Are you Finnish, Swedish, Norwegian or Danish speaking, competitive, money-driven and looking for the next challenge in a fast-paced, fun environment? Harnham is looking for a Finnish, Swedish, Norwegian or Danish speaking recruitment consultant to join our international team here in our London office.


Harnham is the worlds largest data & analytics recruitment agencies with offices in London, Berlin, New York and San Francisco. You will be working in a fun and supportive environment yet a challenging and competitive one which is highly rewarding due to our great, uncapped commissionstructure. Though you work autonomously, you are part of a team and enjoy team nights out, after work drinks as well as sales and sports days. Work hard, play hard.

  • Once you join the team, you will become part of our two-year graduate scheme which will lead the way to management or Principal consultant.
  • Our International team was established in 2015 and is growing ever since. Join our team of 20 international consultants from France, Germany, Spain, Benelux and Nordics and enjoy going on paid business trips to the Nordics multiple times a year
  • Ever dreamt of going on vacation to Las Vegas or the Caribbean and not having to spend one thing? Our annual winner trip takes you on a fully paid vacation oversea!


The role as an international recruitment consultant has many aspects, each requires a different set of skills. You will be using your language skills on a daily basis as you will be talking to candidates and clients in English and Finnish, Swedish, Norwegian or Danish.

  • As a recruitment consultant you are responsible for managing the whole 360 degrees recruitment cycle autonomously.
  • One of your main focusses will be business development in the Nordcis market and building rapport with clients within the Nordics. You will be cold calling Managers and build a relationship with the company.
  • You will be responsible for sourcing and talking to suitable candidates for your current roles and businesses.
  • Part of your day to day task will be negotiating fees with clients as well as scheduling Interviews and preparation
  • You will be focused on and working towards your KPIs. Commission and several incentives, such as fully paid lunch club in a Michelin star restaurant or 5K Rolex or designer handbag competition, will reward you for your hard work and effort and hitting those targets.


For a career in recruitment you need to be resilient and able to cope well in a fast-paced and competitive environment. Previous experience in such an environment will be an advantage.

As this is a sales-based position the ideal candidate is driven by results and targets as well as able to work independently. You have to be hard-working and self-motivated to be able to push yourself to hit the targets. Great time management and organisation is key for a successful candidate.

Speaking Finnish, Swedish, Norwegian or Danishto a professional level is essential.


  • Uncapped commission + bonus
  • Fast career progression (in two years you could be on the way to becoming a manager)
  • Monthly fully paid Lunch clubs in a Michelin star restaurant in London
  • Gym membership
  • Annual winners' trip (Las Vegas, Caribbean, etc.)
  • Free breakfast everyday
  • 5k Rolex/handbag competition
