We’re a specialist recruitment business that focuses on ingredients and nutrition, across the human and animal markets. It’s really niche, we work internationally, and our average fee is five figures. Two-thirds of our revenue came from retained work last year. We were formed in 2019, but our two owners have been recruiting for over 25 years between them. Every single client we dealt with in 2020 came back to us in 2021. We’re believers in results, not regimes. But that’s enough about us for now, here’s the good bit.

Our quarterly commission scheme tops out at 50% – if you want to see it before we have a chat, drop us a message and we’ll send you a copy of it. We’ve yet to see one more lucrative.

Where your career goes at 1485 is in your hands. We’re ambitious, and you need to be ambitious too. But where that ambition takes you and how it fits in with our growth plans…well, ultimately you’ll have a massive say in that. We’ll be happy to talk you through what we’re looking to achieve over the next five years if we meet up.

Our HQ is in a converted cotton mill in North Leeds – there’s free parking, a kitchen, a meeting room, a dining area, a lounge…and not a beanbag in sight. But if you’re experienced, we’re happy for you to be home-based, if you’d prefer.

We’re open-minded when it comes to your experience – for us, attitude is far more important. So you might be looking at recruitment for the first time, or you might be ten years in to a successful recruitment career. When we talk about attitude, what do we mean? We mean you’re customer-focused. You take pride in your work. You do the right thing, even if it’s detrimental to you. You recognise that your reputation is everything. You take accountability. You have fun along the way.

We’re a bit different to most recruitment companies – look at our adverts, for one. If you like to inject some personality into your role, that’s what this industry is crying out for and you’re likely to excel here. Get in contact for a chat and we’ll talk to you about what we mean.

PS. If you’ve got a second language, awesome, that’ll help. But if you don’t, it won’t hinder you, either.


Here’s what you need to do

If you believe you’ve got the right attitude to thrive here, and we sound like the sort of company you’d enjoy working for, either send us your CV, or if you’d prefer, give us a call in the first instance and we’ll have a chat.
