Eden Search & Select is a trusted partner for some of the leading businesses in the Food & Drink, Fresh Produce and Agriculture sectors specialising in executive search (from senior management to Board level). We passionately believe that effective research and long term relationships are vital in developing a leading business and we are looking for talented individuals who share our beliefs.
Recent successes and continuing growth mean that we now require an exceptional Research Associate to join our team. The Research function is a cornerstone of our business, tasked with developing key relationships with the leading talent in our sectors and understanding the intricacies of each project. The role will be heavily involved in the initiation and execution of assignments, with an emphasis placed on interviewing the most qualified professionals that match our brief. We have a strong team ethos so you’ll be working closely with the Consultancy Team and be expected to have a voice and add value to the wider business as we continue to grow.
At Eden you will be given the freedom to utilise all the research tools you wish (market mapping, social media, trade journals) but you will be expected to ‘think outside of the box’ and to constantly challenge yourself. You’ll need to be logical, thorough and happy to pick up the phone and build rapport with key contacts. You won’t be scared to ask difficult questions to truly understand someone as well as have the drive to turn over every stone until you find the perfect candidate even in the toughest of projects.
We think this role would suit either a recent graduate who is looking to develop a career in executive recruitment or an experienced Research Associate who is looking for a new challenge within a fast growing business. If this sounds like you and if you have the ambition, the tenacity and the drive to be a part of our team then please get in touch with Darren Houghton on 0113 834 6634 or at firstname.lastname@example.org for a confidential discussion.
