Who we are:

We are a leading consultancy with the aim of inspiring sustainable business. Many of our clients are sector leaders on sustainability and supply chain issues and we are proud of our reputation for leading the thinking in this area.

Our Sustainability Tool is now used in some of the most high-profile construction and infrastructure projects in the UK. Our clients implement the Sustainability Tool to manage the ESG performance on their projects, in their supply chains and internal operations.

The Python Django Developer Role:

The Tool, which you will be supporting, helps our clients to efficiently collect sustainability data from their business divisions, project teams and supply chain organisations. The information is crunched to produce sustainability dashboards with key performance indicators measured against our client targets. By using our platform, organisations can now ensure their teams and supply chain partners comply with their environmental and socio-economic standards. This is driving transparency and accountability to better deliver on sustainability strategies.

We’re Talent Acquisition Specialists that founded change in 2005. Since then we’ve helped over 2500 clients grow, prosper and lead.

# Our Story

Frustrated by poor experiences with traditional agencies, our founders (just two regular candidates), decided that the outdated industry needed modernising and a new balance of power. In 2005, a new kind of agency model was born, putting the client and candidate at the heart of the experience whilst removing the pushy sales, schmooze and high fees.

# What makes us different?

Aside from a sensible fee model, custom technology and a direct unhindered path to candidates we…

…don’t sell candidates and we don’t sell jobs: we facilitate relationships and champion the process of ‘organic hiring’ to help create stronger and longer-lasting engagements.

# Who we work with

With an industry reputation for delivering results we are the go-to talent finders for tech start-ups to global brands who all demand the best service and talent.

From business owners hiring 2 people a year to Internal Recruiting teams hiring 200+ people a year, RR sources talent across all sectors and levels.

# Reputation

Our expertise has also been called upon by some of the leading job boards including the UK’s No1.

Recruitment Revolution is a member of the REC with a 100% compliance pass rate and holds a Feefo 5* Platinum Award for Service.
