Joinus | Ammonite Group - UK's Leading Data & Analytics Recruitment


Join Ammonite Group

We are cementing our reputation as the ‘go to’ data & analytics specialists. The result is, we’re hiring!

Join Ammonite Group

We founded Ammonite Group in 2013 because we know the data & analytics market, it has explosive growth and there are hardly any recruitment specialists purely focused on this market. Sure there any number of general IT recruiters that dabble in this area but we want to ensure that all of our resources and brand building activities are concentrated on success in this market.

We don’t answer to a board of directors, committee or external investors. Ammonite Group are fully independent, privately funded and directed by the co-founders so that we can make timely, sensible decisions and react to the changing needs of clients, candidates and staff.

Our raison d’être is technical and analytical contract & permanent roles in BI, Big Data & Data Science. We are excited about this area of cutting edge business services. We are building the Ammonite Group brand to be the strongest recruitment brand in this market. We already sponsor the Europe’s largest SQL Server community conference and London Data Science meetups. We’re building relevant Data Science & Big Data communities and host specialist key note speaker.

Our strengths are our understanding of our market & clients, our straight forward, open communication style and our reputation in the recruitment market.

Why join?

If you are joining a relatively new company, you want the excitement and ‘possibilities’ that this holds for your career but want to minimize unnecessary risks. The founders have a demonstrable track record of building successful companies, divisions, teams and individuals. Nothing is guaranteed but past success is a strong indicator of future success. As a demonstration of our intent and support we have already backed one of our Directors to start their own business within the Group in May 2015.

Phil Marks has been an MD of PLC and large independent recruitment companies for 15 years, following 10 years ‘on the front line’ in recruitment. He’s successfully developed divisions and companies and has been an advisor to over 20 specialist recruitment businesses in the UK over the last 5 years. He’s previously grown and directed businesses of 100+ people in IT, financial services and accountancy recruitment.

James Proctor has been a COO, Director and hands on billing manager for 13 years. The biggest ever biller and head of UK Contracts for one of the UK’s largest independent recruiters, leading from the front he’s developed top billers and future leaders.

Over our first 3 years Ammonite Group has won business with some of the UK’s best blue chip brands as well as innovative on-line SME’s. We’ve gained a solid reputation in our candidate communities for understanding their markets, delivering on our promises and strong, reliable communication.

We have a clear 4 stage strategic vision & ambition for the development of our staff, the company and the Ammonite Group brand.

Vision & Ambition;

*Stage 1 – 100% complete. Solid database, established blue chip clients, strong contractor book

*Stage 2 – develop future leaders of Ammonite’s Contract & Permanent divisions to work alongside the founders and grow the business, becoming partners of Ammonite Group in the process. In fact, in 2015 we backed one of our Directors to start their own business within the Group

*Stage 3 – international expansion in New York

*Stage 4 – Founders and Partners to share the spoils of success and then push on for further growth


Infrastructure should support not hinder sales and delivery. We’ve switched and streamlined our CRM, focused our marketing and developed our brand to help drive sales not create admin or burden for staff. This mantra will continue throughout our growth.

Why join now – at Stage 2

Stage 2 is unique, offering a future stake in Ammonite Group. It’s about timing. Being the boss instead of reporting to them.

We have recently entered Stage 2, which is all about the future leadership of Ammonite Group. We decided from the outset to grow Ammonite Group by working hand in hand with a few key initial staff partners, offering ownership, personal mentoring to gain a true understanding of business management, shared rewards and personal development.

The Roles

Permanent Recruitment Leader – An Overview
You are undoubtedly a successful permanent recruiter at present. However, as with all entrepreneurs, you have a desire for real ownership, a big say in your own destiny, cast iron guarantees of progression and a meaningful piece of the pie.

You’re ready to branch out, want an entrepreneurial environment but don’t want to go it alone. You want the best of both worlds.

This is a chance to really use your business acumen, fulfill your ambition, get in at the ground floor and expand with the business. You will directly affect the direction of the business and at the same time, be fully supported and mentored. Mutually agreed successes will trigger ownership, promotions and rewards guaranteed in your employment contract from the outset. Our stated aim is that we will fully share the direction, running and success of Ammonite Group with you, a future leader of the business.

You will lead and grow your own permanent team, recruiting people in BI, Big Data and Data Science. Following the success of the Contracts Division, the permanent business has a very strong platform of live vacancies and excellent leads to build on.

A truly global market, with an excellent London core, you will have the freedom to utilise contingency and search methods and negotiate the right deal for your clients. You will utilise your core recruiting expertise and support further development of your staff leadership capabilities.

Background & Attributes

You have 2-5 years’ experience as a successful permanent recruiter from a relevant, technical market. You also have a burning desire to develop your mentoring or management capabilities and grow your own business and team.

You will lead from the front to put your own stamp on permanent recruitment processes, develop your own business and build on the vibrant, live portfolio of clients and jobs we have already established.

Trainee Consultants
As a Trainee Consultant, you will be fully supported by the Directors of the business with an in-house and external suite of training. We have a comprehensive, tried and tested 2-year training programme built to establish you as a Senior Recruitment Consultant at the end of that period.

You will work in a meritocracy, with career advancement based on your success and demonstration of common sense and sound business judgement. As a relatively new business, we are fully focused on ensuring the individual success of our new recruits as future leaders of Ammonite Group.

Data & analytics is arguably the fastest growing sector in recruitment. 95% of all global data has been generated in the last 2 years and this phenomenon is expected to be repeated again in the next 2.

We’re an ambitious SME. We want the best leaders and staff. So we also offer the following packages depending on your seniority and success;

  • Mature working environment
  • Transparent, competitive commission structure
  • Genuine ownership opportunities
  • Profit share & bonuses
  • Lunch clubs & winners trips
  • Gym & private club memberships

Ammonite Group are looking to grow significantly over the next five years. If you are looking for a firm that has a sound financial footing that believes in building a recruitment company that has real brand value, and has all the benefits that a first class recruitment company should have we would definitely want to meet you for a confidential, informal drink.

I stress that this is a unique time to join Ammonite Group.
