Join The Onset

Discover the freedom of not fitting in

Grow your career with us

We’ve come this far by challenging the norm.

At The Onset we genuinely care about what we do. Quality matters. So do the results. Join a team that’s all about winning the right way, together.

We’ve learnt that the best teams are diverse in thinking, background and experience. Forget about culture fit, we’re motivated by culture add! We’re united, have each other’s backs and are driven by doing a great job for our customers. At the same time, you could say we’re pretty eclectic and welcome experienced recruiters who love to make things happen.

The icing on the cake

The perks of being part of the crew

Mentorship, training & events

We always want you to feel like you’re moving forward. That’s why we created the Be Your Own Hero program where you’ll be challenged to step outside of your comfort zone with training, personal development and events. We know this is where you’ll grow.

Wellbeing initiatives

Your wellbeing is important to us – join the Onset and you’ll receive healthy office snacks, flexible working environment and wellbeing activities.

Work from anywhere

We run everything in the cloud so working from home or the park isn’t a problem. Day one of joining you’ll have a Mac and iPhone to ensure you can perform at your very best. We’re early adopters, so expect the best tech and tools at your fingertips.

Great incentive schemes

Our induction programme is second to none and you’ll feel part of the team from the very beginning. Oh and our sales incentives are pretty great too!

Be a part of it

Are you ready for a change? Grow with us on our journey.

"Being happy is good, but it can lead to complacency. Being excited is better - that’s what you’ll get here. Expect to challenge yourself and achieve things you never thought possible."
Guiding principles

The things we believe in, and put into practice everyday


We believe when we’re challenged we grow. And when we grow our customers grow.

Go all out

We bring the maximum with every action and push the limits of our capability.


We show dedication to each other, our work and our customers.

Own it

We take responsibility and accountability for our actions. We make an impact.

Keep it real

What you see is what you get. We work with honesty, integrity and transparency.

We like to win

We rise to the occasion, win together and celebrate hard.

Work your way

Define your career path

If you want to be a top performer, lead a team, open new markets, or develop a deeper specialisation, with us you’ll get there. Even as a startup, some of the industry’s strongest recruiters choose The Onset. Why?

As much as we like to think it comes down to our winning personalities, in reality it has more to do with our mature environment, commercial acumen, inclusive culture and market-leading commission model. We even offer financial planning to help you balance your finances and invest for your future.

We’re a passionate and committed team. We know that great recruiters like working with great recruiters. You’ll perform at your best surrounded by other purpose-led, engaged professionals. For us, it’s about the 1%’ers – honing our craft every step of the way, always bettering ourselves, taking what we do seriously. If you value the same, then this could be a great place for you.
