At Cobalt we go to great lengths to make your environment an attractive place to build your career. We feature in the Sunday Times Top 100 Best Small Companies to Work For.

We understand that money and rewards are the main reasons that the best recruiters come to work every day; that is why we offer an outstanding uncapped commission scheme that really rewards success. Together with a competitive salary and an attractive range of incentives and benefits, this will hopefully make working for us a rewarding experience for you. This is a fantastic opportunity to work within a successful, market-leading organisation that rewards each individual on their own merits.
