We're on the hunt (we will find you) for a passionate and dedicated Junior Recruiter to join the Secret Escapes family! You’ll play a vital role in helping us attract the very best talent for the business and will own full 360 recruitment processes from role brief to offer negotiation. 

About Secret Escapes

Secret Escapes is the UK’s biggest members-only website that runs best-in-market flash sales of four and five star hotels and holidays worldwide. We offer our members exclusive rates of up to 60% off.

We're looking for grafters and self-starters to join the gang, who can keep up with the pace and want to make a difference. We still work in relatively small teams, so there's no room for coasting along. We're friendly, happy, and most importantly, we work hard. We're not afraid to get our hands dirty and we're all madly passionate about our brand.

Things you should know

If you aren’t up to date with The Circle and The Confession, there may be spoilers! We’re obsessed with both ….. You may also put on a couple of pounds (woops!) when joining our team. We have a ‘snack desk’, dedicated to things we shouldn’t really be snacking on...Lola’s cup-cakes, chocolate, bread and Carr’s cheese melts, although there has been a recent trend towards salted caramel M&M’s (yes they do exist). You’ve been warned!
