"Proactive and determined, as a Principal Recruiter you’ve built deep rooted relationships within your technical specialism with advocates who are introducing you to new clients. You don’t just work hard; you work smart and you’re consistently doing it to achieve high performance. You’re an integral part of the team and taking the lead on internal and external initiatives. You’ll be ready to manage a team if people management is your goal or remain a valuable individual contributor and core account manager. You’re a vital source of knowledge and someone that anyone can come to for advice and support."

Chris Spranklen
Managing Director


At Burns Sheehan, we help the UK’s leading tech-companies grow to their full potential and have embedded ourselves at the centre of the tech community. Based in London and Manchester, for 19 years we’ve built strong, lasting relationships with some big names you might recognise: Dojo, Beauty Pie, and Gousto, just to name a few. We’ve helped start-ups to launch, scale-ups to build teams, and household names to transform their technology.

We’ve cultivated a grown-up, transparent environment & provide our teams with all the support they need to thrive. We’re now on the lookout for experienced, ambitious recruiters to join our Data team!

What you’ll be doing: 

  • Working the entire 360 recruitment cycle: a blend of business development, candidate re-engagement, recruitment & account management.
  • Leveraging our existing connections along with your own network to map out target clients in our core sectors such as AI, FinTech and purpose-driven companies, uncovering and converting new leads and opportunities.
  • Collaborate with our marketing team to produce & share market-leading events, insights & resources from within your tech specialism to build relationships & your personal brand.

A typical day in the life of a Principal Data Recruiter:

We believe in a relationship-led approach when it comes to recruitment and our KPIs reflect that. Each day is about building genuine relationships and sharing insights into the market that help you and your network stay ahead. Your aim? To become a trusted advisor to your network and unlock doors to fresh opportunities and leads. 

  • Kicking off with 5 daily calls to reconnect with candidates.
  • Touching base with about 5 contacts daily to feel the heartbeat of the market and hear the latest on the hiring front.
  • Grabbing a cup of coffee with someone in your network. Forget being glued to your desk daily; go out there and meet people - it's how the best relationships are made. ☕️


What can we offer you?

  • A personalised & interactive training programme tailored to your career goals, with chances to shine as an IC or step up as a leader.
  • Opportunities to manage core accounts and head exciting talent projects, driving your career progression and maximising your earning potential.
  • The latest recruitment tools at your fingertips, to make your job not just easier but also enjoyable.


A quick peek at us, by the numbers:

  • 19 years old as a business
  • 2 offices in central London & Manchester
  • A NPS score we’re pretty proud of: 78.7
  • A solid 1.4:1 CV to interview ratio
  • Over 24 stand-out events organised by the team in the last year alone
  • 6 seasons of our BD podcast, the Start-Up Diaries

Some of the perks of joining us:

🎯 Finish early on Fridays, and even earlier when we reach our targets.

✈️ Annual reward trips you'll be talking about all year (think skiing, Berlin & Paris).

🧘 Personal Days - 3 extra days off that can be taken spontaneously whenever you like.

🏝 Holiday allowance that grows with every year you're with us.

  • A curious spirit and big ambitions for a fulfilling career in tech recruitment.
