“I joined Provide’s Academy of Excellence to learn about the job, which set me in excellent stead for my career.”
We believe that your work life should be as rewarding, fun and exhilarating as your home life.
With the average person spending 90,000 hours working in a lifetime, we feel those hours should be spent with great people, doing a job you love, with a few perks to spoil you along the way.
If you’re looking for a new way to spend your work life, in a company where you can soar to heights that haven’t been set, we want to speak to you.
At Provide you can give your salary, job description, work life, home life and social life a big boost.
Whether you’ve excelled in recruitment previously or you’re a complete newbie, we’re looking for people with great personality, drive, negotiation skills and emotional intelligence (EI) to join our family and take our business to the next level.
If you’re the one we’re looking for and you can connect with our values, we’ll create a job around your strengths, train you, give you the tools and support you need to get you to where you want to be, trust you, and reward you with the best perks in the business.
If you think you’ve hit your peak in recruitment,
you’re not dreaming big enough.
If you’re a good recruiter frustrated and hindered by your current environment, with a drive and ambition that craves for more than bigger targets and a larger team from your next promotion, it’s time to join the industry’s most exciting recruitment programme. It’s time to go from Good to Great!
Provide is a company that’s going places. We’ve always been entrepreneurial and ambitious and we’ve never let anything limit us in our success. When there’s no ceiling, there’s always more to achieve. Sound familiar?
Our Good To Great programme not only rewrites the traditional recruitment career path – it allows you to rewrite your career in any way you want. It’s yours to shape so where do you want to go with it?
We’ll give you complete autonomy to make decisions about your market, your team and your own P&L. You’ll be treated as an equal in the business and trusted to grow your division, taking your team and our company into new markets and opportunities.
It’s not about the money. This role assumes you’ve already got what it takes to be a high performer. Financial reward is a given. This is more than that. It’s about having a vested interested in a business you’ve built, with the support of our Directors, our GDC and the team you choose, to give you the life you want.
If you want to be inspired by your next company, surrounded by others like you, and excited by a provable, scalable career growth programme, you need to join us and walk alongside the best at Provide.
The Provide Academy of Excellence takes people with zero experience in recruitment on an intensive course to become incredible, high performing consultants within a very short space of time.
With a reputable 3-month programme of hands-on training in the working environment, we’ll give you the tools and techniques to win big in recruitment. On graduation, you’ll be fast-tracked straight into a career plan to help you become the next £million biller and future leader in our business.
We also continually invest in our people with ongoing training throughout their career at Provide including Recruiter Training, Management Skills, Director Development and Black Belt Sourcing Training.
We go far beyond just offering great salaries, commissions and bonuses. Our perks are much more than fringe benefits – they’re life enhancements!
With a Wild Card system to use on those days when you just need a little longer in bed or some extra time to deal with personal errands, you don’t need to sacrifice your life for work.
Birthdays are banned from Provide (in the nicest sense). You’re not allowed to come into work (unless you really, really want to). Everyone celebrating a birthday is allowed the day off in addition to annual holiday.
Healthy food equals happy minds so we make it that bit easier to achieve your 5 a day by supplying fresh fruit in the office every single day.
Staying fit keeps energy and positivity high so take advantage of the gym membership we provide and the 20 minutes extra at lunch for going to the gym.
Need some advice on health and nutrition? Our professional lifestyle coach will give you all the advice you need to achieve a better you.
As parents ourselves, we try to make life a little easier for you if you have children by providing flexible working hours.
We believe in family at Provide and encourage families to join us at our company events throughout the year. We don’t want you to miss on special time with those closest to you.
Half Day 100: Hit target over the quarter and enjoy a half day off with the team and £100 to spend having fun. Race your colleagues in go-karts or buy those shoes you’ve had your eye on, its up to you!
Time to Fly: Every year we fly the best of the best overseas for an all-expenses-paid trip of a lifetime.
Refer a friend to us and receive £500 to spend on a slap-up meal.
Gatecrash the Directors’ social life. If they’re out and about, meet up with them and join in the fun. They’re a sociable lot and always enjoy spending time with friends from the office.
Giving Back: If you’re passionate about giving something back to your local community, we’ll support you. In partnership with Community Action: MK, we’ll give you one day per year, fully paid, to volunteer and help others, whether that’s giving food to the homeless of driving the elderly to a hospital appointment. It’s up to you.
And that’s just a taster of how we’ll spoil you at Provide.
“Everyone is so understanding at Provide. I have never felt like just a number. My work colleagues have become my friends and they help me to push on through with my career here.”
“I have never experienced any company like Provide before. The team and the people really make it a nice environment to work.”
“If you do well here and prove yourself, you can manage your own desk. I joined Provide as a Senior Recruitment Consultant and am now a Principal Consultant running my own division!”
“I love recruiting at Provide because my success and reward is based on merit, not on longevity in the company.”
“Everyone can talk to the Directors and owners; there are no restricted lines of communication in the company. Compared to the corporate recruitment background I came from, this is really refreshing and results in a flexible, progressive work environment.”
“The company is always moving forward and to do that we continually ask our staff for input. We like to get everyone involved on how we can do things better.”
“Even though the IT recruitment industry is daunting, Provide managed to teach me how to tackle it properly which was so refreshing.”
“You could tell the training was an accredited scheme because of all the great information in the course. I still use the training materials today, two and half years later, as it is such a good reference guide for the job.”
“I joined Provide’s Academy of Excellence when I was 18 years old as I didn’t have any previous experience in recruitment. Straight away, Provide gave me the tools I needed to do the job rather than just throwing me in the deep end to figure it out for myself.”
“My colleagues and the Directors here are like a family. I know others who work in recruitment elsewhere who have the polar opposite experience to mine with management and colleagues. Provide really cares about us.”
“There is such a great work life balance at Provide, and a flexible culture of working that has given me great support as a working mum. Many companies pay lip service to that but Provide live it.”

“I love Provide. It has a great work hard/play hard attitude that fits well with my personality.”
“There’s a real family feel at Provide. Everyone looks after each other – from the top down. There’s very much a culture of belonging throughout the business.”
“The rewards and perks are amazing. I’ve been quad biking and clay pigeon shooting which are both fun – and random. I would have never have done those activities left to my own devices but they were great rewards for doing well.”
“Working at Provide has allowed me to do things I would have never thought I’d do. I can buy what I want and go where I want because of this job. Sometimes I have to pinch myself. It’s hard to believe sometimes. It’s a great feeling to know I can really do this!”
“We celebrate successes and really pat people on the back for turning things around. People want to be here and do well. I’ve seen Provide genuinely change the lives of people who work here.”
“I get better rewards than anyone I know outside of work and my improved communication skills have given me a real confidence boost.”
“We have a lot of fun at Provide. Spontaneous team nights are brilliant for shaking off a tough day.”
