partner to our clients, is to provide bespoke high-performing talent, both pro-actively and on-demand.  We collaborate with some of the brightest minds in Risk - across three key sectors; Banking & Financial Services, Energy & Natural Resources, and Technology.


Our approach underlines our distinction.  We excel in forging great relationships and cultivating unique opportunities.  Our team continually seeks innovative ways to add value to both the candidate and client experience.  As a result, a large proportion of our work derives from repeat customers.


We have great ambition and incredible goals; how high do you set your bar for success?


Our mission is to be the partner of choice, a leader in the field.


To get there, we’re about to embark on an exciting journey - We’re ready, are you?


As a Research Associate you will undergo intensive training acquiring the skills and competencies required to succeed.  You will identify, track and engage high-calibre professionals via a research-driven, humanised approach.


We nurture meritocracy. For the right individual, there is a clear fast-track to develop real ownership in the business.


Day to day responsibilities would involve:


  • Industry research and corporate mapping of upper quartile talent.

  • Building relationships with market sources; cultivating an unrivalled personal network based on trust, integrity and knowledge.

  • Engaging your target audience through innovative digital strategies alongside traditional methods.

  • Pro-actively representing identified candidates to key clients (and vice-versa).

  • Winning: We celebrate the wins together and you should be passionate about achieving.

  • Contributing to the small but growing office culture.  Definitely not a cog in a wheel!


We offer:

  • A highly competitive commission structure (uncapped).

  • Quarterly and annual incentives.

  • A highly supportive and dynamic work environment. 


Exciting right?  Well, fit is important for us also.


You will be:

  • Hungry, ambitious and self-motivated. 

  • Diligent & results driven: You get it done. Well.

  • Confident & Inquisitive: Proficient in asking great questions and not being shy about it.

  • Natural ability to build relationships, quickly and sincerely.

  • An ambassador of the company, promoting a professional service and an unwavering work ethic.

  • Highly technically literate (knowledge of data mining, social media and digital platforms are useful).

  • Interested in the world around you.


You will have an excellent education, classroom or otherwise, with a leaning towards finance / economics. A degree is highly attractive, but attitude and capabilities will be more of a defining factor to the selection.


Given future ambitions for the company, we are keen to speak with budding leaders who possess a passion for emerging technologies and industries.
